This sounds like a good deal, Wiskers. You might want to post this info in the D.L. forum and the main ice fishing forum as well. Get the word out. I'm not sure I'll have this weekend open or not, but if I do I'd like to come up and meet you and some of the rest of the crew. Is Ed coming up for it? I'll have to ask him about that next time I talk to him.
One question, how much is it to enter? Might want to post that so people know. Sounds like a really fun event- good work!

Have fun Wiskers! I wish I could come, but my wife's got me signed up to play in a volleyball tourney for the weekend. It'll be fun, but not as much fun as fishin the Red Lake. Be sure and give us a report after the festivities are over.

Well we had a pretty good turn out for our first every Ice Buster Daze.....

We sold 67 tickets, Caught 3 fish.. 2 walleyes and one Sauger.

47 entries for the Radar runs.

The dance went over very well.

We had enough prizes for every fisherperson to get a prize of some sort and even onlookers got prizes.

Over all we think it was a success and have more ideas for next year.

I even seen two FMers here. Thanks for your support fellas. That is what this is all about.

Bruce,"Today's Tackle", did a great job and helped out a lot. We are excited about starting for next year alerady. Hope more of you can make it up here.

It was cold and fun. It was great to have pretty much everyone win something. Thanks to everyone who was involved in the event. Hopefully next year I can catch a fish.

Hey thanks fellas... Our goal was to make it as fun as it could be even if the fish were playing hard to get.

Three fish is not a whole lot but it was more fish than the Frosty Bobber this year.. At least that is a bonus. LOL...

Wroking on next year as of now..

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.
    • tacklejunkie
      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
    • gimruis
      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
    • Rick
      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!
    • Mike89
      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!  
    • Rick
      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.
