St Olaf today? If so did it go on as sceduled? I've been kicking around the idea of going to Beaver tomorrow so just getting a heads up.

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 wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).
