fishing contests


Recommended Posts

Does any one here know where there might be a published list of ice fishing contests for this winter? I'm looking for ones in the metro and south of the metro areas.

I'd also like to know who sponsors the events, costs, and if there are kids prizes.

Maybe this should be an ongoing forum. A thread could be created for each contest - with the first post being the location, time, sponsors, prizes, tickets and other information regarding the contest. This could be posted as soon as the date was set. Any additional information, postponement or cancelation could be posted.

Those that frequent the contest could post and those planning on attending could make it known. Fishing contests could be turned into FishingMN get togethers. We could have our own FishingMN contest on the side.

Afterwards the results and turnout information could be posted. Just a thought - one place to get all your contest information.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

Contest would get more exposure, better turn out, etc...

I posted a similar thread asking about contests in the metro area lakes section.

Right away I got 3 responses about contests I would have no idea are going on.

There is a contest on Howard Lake (13 miles west of Delano) this Saturday. I'm not sure of any info on it, I tried to pull some up through the internet but couldn't find anything. I guess anyone interested would have to call Joes Sport Shop in Howard Lake to find out entry fees, prizes, etc...

Both of our DNR's (WI and MN) have great web sites. Since those running contests must have a DNR permit, it sure would be nice if they, (DNR) could post them all, all year round. I think that I will send them an e-mail requesting this.

    • yea that place is awesome!!!   been years since I was there...  maybe a road trip and stop at Bongards too!!!  
    • We actually hardly buy any of the candy, but they have so much other good stuff like the Pies, apple bread, canned and jar pickled stuff, hot sauces etc. 😋
    • I drive by that candy barn all the time its crazy how busy it always is. Ive lived not 5 miles from it for 49 years. Been there once.
    • I'm game to try anything but yeah, I'm not into a lot of fruit or sweety meats.  Plus we made our one trip a year down to the Big yellow candy store already this year. 😋
    • 🙄yea you lost me when you mentioned honey!!!!!! and honestly i'm not a fan of all those "extra"ingredients in my meats.....especially that high temp cheese......yucky!!!!   plantenbergs has all kinds of that type of stuff.......i pass, only get plain sausage and brats.   iffin i was still on the union payroll i would take ya up on that as i travelled through belle plaine on my way back from siouxfalls now and then!!!!! now that i'm on a srick budget......thats a long way to go fer a weinie!!!!!🤣
    • Take a trip down to Belle Plaine. I'll show you some good hot dogs.   Just made Minnesota style summer sausage (blueberries wild rice and honey) for thew first time today.     
    • i've lived in Richmond and now cold spring all my life. my brother ordered a half of beef from this place called Homegrown meats , had never heard of it. know why now, when i picked it up it was established in 2020.  its just south of browns lake at the intersection of 22 and cty rd 43.  nice little place.   he called both Plantenbergs and breagelmans in Richmond........they are 6 months out. Breagelmans actually referred my brother to this place.  he said it was cheaper also!!!!!   i'll be taking some venny trimmings to Mcdonalds in 2 weeks for summer sausage and sticks!!!!!   plantenbergs will get the rest for bologna and hot dogs!!!!! you cant eat other bologna or weiners once you've had theirs!  mcdonalds SS and sticks are also topof the line as far as i'm concerned!
    • Which one?  I've been trying them all around the cloud.  Just had Elk burgers from McDonald's Clear lake last week and Bison tonight.  
    • Burgers from a new butcher shop.👍 good flavor 
    • The big pogo stick front shocks took a little getting used too.
