Almost put my truck in the ditch on the way to contest this morn. and decided to stay home. Roads were pretty rough . Did both contests go on then? Any fish caught?

Yeah, the roads were bad. Wife made a grocery run and said they were rough while the St. Olaf contest was going on. Said it looked they parked a lot of vehicles on the ice to block the wind. Didn't hear about any fish yet. Was busy in the barn today. Maybe hear tomorrow morning during coffee. You know anything about the Beaver Lake contest critterman?

Got the lowdown on the St. Olaf contest: 330 holes drilled by club members, all holes used, estimated 200 cars on the ice. Winning fish was a 7 lb. 4 oz. northern, second was a crappie, 3rd a bluegill. Had to confirm the info w/my sources as we didn't want to be telling any fish tales. grin.gif

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
