What's biting on Owasso, White Bear, or Bald Eagle? White Bear and Owasso have been slow but I haven't hit Bald Eagle yet. Is Bald Eagle driveable with a 1/2 ton truck?

WB is a tough lake to fish it is very clear

I found crappies in 28 feet of water. I had tried all over between 8 feet and 22 feet prior to that and had nothing until I went way deeper. We ended up with a bunch of crappies and one walleye. Nothing big but it was certainly entertaining.

Had been having less than great luck on WB, so went to Bald Eagle this morning. Tried one likely (but out of way) spot and didn't mark a fish. Tried another near our fav summer spot, and no walleyes, but bro-in law saw a couple pike swim by on camera, and we were deeper and caught a mess of small sunnies and a couple crappies, in about 20 FOW. Nothing special. Plenty of ice for driving.

And plenty of trash out there. Holy cow, makes me embarassed to be an ice fisherman... I know it most likely isn't the folks who visit here, but I wish they would pick up after theirselves. We picked up a bunch of beer and Dew bottles on way in.

      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.
