I realize this is kind of an older post, but I thought I would throw my hat in the ring.
I'm in Northern IA, but fish MN more than a couple of times a year (or at least hope to). The farthest north I go is Big Sandy Lake near McGregor (for now). Any advice on that area would be awesome. I'm also interested in the driftless region of MN if anyone has advice on that.
Also, first post...glad to be here!
