I hope its the one north of big lake. I know the contest is from 12:00 - 3:00. There is an add in the local paper about it, but it doesn't say much about it. I am going to go buy tickets tonight for it and hopefully I can get more info. Ill post what I find out tomorrow.

As for the contest rules, I can't help you guys out. A friend lives on the lake & is getting me my tickets. Here is a clip from the local paper.

Help the environment by fishing. Participate in the Big Eagle Lake Improvement Association's ice fishing contest Sat. Jan. 27 from noon to 3 pm. and get a chance to win big prizes.

"All proceeds will be used to improve water quality and habitat on the lake," says Big Eagle Lake Improvement Association's Elaine Berg-quist.

Tickets can be purchased for $5 in advance at Coborn's, KleinBank, Big Lake Hardware Hank and Rental, Brock Tatge Farmer's Insurance Agency and Connections, Etc. On the day of the contest, they will be $10.

A free raffle ticket will be issued with each entry ticket. Extra raffle tickets will be given for every non-perishable food item brought for the Big Lake Food Shelf.

Raffle prizes include a $500 savings bond, two Minnesota Wild tickets, $100 Better Homes and Gardens gift certificate and a wildlife print donated by local artist Leonard Fellman. Raffle ticket holders need not be present to win.

Fishing contest prizes are similar and also include a $500 savings bond, Wild tickets and wildlife print, with hourly winners for the largest fish.

A special raffle will be held for a Strikemaster four-stroke power auger. Tickets for this raffle cost $10 each, but only 150 tickets will be sold.

"We will have extra drawings all afternoon," says Bergquist. "Cabela's donated lots of prizes. We have sonar fish finders, Cabela's sleeping bags, fishing poles, gift certificates and all kinds of other prizes."

Fishermen will be able to purchase hot chocolate and coffee, barbeque and chili.

"We had 14 inches of ice out there as of Sunday," Bergquist said.

I didn't catch his name, but the winner iced a 2 lb 13 oz walleye! Nice Fish! 2nd was a 1 lb 5 oz(?) pike.

If it weren't for the wind, it would have been a wonderful day - it wasn't bad if you faced ESE.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
