Breezy Point Kids Competing For Big Prize
Participants come from around the country – and the world – for this, the Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza.
Levi and Casey Christianson have worked long and hard on their creation. They have been working on a new Tip-Up. They call it the IFishPro. With more and more tip-ups coming to the Extravaganza every year the competition is a fierce one.
Levi told the Brainerd Dispatch, “We were up ice fishing at Lake of the Woods. We were catching fish and my little brother hooked into a fish. He was bringing it in hand-over-hand and screwed up … The fish wanted to run and there’s no drag when you fish hand-over-hand.”
This was the beginning of the Tip-Up with a rod and reel.
