Where Are The Minnesotans?

Recommended Posts

I know a few of the guys on here from MN, but they are far and few between. So all you Minnesotans out there should let us know where you are from, where you fish, and all of your sweet spots :)

Chris, Stange is very knowledgable, but it is hilarious when he thinks he comes up with certain ways to fish that have been out for years. "Today we are going to make history by catching a bass with a jig head/swimbait combo" haha

What part of 'sota are you from? Fishing any tournys in the area?

What lakes do you guys usually stick the bigger bass? I just love the Minne-SOWA-ta lakes. Heaven on earth.

I love that the bass fishing popularity is behind muskie, walley, and smallies here in MN, because like you said shimmy, it doesnt get much better imo than MN bass fishing.

We dont have to deal with pressured lakes, and we can always cant on highly vegetated lakes, which fits perfectly into the way I fish.

As far as the big fish lakes, I honestly think most of the lakes are hiding some BIGGINS, but you have to take the time to study each specific lake to find them.

Central Minnesota resident here. I've been kinda busy lately to come around and check things up on this site. I'm currently in Lewisville preping for the Open that starts tomorrow. I mostly fish Lake Minnewaska, the Alexandria Chain, Big Birch, but I also love going up to fish Leech and Mille Lacs alot for smallies.

I use photobucket and then use the direct link that they provide. Try that.

David Bromenshenkel. Yea Seth and Josh didn't do so well down here. I talked to them alittle bit and they said practice just wasn't great. They both didn't make the check cut unfortunately. I ended up in 17th on the co-angler side so it went good for atleast one guy from minnesota.

You know Vinny, i do firmly believe every lake out there has a more than likely chance of holding bass over 7 pounds and i believe there are several ones out there with bass over 9. I love fishing the Minneapolis area but only do so occasionally. The average fish we catch there is pretty long comparatively speaking. The 6 pounders we stick there are 23 inches and over whereas the Fergus Falls area tend to be 21-22 inches.

Any thoughts of lakes that have the most 7 pounders? I personally believe that Pelican lake (until it changes to a bird lake...hopefully not for awhile) has the most 7+ bass in the state. Any opinions?

Grew up in Minnetonka, live in Excelsior (but have just started fishing Lake Minnetonka the past couple of years, as I've fished more in the Brainerd area at my cabin). I'm looking forward to getting out on more metro lakes for bass this year.

Vinny, now that you've got the new rig, how about taking a fellow member out in that nice rig? I can be open whenever you want to head out! I'm looking at a few Stratos boats as well...let me know.

I would agree, and it is the saddest thing in the world to think of what they are going to do to that beautiful lake.

Lets do it! I will let you know when my first trip to Tonka will be. We should meet at Lord Fletchers and grab a few.

It will be May 1 tomorrow.

Guys up in Minnysota are still freezing their fannies off waiting for the snow and ice to melt.

They will then post as to what they have been doing when they can get to some water.
