49th Annual Chaska Fire Dept. Fishing Contest


Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone! Well, our fishing contest is going to be held this coming Sunday, February 12th 2:00-4:00 w/ Terri Trane from the "Morning Show". One catch, it's going to be at the fire station due to really thin ice on Fireman's pond in Chaska. We will still be giving away all our prizes for the "fisherman" category and the "need not be present" category along with a bunch of small door prizes. To win one of the 10 "fisherman" prizes you must be present for the raffle. Here they are: 1. Aqua-Vu SV Camera, 2. Vexilar FL18, 3. 8" StrikeMaster Lazer power auger, 4. Vexilar FL8, 5. Frabil Venture ice shelter, 6. Rapala cordless fille knife, 7. Ice fishing tackle pack, 8. Rod/Spinning reel combo, 9. Croxton pond bag w/2 rod/reel combos, 10. Rod/Spinning reel combo. Also, prizes given away for the "need not be present to win" are: 1. $500.00 cash, 2. $500 travel gift certificate, 3. 2-$50 gift certificates & $150 cash 4. $225 gift certificates 5. $200 shopping spree 6. $200 gift certificate

There will also be bucket raffles for a Queen size sleep number bed, a grill, a 27" T.V., and 8" Eskimo Auger.

We will also be selling refreshments, hamburgers, hot dogs, treats for the kids. To keep people busy during the raffle of door prizes, we will have our famous minnow races. It's been a blast the previous years we've had it indoors due to ice conditions. Bring the family out for a couple hours.

It is 285 Engler Boulevard. 2 Blocks west of 41 on top of the hill in Chaska. Parking will be at the Middle School west, which is on the N.E. corner of 41 and Engler. We will have buses running back and forth from the lot to the station. Or, it's just 2 1/2 block walk to the west.

It should be a great time again this year, even though it's at the fire station. We're trying to get some games set up for the kids to play and keep them busy while the raffles are going on. Even with this cold weather, there just isn't enough time to put the ice on the lake that we need. Just last week we had two open holes in the ice and only an average of 6 inches across the lake. With the number of holes and people usually at the contest, we have a 16 inch minimum just to be safe.

Was looking forward to taking the kids to their 1st ever chaska fireman fishing contest on the pond. But they will have fun at the fire hall.

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      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....
