State Patrol to target Nisswa highway during ice fishing contest

State Patrol officials say they'll have extra officers on DWI enforcement duty Sunday for the $150,000 ice fishing contest on Gull Lake.

They're paying overtime to have more officers in the area for the 23rd annual Brainerd Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza, held at Gull Lake’s Hole-in-the-Day Bay.

State Patrol Lt. Joe Dwyer said in a news release:

"This area has been selected as the primary enforcement zone due to the anticipated influx of motorists traveling to and from the area for the event."

Hwy. 371, from Baxter to Walker, will be the focus of the watchful patrol eyes.
