For info on local contests call Chalstroms, they usually get flyers and if they dont know try Scotty at Fishermans Corner. Highbanks Resort on Fish Lake would be my 3rd choice for info unless its on Fish Lake of course.

I will be stopping at the Northern Sportsman Contest and trying my luck on my way home from the Bash Sunday.

There is a contest being held out of High Banks Resort on Saturday the 26th. He has a flyer at the bar and I saw a flyer at Charlstroms bait. The contest is be put on by students from Denfeld High School and is a fundraiser for MDA.

There was talk of another contest on Fish lake for the same day that was to be out of Eagles nest put on by the local snowmobile club. From what I heard yesterday that contest had been canceled for what ever reason.

Hope that helps.

shiner,

You can save a ticket for me also. I'm not planning at this time to attend the event but the money helps support their operation if I'm correct.

My brother always attends that event so I may just have to stop by and say hi.

You got it Tom. If I remember correctly, you don't have to be present to win the cash drawings, so if you don't make it the organization still gets funds and you get a chance to win.

I went and didnt catch a thing. Didnt win a thing either. Bd110's Brother JR won the big fish prize with a 8 plus pound northern that he pulled out of Rice lake yesterday. ;\)

Just joking JR. Nice fish and good job man. Biggest fish I ever saw caught in that contest for sure.

I will say I wasnt thrilled about letting vehicles on the ice this year. Its much quieter and less crowded with out all the trucks and cars out there.

If they continue to let vehicles out they need to extend the boundries to 3 times the size. You will also see more fish caught I would think.

N-Lander your're absolutely right I don't konw how anybody caught anything. That 8lber didn't stand a chance, he probably was caught by the tail fin. ;-) I do think driving out is convenient. Its a big lake and at first glance expanding the territory would be a good thing with as many people that were there.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
