I can't imagine using the forums not being registered... did you all (guests) know that it keeps track of what posts are new? They are highlighted in blue. Even if you don't ever post... you should register just for that.

Lot's of times, I just read....besides, last summer somebody confessed to being an FM aholic, this way, without logging in, we can remain closet members, like sneaking something without anybody knowing we are there. I confess, I read a lot of times, but really don't want or have anything to reply, so I don't login.

I have been a member for a while now. For the longest time I just read and rarely posted. But recently I have had more opportunity & time on my computer and post regularly.

I think the stats get a little misleading at times, some of the "anonymous" users are actually registered, they just are not logged in. This happens to me a lot, especially when I am on here at my work computer. But there still is many that should regsiter and add some posts to make this site a little more active.

I get lost in all the info if I do not sign in. Register and join in. Also you can check to see who is on line and find area's that you have not been to and check them out. The "who is on line" feature has brought me into circles I did not think I would be in. It is fun, but only availible to register FM member. Its free!

I read the forum for years and determined that all fishermen are liars laugh.gif

So I decided that okay, I'll join, just to help say a thing or two that might be truthful...

Oopss...I said one truthful thing now. That leaves only one more truthful thing to say. grin.gif

Yes, there are always a lot of people viewing every day. That is why I said in some other post that when people talk about hot lakes in here, it gets flooded with people afterwards....

Everybody has got their own reasons to sign up. We just need to give them the right reasons...LOL's

Maybe brag about the "big fish stories." Stories like:

The One That Got Away

I Hooked Into the Biggest Fish Scale Ever!

I Couldn't Land'm, So I Jumped Into the Water to Wrestle'm

Must've Been a New State Record

It's the Smartest Fish!

The Fish that Stoled my Boat!

ARIZONA_TIM

My voyeuristic days are over!!!

Hello fellow FM’ers…my name is ARIZONA TIM and the wife and I have been in MN for almost 2 years now. We moved up here from Phoenix for work but the other big selling factor was all of the lakes/fishing!

We live near Nokomis so I’m out there about 2-3 times a week.

I caught my first ‘eye today which was a whoppin’ 8 inches. Nokomis was also the sight of my other first…a 9 lb musky last June. I was on a fishin’ high for a week after battling that mutha.

This site is pretty cool and I’ve enjoyed all the tips that everyone has offered up.

Thanks folks!

Yikes! The late night crowd is back... again echoing my original post... at 2:00am Friday there are currently over seven hundred people viewing the fish MN forums... and only 4% (thirty one) are members... Wow those stats are unreal! Lots of shy people I guess... and I thought I was shy!

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
    • jigging-matt
      Nice pics.  Can't wait to get out this weekend and give it a try.
