Is there certain rules for fishing contest? My main ? is, can you use a fish house? Use 2 lines? I have never fished a contest before, I have a friend that wants to go also, just not sure what all takes place.

You cannot use fish houses, or fish with 2 lines. You can use electronics, but must fish within the designated area. All the holes are pre-drilled (I'm one of the lucky ones that get this job every year). Don't forget the SAL raffle for $5 a chance to win a FL-8, 2 man fish trap, or 8" lazer ice auger. You must at least by 1 contest ticket to fish the tourney. However the more tickets you buy the more chances you get on the door prizes as well that are given away every 30 seconds. See you there.

Do you need to be present to win on the raffle tickets and if not where can I buy a couple before the drawing I wanted to be there but family gathering came up last minute.

No you don't need to be present to win. You can get the tickets at any gas station or bait shop in Elysian, and I believe in Madison Lake, but I'm not sure. I got mine in Waseca at the bait shop there.

Most of the local business', bait shops, and gas stations in the Elysian and Waterville area have the contest tickets. The Elysian Legion Post is having a bullhead supper Sat. night and you are sure to get all the tickets a man can buy there. It starts around 5:00 until gone. You need not be present to win the larger prizes, but must be on the lake for the door prizes. I have tickets to sell but I don't know how to find you.

just to let you know we were at the tournament and had a good time did not catch a thing between me and the boy but it was still fun, did however score on one of the drawing and won a electric fillet knife, not bad for a 1$ entery fee. the winning fis was a 2#7oz pike caught by a young girl. in all if you missed it ohwell there is next year. thanks to those who put it on you did a excellent job.

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.
