Tagged fish in Lake Fenton could bring you $5,000 in this ice fishing tournament. 

In Lake Fenton, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has tagged a very specific fish for the Lake Fenton Ice Fishing Tournament held Saturday Feb. 21. If you bring in this lucky little devil, you’re looking at $5K.

While the largest fish brought in will also yield a prize and the day is full of fun, many will be out from dusk until dawn hoping for a chance at the elusive tagged swimmer. Registration for the event begins at 6 a.m. and the tournament lasts to 4:30 p.m.

It is $20 to enter per person and offers ice skating, hot chocolate and good old family fun with a hint of competition.

The event expects anywhere from 300 to 500 participants.

A $5,000 fish might just be worth braving the cold for a day.
