Opportunities abound. Get yourself a Minnesota Gazetter and you can find all the WMA and WPA's on the map in the tan color. Do some scouting the day before and shoot em dead.

Within an hour there are a lot of places to shoot. Later in the year scouting is the key. Don't follow the crowds either. Some of my best days come on smaller potholes later in the year. Don't be afraid to ask the farmers either if you see potholes in the fields that are still open. Most farmers are a lot more willing to let you hunt after their crops are out.

Another resource to try is the MWA public hunting land map. I think I picked on up at Wal Mart. Or the DNR's recreation compass works fairly well.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
