1 post in this topic


Mantorville, MN Sept. 8, 2007 9:00 AM

The "Kids Fishing Contest" will be held during Marigold days again this year. Marigold Days is fun for the whole family. At the contest there are giveaways and prizes for the kids, giveaways in the past have included tackle, rod/reel combos, line, minnow nets, etc. Prizes have been bikes, nicer rod/reel combos, tackle boxes with tackle, trophies, etc. ((From reading other posts I will not mention sponsers/donators on here.)) Prizes for biggest fish. It is seperated by age groups. Make sure you check it out with your little ones! Marigold Days is a fun weekend (2nd weekend in Sept. 8 & 9) Fishing contest starts 9:00 AM on the 8th, come early to get a good spot! The contest is held on "Goat Island" (not an island anymore) but fishing is done above the spillway/dam in Mantorville.


You will need to get into a good sucker or carp to win, last year 8 year and 4 year old bros had 23" and 25.75" suckers to win biggest fish! Older group was a 2o+" sucker. Like alot of places bring corn and crawlers for best action!!

I fished here this morning with the Dodge County 4H club "Clover Buds", and these kids had fun, mostly small gills and bullheads. Can you say tangled, wind knot mess? Ok now multiply by 10!

      We're a little over a week away from the 6th annual LCRA Ice Fishing contest on Lake Gervais in Little Canada, MN! Lots of great prizes, over $10,000 in prizes and raffle. Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas. We also fund scout projects, playground equipment and many types of sports equipment for area teams.   For more information on the LCRA or to register for fishing, go to

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.
