Hello !!! New to the area and thrilled to be here !!!!

4 posts in this topic

Hello all. I've just recently moved to Minnesota from the Southwest and I have to admit that the angling opportunities here definitely played a role in my choice. Now that I'm here I've made the St. Croix my fishing home. Wow! What a beautiful place! Never seen a bald eagle or a river otter in my life, let alone both within the same hour. Anyway it took me awhile to learn the new rigging styles here but I've been having some good luck. At first I only fished the channel near the kinnickinnic,(boy the traffic is terrible there!) but now I'm off and wandering and constantly on the lookout for new and better spots. Anyhow thanks for the opportunity to say hello and hopefully I'll make some good fishing friends in time. Oh! and one quick question.... Is there a specific channel on the marine band you guys use to communicate? It would help to get some on the water advice from you guys. Thanks!!! and keep your line in the water. laugh.gif

Glad to have you here. I am from Arizona and grew up fishing the Colorado River. I miss the warm winters, but not much else. I am on the river several days a week. I cannot get up as early as Walleye1, but if you ever see a 17 foot Starcraft with a 90 merc on the back say Hi. Nice to hear how the Southwest has change since I moved here 11 years ago.

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
