Chaska Firemens Ice Fishing Contest

Recommended Posts

HossFisher

Just wondering if anybody's heading out down there tomorrow for the contest. Normally draws quite a crowd for such a dinky lake. Should be interesting to see what people pull out of there this year! In the Chaska Herald i saw that someone pulled a 22lb northern out of there during non contest fishing time, I'll be down there, good luck if ya go down!

I'm not going to go because of work, but I'm sure there will be a crowd. You can thank Bob Stadem for those big fish (god rest his soul). If any of you knew Bob you know what I mean. wink.gif

With thousands of lines in the water the 1st place prize goes to a 1lb bass. crazy.gif most of the top 10 fish were sunfish

I don't think my .068lb gill placed. I caught about 20 gills that were all carbon copies of each other. I did loose a crappie I'm guessing to be about 8" right at the top of the whole. I couldn't grab it in time before it took off. I think it would have placed somewhere in the top 50 for sure. That was probably my biggest fish in the 26 years I've been there smirk.gif

I weighed in one fish, but it didnt make the top 50, they said it was close though. I had the same problem probably caught 40 sunfish. My friend did have his flag go up, felt the fish, but missed it on the hookset. We would have definetly won the tourney, he had a big sucker on and we brought it up and it was ripped in half, just dangling there! That crappie would have been in the top 5 i'm guessing

First fish was a 1.254 lb bass weighed in at 3:49. (11 min. to go in the tourney, 2nd .944 bass, 3rd .6 lb Crappie, 4th .56 lb Crappie, 5th .538 bass ..... 49th .096 crappie, 50th .096 Sunfish. Any ties went to the fish weighed in first.

Thanks to all that showed up and put up with the wind and cold. You made it a great day for the fire department and we all appreciate your support year to year. Hope to see all of you again next year!

Hats off to the Chaska Fireman another great fishing contest. This was my first year fishing it. All the others years I have Help the Hopkins Jaycees with their contest being a Chaska Jaycee and was unable to be at the Firemans.

My Daughter first time out ice fishing and we caught a bunch of little sunfish and with 1/2 hour to go she pulled up a .222 crappie when she weighted it it was 9th place after the contest we got bumped to 10th which wasnt bad she walked away with a fl8se Genz Pack.

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
