well that all depends on the year. They seem to get between about 500 and 1500 people/year depending on the weather. The largest fish I can remember are about 3lb northerns. The fish are small, but it is always a good time and good to support the local Fire guys!

i was wondering how they would do 1500 didnt they used to give 1st for each different species caught or has it been just by weight each year because it looks like total weight of the game fish

I'm not really sure I entered it last year for the first time... go to chaskafire.org and there is a link about all the rules and it tells more about it.. Its a blast.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      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.
