How Cool Is FishingMN?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Very cool.
I joined North American Fishing Club and while cruising their site as a member I landed in their forums area. It has the same format as this one but with one big difference; Minnesota Nice.

They weren't nearly as open, or as friendly. They have a national format, and I'm sure that's great and useful for folks travelling, but there wasn't the comeraderie of knowing that you're communicating with neighbors. They spoke of scams on their forums, and got downright rude at times (worse than our banters over in Political Power) and I didn't feel comfey there at all. Heck, I even have a different handle over there 'cause well, I feel that "web-caution" over there that I don't feel quite as much over here.

I probably won't go back there for much unless I need something, but whenever I have a tip, or a hotspot, or just wanna brag - it'll be here.

Peace Ya'll,

Yeah FM is a nice place to talk about things related to fishing and hunting. I enjoy talking to various people about experiences and tactics. I would love to meet some of these people but my schedule is a tough one to work out. grin.gif Anyways thanks to all who make it a great site.

Maybe someday I'll run into a couple of ya.

Well believe it or not Rob I am a lifetime member of the NAFC; but I don't waste any time on there message board. I've been to pretty much all the other message boards and I've stopped going. FM.com is the best by far. The really well known walleye one is rude and obnoxious... Anyhow, I fully agree with RobertC: This is the place to go to.

I pretty much stick to two sites...This one and a Catfish one from down south. Fishingminnesota has become a real popular place to go and so has the other one. The only thing that bugs me a little are some of the soap operas, but that won't go away anyhow.....Maybe minnows (do) grow up?

WET NETS! FM IS COOL

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.

      Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread

      So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries  and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few  extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.

      That would make a difference now wouldn't it?  Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.

      Thank you.

      If you want to get in there by snow mobile or walking over, Wolf Lake is worth a try.
    • westguy
      Same.....Even when logged in it tells me I have no permissions.

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.
