The Finger Lakes are a series of lakes below the Alma dam. Going south on hyw. 61 about 6-7 miles south of Wabasha look for the Pioneer campground sign. Take a left following the signs. Right in front of the campground there is a public access. Park in the access, follow the path to the finger lake you want to fish. The third finger is about 3/4 of a mile walk.

I was at the third fingers lake on 2/1/9 from 7:00 to 10:30am. Two of us caught 10 sunnies with 3 keepers. We went down there to see if we could find the auger that came off my brothers ice auger last week. He had a quick release on the auger and it failed. The auger went to the bottom. We got a magnet, and drilled three holes side by side. We tried some rope onto the magnet and dropped it down the holes. The very first try I heard and felt the magnet hit something. I started to pull on the rope and felt some heavyness,I kept pulling up on the rope and spun it around a half turn, and the magnet and the auger came up and out off the hole.I told my brother to grab it, he went after it like a 20 pound walleye. Needless to say he didn't care if we caught anything else all day. $192.00 for a new 4 blade auger.

      I wonder what the general location was??

      There will be a 60" out of there in next few years.

      I think there should be a catch and release state record category for EVERY fish.  Not just these larger ones.  Not everyone is interested in killing a fish that could potentially be a stated record.  I understand that they're trying to protect these larger species of fish but there should be a C & R option for all of them, not just some of them.   Way to go on the muskie.

      Corey Kitzmann of Davenport, Iowa now holds Minnesota’s brand-new state record catch-and-release muskellunge, a 57¼-inch monster caught on Lake Vermilion.   read it in the Duluth news tribune   https://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news/4731617-Iowa-angler-lands-monster-musky-on-Lake-Vermilion

      Got out Saturday and tried for some eyes and didn't find a one...barely graphed a fish in many areas!  We switched it up and went crappie fishing and found a school in deep water and caught enough for a meal.  We were using small jigging raps.  Great bait when trying to stay vertical in deeper water with a slight wind.  Hope to get out another time or 2 but we will see what ma nature has to say about that...Good Luck- Ozzie

      We are actually in the city of Monticello.  We had to get a building permit for the shooting shelters and MN DNR grant.  As part of the building permit process the city asked us to do some sound testing.  Interestingly, we are quieter then the city standards.The motorcycles and pickups with big tires were quite a bit louder then our shooting tests.  We also added sound deadening material to the ceilings of our shelters.  It helps big time.  Our club has been there since 1946 and predates any housing in the area.  MN ranges are protected when you are in compliance, and we are.  More improvements to come to our range soon.  Great place, great people.
