Did anyone attended this derby. I drove by there on my way to go fishing and there were a ton of people out there. My buddie went to it. He didn't catch anything but said a 12lb northern won it. WOW!

That's what I figured with 10,000 lines in Gull Lake!

Was out there, what a zoo! Biggest fish was 12.8 pound northern, the one that won the house was a 1.3 pound northern, 33rd from the largest. Had fun though.

Dragon - only 5 people entered the hole drilling contest! My uncle's buddy won it using a skrikemaster 4 stroke. He was 8 seconds faster than 2nd place.

For the competition you had to pick your auger up off the ice, start it, drill 3 holes, and then lay the auger back down.

I was out there with some buddies... good times. We didn't catch anything but had fun nonetheless. Pretty good turnout - had to well over a 1,000 people. Only 5 people entered the auger comp... I was 5 minutes too late in registering for it. We did a time trial back at basecamp and I punched 3 holes in 25 seconds and the winner was 42 seconds I think. New gas auger was up for grabs too! We saw lots of fish on the camera but none of the biting variety. A pound and a half northern won the fish house but I'm not sure if it was the actual 33rd largest or the smallest if 33 were not registered. All in all a great time to be on the ice - would definitely do it again.

I fished the Derby. First time I fished this one. I caught a 1.585 northern which placed 32nd. One place off the grand prize. I did win a prize. An Ice Scooper. It was a good time. Nice to see a kid win the fish house.

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
