My little guy is 4 1/2 months old and it's been great! There will be times that won't be the most fun but they are FAR out weighed by the rest of the time. Sleep is over rated btw. My advice is to enjoy every second you can. It's true that they grow up fast. Even in 4 months my boy has changed a lot.

Congratulations!

I remember that getting to go fishing for a few hours was like a distant memory and I wondered if I still remember how to cast...wait it still is...baby is only 7 months...just last nite holding the kid and gave the kid a rod and reel to humor myself...

Get some sleep whenever you can... grin.gif

My little boy is 15 months old and his favorite toy to carry around the house is a 'glass ice noodle with a small spinning reel on it. He brought it to the portable mod get together and hasn't stopped playing with it. He has figured out how to reel the line up already, now I can't wait till he has a fish on the end of the line.

Enjoy all the moments, even the bad ones cause they make memories for a lifetime.

Yeah that would be scary. My first big fish was a carp caught on a piece of corn in the Des Moines river. Now look at my screen name. I might take her out in a couple of years for some spring crappies...

Congrats man! My girls are 5 & 6, & some of my favorite pictures already are of them proudly holding up a crappie or bluegill for the camera. And to watch my five-year old hold out her arms to describe the bass she caught, it must have been a state record... grin.gif

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
