I am looking for a good local fishing magazine. i know of the Minnesota Sportsman, does anyone have any other suggestions of magazines that would deal with fishing in MN specifically with locations, tactics, technology stuff? grin.gif

I would consider all the articles and such on FM an Online magazine.. in which you can ask your own questions... I think you have your mag right here!!!! Make sure you check out the articles on the front page and see if you can find back articles as well..

I really enjoy The Outdoor News. It is MN specific and has a ton of great articles every week about fishing and hunting. I look forward to Thursdays because that is when it arrives in my mailbox. I also subscribe to Minnesota Sportsman and Midwest Outdoors, but my favorite is the Outdoor News.

I would have to agree with Bushwacker on the Outdoor News. I have suscribed to it for about 15 years, and really enjoy it.

For Minnesota related news and articles, I look to Outdoor News hands down.

Joe Fellegy's Mille Lacs Digest is also a good little paper but very specific to Mille Lacs and is only published a few times a year.

You really can't go wrong with a pile of In-Fisherman's either.

O.N for me too! I like the "Cuffs and Collars section" It has some funny stories sometimes. Like the one that a farmer was asked how some tires made it in his burn pile, he said the cows must have rolled them in there. grin.gif

I also am in the Outdoor News boat on this one...quality stuff. I will not buy Minnesota Sportsman. I admire their effort to put forth an outdoors publication, but I feel that there are way too many occasions in which they exploit smaller "honey-holes" that cannot handle heavy fishing pressure by printing articles about them, or mentioning them in species specific articles in an attempt to sell magazines. Just my opinion though...

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.

      On the south end...  A great 2022 MN Fishing Opener for most anglers.  The walleyes and saugers are hungry and the bite is on!  Good numbers of fish caught. Lots of big fish amongst the eaters.  Most anglers were vertically jigging in 6' - 20'.  Anchor up and jig over the side of the boat.  A nice mix of sizes.   The water is a bit dirty on the east portion of the south shore due to runoff from the rivers.  A bright jig with a minnow is the most productive. Reports were also good from the west portion of the south shore.  A bit cleaner water and equally good bite.  Lots of big fish mixed in with eaters.  Some anglers fishing on structure or on the edge of structure where available. On the Rainy River...   A lot of walleyes in the river as predicted, but the current is ripping and the water is a bit dirty.  Those who found slack water often found fish.  The norm was 6' - 15' with a bright jig and minnow.   Typical spots in the main channel were tough to fish due to high current.  The fast moving water helped to congregate fish.  Once you found them, there were normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig bite up at the Angle for the opener.  Most fish were caught in 6' - 20' adjacent shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  With cold water, a subtle presentation.  Both fatheads and frozen shiners worked well. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)
