Ice fishing contests

5 posts in this topic

I know its a little early to be thinking ice fishing but i would like to fish in a few contests this year in the duluth area and was wondering if anybody had any information or knew where i could get some on some contests on island, fish lakes etc. I have never entered an ice fishing contest so am just kind of looking for some general info. Might also have to give the Burntside Bash a try grin.gif.

United Northern Sportsmen has a contest sometime in January.

Theres usually a few on Fish Lake. The Kiwanis is one you shouldn't miss. Sorry don't have any dates but keep checking back in.

UMD puts on a contest on Pike lake called the Big Jig. Funds raised go towards UMD athletics.

Pike lake is the big jig. Fish lake the local snowmobile club has on in feb I think. Kiwanis has one at the end of feb. I think there is one on the river but that can be iffy.

Watch the ice fishing forum in early winter they should start posting dates for the state.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
