      The jig is up, and the lures are down

      The second annual Jig It Ice Fishing Extravaganza will take place in Dickinson County this Saturday, January 19.

      Registration for the event starts at 8 a.m. and the tournament is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The grand prize for the largest fish is $2,500 in cash, but there will be many other prizes as well.

      "We've really tried to make this a family event," said Tournament Coordinator Benjamin Wood. "We've got a special designated [kids'] area which was really popular last year. We've had some additional donations to help sponsor that kids' area this year, and I think that's just going to continue to grow."

      Registration cost for the event is $30 a hole. The special kids' area has available fishing equipment and the cost for the child is five dollars.

      Proceeds from the event will benefit the Dickinson-Iron Medical Care Access Coalition and Big Brothers/Big Sisters.
