90% of the former drill team will be at the Wi. Cheesehead gathering this weekend. Maybe a bit more notice next year? I called about this weeks ago but nobody got back to me. Hopefully you guys can find half a dozen guys to help out.

Do they get a free entry ticket again this year? Im sure you will have no problems finding willing FMers.

To all FMers who fish this year you have HUGE shoes to fill. This event was won by FMers 2 years running. 2 years ago Poutslayer won 1st place and a new trailer. Last year BD110 won 1st place. What FMer will carry on the tradition this year?

Have fun and stay warm.

Any word on if Houses will be allowed this year?

Any word on the use of houses? Weather is supposed to be nice but ya never know. I guess what I will tel people is to bring your house and use it if they let you. If not no big deal.

Thanks for updating the list Tom.

Houses aren't allowed but in the past if temps were under 20 degrees then they would be allowed. Saturdays forecast is upper 20's so plan on fishing without shelter. If there is a change then I'll post it.

Can a guy buy 2 tickets and fish 2 lines?? also would be good on both tickets for any drawing that would happen?

the Big Jig only allowed you to win 1 prize even if you had 2 tickets..

just curious..

hunterlaker, Yes you can buy two tickets and win once on each ticket you have to look at bill poutslayer took first and then won the trailer on a drawing a few years ago. So yes and yes two you question.

Is there a designated ‘roped off’ area to fish in for this contest? What would be the best access on Fish Lake to use for this contest? As you can tell by my questions it has been years since I have been on Fish Lake but if it stays nice, I may bring the kids up.

Thank you

There will be an area coned off. Hi-Banks resort will be the closest access.

Drill Team: We'll see you at Eagles Nest 8AM for breakfast.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
