Time: 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM CST
Event Description:

Annual Portside Bait & Liquor Mille Lacs PERCH EXTRAVAGANZA fishing contest.

Calling the perch in Lake Mille Lacs “big” is an understatement. They’re jumbo, super-sized, and hungry. Not to mention there are plenty of them to go around.
 
In this year’s 34th annual Perch Extravaganza tournament, more than 5,000 people are expected to join the fun for this, the second largest ice fishing contest in Minnesota.
 
Sponsored by Portside Bait and Liquor and held at Nitti’s Hunter’s Point Resort north of Isle, this contest allows anglers to go anywhere on the lake, and nearby resorts plow roads and provide maps so contest-goers have easy access to fishing hotspots.
 
Event organizers say the largest perch ever caught in the contest was 1 pound, 12 ounces, and it typically takes a perch well-over 1 pound to place in the top 10.
 
The Perch Extravaganza is considered the last hurrah to the Mille Lacs ice fishing season. Cost is $20 for an entry button, which is good for both the fishing contest and prize drawings afterward.
 
In total, hundreds of prizes will be awarded, to both the top 10 contest finishers as well as drawing winners. Prizes will include Ice Castle fish houses, cash, flat screen TVs, fishing electronics, underwater cameras, drones and more.
