2024 Challenge Winner

The winner of the 2024 ice fishing challenge was Elliana Doll who mentored new ice angler Sarah Ostrom.

"Sarah and I, two 18-year-olds from Minnesota, took over the Sportsmen Club at the University of Mary here in Bismarck this year. Sarah had never been ice fishing before, and I had done it a couple times back home in MN. Thanks to a grant from the Game and Fish Department, we purchased a bunch of ice fishing poles and tackle for the club and went out on Lake Harmon. It was a fantastic experience and Sarah loved learning the new skill so much that we took the club back to the lake twice more over the following month!" - Elliana Doll
