Thanks Rick.   Lots of great folks here I would love to spend time on the water, ice or woods with.   Hopefully we get a chance doing to do so soon.  I really enjoy when we can get together and have fun!

The community here is the draw, not necessarily individuals.  Through the years I have been taught many things by reading posts of all the wise ones.  I really enjoy(ed) reading reports from Eyeguy, RickG, and Icehawk.  Heck I purchased my boat From Cliff, really miss his Vermilion expertise.  Borch, is probably single handedly responsible for me figuring out how to hunt a turkey, he probably doesn't even know it either!

I have personally met/know SmellEsox and Wanderer, they are couple of the finestest gentlemen I know.

This forum is still the best of its kind.

Agree it's hard to pin that.  Besides getting great input when needed, I really enjoy the fishing reports when I am landlocked I can live through them.  Reports that give some idea of the technique, type of fish, and area of the state that is all I need.  I guess for that reason I sort of like JBMaster Angler and Monster Moose threads as examples but I am probably missing others that do the same just off the top of my head here.  I also enjoy equipment reviews great to get first hand interactive conversation but there is not a specific example here.

There are the top posters we’ve come to appreciate and recognize for keeping this forum active, that’s for darn sure!  There are a few others that post a less frequent but have shared great stories and information; all very appreciated too!  I’ve seen some posts lately from members (on HSO too) that I wasn’t sure were still around.  It reminds me how many eyes do looks at these pages. 😎

 

Everyone I’ve met and had an opportunity to fish with or work on a car with have been genuine GOOD PEOPLE.  The only disappointment has been @ANYFISH2 cuz he isn’t available to fish with as much as I’d like too! 😄  But I get it, cuz I don’t get to go as much as I’d like to either...  Checking on posts always helps with that though. 
 

Thanks All, and especially to those that I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with.

Hard to pin it fine to just two.  If I had too it would be Icehawk, who does very detailed reports with great technique info and papadarv, whose post I always look forward to reading.  The guy is a creative genius and I really enjoy the stuff he comes up with.

I can’t pinpoint anyone in particular either. I do appreciate the mention though. 👍 I just like seeing activity here. I miss the good ol’ days when I first joined over 13 years ago, when this place was really booming. I’m a member of a bunch of different Facebook groups, and it’s just not the same as the forum.

I hear that @Kettle guy is pretty cool 🤣 In all honesty as I've mentioned in previous posts, this forum has helped me keep my sanity the last few years in school. After residency and when I finally get that 20' tiller I hope to meet up with a lot of you and take those willing out fishing!

You know where to find the tiller.

I would say Icehawk met him at a catfish get together fun to talk to and my wife really enjoyed chatting as well. Rick G and Eye guy are fun to hear from as well as all the others I guess I can't really nail down. I have learned from many on here.

      It's truly amazing how social media has transformed our lives.   Seems like not too long ago there was no such thing as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or TikTok.    Where did you go for fishing information, research, brotherhood and fellowship?   You spent a lot of time at bait shops, reading magazines and newspapers, or you dialed up into a fishing discussion bulletin board on the world wide web.   I'm a geek who preferred the electronic version so I spent A LOT of time online reading everything I could on web forums and discussion boards.  I came to find a primary home here with Fishing Minnesota in roughly 2000.   I dove in and met a lot of great fishing and personal friends.  I was provided the opportunity to get involved with the marketing side of fishing and learned quite a bit about the business of fishing.  
      I've been saddened to see how participation in forums such as this and others I follow, have crashed with the growing popularity of other platforms.
       
      What brings me here though today is to stop by and say hi to all my old fishing friends.  About 4 years ago I started a Catfish/Sturgeon guide service.  It has been growing steadily each year and one of the reoccurring themes I seem to experience is how many of my guests refer to Fishing Minnesota Dot Com and how they came to recognize me and my activity there from years ago.   
       
      For several years this site reigned supreme when it came to current fishing news and information and a place where everyone was here to help and became a brotherhood for many.  While there was always some political stuff tossed in, for the most part it was a place to forget about the world and focus on our favorite past time.    Oh how times have changed.....   
       
      I hope everyone is doing well and pushing through all the background noise in todays world.  What we are currently experiencing does not bode well for our mental health and I hope things change soon before we find ourselves in another 1863 Gettysburg.
       
      I'll share a great experience I had the other night with a Mother/Daughter captured by Ben Garving (Award winning KARE11 photojournalist).   He really did a great job in capturing what happens when you forget about outside things for a while and spend time with family and just sit back and enjoy our great outdoors.   No matter your political views or your thoughts on our natural resources and how they are managed, this is something we can all come together and embrace. 
       
      Take care!

      Yup, I started it. Seeing people post about water temps in the low 40s, and knowing that there will be a lot of cold temps this week....we may see the small bays freeze. I have a vested interest as I'd like to make it up next weekend, but have strong doubts that our small bay will be ice-free. Let's hear those reports as the lake begins to change.

      So the weather really tanked!! I was hoping to fish until November before winterizing the boat.
       
      Anyone been out...either reservoirs or up Hwy 53? Any idea of when landings start pulling docks...probably on DNR site huh?

      I'm looking to buy a Ski Doo Skandic snowmachine.
      Would prefer the 600 e-tec engine, but will consider any.
      2010 or newer.
      PM with particulars.
      If it would help, I have a 2003 Ski Doo Tundra with the single cylinder engine, for trade, excellent condition.
      Thanks

      Heading up to V the first weekend in October. Aside from the casino and The Landing, where can you boat to for lunch?

      Fishing Ottertail this past weekend we used my sons boat with a Humminbird Helix 9 Si/Di - Follow the Contour GPS. I also put my Vex SonarPhone one side mount which links to the Boating app. I recorded a track on the boating app with the Humminbird following a 16 ft. contour. As you can see on the Boating App track with Sonar video, ls off a fair distance from the Bird depth track. The boating app is a great tool for planning, searching fishing areas and fair on  GPS contours. Both Humminbird and Boating use the Glonass GPS system so no differance between long/lat location.

      Nice little unit that I just removed from a used boat recently bought. Everything seems to look and operate perfectly. Includes graph with mounting bracket, battery cable (fused) and transducer with mount. Buy new elsewhere for $169 or here used for $50. Can ship if you cover the cost.
       
      Here is the mfg description:
       
      The Lowrance Elite-4x Fishfinder, which includes an 83/200 broadband transducer, transmits sonar to track the presence and movement of targets beneath your boat. When you use this device, you’ll know when you’re in the right spot. This innovative fishing aid lets you enjoy your sport with a new level of confidence, even when you venture into new and unfamiliar waters. Its advanced electronics perform well in a wide variety of settings, including lakes, rivers, and marine coastlines.The 4.3-inch LED screen offers an impressive clarity in part because of the built-in noise rejection technology. This specially designed, high-resolution LED color display weighs 3.4 pounds and measures 3.8 by 6.6 by 2.2 inches, making it a compact finder that is perfect for those with kayaks or other small vessels.This design includes all of the features of the HDI Series but with the addition of special sonar technology. This model includes GPS and chart plotting capabilities. It also features a detailed U.S. map with high-definition mapping of more than 3,000 lakes, rivers, and coastal areas down to 1,000 feet. The addition of CHIRP sonar allows you to identify underwater targets more quickly. It also allows you to see targets at higher boat speeds, saving you time.This lightweight and compact finder includes advanced electronics commonly found in larger, more expensive models. The one-thumb operation of the page selector menu gives you fast and easy access to all the fish finder’s features. You’ll save time and get excellent results with Advanced Signal Processing, which reduces the need for manual adjustments. You’ll view the bottom detail, lake structures, and fish that you’re looking for more quickly and precisely. You can also avoid obstacles like submerged branches and rocks thanks to this device. TrackBack technology allows you to go back over the sonar history to check lake structure and fish targets for future reference. The TrackBack feature allows you to save a waypoint, eliminating the need to circle back and retrace your path. This model also supports DownScan imaging.The unit runs on 12-volt DC power. The CHIRP technology operates between 83 kHz and 200 kHz. The DownScan imaging system works with a 455/800 kHz transducer. The Lowrance Elite-4x Fishfinder can be set to a useful range of fishing modes. The Conventional sonar can be kept in General Use Mode or set to modes for fishing in shallow water, deep water, brackish water, fresh water, or clear water. There is also an ice fishing mode. These settings can help you see in water depths ranging from 60 feet to 1,000 feet.
