Maybe I'm just all emotional and s*** 'cause I quit drinking, but FishingMN.com is the best. Until I started fishing hard and having some success this summer (MN is very different water from everywhere else I've lived), I thought Minnesnowta was my reward for some hideous crime. I can't remember how I got linked here...oh yeah, it was trying to find info on carp feeding habits after I noticed some largemouths schooling behind feeding carp. Anyway, Thanx. I'll do my best to patronize the sponsors.
Peace and wet lines,

Minnesota is a great place to be. We can't ask for more lakes and we get to open water fish and ice fish, best of both worlds. Welcome to the land of fishing and I'm glad you joined the forum.

Good fishin, Matt.

QUICK CLARIFICATION:
I grew up in Vermont, and then lived in Colorado and Florida. I couldn't get used to the flat, and the L O N G, sub-zero winters here. We came here for family and security for raising kids and let me tell ya, I'm glad my kids are growing up here. Good economy, good land, good air and good people. My truck is gonna last a lot longer too, without all those pesky hills to wear down the tranny wink.gif
Ever since I was a lil' kid, I wanted to feel a Northern Pike on my line, and this year I've nailed about a dozen. Still haven't had one over 3', but it's just a matter of time.

Your insinuating only riff raff watch college hockey? I totally disagree. The riff raff could not afford it. I saw nothing but classy people when I was at the Xcel Center last spring as we watched the Golden Gophers take the national title.

MAN ! This is great. A semi-emotional post about my gratitude to the Fishing MN family and staff, and about how fishing in MN so fantastic has turned into a thread about college hockey!!
MINNESOTA IS GREAT !!! A Wood tick on the scrotum is still enough to make me wanna put a few more thousand feet between me & sea level, though.:eek

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
