About 1,000 anglers were on the ice at Cedar Lake Saturday for the first annual fishing contest to benefit New Richmond athletics.

The Cedar Lake Ice Challenge was organized by the New Richmond Coaches Association. Money raised will be used to offset costs for athletic programs in the area.

With all the people fishing, it was surprising that only one fish was pulled in for the contest.

Mark Gjovig, Dresser, hauled in a .12 pound walleye to take the top prize -- a $5,000 ATV.

The remaining prizes were raffled off to the people who participated in the event. Organizers said they were please with the results of the first ever contest.
