I found a good deal of ice on the local lakes- at least 5 inches.  Oh yeah, I'm in Alaska.  I grew up in Stevens Point but now call Alaska home.  I like to check out things in the old stompin' grounds.  As for good deals... a friend of mine moved out of state last summer and gave me two Ugly Stik ice rods with reels that he never used.  I occasionally find good deals at garage sales during the spring and summer.  It's amazing how many people move up here and end up leaving after only a couple of years.  They have a moving sale and things go cheap!  I've been here now for about 10 years.  We were in Wisconsin a couple of weeks ago when my brother got married and I stumbled across a 40 acre plot that was beautiful enough to tempt me to move back... but I decided against it.  Perhaps in a couple of years we'll return, but there is too much hunting and fishing left to do up here.
