Explore Alexandria is excited to sponsor Ice Fishing Challenge 2013. Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes, and with all of that water around, there is bound to be incredible fishing year-round. This winter, the Seratoma Club is proud to host Minnesota’s second largest ice fishing tournament on February 9 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Lake Le’Homme Dieu in Alexandria.
Those in the fishing tournament hope to catch the heaviest fish of the day and quickly. In the event of a tie in weight, the first fish caught will be superior. Fisherman can only win prizes for their heaviest fish, which means 100 different fishers will win cash prizes.

Kids will also be able to fish on Lake Le’Homme Dieu that day. Professional fisherman, Mike Frisch will be hosting the Youth Fishing Expo for kids under 16 from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. before the tournament begins.
