Looks like I might be moving down towards the Faribault/Medford area from the metro. So I might be able to attend more FM Get togethers! Any good lakes in that area, I'm big into bass and tournament fishing though so it will more than likely just increase my drivetime to get north.

Well, if you are big into bass fishing, you won't have to go very far. There are lots of good lakes`with big fish in them near Faribault.

Cedar, Shields, Mazaska are just a few off the top of my head that are very good bass lakes. Cedar is known for good numbers of fish over 5 lbs. There are also many tournament in the southcentral area. There are plenty of guys on this forum that fish some of those tourneys that can get you straightened out.

If you're looking for houses in the area, may I suggest New Prague...

I'm not sure if you've been watching the news in the last couple of months but a developer down here got into the bad mortgage business, built a lot of nice homes and then provided fraudulent mortgages to people that normally couldn't afford those houses. Long story short, there's been a lot of foreclosures. There's roughly 150-200 beautiful 4 bedroom homes that will probably go for around $200,000. They're all currently sitting vacant.

As a legitimate home owner, it makes me sick because my property value just took a big hit. But for someone looking to move to the area, it's a no-brainer!

About 15-20 Minutes from the lakes mentioned above, and about the same from all the south Metro lakes. And about 1/2 hour from Faribault. My wife works there and makes the commute daily.

Thought I'd throw it out there. It would be good to have another FM'er in the neighborhood.

Ya, I love tourney fishing. And may i suggest if anyone is looking to try it fishing as a co-angler in the Silverado series is a blast and a great way to learn. We missed the new z19 Ranger top place by .6 lbs this year. Bummer. One 3 lber and we'd won. Hey, if/when I move we can carpool, haha.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;
    • eyeguy 54
      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
