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.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
