Site of contest is the East acess just north of Elysian.Tickets can be purchased on the lake or in any business place in Elysian prior to the contest. A 1 dollar chance will give you a chance at one of the cash prizes from a $1000- #50. If you fish a chance for one of the cash prizes for biggest.2nd,3rd,4th.5th and 6th. It also includes a chance for merchantdize prizes which will be drawn every 30 seconds.And finally it is good for a cup of stew served at the main booth on the lake. I just hope the fishing is a little better than the Otter run had.

Typically as with all fishing contests, use of houses is usually only permitted outside the fishing area and only to be used as warming shacks. That is how it was stated last couple years from what I remember, but no you can't fish inside a house while in the contest. Hopefully I'll be out there this year, but with the new little one we had earlier in January, I haven't gotten out much this season. I never win but the stew is well worth sitting out in the cold for.

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
