Who else it going to Victoria's contest on Sunday? I'll be able to go and fish this one. I'm hoping for a big slimer to take first. I've actually hoped that for the last 15 years and have only gotten a dinky sunny one of those years.

I may be there. More than likely I will fish the Lake Ann contest on Saturday, but if I can swing Sunday as well, then I'll be there. Good Luck!

Temperatures much better this year. Last year I think the high was 0 degrees and the wind was blowing something fierce. I laid on the ice most of the time (I was pretty hung over from the lake ann contest the day before). I caught one fish with 5 minutes left to go. 0.09oz perch, tiny. Got me second place, 200 bucks to a local butchery. I've been enjoying this for awhile. See you out there.

Boo Boo,

Think Jerry and I will probably be there. hopefully they'll have as good of a turn out as you guys did. Weather sounds good, seems kind of odd for both tourney's to get good weather in the same year! See ya at the big one. ;\)

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
