I see the golden rainbow contest is gone and a new contest is going to be held by the VFW and is being called Fishapalooza. Does anyone know anything more about this new contest.
I always loved going to the contest. Never won anything(came close once), but always had fun. I was really bummed out to see it leave.

Does anyone else plan on going to this new contest?

Welcome to the forum, bassolicious.

The tournament is scheduled for February 16th, 2008 from 12:00pm to 3:00pm on Forest Lake (Lake one) near the downtown Forest Lake public access. This tournament will be a shotgun start. No access into the contest area prior to 9:00am on the day of the contest. Anyone pre-fishing within 24 hours before the contest must register with contest officials at the judge ’s tent.

There is a bunch more information located here...

Hopefully mother nature will be kind to us this winter and reward us with early ice and lots of it.
Just added a couple more sponsors to our list. Arctic Armor and the Whiskey Shack.
The addition of these sponsors have now pushed our prize payout to $140,000. That's not all of them though. We will be updating the prize list on a weekly basis with the latest sponsors and payout total. Check out http://www.icefishingforestlake.com for the latest updates.

Stop on by once in a while and give us an update. I didn't realize the prize payout was a moving target!

Welcome to the forum, Fishapalooza! I take it you have something to do with the contest? It's nice to get "first hand info." You never know what these crazy fishermen will come up with. Hope to hear more from you!

What kind of fish usually wins these things? I have never been an ice fisher but I am going to start because I caught the bug last winter. I live next to forest lake so I will be fishing at this contest, but I am wondering what kind of fish usually win these things? It's only 3 hours and their are a ton of prizes. I would think a little luck could go a long way. I don't even have a vexilar!?!? I'll have to get somekind of knock off. Or maybe just not buy books for my next quarter of school.

Thanks,
Logan

Usually northerns will take the top places. The way we have the prize list structured, with big prizes all throughout the list, even a small perch or sunny could end up winning a 16 foot Ice Castle fish house or an Arctic Cat ATV. grin smiley

I look forward to seeing you there
