Correction from NAIFC panfish tournament story

The story on the North American Ice Fishing Circuit panfish tournament that went online on Sunday and ran in the Jan. 9 outdoor print section of the Echo Press mistakenly listed Scott Neumann and Eric Jaspersen as being Wisconsin anglers.

Neumann and Jaspersen are both from Alexandria. The duo finished fifth in the tournament with a total weight of eight crappies and eight bluegills coming in at 9.46 pounds. That top-five finish on Lake Darling earned the local anglers a spot in the NAIFC’s championship tournament that will be fished next December.   

Neumann also caught the big fish of the tournament, a 1.42 pound crappie.
