Isn’t the parking kind of funny at this lake? I went there once but it seemed like a lot of no parking signs

Fished the Derby on Saturday and did okay but I'm having a problem locating a beaver dam tip up which I think I left on the ice. Small reward for the return of my tip up which was a natural wood with red flag with reflector on it. The tip up did have my name and phone number on the end of it.

Hi Guys,  LVVA Derby was great as usaul.  Ryan and those guys are awesome people and do a wonderful job at what they do.  I always feel good coming home after supporting a great cause like that.  The Chili Cookoff was great, we bought so many raffle tickets I think I put an entire book in to win that Genz pack but no dice LOL.  Saturday morning around 4:15 I was packing up my van at the Lake Zurich Holiday Inn getting ready to head out when I realized our guest of honor Staff Sargent Freddie Ruiz was staying in my hotel and waiting for his ride.  If I knew he was there the night before I would have offered to drive him to the derby.  I did get a selfie with him before we left.  It was all in all a great time great and great day.  This year as I mentioned in a previous post I brought my wife with who turned out to be my good luck charm. I took first place in Bluegill with a monster 9.5 inch pumkin seed and can now enjoy a really nice Jiffy Pro 4 stroke propane auger.  Retiring my old gas leaking strikemaster chipper..  I was so stoked with the hog I pulled up and being that this is a catch and release derby after the judge measured her up I put her right back down the hole without taking a quick pic!!  so still swimming.  Not only did I get my wife on a nice hole where she pulled out 4 gills within 10 minutes "First time ice fishing"  she also started to out perch me a little bit in some deeper water LOL.  So she has fun and now thinking about bringing her out to WOW too,watch out guys I was only 3/4inches away from taking first in perch and bluegill at this one..
