St. Olaf contest is Sunday Feb. 10th, 2 - 3:30 pm., after the Beaver Lake contest. If the Beaver Lake contest gets rescheduled, believe it will be announced on KOWZ but not sure on the St. Olaf contest. In case of inclement weather, reschedule date for the St. Olaf contest is Feb. 17th.

Just got off the phone with one of the kingpins, St. Olaf contest is called off until the 17th & will be held from 2 - 3:30 pm. Beaver Lake contest rescheduled for same day from noon to 1:30 pm so you can still make both.

I don't think there is a fee, just options to buy raffle tix. I've made by every year with a couple of kids and not much more than $20 spent. That's with raffles, hot cocoas, & hot dogs bought. You can't go wrong!

they'd like you to buy a one dollar raffle ticket but no big deal. prizes for youngest and oldest fisherperson.lots of door prizes raffle for either a gas auger or portable fish house. bait and food provided and holes drilled. this is for beaver. st olaf is about the same. sounds like good weather this sunday.

Anybody been doing anything on either of these lakes for panfish/crappies? Looking to find some for the pan for supper Friday night if anyone is out and about. 3 or 4 of us plan to head down and try it out from Owatonna. We have never fished either lake and have no idea where to go. If anyone wants to offer any suggestions since we probably won't move much if any that would be great. Fish shallow? Deeper?

Thanks in advance. Email me if you prefer....: mcoien@fedins.com

I was out on Beaver today, no luck. However I did see two scuba divers who found an anchor and radio! Call me crazy but I think I'll stay ontop of the ice!

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.

      This year I will be able to leave Finn at home, so I can fish. @Cret Jigs @Shack Anyone I missed come and join the fun. Let's get this set so we have time draw a crowd!
