Brrr! 10th annual Bass Lake contest is a frosty one
More than 700 hearty souls braved Saturday’s below zero wind chills for a chance to win $10,000 at the 10th annual Somerset Youth Athletic Association’s Ice Fishing Contest at Bass Lake.
According to event spokesman John Melvin, attendance was down from recent years due to the bitterly cold weather. However, many non-anglers came out on the ice to enjoy the food, beer and buy raffle tickets, which helped raise more money for the SYAA.
