The Amvets Post 724 and NCO Club Ice Fishing Tournament took place on Lake Nokomis Saturday, Jan. 11.

The tournament was headquartered at Lake Nokomis boat landing on County Highway N, near Tomahawk. 

There was a good turnout and some nice fish were registered.

Participating ice anglers enjoyed a friendly competition and had a shot at some nice prizes. Also, they were benefitting a good cause.

All proceeds from the tournament go to support military members and programs.

Prizes were awarded to three places for walleye, northern, crappie, perch and bluegill.

Food and a chance to warm up were offered in the Amvets tent.
