I don't know if there is a web site but I found a poster on the 56572 (PR) blog. Raffle prizes: 1st place is 500.00 cash, 2nd place is 250.00, 3rd place is 150.00, 4th place is 125.00 and 5th place is 75.00

Prizes in each category: 1st place

Walleye-Vexilar (unknown which one)

Northern-Underwater camera (unknown which one)

Bass-Portable fishhouse (unknown which one)

Panfish-instant read hand held depth finder

2nd place

walleye Instant read hand held depth finder

Northern Mr. Heater

Bass Mr. Heater

Panfish Mr. Heater

It just says 10.00 a ticket. I dont know if that is the entry fee or for the raffle

Hey, WTN4ICE, wouldn't it be sort ironic if you won one of those Mr. Heaters as a prize.

The 10.00 covers the entry fee & puts you in for the raffle. They usually sell additional tickets for several augers.There is also a contest for "most unique fishing site" whatever that means.I always liked this derby because the rules are fairly loose. You are allowed to drive out,bring a porty,bring the kids,enjoy a beverage, bring the grill,just have fun & mabey catch something.Some years a t-shirt was enough other times we sat in the vehicle with 1lb coffee cans with charcoal burning to keep the holes open.Last year was very cold & windy luckly I had moved my camper unit there a week earlier.There were a few die hards sitting on buckets. I don't rough it quite that much anymore.

There will be roads plowed over a large area in front of the access this is the derby area. You can punch holes anywhere you like. Again the rules are pretty loose.The forcast looks like a decent day mid 20s possible flurries.It's a good derby to bring the whole family to.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy. "   Just because you are not glowing doesn't mean its necessarily healthy for a fetus it takes awhile for it to build up in a healthy adult that's just my           Methylmercury exposure in Wisconsin: A case study series” (2005)
      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.
