The 14th Annual Battle on Bago in Oshkosh is underway. It's the Midwest’s largest ice fishing tournament.

Anglers started weighing their fish this afternoon and the big fish fry just got underway.

"We've got raffle tickets, fishing tickets, you can catch a fish and come weigh in, and receive a big prize,” said Todd Reuss, Member and a Board of Director for Battle on Bago. “We've got two weigh-ins this year to try and mitigate for people that may be worried about contact. The weigh in here should go pretty quick as we've got it designed so that there's no line, and we can weigh in about 1600 fish per hour."

There's over $275,000 in prize money on the line at this year’s tournament.
