I cannot tell you how thick the ice is but it looked really good over there. I stopped by there last weekend and I couldn't see any breakers to speak of. I will be up there this coming weekend and I will give you an update when I return.

Hey boar, Its time to take Emil and head out. We were at Long Point today we had to move around some to find fish and the ice was about 13" where we cut. we found fish in 24-25 fow. No trucks out yet just very light vehicles, ATV's & snowmobiles, we crossed some "live small cracks" nothing big or heaves, there are rough spots out there, but its about average.

boar we went east so couldn't see that far, however a lot of the resort houses are going out that way, but not very far west yet.

Hey Kingfisher. grin.gif Figured you would post some thing. How was the fishing tho? Who went with you? Been busy here being this is my crunch time. About out of long Icesaws and Stenberg’s had puter problems and now they can’t get the material for the blades. Mark said Monday but he said that over a week ago. Over 3 weeks and still waiting on blades. confused.gif

Go fishing a couple of extra times for me and catch a wall hanger wink.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.
