Over 5,000 anglers spent a chilly two and a half hours ice fishing on Six Mile Bay Saturday afternoon in the Devils Lake Volunteer Fire Department’s Ice Fishing tournament.

This year was the 34th year and a whopping $325,000 in prizes were given out for those angling and purchasing raffle tickets.

Fire Chief Jim Moe says the tournament made more than $130,000 for the city’s fire department, which will go to help purchase a new heavy-duty custom made rescue vehicle, already ordered.

For all the results from the raffle drawing, see today's print edition of the Devils Lake Journal.
