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.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
