Off shore brand is hard to beat and the spring flag is a must as well. Church tackle however, has some boards that are nice as well. I actually picked up two of both brands just for different applications. The Church tackle brand has a nice quick release in the rear and also an easy weight change for precision trolling. I know that the taddle flag is available for this brand as well.

Good luck and happy trolling!!

We'll be out there but aren't in the tourney.

Thanks for the info. Anyone ever use the minis by Church? I heard they can be the ticket in certain applications.

The Mini Boards work nice for calm waters, slow speeds and small cranks. If you don't have any boards, I'd buy the big ones before the mini boards.

I have 4 Offshore boards, if I get 2 more it will be a toss-up between Church and Offshore. They're both good but I think Offshore are better, expecially for your first set or two of boards.

      I just checked the cedar Island Access there was about two-and-a-half to three inches of ice

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
