How old are the kids? Maybe we can give you some advice on how to keep them entertained if the fish are not cooperating. Heck, my kids would get bored even if the fish WERE cooperating.

I am pretty sure Sportsmans on the south end has a pool. Probably a pretty good place to take a family.

Good Luck

Sportsmans Does have a pool, but you don't have to stay there to use it. Just pay a few bucks at the desk and they let you swim there too. we've did it quite a few times. Beats hearing the kids get bored.

      I just checked the cedar Island Access there was about two-and-a-half to three inches of ice

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Yeah I thought if that. Just looking for other opinions.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
