I just put an offer in on a house in Glyndon. I dont close till the middle of March, so I guess I am thinking ahead... -What are some of the closer lakes to the area that are good to wet a line in?

I have a Cabin just north of Little Falls that I fish at just about every weekend in the summer & I keep a shack on it in the winter, but it would be nice to find a good place for after work and "sick" days.

Thanks!

Welcome to Glyndon! There are a few of us from Glyndon that actively monitor this forum. If you want, get ahold of me and I can take you or direct you to a couple spots. I find that I personally have better fishing success in the winter than I do in the summer. So I am sure you can get good advice from others for the summer spots. What type of fish do you like to hunt? There are quite a few lakes within a 1/2-1 hour drive from Glyndon.

Again, welcome to the area.

I to am from Glyndon and have fished many hours with the Ice l0rd. Welcome. The main thing to remember when fishing in Becker or Otter Tail county is that these lakes are considered clear water lakes. Low light fishing conditions with the right weather produce the best in my opinion. I have a trailer on Rush Lake in east Otter Tail County. This lake is part of the Otter tail river system and can be hot and cold all in the same day. I like Pelican for the hard water. Good Luck

There are many lakes in the DL area; what type of fish will you be chasing? That will make a difference as to the suggestions you get. On a side note, if you need any assistance in financing your home, or to see if who you are currently working with is giving you a good deal, I'd be more than happy to help. I'll be sure to give you the FishingMN discount laugh.gif.

I'm running a special that for all applications taken between Feb 1 and March 31, I will pay for the appraisal fee (up to $400). Sound Good?

Welcome to Glyndon. As the other guys have stated you have many lakes to choose from all within a 1 hr drive. We have the bass/panfish lakes, classic walleye lakes with lots of structure to fish, and even a few musky lakes. It all depends on what you like to fish for. BTW dont forget the river systems in the area. The Red can and does produce some good fishing, as does the Buffalo River and both are right at your back door.

Fisherdog, I wish I would have known about your offer sooner, as we just did a refinance. I could have put that $400 towards a new gun or something.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I am pretty excited to make the move. It is nice to hear that there are a good number of avid fishermen in the area...

We have a cabin over on Lake Alexander (15min north of Little Falls). I do a bunch of muskie and eye fishing there in the summer. I am originally from Lake Minnetonka where the Bass fishing is awsome and the muskie bite has been good for the past five years or so.

In the winter I usually try to track down the crapps and eyes. But beggers cant be choosers! I am just excited to explore some new lakes in the area. I will be sure to keep an eye on this website to stay up to date. Glyndon is a pretty small town, so chances are some us may run into eachother. Thanks!

Oh yeah.. another question..

I notice that there are about 5 million sled tracks in the town and heading to Buffalo River. Does that river get a lot of guys riding it in the winter? Are there any trail systems that are near by?

I don't think the river gets ridden a whole lot. There is a groomed trail system that runs right around the town and neighboring towns. There also is a snowmobile club that meets right in Glyndon once a month at the fire hall. They are the ones that maintain the trails, if you a an avid snowmobiler, you may want to think about joining.

Welcome, my Brother.

I am from an infamous town just 10 miles from you called Hawley-wood.

In Hawley we have good Lefse, a mayor that breaks into people's homes and stabs knives in the walls, a former police chief that liked his beer and a turtle burner just to name a few. Other than that we are pretty good folks around here.

Glad to have another fisher-fella in the area.
