I was also there. I marked one fish before the contest which probably swam over to the guys hole next to me, who won it with the 8" perch. Went to the prize giveaway at the bar had a couple beers and a burger. Did'nt win a thing. Next year they need to have the prize give away at the lake rite on the ice.

It sounds like they put ya right in the middle of the bay? I grew up on the lake and can tell ya where every single rock, weedbed, and dock is.. I also have fished it relentlessly over the years.. the spot the tourney was in would have held crappies about 7-10 years ago and thats about it.. My buddy asked if i was coming home for it and i said absoluty not once i heard it was pre drilled holes.. Its a tough lake in the winter unless u know right where your going.. I am sure it was fun though..

Wonder what the condition of the ice is like out there today. With the rain we are getting up here you would think it would be a mess out there. I would sure like to get out there this evening to use my new Lowrance H2Oc. I have a few spots picked out I have not tried as of yet that look kind of promising, I just hope there is no perms in the area. I am going to go out later this afternoon and check it out and fish for a while past dark if I can get on the ice without getting stuck. Let you's know how I did.

      Hey Guys, I'm wondering what the water temp on the St.Croix is. I Haven't herd anything, all I know is that Catfish become inactive after it drops below 60F. I want to know if they have already become inactive, you would think we would at least have until October.    One more inquire,  anyone one know about a nice carp lake north of the metro. Most people don't like fishing for common carp, but they are a great fall fish to catch when they Get 30+ plus pounds.

      All right man I'll make sure to tell you how I do, I have also been looking at the sunrise river. The sunrise Looks like one of those rivers that all the local kids fished in the 80's, But then it got polluted and over fished. I'll Try the sunrise one of these days, I don't know what i'll catch,  Maybe it's like in the Simpsons with those Three eyed fish.    As for the rum river, I can't wait to fish that. I'll wait for a nice cold front when all those small mouth start to eat everything in site, They need the fat for winter. I'll make sure to tell you how it goes.
