Hunter322, go to the forest lake thread and read through it and I think you may find the info you are looking for.

bassphish, no offense taken. I agree that there are good lakes that hold quality size fish nearby but the guy lives on Forest so he may as well learn the ropes out there just trying to shorten the learning curve a bit for him.

i agree as well. there are many other quality lakes in the area. its just easy to go out on fl because its less then 2 minutes from my house. i hope i can make it out this weekend if it warms up and so some of that info to rip some lips. thanks tunrevir.

Should be a good weekend to get out as it is supposed to be nicer this weekend.

I will be on flake Saturday most likely.

I live off of North Shore between one and two so I like Forest just because it is close and if you live close it means you can fish it more and learn the lake.

I live off Forest Lake between one and two as well (230th St. Ln.) with a 2 minute drive to Willow Pt. Sure is nice to have a lake nearby as a goto. I'll be out there all weekend as well. It can be a tough lake to fish, but it's fun to learn it's secrets.

I live right in that area as well...off 231st. Wasn't there talk of a Forest Lake Get Together? Tunrevir, Ol' Matty, ClamUp & I attended one a couple winters ago....mainly fished tip ups for pike one afternoon on first lake. It was nice to put faces with names and meet some more folks in the area. (I met a couple others last night when I stopped out at Tunrevir's shack to say hi. Rivernut and Prodigy...nice to meet you guys.) Let me know if another get together is in the works. Maybe a Sunday afternoon works well for people?

FLS - you and I are neighbors then! I'd like to connect with you folks as well. Keep me posted if a time and place is decided.

go buy a lake chip for a gps, find a nice inside turn right before a point leading to deeper water fish 16-26 fow from 4-6pm and stay away from the crowds. Put your house on 21 feet fish with silver jigging spoon tiped with head of a minnow, put a tip up on 16 and a tip up on 26ft tiped with a lively fathead. I can usually always get at least one walleye every trip.

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
