Hey all, I am a sophomore at SMSU in Marshall, and I am wondering where i can go to catch some fish. I usually get my fill of ice fishing up at my cabin on Lake Winnibigoshish and back home in Sartell, MN. I am interested in getting into fishing around here. I will not have too much time to fish due to class and work etc... but I am wondering if I can get some advice as to which lakes in the area i should try to get something to tug on my line. I dont care how big, I just want to fish!

Been catching some nice fish on Wood Lake. It is a night bite. Been catching some nice fish in 3 feet of water after dark. We have been catching more fish on tip-ups then in the house. Ranging from 1-3 pounds along with several 10 inch fish. Had two that broke the line and a 6 pound northern last weekend.

      Way to go.  We got into them this weekend also but wow was travel difficult in spots.  We drove wheelers out onto two lakes and took an hour to get off of one lake.

      We all can use this SHOP to buy the covers. I think it's the best offer.

      Fished out of Morris Pt 1/2 day Friday and all of Sat. and it was bad.  5 of us kept a total of 5 fish.  Fished in 32 ft Fri, 28 ft Sat and 21 ft. at sunset.  Marked a lot but I'm pretty sure they were little ones or tullibee.  Access was pretty beat up when we left Sat. night.  Got checked by DNR and they said everyone that they checked had the same results as us.

      Mike has been in the business for more then 30 years and also use to teach it up at Pine City Voc Tech.  He does it all.  The crappie and a few others he did for me. Lighting not the best. Tell him Steve A, from Brooklyn Center sent you. May be he will give you a $1 off! 😄

      Yeah north side of Co Rd 35 close to the road(Co Rd 176 (?))  that comes back south from the church. You must've caused quite a ruckus down  there as I see they're still lookin for ya as the poster is back up.

      I've read about the mail boat in the past, and it sounds like a great operation.   My water-access neighbors just had a PO Box in town and would pick up their mail on a semi-regular basis. At my estimate, 95% of mail that arrives is junk so you probably aren't missing much by picking it up once per week.
