1st annual MESA fishing contest 1/17/05 Grand Lake

Recommended Posts

only-eyes

We (minnesota electrical students assossiation) and the St. Cloud Tech College are hosting an icefishing contest with all proceeds going to the local food shelf. The contest is Monday january 17th at the public access, starting at noon and ending at 3pm with prizes awarded at 3:15. Prizes will be awarded in order for the biggest fish weighed in and scattered through out the place list, the biggest przes will not nessessarily be for the top places, with extra prizes drawn by ticket number for spots not filled by fish. Some of the wonderful prizes include a clam fish house, vexlar, several $100 dollar gift certificates, $50 gift certificates, $25 gift certificates, oil changes, jackets and other clothing, along with many other prizes and some yet to be submitted. Some sponcers include....Many great sponcers. which I don't think I can list for advertising reasons of this website, which is understandable. There will be a maximum of 149 tickets sold so your odds of winning something are pretty good. Food, beverages(non-alcoholic)will be for sale. Restrooms, and parking will be provided. The cost is $10 in advance and $12 at the contest. It is really more of a donation, because the money is going to the food shelf. So if you are interested meet us at the access for a day of fishing and fun, plus the just down right good feeling of knowing your entry fee is going to a good cause. Thanks for reading this and hope to see you there, it might also be a good chance to meet fellow FMers.

Are all of the holes already pre-drilled or is it just going to be set up on a certain part of the lake and you can go anywhere in that part, or the entire lake? Sounds like a good time just dont know if I will be in town!

You say there are only 149 tickets being sold, does that mean there will only be a maximum of 149 anglers or is that only for the raffle. and are the holes over the whole lake or just in the public access area?? hopefully see you guys out there!!!

yes there will be only 149 tickets available to contestants, there is not a raffle unless we do not fill all of the prizes with fish. Some people are buying 2 tickets for 2 holes, so it will even be less then the maximum of 149 anglers.Then the remaining prizes will be drawn off by ticket number. The contest is 1 hole per ticket, and 1 prize per ticket if you catch fish, or for the drawing. The holes will be drilled in a designated area and people can only fish within that designated area. Also I do not believe fish houses are going to be allowed for the honesty factor involved, so dress warm. I'll be out there from 8am till 4pm braving the elements. Hope to see a few of you out there.

I really would of liked to be there, but why on a Monday?

Don't people have to work these days?

Hopefully next year it will be on the weekend.

With that said, any big fish caught?

We had a great turnout for the condidtions, and raised over $1000+ dollars for the food shelf. 35 fish took prizes and 5 were drawn off that didn't get claimed by fish caught. Several people caught multiple fish, but you could only register your biggest fish per ticket bought. The reason it was on a monday is because it was going to be a school event, but we ended getting a private insurance pollicy (after trying to deal with the school pollitics)so we could open it to the public, but this was after the day was already set so next year it will be on a weekend. I would like to say thanks to all of you that made it out and thanks to the staff at fishing minnesota for letting us post the event. Thanks only-eyes

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      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?

      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.
