Does anyone know anything about any Ice fishing contests coming up this weekend? I thought I heard of one on Jefferson or German this sunday? I know the beaver one comes up on sunday also, but would like to try a different one.

Thanks

Any contests in the Faribault/Mankato area coming up the weekend of February 18-19? I'm going to be in the area, and fishing for prizes makes things more fun.

I do remember at the Franics contest they said somethhing about Silver Lake being on the 19th. I'm not 100% on this though, but I believe they said Silver.

I was also thinking about Beaver Lake too, but I have never had any luck on that lake, even when there is no noise on the ice. I'm looking for lakes I haven't been on this year yet. Jefferson is looking pretty good, I've been skunked the last 3 outings this week. I just can't seem to get them to bite, can see them down there, just aren't hungry I guess.

I'm going to out to clear lake in the morning and then I'm going to flip a coin to see what lake I've never been on jefferson

fished Jefferson once last summer, didn't get anything of any size that day though. I don't know yet what one I'll go to. Depends on whether or not my dad or brother is coming up for one of them. Has anyone been getting any walleyes on clear lake this year? My brother got one bout a month ago and that was the only one we've gotten out of there. Last outing we had there, got one 3lb northern and a mess of crappies and sunnies. nothing spectacular though.

I talked to a friend of mine and they caught some small walleyes last weekend but nothing to great I'm going out to clear to help my uncles find the fish so that he can put his house out we are going to try the shallow waters I think

Haven't been out on clear for about a week or so, but the last time we were out, 10 to 15 feet seemed to be the magic depth for us. Good luck tomorrow, supposed to be a windy one. I may be out on Clear Friday afterwork around 1:30 or so. That seems to be the only lake I can seem to catch decent fish on.

I was thinking bout going out Sat. afternoon somewhere. I've been lake hopping all week. Was out on Steele yesterday with the old man. Be careful out there with the new snow. my cleats got clogged up w/ the snow and I learned how to fly for a second. I went up and came back down on my back, cracked my head pretty good on the ice and messed my neck up. Was back out there tonight and had lots of lookers but no takers. I plan on goin out Friday after work since it is my short day, and maybe later on Sat. afternoon when I get back in the area...if you're lookin for a fishing partner let me know I'm usually good to go.

I see. I've been making some lists of lakes I want to check out this year yet. I may run to one of them Sat. or may try Horseshoe again, but that may be a bust.

I wish I had that kind of job, I'd be out every day too. I'm working out the details of Saturday...

Yeah, I stepped out of work at 3 yesterday and couldn't believe the change from when I arrived at work. Have you tried St. Olaf or anything around Elysian? Have you heard anything on Francis on the west end?

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @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?
