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.

      pikeandchester, your kid is priceless!   You know that you wouldn't be going by your self much anymore-Right! 😅

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.

      thank you!   and thank you for the advice... i will try it out in my boat this week, and report back
