Somerset ice fishing

The sixth annual Somerset Youth Athletic Association's (SYAA) 2010 Bass Lake Ice Fishing Contest is scheduled Saturday, Feb. 27. The grand prize is a new 4x4 pickup truck. As in previous years, there will be a separate kids' division and prizes for the top 50 fish registered. Because of the problems uncovered last year there will be a more noticeable security presence to help ensure the fairness and integrity of the contest as well as a mandatory post contest interview of the grand prize winner by a security professional. Bass Lake is located two miles south of Somerset and about nine miles northeast of Hudson. The contest is a 100 percent catch and release contest -- all fish are caught, registered and released quickly to help ensure their survival. For more information go to
