A record number of teams, 134, fished Gull Lake during the 8th Annual MN Fishing Challenge, a multi-species fishing tournament, June 4. The 2-person teams found most fish shallow, and every team caught fish on Gull Lake near Brainerd.

The teams raised a quarter million dollars to support Mn Adult & Teen Challenge drug and rehabilitation programs statewide. The cumulative amount generated via this family-friendly tournament since 2009 is $1.3 million.  Stu Nelson and Rich Brummer, Cloquet, set a stout record this year with the most ever raised by a team. They already have more than $92,000 on the books and more money coming in the pipeline.
