The entry fee for the contest is $20.00 and there is a $10.00 Raffle ticket. You can use houses and they do have some hole drilled prior to the event. It starts at 1:00. It's not advertised like other Tournys due to a lack of budget but they get a bunch of faithfuls that attend every year. Only about 175 people so the odds are pretty favorable. Love to see ya out there I will be in the weigh house.

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
