      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. Spring Turkey

    I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket
  3. Today
  4. Spring Turkey

    I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.
  5. Spring Turkey

    I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,
  6. Bait to use

    Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend. The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.
  7. Spring Turkey

    I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well. I want to get a full strut
  8. Yesterday
  9. Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!
  10. Spring Turkey

    Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X. Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better
  11. Sight Fishing

    Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia! But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once. You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses! Have fun, good fishing!
  12. We have a couple openings if anyone is interested…We will be capped at 15 boats. http://www.minnbass.com 2018 Schedule June 2, 2018 – Farm Island June 16, 2018 – Upper/Lower Mission July 7, 2018 – Clearwater July 28, 2018 – Lobster August 18, 2018 – Big Birch September 8, 2018 – Championship, Lake TBD $25 membership per person $400 entry per team Big Bass $20 per boat at the ramp Rules, Payouts and other information listed on the website We are a club that has a ton of fun and we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
  13. Spearfishing - Where are you now?

    The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet. Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt. I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see. Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year. Good luck this weekend!
  14. Spring Turkey

    Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.
  15. Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Last week
  19. 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!!
  20. 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.
  21. 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...
  22. Bait to use

    Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
  23. 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.
  24. Bait to use

    Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"
  25. 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!!!
  26. Millacs good fishing or not

    Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!
  27. 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.
  28. 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.
