How did you first find this site? I had a friend tell me about it when I was looking for information about the Rainy River. Has become my go to site everyday as it covers all of my outdoor interests and everything else. Where else can you find out about dogs, steel head, movies, Bass and cooking. A complete site and the best out there..

I stumbled upon it in a google search looking for something or other. It was so long ago I forgot what I was looking for. But the funny thing was I didn't join for a year or two. Then I kept coming back and finding more and more information so eventually I said I need to get in on this. It's pretty much my top non-email site. I've seen the other sites, but this one is the best looking with the most members and information. I don't always like the politics of the site and the businesses, but I'm as guilty of those sins as anyone here. FM is like the good ol' U.S. of A, she ain't perfect but she's pretty darn good.

Since finding the site I've sent a lot of friends to it. I won't ever post as much as some people, but when I do I hope I help a friend or two. Besides, I would have even worse school grades if I was on here any more than I already am. Not to mention less time on the water tongue.gif

A buddy of mine told me about it and I haven't looked back since.

Thanks Meat-Run! Now I really don't get anything done at work.

I find out that most of my conversations lately start with these words... "On fishing minnesota today, there was a discussion about..."

My wife thinks I'm addicted! I think she's right grin.gif

I keep telling her that there are a lot worse addictions out there that a guy could have. I never get an arguement from that one.

The moderators and administrators kept bugging me to join. They were looking for a well read, handsome type to personify FM. After a financial agreement was reached, I acquiesced. It is a lot of work but the new boat I get every year from the site makes it worthwhile. grin.gif

      I'm wondering the same thing!  Low temps have been dropping below freezing and in shallow water that temp has to drop multiple degrees in a night.  I'm wondering if they went back to the breaks and are waiting again?

      Public water is the Surface of the Water, not the land beneath it.  So even if you can access the river through an easement the actual land that youre standing on could be private property. Everything on the DNR Website says "Surface of Water" in the trespassing section.  I agree this is unfortunate,  but as usual, the 3 drunk morons that don't care ruin it for the 1000 that do..... standard procedure these days.  1 idiot doesn't clean his boat, and wrecks a lake for thousands of people.
