big northern pike lexingtonThis fish was the big winner at the Lexington Ice Fishing Contest last weekend. The fish weighed 12 pound 4 ounces and measured 36 inches long. The fish was worth $150 to John Williams and Ralph Kinsley, the two anglers who won the event. According to the press, over 24 anglers participated in the fishing tournament. Team of Josh Quain and Vito Palazzolo, both from Emmett, received $40 for catching the longest perch. All proceeds from the fishing contest are used to purchase fish to stock in the Black River near Croswell's Swinging Bridge. Kind of a good idea huh? More fishing contest should be held this way!
