I am planning on going tomorrow afternoon for a little bit, I have been to it once before, it is fun to look and dream! Some good booths for resorts as well.

Definately worth going if you are window shopping, dreaming or need a place to chase the winter blues away from your kids.

The seminars they have are nice and informational, especially the dog training one with Jason Dommeyer, but they seem to have a lot more seminars a few years ago as compared to now.

Admission is about $6, 12 and under-free, I believe. I bit pricey in my book considering what they got/offer. But my kid love to go and check out all the boats and campers and then tries to help me persuade his mother that we need it when we get home... :-)

Hey all,

Had to go out the Sport and Vacation Show this afternoon and shoot video of it for future commercial/promotion use. Got a chance to look around a bit between camera setups.

Looks to be a good show, IMO

In fact KTTC did a live shot for their 6 pm news there tonight. Randy B was talking to the guy who is pitching the new small lightweight airplanes that you can buy for 100k and do't need an aviation license to fly it. I also saw there a motorized snowboard that looked kinda fun to tool around in and a few other booths I wouldn't mind looking into further.

Still would like to see more on the seminar list but the managing whitetails on small acres looked very interesting!

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
