Anyone know where in Minnesota that stocks marine carpet that I can just go buy without having to order it. I am assuming some place has it in stock, just dont know where. Thanks in advance

Fleet farm sells carpet? I never knew that or would of even thought that. Is there any difference from marine carpet to indoor/outdoor carpet?

Cabelas website shows various choices and grades of it. Was looking for the kid who wants to carpet a 8 X 16 he acquired.

Looked like about $150 for that size & quality he needs.

** any of the house mfgr's will have it as well**

I told my son to measure out the cuts he needs and approach one of them to cut it out for him. Buy the adhesive to secure it and just roll out the pre-cut carpet !!

Menards carries the base grade indoor/outdoor stuff as well but its not the grade of marine or the texture.

Marine carpet comes in variable piles and grades just like normal carpet. Obviously the lower per ln ft cost the cheaper the look and quality.

I'm sure Cabelas or anywhere has a onsite sample of everything they stock or can order.

Fish house manufactures pretty much use on of two or three grades but I doubt they carry or stock numerous variety other then samples.

So unless you are looking for some "high dollar" stuff you will see what you mainly see in most manufactured fish houses & boats. I had a low cut tight weave with padding in a house and it was great stuff. Ceiling fan kept it dry @ all times if it got soaked some how. But I know this was not your average middle of the road application either for marine carpet.

Not sure if you have a Gander Mountain out your way or not they have it stock......you should seriously consider vinyl or brush on flooring....

My boat has marine vinyl on the floor and it still looks great after 10 yrs. of a lot of use. Does,nt retain any water, just runs right off. Also cleans up nicely!

Hallberg marine carried carpet a year ago. I have not needed carpet again, but, I would bet that they have your color, unless it is not a popular color you are trying to get.

      It's Thursday, March 23rd, and we're still running four wheelers on many of the lakes north of Brainerd. The panfish action was hot last weekend, especially up in the shallow spikes close to deep water. The small cold-snap that hit early in the week seemed to slow the bite and push some fish out on the breaks that lead to shallow spikes. It's a special time of year. I watched my brother release multiple slabs over 14", multiple walleyes over 20", and some nice bass, all while fishing in 5 ft of water. It doesn't happen to us often, but it last weekend it was hard to find the eater-size crappies. Almost every fish was over 13". Good times.    How's everyone else doing out there?  Any new suggestions on panfish presentations, jigs, plastics..etc?   Good luck to all that get out on the last ice, and be safe!

      Welcome to Minnesota. I moved to the metro from way up north about 20 years ago so faced some of the same questions. Once I scouted a bunch of local WMA's I found several that didn't get much bow hunting pressure. Most days you're by yourself. But you have to be prepared for the unexpected. Once I was in a tree stand near some water. Right after sunrise I heard some shooting and shouting and a minute later a nice looking black lab ran past my stand with a mallard in his mouth! I didn't even know they were sitting in a blind down the shore from me. All in all I have had pretty good luck at finding places to hunt especially if you can go during the week.

      Following the pattern observed in neighboring states, white-nose syndrome, a disease that can be fatal to hibernating bats, has now been confirmed in six Minnesota counties, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  The disease has recently been confirmed in Becker, Dakota, Fillmore, Goodhue and Washington counties. Minnesota’s first confirmed case of WNS was in St. Louis County last March. The disease is named for the white fungal growth observed on infected bats. It is not known to pose a threat to humans, pets, livestock or other wildlife. The recent DNR bat surveys have recorded declines in the annual bat count ranging from 31 to 73 percent in locations where WNS has been confirmed. The 73 percent decrease was observed at Soudan Underground Mine in St. Louis County, where the disease was first confirmed in Minnesota a year ago. DNR biologists think the sharp decline there may reflect how long the disease has been present. With WNS confirmed in Fillmore County in southeastern Minnesota, the count at Brightsdale Tunnel was down 39 percent from last year, and the count at Bat River Cave decreased 31 percent. “While some locations are still testing negative, the results of recent surveys lead us to conclude that WNS is likely to be present anywhere bats hibernate in Minnesota,” said Ed Quinn, DNR natural resource program supervisor. “Four of Minnesota’s bat species hibernate, and four species migrate. WNS will have a substantial effect on Minnesota’s hibernating bat population. Neighboring states have reported declines of 70 to 95 percent in specific locations, as we recorded this year at Soudan Mine.” Although the disease is transmitted primarily from bat to bat, people can inadvertently carry fungal spores to other caves on clothing and caving gear. For several years, public tours of Soudan Underground Mine and Mystery Cave have begun with a brief lesson on how to prevent the spread of WNS. Both before and after tours, visitors are required to walk across special mats designed to remove spores from footwear, and they are advised not to wear the same clothing, footwear or gear when visiting other caves or mines where bats may be present. Multiple washings in a standard washing machine will not provide sufficient decontamination. Tours will continue at Soudan Underground Mine and Mystery Cave, where the DNR will continue to follow recommended national decontamination protocols to prevent human transport of fungal spores. The DNR urges owners of private caves to learn about WNS and take similar visitor precautions as outlined in the protocols. The DNR is working with federal and state officials to consider a variety of treatment trials, to test new fungicides that may kill WNS spores. Treatments are unlikely to eradicate WNS, but could slow the spread and reduce the number of bat deaths. DNR biologists conduct winter bat counts in several Minnesota hibernacula each year. “We use these counts to compare the number of bats in a site from year to year. Although we count all of the bats that we see, more are likely in areas we can’t reach,” said DNR mammalogist Gerda Nordquist. WNS was first documented in North America in 2007 in eastern New York and has since spread to 30 states and five Canadian provinces, killing more than 5.7 million bats. Nordquist encourages anyone who sees a sick or dead bat to submit a Bat Observation Report. DNR staff reviews these reports and additional follow-up or testing is conducted as needed.

            Can't fix stupid! That crack, now forming a pressure ridge, about mid-lake, is plenty reason not to drive even a car out there. Won't take much to break that lake apart soon the way it was chuckin ice, especially rain. Some areas had 12". Hopefully the heavy rain stays away.
