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.

I will definatly be there. From the years past that you have fished this tournament, do the drill all the holes and is it restricted to a certain area?

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.

      Good evening,   i recently inherited a 12 foot aluminum boat, and I would like to re-do the interior. (Add carpet to the benches, possibly add marine grade plywood to the floor and carpet the floor as well.)   does anybody have any experience doing this, or recommend anybody that is good with this type of thing?    Trying to figure out if it's worth it to pay someone to do it, or try and figure out how to do it myself with no experience.    Anyways, thanks in advance!

      Nice bass Eyeguy. I can imagine that Northern was fun peeling out line and all on the yak lol.   Hit the miss on my way home.Was curious what was hanging out by a drain I often fished in the past.Found a few typical average sized bass and a sucker.Way to kill 15 minutes on my way home from work lmao.I love it

      Nice Fish ST! Loadmaster, I hope it was nothing major or serious that had you in the hospital.  I was just informed by the Chief of Staff that I get to do house projects this weekend..sigh..maybe Monday I'll get to go out.

      I went yesterday.  Bite was good.  Saw lots of people catching fish.

      Sorry...been posting a few pics in the Panfish section...I've been out a lot chasing crappies, started 10 days after ice out. I did the eye opener and we did good real shallow 4-6ft with jig and shiner but that one eye outing is it for me unless I go out late fall for them again.  Crappies bite has been real good...just not in normal spots...not many spawned in the shallow reeds but beds we deeper 5-7 ft in many lakes. I've been as far North as Little Bemidji to as far South as S. Lida and many lakes in between. Went out Saturday morning early and found them in 12.5ft suspended real high; used the smallest rap they make and just fan casted all around the boat and they were aggressive.  Cabbage is coming up and healthy in most lakes and they will be moving into the cabbage when it warms up. Water clarity has been unbelievable in every lake I've been on so far. Another yo-yo weather pattern makes it more challenging for sure....but search and you will find.

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.
