first off, I didn't get around to calling this week.  ##$%#15 with the year end stuff and the markets going goofy, work got very busy. plus the winter storm this week kept me occupied. I will get to it next week 

I took inventory on fishing gear. we can each fish 2 rods. I have 4 rods/reels completely ready to go. I have an additional 3 walleye rods w/o reels.

do you guys have a couple reels we can use? I like smaller reels. shimano 1000 series type reels. if not, bigger reels will work to. for line, I like 6-8# mono. all you really need is approx. 100' of line. we will be fishing 20-35' of water. if you have ultra light reels that hold that much 6-8# line, they would work well. if you are buying line, I use P-LINE FLOUROCLEAR instead of 'ice line'. it works well

the other option is rattle wheels. he normally has a couple rattle wheels set up in the house and I have one I could bring. they work real well instead of a deadstick/bobber. the rattle 'rings' when you get a bite. they really shine when you take a nap --099-780

as for fishing gear, I have all the lures and hooks. you may want to bring a needlenose pliers/forceps for hook removal, head lamp, fish towel for wiping hands, clippers for line. just normal things you use boat fishing work well

any other questions come to mind? I've been doing this for a while, so i'm sure I take things for granted.

Yari - I have a reel or two I can bring along & thanks for the tips on the line choice, was wondering about that.  I think my main remaining questions would be around how much heavy clothes & food to plan on.

mad- we need to talk about food. I always like fresh fish a couple times. we can pan fry or if someone has a propane 'fry daddy' they could bring that. I normally don't run a strict meal schedule. if the fish are biting, you don't want to miss a run. plenty of snacking. we won't starve @--0--0105

as for warm cloths, we will be fishing inside. no real need for warm clothes except to relieve yourself. I normally just bring a down jacket and 2 pair of shoes/boots in case one pair gets wet from snow

HM- I forgot to mention. I don't drink java. by the time it tastes good to me, I might as well have a milkshake. my buddies normally do cowboy coffee or they really like the starbuck's instant @--0--0117

I have a buddy that fishes braid line. either he's a terrible fisherman or the fish don't like the braid. personally, I think they can see the line AND he's a bad fisherman --099-780 if you already have brais spooled, we can always tie on a mono leader

I'm not a coffee guy either.  Will down a Coke now & then but that's about my only source of caffeine these days.  Do you need us to bring any skillets or pots for cooking in?  Was thinking I could bring along a frozen batch of chili & thaw it out on the propane burner but chili for four old guys in close quarters may be disastrous - maybe potato soup instead! 
--099-780 
Frying up some fish sounds great to me.  Don't have a gas fry daddy - only a 2-burner LP coleman stove, so unless you think we need more stove space I will assume that stays home. Could also smoke a brisket, pork shoulder, and/or venison backstrap & bring that along.  As you said, I doubt we go hungry.  Will work to gain some points with the warden between now & then to see if she'll bake us something to take along, although that could be consumed before we get to Minnesota.

Swung by Gander Mountain this evening on my way home and looked for their ice fishing gear - they basically didn't have any.  I did grab a 300 yd spool of 6# P-Line but it's not the flouroclear (it's moss green) so I may need to do more looking.  Either way I'll use that line up somewhere.

mad- chili is always good. I wouldn't turn down anything smoked either. as for noxious gases that WILL occur, everyone should be armed w/ a book of matches or 12 to light and combat that issue --099-780. it's amazing how well that works

was the P-LINE CX and not flouroclear? it will work. we can always use a leader. not problem

no need for a propane burner. we have a gas stove. cook a pie? fresh cookies? we've always said we were going to but never had. baked goods are a bonus
