Depends on your state of residence. If you're a MN resident, a MN license will do but you cannot buy an SD non-resident license only - you must buy the license of your resident state if you live in either MN or SD. If you're visiting from a state other than MN or SD, it doesn't matter, but the only bait shop around is in Ortonville. Hope this helps. Good luck!

or buds in brownsvalley?? this sounds like a fun deal. Looks like a big field this year; how many participated last year? I think I may need to find a partner. Family cabin is near linden beach, should work great!

It was a full field of 100 boats last year. They decided to raise it to 150 boats this year. That's a lot of boats! It's a great tournament.

Hi Does anyone know if their is any spots left in the tourney. We were going to be in a Green lake tourney later in the year but it was cancelled because of health problems that the director was having and we want to get in at least one this year. Thanks for your replies!

AS of 3/19/08 there are 114 teams signed up, out of 150. So there is still some room to get in. It is a very fun tourney, for only $100 a boat very cheap tourney just to have some fun and get a shot at some money.

I fished this tournament last year. It was VERY well run and a ton of fun. I was truely surprised at how quickly they got 100 boats inspected and in the water. The tournament staff did a wonderful job at staging, getting boats in the water quickly, and getting boats out of the water. If it wern't for other committments my family has I wouldn't think twice about entering this tournament. I had a blast last year.

The MN vs SD ribbing was good times, also.

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
