I brought my portable and auger last time and did not need it. I would bring a fry pan and stuff to cook fish and a book. The resorts will keep the holes open for you so unless you are portable you wont need a lot of things. I did not have a lake map so mvoing on my own would have been a [PoorWordUsage] shoot. This time to save money on gas I am taking a ford focus instead of the Explorer and let the resort drive me on and off the lake.

Years ago I used to drive a Scout 2 and it got around on the ice quite good. If you have good tires on that thing you should be good to go....Bring a shovel though just incase!!

I guess I would'nt bother with the camera up here this time of year. I reckon if the bite is dead it'd be something to fiddle around with though!

If you think you could possibly fish outdoors, It is a good thing to bring suntan lotion. something about the suns intensity and the glare of the ice thats burns your face to a crisp.

Been burnt by the sun up there a couple times. Once it was 55 on the ice and sunny.

The other time it was late in the season and my dad, uncle and I drove the Excursion and atv out and it was too warm to sit in the portables. The temp reading in the X was 69 and it was sunny with no wind. I wore just a t-shirt but my dad and uncle went bare back. They built a snow man bare back and I snapped a few pics for the photo album. The fishing was good but not like early ice.
