I made my own last year, bought the 1/4" polycarbonate from a glass shop in the area, made a cardboard template and figured the angle of bend I needed then took all that to a metal shop that had a "break" to bend it. its bent Cold. (a "tinners" break will not be heavy enough to bend it)

I then bought some rubber from the local surplus store and some alluminum pop rivits and a couple feet of 3/4" x 1/8" aluminum for backer for the rubber. even made the cutout for the trolling motor, they look good and work great. all for about $75-80 and a couple hrs time.

I made my own also from polycarbonate(lexan) sheet. I used 2" hand clamps so I could put them on mutiple boats. Great when we rent a boat in Canada and portage in. Just bring em along and stay dry. I used a heat gun to bend mine. Polycarb bends at about 270 degrees F. Mcmaster-Carr has cut pieces 12 x 24 for $17. DO NOT USE ACRYLIC SHEET!!! It can break easily.

Whitecap splashguards at www.whitecapmfg.com cost would be $70.00 for one side. Link to the website is also under the mille lacs forum.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
