Last nights Wall -Mart Kids Fishing Derby is now complete

The 28 boys and girls[number was down from52 from last year]was again a success.

The top fisherperson caught 20 fish tying the record for our I and half hour contest.

The largest fish was caught by our youngest angler.

Half the fisherpersons were girls.

Again besides prizes of rods and reels,t-shirts ,hats,and lots of tackle the Charlie Carver cash Awards went out[thanks Charlie]

The moving back one week so the new playground could be built was pretty much the reason for declining attendance as this week evening baseball and softball etc started and many of the kids with prioritys in place were off to their games.

Next year we will be back in the week of no other evening sports.

The new playground is fantastic[hats off to the Figenskaus seed and persistence in getting this built]

The kids did a group photo so you sponsors will be getting a print of this.

Again thanks, next kids tourney July 14 from 12 to 2 at Saulbury Beach Landing,it to is free thanks to sponsors,

Kids you can preregister starting now so we can get prizes and grab bags ready.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
