Hey Jon, thanks for the advice the other day on when to make a trip up there. Unfortuanatly we wont be able to make it up there this year, but want to make it a trip for next year. We want to rent a house from the Minnow Station, do you have any idea as to how soon a person should get their reservation in? I know from previous posts you said they fill up fast. Would like to make it up the last week in Jan. or first week in Feb. cool.gif Looking forward to it already, maybe get a chance to meet you in person shocked.gif

I'll chime in for jonny......if you are planning on renting from them anytime this ice season you need to call and make a reservation, now. They fill up fast for a reason.

Those reservations aren't taken until next year. They take reservations only for the year of.

I believe Alex1's question is: At what time next year (for winter 08-09) will they start taking reservations? He already knows that you cant make those reservations now and he knows that this year is filling up fast. Its a good question and I'm looking forward to the response. Is mid summer too early or do you have to wait until fall. Since they are already booked this winter for weekends until March, I assume they started taking reservations some time ago for this winter (07-08).

They generally start taking reservations for the next ice season around October 1st.

I emailed Kelly and John early this fall and they said they dont usually take reservations until Oct. 1st. So, right before Oct. 1st I emailed kelly and he set us up for Dec 26-29. I cant flippin wait! I must read through the site about 10 times a day. This year I plan on C & R a 20 lb gator.

Jon's in the middle of moving so he'll be unhooked from the net for a few days.

We start taking reservations Oct 1 for that winter. We used to start earlier in the year but jobs change, divorice's happen, fights happen, death happen's until about 1/2 of the people would change their reservations before freezeup. It seems that everyone is a little more set in Oct.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
