Well it looks as if courthouse lake may be the only lake that possibly has any in it, however I called the fisheries manager and he said that they do not put any in there anymore because the past fish they put in there came from the state fair aquarium displays and they do not do that anymore due to disease spread possibility. The numbers they stocked in the past were so low anyways, you would be extremely lucky to tie into one of these few stocked adults from the fair. Looks like the next closest lake to have them is Grindstone lake in Pine county. Darn cry.gif

      169 overpass (293rd or county 9) north of Zimmerman...take the off ramp and go east (right) to county 19 take a right going south through the S curve and hang a left at the end of S curve on 289th Ave take that about 2 miles to Blue Lake Dr take a right and then take your first left a couple blocks later to the landing.

      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 www.lcraonline.org

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