Thanks for the news, looking forward to the drive!
Question regarding the flier. It reads, "no teams except father and son". Can you clarify that?
Also, there is a fee this year? Is this just for Father Son combo's or everyone who steps foot on the lake?lol

Thanks and really looking forward to my first
nice laker through the ice!

Bash is the last weekend in January on Burntside Lake near Ely.

There is no fee for the "bash." For the Ice Leaders lake event, there is a $10 advance fee with $15 the day of the event. The Ice Leaders competition is a Saturday-only event, while the bash will run Saturday and Sunday for those willing and eager to spend two days on one of Minnesota's most easily accessible laker lakes (divers have documented lakers over 25 lbs in B-side. Last year's biggest ice laker was 17 lbs, caught off Blueberry Island.) In four trips to B-side last year, I had three limits and one day with two fish (this year's new inland limits are down to two fish per person.)

In other words, anyone who wants to can come out on the ice and have a Burntside Bash great time free of charge. There'll be the headquarters tent and grills, so bring your own fluids and food. Those who want to compete for trophies and be in the running for drawn prizes (prizes to be announced soon, I hope) pay the entry fee.

We're hoping to set it up so folks who have fished lakers before can unofficially partner with laker rookies and give them some spots/tips. But that's still in the works. grin.gif

If you trust us a little bit, you'll see that Chunky in particular (who bore almost the whole expense of last year's inaugural bash on his shoulders) and S.T. and I can put on wingding of a deal.

    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
