That and just think what this site will be like 5 even 10 years from now!
It can only get better.
I actually registered in 2000 but i got a new handle so that bumped me up again.

I registered back in 2000, under a different handle. There were a only handful of forums back. Now, there is a forum for almost everything. Also had a different look to the pages.

Since, my PC crashed, and had to reregister last month. Kind of funny reading my posts from last spring, yet it says I'm registered in October.

Oops, back to work!

I've wondered about that also. What was it like when it first started? What improvements were made? How many forums? It would've been neat to have watched the progression. I do know it's a great site now! I can imagine what the future holds for FM. I would almost bet on one thing.....IT'S ALL GOOD!!!! smile.gif

I've sold two boats, bought a boat and trailer, got fishing and hunting tips, hooked up with guides and accommodations. All for free.

Yep, lost my original handle also. I'm guessing I started frequenting FM around mid 2000. The forums have expanded 3 fold, innovative products emerge often, and the data base of knowledge is now massive!

Sometimes people lose sight that this site is free to the fishing community and all users. Please support FM, its product offerings and services and help keep it that way. Just a little way we can say thank-you to Rick.

fiskyknut, My previous handle was fishstunner. I think I had about 315 posts under that one and then I decided to switch my handle.

Back then the whole Forum Home Page was small and didnt take a whole lot of time to scan through. I only visited once a day or once every 2 days. Now I want to visit every day, 2 times a day to look at 90% of the fishing stuff on here.

Did the site begin in 2000? It is Fantastic! Allows me to be in Minnesota and fishing even though I am at work in Indiana. Keep up the posting! I have noticed a slow down since the weather has arrived I bet it really picks up in the spring.

Thanks,
Tad
Catch & Release!

Tadpole - Things are slowing down on this fourm, but the ice fishing fourm getting going strong this time of year. It'll really pick-up when we get ice.

I may get up there during thanksgiving break and check out the North County during the winter season, my first. Maybe try a little ice fishing. In Indiana, we may only have a week or two where the ice is safe. Any fishing takes place on rivers and at hot water discharges. Thanks for all the replies and good luck to all of you.

  • 'we have more fun' FishingMN Creators

The site started as Outdoor Minnesota in 1997, I changed it to Fishing MN in 1998 then added Fishing Minnesota in January of 1999. We had a message board and then finally added the forums in late 1999.

Most Posts dating back before 2002 have been wiped out. What you see mainly are last winters and forward posts.

There are some that date back prior to 2002 but only a small fraction. I had to dump most of them because of heavy growth and server size issues.

Those of you who've been around for at least a year can remember that.

Be sure to let all of you friends know about FishingMinnesota.com smile.gif

We'd love to extend the FishingMN family out to include all of your friends and family as well.

Remember...
"We Have More Fun"
