Organizers say this year's annual Devils Lake volunteer fire department fishing tournament was a roaring success. More than 4,000 anglers caught nearly 200 fish during this year's tournament. But those anglers weren't even a quarter of the 18,000 people who bought tickets for the annual fire department fundraiser. Most bought their tickets for the raffle after the fishing tournament. Fire Chief Jim Moe says the raffle capped a great day on the lake. The final numbers aren't in yet but the fire department usually raises more than $100,000 through the tournament each year.
