Cruzin4abruzin,
Bring black berry brandy to keep warm and have plenty of stakes for the shanty!  The wind up there can be over bearing to say the least....maggots and "fresh" dead minnows.  I get mine from Robert's in GF or where ever you can; I keep a tank from left overs in the garage.  Scope out a dozen or so and keep'em in a small zip lock for the next day :tipup:

Know the feeling, them things are expensive!!  A buddy of mine uses his camo'd hunting blind; so if you know anyone with one of them they work well for keeping ya out of the wind.  For the tie downs just use some parachute cord tied off to some 2x4's.  Take the 18'' 2x4's with one hole drilled into the center, drop it into a ice hole and use as an anchor point.  Two or three of these works awesome.  We proved it ourselves one windy day up on Beaver Creek!  Good luck this weekend!! :tipup:
