Most of the hail in the BSL area was golfball size although there were some baseball sized chunks.

My boss's plane took 25,000$ in damage.

I'm thinking there could be trees down with the big winds we had as well.

I'd be calling your locals up here to check in on your property.

I heard that Bridge Rd got hit pretty bad. Looks like a warzone w/ trees down, roofs damaged. Any skylights are likely toast.

I'm down on Flowage and it (supposedly) never got any bigger than pea-sized down by us. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though (we need a new roof!). Checking it this weekend

my girlfriends parents have a cabin on big sandy and they got baseball sized hail that completely shattered their lawn furniture, but no broken windows thankfully!

Thanks for the additional info boys! Think all that ice will cool down the bite?? wink.gif

Did it knock the Buffalo Chips out of the rice???

Have they started harvesting???

Well BBG I hope it works out for you.

I was worrying about my old roof for about 8 years, hoping it would hold until a hail storm would hit...all it did was go all around me! Most of my friends got theirs replaced 100%. frown.gif

I finally had to shell out the dough, but it was well worth it. smile.gif

Only now I worry every time a storm is coming within twenty miles!!! grin.gif

      I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore.

      I would also suggest small sucker, I also had good luck with just a crappie minnow on the hook. Depends on the lake really.

      White jig heads with a white tube, if that's not working use a buzz bomb with a sucker head or tail on the treble

      Ok, That's a good update.  I didn't realize all the fish died and I'll probably try and change the lake.  Thanks guys!
