    Vacation Rental By Owner – https://www.vrbo.com/. Have used that site for the past 5 years in a row and have had good experiences.

    I used to shoot 777 pellets but switched over to Blackhorn 209 a few years back and wouldn’t go back. It does take a hot primer. They recommend the CCI 209M or Federal 209A.

    110 grains of Blackhorn 209 and a 240 grain Precision Rifle Dead Center bullet. 4 shot group at 100 yards.

    Yep, still a keeper and no poison ivy in that pic.

    Bug spray, bug spray, and bug spray. Oh, and don’t forget the bug spray! 😉 The mosquitos up there can be brutal….but still worth it.

    Ballard’s does have a small shop that sells a limited amount of tackle and their guides will know what’s working well. There is a shop just down the road though. I’ve stayed at Ballard’s 3 or 4 times and have always seemed to have the best luck with a gold jig head and minnow. A flasher is a definitely plus but not a must. They rent them too if you don’t have one. Their food is excellent too by the way and they’ll cook the fish you catch for you for 5 bucks or so!

    I fished Emerson bay and Little Emerson bay on Saturday. Fishing was slow. The fish were very skittish so a camera helped a lot. Any amount of jigging and they would take off. If we’d see one come into view on the camera, we’d just lightly tap the jig to get their attention and then leave it alone or just sloooowwwwly lift it a inch or two. All we caught were bluegills. I didn’t see any perch on the camera. There was the occasional crappie that’d swim through but none would bite. After dropping a wax worm down the hole and watching a bluegill eat it and immediately spit it out, I switched to a yellow crappie nibble on a gill pill. All of the fish I caught were on that setup. Minnows didn’t do anything for us either.

    The ice conditions were fine in Emerson (2′ or so) but other parts of the lake got flakey due to the wind. There was a jeep, 2 sleds, and an ATV that went through on Saturday. Kabele’s in Spirit Lake does a good job of keeping up on the ice reports (and is an option for a place to stay, too).

    Good luck!

    I’ve got a Weston that I’ve been really happy with. I believe they make the one for Cabelas that looks similar. They take the same parts kit. It has a nice wide sealing strip. 1/4 inch or so.

    Duluth MN might be a good option. Lots to see and do along the north shore and an easy drive up I35. Tons of lakes up there and a chartered trip on Superior is always an option.

    Yep, Google has it flagged/blocked. Guessing a compromised ad or something like that. If you used Firefox, it’s worth adding the NoScript and AdBlockPlus addons. That helps against some of that sort of thing.

    I can’t say between those four but Fur-Fish-Game is hands down my favorite outdoors magazine. Been around forever. Light on the advertisements. Practical information. Inexpensive.

    I’ve got a Weston that I’ve been really happy with. It’s by no means cheap but is very heavy duty, has replaceable parts, and a really wide 1/4″ sealing bar.

    I noticed you’re using an iphone for the photos. This will dramatically help increase your photo quality!

    1 – Tap the “Settings” icon on the iPhone’s home screen, followed by the “General” option.

    2 – Tap the “Location Services” option and tap the slider to the right of the “Location Services” heading to slide the slider to the “ON” position.

    3 – Scroll down to the “Camera” option and tap the slider to the right of the “Camera” heading to slide the slider to the “ON” position.

    4 – Press the “Home” button and tap the “Camera” icon to launch the Camera application.

    5 – Tap the “Camera” icon to take a picture with the device.

    Under the hood it’s still more or less Windows 7….that horrible home screen with the tiles pretty well ruins it for me though. If you install this (http://www.classicshell.net), it makes it a little better. It brings back the Start menu and takes you directly to the desktop when you log in vs that tiled home screen. It is better on a tablet with a touch screen but getting rid of the Start menu was an epic fail in my opinion.

    Hobby Haven in Urbandale supposedly carries some stuff (according to their website at least). http://www.hobbyhaven.com/misc/metal.html
