    It was insane. Never experinced that before. Don't think I will be back. With all the reg fishing pressure, school events and tourneys, I am guessing the fish are well fed. I kept looking around last weekend at all the people and rigs and was trying to imagine all the lines hanging under the ice. I watched two different wrecks. One where the guy slid with his truck and comepletly ran over his own shelter and another where a lady slid into my buddy's parked truck with the tailgate down. Just not at all what I expected..

    It was insane. I wondered if there weren't any accidents. I did see at least two kids that wiped out on the slick ice and bashed their heads pretty good.

    Having said that, if its strictly for kids, there were tons of landlocks to keep my nine year old entertained. I suppose you always have the chance to catch a larger fish as long as your bait is in the water. I bet it's even slicker if there is any of this dusting of snow on top of that slick ice. Plan appropriately if you go.

    560 entrants made it.
    A handful of kids fell in the holes that they drilled to dump 500 fish into during the tournament....might try to eliminate that next year.
    $11k (roughly) raised for Make a wish foundation....pretty darn good I think!
    Next year make the concession stand mobile or cruise around at least, selling food and I think you'll raise more $.
    Lots of people using the islands as a restroom....add a couple port-a-johns to prevent this again.

    All in all, it was a success and my daughter had a good time. I believe they all got medals and a goodie bag for showing up.
    Good to see Cabelas there donating time and prizes too.
