Per Kendal Patrie of the DNR our "Oxygen levels are looking great on both of the lakes." They will be back on March 5th to check them again. Stay tuned for updates on the Ice Jamboree from Saturday.
On Saturday, February 10, 2018 will be the Spirit Lakes Improvement Associations (SLIA) annual ice fishing jamboree. It will run from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM. All fish must be registered by 3:00 PM. We will award for 1st and 2nd place in all fish categories.
We will serve food and drinks at the shelter again. We will serve chili and chicken dumpling soup, along with burgers and brats. We will have coffee, hot chocolate, pop, juice, water and beer to drink.
Our large raffles this year will be our board raffles. As explained in the past, we cannot advertise what these are on the internet per Wisconsin gaming. We have three boards at this time; one from fall and two for the contest. Once they are full we will draw a name. If you would like to see or purchase a square, they are all at Lil J & D’s across from the boat landing on Spirit Lake. They will all be at the shelter on the day of the fishing contest.
We will have a 50/50 raffle. Tickets will be sold the day of the contest for $1 each or 6 for $5. There will be one winner who will win half the money. The drawing will be held approximately at 3:30 PM at the boat landing shelter after the all the fish prizes have been awarded. If you aren’t going to be present we ask you to write your name and phone number on the tickets.
We will also have some small raffles. These tickets will also be sold the day of the contest also. They will also be $1 each or 6 for $5. You need to be present to win these prizes. If you aren’t present, please write your name and phone number on the ticket.
We are looking to update our clothing. So, all of our existing T-shirts and sweatshirts will be discounted. They will be out the day of the contest.
Please come out and support our great event. We are always looking for new members. It’s only $30 per year. Our year goes from May 1st to April 30th. Please note, you do NOT have to live on the lake to belong to SLIA. We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday…
