13-Year-Old Boy Wins Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza
(Nisswa, MN) — A 13-year-old boy is the big winner in the annual Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza. Zac Padrnos of Hutchinson reeled in a nine-point-75-pound walleye Saturday which earns him a new Ford or G-M-C truck. The next largest walleye was five-point-67 pounds. More than 12 thousand anglers turned out at Hole In The Day Bay on Gull Lake despite freezing temperatures. Volunteers drilled 14-thousand300 holes in two hours. Officials say the ice fishing tournament has raised over four-and-a-half-million dollars for charities and nonprofits since 1991.
