There are some public areas just north of becker. that is about a 1/2 hour from St. Cloud State. I am not sure what it is called, though. Sherburne wildlife refuge is north of becker/big lake as well, however I am not sure on what permits etc. you need for hunting there. Can anyone help him out?????

I agree that the area around Rice are the best. There is one directly on the Mississippi, I can't remember the name. That looked very promising.

St. Cloud has an open deer season with a permit. Go to city hall and they can inform you a little more.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
