The snowbelts vary throughout the state.

Absolutely nothing, he just wanted to make it known that he was against fracking.

Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan offer some of the very best fishing.

Exactly. Some New Yorkers deserve New York.

Maybe where you are but not everywhere.

This. As far as freshwater fishing is concerned, these states can't be beat. The Dakotas aren't all that far behind either.

While I'm trying to avoid humidity, I really just mean exteeme humidity, like in the Deep and coastal South. I'm not sure if I could be comfortable in southern Louisiana, but something like Michigan or Upstate New York would be fine. Looks like those are the first two I'll really start considering.

Does anyone have experience with fishing and/or living in Nebraska or the Dakotas? Or maybe Maine?

Those are a few places I've considered but haven't heard about yet.

Michigan, Minnesota, or Wisconsin.


You're never far from water in any of those states. In MI, I think the farthest you can be from a Great Lake is about 80 miles. We catch walleye, perch, pike, salmon and trout all year. We don't do much bass fishing but I'm sure it's great.

I have lived in Michigan before. If you choose Michigan, especially if fishing is the main motivation for moving there I think you should look specifically at the northern half of the state. ( upper Michigan and northern third of lower Michigan). By far the best fishing is there, the best scenery and the best quality of life. Obviously jobs are a major consideration but just know the northern half of Michigan is MUCH nicer than the bottom half.

Wisconsin is another good choice, a very nice state but not quite as much Great Lake frontage. However they have every bit as much inland fishing opportunities as Michigan does. They also have nicer cities, so if you need a city for jobs you will not find yourself in a place like Detroit or Flint in Wisconsin.

Remember the upper Midwest is cold.....can be very cold. Be warned the climate up there is brutal. Michigan is famous for lake snow being downwind of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior it falls by the foot. Midwest people are winter hardy and tough from a lifetime of living like that. Prepare yourself for this if you are serious about living up there.
