BRAINERD -- The largest ice fishing event in the world has cleared its final hurdle.

The Crow Wing County Sheriff's Department says ice conditions on Gull Lake's Hole in the Day Bay are safe enough to hold the annual Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza next weekend.

The world-renown fishing contest has drawn more than 10,000 people annually for over 25 years.
