Governor plans to attend ice fishing event
Gov. Mark Dayton will fish at the Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza on Gull Lake Jan. 22, — the first governor to attend the popular event.
Last year, the 20th Extravaganza attracted more than 10,000 anglers to Gull Lake’s Hole-in-Day Bay.
Rep. John Ward, DFL-Brainerd, said Friday that Dayton’s appearance will help promote the event, attract Twin Cities media and indirectly help out the nonprofit agencies that benefit from the contest.
