The sixth annual Walleye Ice Fishing Challenge took place Jan. 25 on the Great Sacandaga Lake, with weigh stations in Mayfield at Lanzi's on the Lake and at the Broadalbin boat launch. The tournament once again was a sellout, with 1,750 fishing enthusiasts allowing for 250 more participants than in previous years. Approximately 54 percent of participants were from outside of Fulton County, including participants from 11 states and various parts of New York state. These participants spent money in our county on hotel rooms, fishing supplies, fuel, bait and tackle, food and refreshments, and much more. We are grateful to all of them, their families and friends for making our county their destination on that day, and hopefully to return to Fulton County on many more occasions.
