why dont you start out by giving some info instead of just asking for it? We are all looking for some help and are happy to give it as well, but there's a thing called the "free-rider problem". Just a suggestion.

good Lord Ziggy. This is a public forum for fellow fisherman to share information with each other. Give the guy a break! He may have not been able to get out yet, like me, and would like an ice report from someone who may have. It would be nice to have some info on local ice conditions to keep everyone safe out there.

Or at least stay out of the Minnesota forums.

glenn57, Four Seasons is on the Mississippi on the SW corner of the lake. I don't think they have fish houses on the lake. They just tore down the old cabins and put up really nice American Plan places. They have pictures on the website. I am pretty sure they rent these out in the winter for snowmobilers or ice fisherman. It is a very nice quiet resort out of the wind and very close to the good fishing on the south and western shores of the lake. A few of the cabins have a great view of the river with the lake in the background. I can't wait to get up there for some tremendous perch action!

      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

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
