Try Ollie's Resort up by the Libby Dam.

There's a place across from the Pier 65 that might have 1 too,sorry I forget the name.

Call the Pier & see if they know the name of the place.

Wayne Floe has the Floetilla,he might do something for you.

Call the Pier as he owns it.

Ole's quit renting pontoon's about 6 year's ago.........they don't sell bait, or rent boats any more.

I believe the place mentioned on 65 is Swanee's Surplus. Also, I think the Floetilla has gone rental out of the Pier. Might try Big Sandy Sports also, I'm a little confused on what they've got going now, but might be worth a shot.

Thanks for the info guys. Sounds like we are going to rent from "THe Lodge". I wish we could use the FLoetilla but we asked wayne a few years ago and he said he can't rent it out because of insurance reasons. Understandable I guess. Maybe he has since changed his mind.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
