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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
