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, in the carpet area. I think it's marine, indoor/outdoor for sure.

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.

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.
