I had hopes of pulling this off myself, but it ain't gonna happen...no access to the transom (on the inside) and I don't want to muck it up. Any suggestions on a good marine place/guy to do this sort of thing? I guess I could go go to RJ's, but they probably couldn't get at it for a while anyway, and I need it this week. Thanks!

He is a local Duluth Guy so try the phone book. West Duluth. I think the west 47th ave area? He used to have a website but I see thats down now. He rigged my boat along with many of the local league and tourney guys. Knows his stuff and a good price.

Hey, I appreciate the effort Steve. I spoke to the manager at GM today and he knew Kenney too, and also thought he was "between" garages. He did give me another guy who may be able to do it, waiting on a return call from him. I trailered the boat down to RJ today after speaking to them on the phone; they wanted to see the boat to see if they could do the job. The guy who looked at it was knowledgeable and helpful, but they want me to contact the boat manufacturer to see if the boat will handle it. That I don't understand at all. I really didn't think this would be such a problem, go figure.

      I heard that it was still open 10-14 days ago but with this cold it should be making ice quickly.  I was on a bigger lake Saturday and we had 7-8" on a lake that reopened last week when it warmed up.  I'd be very nervous about going across the lake especially crossing any deep water holes.  The next 7 days should be making very good ice though if weather holds true.

      Good share. I'm really itching to get out on some of those local lakes. I was thinking of trying today but I'm going to hold off now.

      Thanks again, Don. Really do appreciate the updates!
    • Bass Thumb
      That's what happened to mine too.

      Went out this morning to check the ice on both sides of my peninsula.    Found ice anywhere from 1-4".   The area  found 1" i did not expect it.   There are also small ice heave air pockets with only 1 or 2" of ice on them and open water underneath.   Now with the fresh snow is is very hard to distinguish these little heaves or thin ice.   I am going to wait a few more days here yet and I know the ice here well.   I heard a report of a 4 wheeler on shoe, this is more than stupid.   No fish is worth your life.  Be safe   Don

      Can't get on the lakes yet, but there are still fish in the river.

      You'd get a good laugh at what the consistent check cashers on the ice fishing circuits, have been have been using for years. $4.99

      I am always looking for better ice rods but I hate paying more than 50 bucks

      You could start by calling some resorts.  I've found that sometimes they have some for sale or other people have them for sale at the resort.

      north metro lake had consistent 2-2.5" yesterday around noon. Headed back tonight to check a couple  more lakes.  It would be nice to hit 4-5" before warm weather sets in  later this week
