The St.James contest is 10 to 1. Last year the prizes were a grill for first place and fish finder for 2nd, i don't remeber 3rd or if you had to pay to get in the contest. I heard you can't use your house but i'm not sure.

In my house, I have never seen so many crappies and sunfish come through at one time. Anywhere from 50 to a 100 and thats no lie. If the crappies can grow at a decent rate, this lake will be unbelievable in a couple of years.

Sounds like it has a very promising future if it gets managed properly. Were there any nice fish caught?

Ya seriously!!! They pick the worst spot on the lake. If it would of been anywhere else on the lake. There would have been tons of fish caught.

What part of the lake do they have the tourney on then? Is it fenced off? No shack fishing?

Unfortunately I am up at BSU so I couldn't fish the hometown tourney or Mt. Lake. I was shocked to hear no fish caught in the St. James tourney. I had excellent luck out their all Christmas break and pulled in some really nice pannies, and a few crappies. Where were the boundaries of it? Im just a bit shocked!

I also agree with the Mt. Lake statements.... Its a fun lake and if people practice some good catch and release techniques, those crappies should get really nice. The panfish aren't huge yet but when I fished it I saw a few nicer ones that were at least 8" Hopefully the crappies which were about 7" - 8" can keep growing also!

They had the tournament area just in front of where the 3rd dock goes. From 4ft deep to 11ft deep. We had our camera down it that area earlier in the year and it was a dead sea there.

I was in the big white house, with the satellite dish on it. Had a black reg cab chevy by it, and a 4 door red colorado. We were close to the middle of the lake. Evertime a vehicle, snowmobile or 4 wheeler came by, they were gone. I honestly have never seen anything like it before. Next year, I am getting farther away from everybody. Those fish don't like the noise. I am thinking we were in 7 ft of water although I never did check it out. They would suck it in there mouth and spit it out, so if you didn't have a camera or were not looking down the hole you would never know it.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
