Lake Elmo Lions ice fishing event set Feb. 3 on Lake Jane

LAKE ELMO — Mother Nature has cooperated with frigid temperatures, enabling the Lake Elmo Lions Club to hold its annual ice-fishing contest from 1 to 3 p.m. Feb. 3 on Lake Jane located north of Minnesota Highway 5 on Jamaca Avenue.

The popular contest returns this year after mild weather and thin ice forced the club to cancel last year’s event.

Tickets are available at numerous Lake Elmo businesses prior to the contest for $4, with a $5 admission the day of the event.

A ticket gets individuals on the ice and a chance to win “a prize a minute,” as well as the grand prize drawing of $1,000 cash. Cash prizes will also be given for the three largest fish caught during contest.

Event co-chairman Dave Leikam encourages everyone to purchase tickets to ensure continued support of deserving local programs. Visit www.facebook.com/LELionsIFC for more information.

For more than 50 years, Lake Elmo Lions Club volunteers have been involved in a vast variety of projects important to the needs of the community. Interested adults are welcome to visit future eetings held at 6 p.m. on the first and third Mondays of each month at Gorman’s Restaurant.
