Eight-year-old boy wins boat at 2018 Minnesota Bound Crappie Contest

Eight-year-old Lincoln Erickson won this boat at the 2018 Minnesota Bound Crappie Contest on Lake Minnetonka.

The newest boat owner on Lake Minnetonka won't be able to drive his watercraft, but he'll surely be fishing off it.

Eight-year-old Lincoln Erickson left the 2018 Minnesota Bound Crappie Contest Saturday with a brand new AlumaCraft after winning the competition's secret weight contest, catching a fish that was .93 pounds around 1:10 p.m. according to a post on the event's Facebook page. The boat also comes with a motor, a trailer and a fish finder. 

The annual Crappie Contest attracts hundreds to Lake Minnetonka, though this year's event was rescheduled to Sunday from May 5 due to lingering ice.
