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.

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!

BIG DIESEL

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!

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
