Watch: Nearly 10,000 People Ice Fish for Charity | National Geographic ctm magazine

Can a frozen lake surface stay intact with 19,000 drill holes? Every year over 10,000 people descend on a frozen lake in Brainerd, Minnesota for what is billed as the world’s largest charity ice fishing competition. The Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza is completely volunteer run, and all proceeds are donated to charity. Over 19,000 holes are drilled in the ice, and while the goal is to catch the largest fishes, all that are captured are released live back into the water.

    how stupid to kill for charity

  • Mr Spork on March 17, 2017

    every year the ice gets thinner…what could possibly go wrong?

  • Sannidor on March 17, 2017

    I'm not against hunting but this is moronic and I'm baffled people don't feel the absurdity in torturing fish.

  • The Tanner Channer on March 17, 2017

    i was actually there!!! i live in northern minnesota, about an hour from where this is held.

    Guy says "we do release every fish we catch…85% of them do survive" So if they are catching 1000 fish per year then 150 fish die every year in the name of charity. When will people start having charity events that makes sense not harm?

    pathetic and cruel. this is the nature and state of the human race. no wonder we are spiralling rapidly towards extinctjon. bring it on; the sooner selfish, greedy, disconnected humans wipe themselves out the better.

    So many pussies in the comments… if you care so much about animals stop bitching in youtube comments and go join Greenpeace or some other organization.

  • Vatablous Devil on March 18, 2017

    It would kinda be funny for the ice to start breaking with all those people on it.

  • Bradley Tomlinson on March 21, 2017

    What if it cracked

  • VeganVixen on March 23, 2017

    I know someone who beats people and steals their money. But don't worry, he gives the money to charity and 85% of the victims survive the beating.
