Reel Fun Ice Fishing Tournament to take place on Grand Lake this weekend

ALPENA, Mich. — Everyone interested in getting in some ice fishing while you still have time, this weekend is your chance. The Reel Fun ice fishing tournament is this Saturday in Presque Isle Twp.

There are more than 1,200  pre–drilled holes ready to be used on Grand Lake. If you’re concerned with this weekend’s unseasonably warm forecast, the host of the event has stated the ice is 15 to 16 inches thick. In order to participate you will need a fishing license and will be required to follow DNR guidelines.

If just fishing isn’t enough for you, there are more than $1,500 in prizes on the line that you don’t want to miss out on. Fishing will start at noon.
