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 have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
