hey all

i am an iowan currently living in california. i spent two years in winona, and have a sister-in-law in houston. my wife and i LOVE the area, and plan on moving to lanesboro in the fall of 2011. i know that is a long way off, but i have already started using this site to plan my future fishing trips. i also have a buddy in rochester, and he could use all the fishing help he can get. my family and i will be in the area a few times over the next 5 years, and i hope to use information from this site to put my kids on some fish.

already i like the vibe that this board is putting off, can't wait to go to my 1st backwater brawl. i don't get to do alot of ice fishing here in sunny california.

i'm not really sure what i'll be able to add to the fourum, but i did live in winona, and fished alot. some of the names of the trout streams i fished have long been forgotten, but i will do what i can.

thanks for all the great updates, see ya soon

haven't hit the delta yet. i am a shore angler, and have heard that some of the accesses are in rough neighborhoods.

that is crazy that you fished the same lakes i fish now. i have been here four years, and am still trying to find new spots.

glad to see a garden fan out there.

and i am definately feelin' minnesota.

it's been so long since i've caught a walleye. there are a few lakes with pike, but they are considered a nuisence and it is illegal to put them back if you catch them. they must be killed. they would get huge eating all those trout if they would let them grow.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
