New MN Members Check in Here!
« on: Dec 09, 2008, 08:03 PM »
I would like to give a big welcome to all of the MN newbies! Let us know a bit about yourself!

Where are you from? Where do you fish? Are you new to the sport or a seasoned ice god?

You need 5 posts before you can view certain parts of the site, this can be a good place to get one out of the way! :laugh:

Hi I'm Bjorn and I'm an ice fishing addict... :tipup: I guess the first step is to admit it huh? ;D I've fished up North (LOW, URL) but never in the Metro area. I'll be fishing the Washington and Chisago area this Winter. Good luck to us all and stay safe!

My name is Jason. I've been ice fishing for 10 years now. Still can't catch the size or numbers I want but that's the way it goes they can always be bigger or have more of em. I release almost everything I catch unless a request for fish comes down from grandma. I love catching crappies and I'm always down for somebody new coming with me or taking me with them. I like to see how other people fish too. :tipup:
The best thing about ice fishing is that when you get on a good bite you don't have to worry about your beer getting warm!

Greetings from the West Metro! I fish Medicine, Independence and Parkers Lakes to name a few. I also try to get up to Mille Lacs a few times each season. Whenever I can I'll share what I've learned and look forward to hearing your insights and opinions. I'm looking forward to being an old pro at fishing hard water someday instead of being just old!

I'm Ben. I'm in Minneapolis, and I mainly fish the city lakes (usually Nokomis... it's close). This is only my second year on the ice, but I'm pretty much addicted. Used to hate winter until I figured out how to fish on hard water.

Hello,
My name is Eric and I live in Duluth.  I will mostly fish in the Duluth/Twin Ports area and also a little bit around my home town area of Chaska/Waconia.  It took me a few years but now I have all my gear and am ready to do some serious fishing!

 ;D Hello fellow MN ice fisherman, have been ice fishing for about 10 years now.  I love every year...even though I don't get out much (wife & 2 kids) I do make is count every time I go.  I have an annual trip up to Lake of the Woods with a group of guys (10-20).  I will also get out to Lake Traverse (for Northerns) and out to a small lake in WI for sunnies and crappies!  

LOWIFT...we were going to call it NOWIFE (North of Wherever Ice Fishing Excursion)...

Our annual LOWIFT (Lake of the Woods Ice Fishing Trip) will be on Jan 15-18 (fishing on the 16th & 17th)his year...I will be looking for any info on how the lake is doing and good tips the week or so leading up to it...

I wish you all the best of luck this year...and "Get 'em on the Ice!!"

 :laugh: :tipup:

Greetings all. I am Steve from Apple Valley.  I have been ice fishing irregularly for more than 40 years.  This year I plan on getting out every chance I can get. I purchased a new auger and flasher at the Ice Fishing Show and have already been out a half dozen times.  I fish Prior, occasionally The Lake of the Woods and Minnewaska.
This past Saturday my son and I fished Prior for a couple of hours without much success.  We moved across the lake to a small bay and fished in 25 feet of water where we found crappies at about 12 feet.We limited out and were home by 4 PM. They were hitting on a small fluorescent green jig with small minnows.
I am excited to have found this great site and am looking forward to getting acquainted with you fellow anglers :icefish:
Flasher guy!

I'm Kevin from Rosemount/Mankato.. I love to fish down south around Mankato, and I'm going to try some metro spots this winter. I'm very knowledgeable on open water and hardwater.

Name is Larry.  Been lurking for a while.  I fish mostly the north Metro and want to get my kids excited about fishing.  This has been the easiest way, since I don't have a boat.  Thanks for all your wisdom.
