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.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
