Staying on a private island that has propane powered everything. We need to be able to charge trolling motors batteries and are looking for a place in I'Falls or Fort Frances to rent a portable generator. Any thoughts and or recommendations.

The island is in Canadian waters, but we are renting boats from Island View on the american side. The island is just north of the border across from Franzen island.

I purchased a off brand Generator from Northern Hydraulics. It was 1000Watt, 1200Max boost for $149 for the fishhouse. I bought the extended warranty (2yr) for $30 It has worked great. By the time you pay to rent one, you could own one.

Just a thought.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

      February 23rd, 2017:
         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
