      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall
  4. Bait to use

    I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today. 3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.
  5. Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.
  6. Yesterday
  7. Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!
  8. Bait to use

    There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
  9. Bait to use

    Call ahead for shiners. I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state. At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...
  10. Bait to use

    Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
  11. Bait to use

    suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.
  12. Bait to use

    Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"
  13. Fishing for Peacock Bass on Vacation

    What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
  14. Millacs good fishing or not

    Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!
  15. Bait to use

    Smaller suckers and shiners. One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake. A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
  16. Spearfishing - Where are you now?

    Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
  17. Spearfishing - Where are you now?

    Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday. I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day. Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again. Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...
  18. Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.
  19. Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
  20. Spring Turkey

    Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys? They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also. Yes I realize a lot of people don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.
  21. I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
  22. Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday
  23. Bait to use

    Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring.
  24. Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
  25. Last week
  26. I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff
  27. Anoka county union says it is opening in the sports authority building in Coon Rapids. Cant Wait!
  28. I've found it interesting that the past couple years we haven't seen quite the numbers of rustys on our beach in the summer.
