      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.

Seagull or Saganaga next week

Recommended Posts

I will be spending the week at Hungry Jack Outfitters and would like to take the father in law and my 6 year old on a day trip for some walleyes.

I have only been to this area once, last year for a couple days and have read some things about these two lakes for walleyes.

Seagull is a little closer, but if you could spend one day, or a half day on either of these two lakes, which would you choose? Where would you start? I am assuming my GPS with the Lakemaster chip will at least have the maps loaded for both of these lakes, I realize it won't be accurate 100%, but think that could at least keep us from getting lost. :-)

Some pointers for a BWCA are rookie are greatly appreciated, including which accesses to go to.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Being a rookie to the area, I wasn't aware of hp restrictions.

I see both lakes have restrictions so that pretty much rules out my boat. Well, maybe have to stay on Hungry Jack and try harder for walleyes. Didn't have any luck last year for walleyes on HJ.

I caught a nice 17" smallie off of the seagull lake public access last week if you like to shore fish. wink.gif. If your looking for the elusive walleyes sag would be your best bet. You should give Seagull creek fishing camp a call and see if you can get a guide. There rates are very reasonable and the guides are all very good and will put you on fish. grin.gif

I will have to check that out. I have never hired a guide. For some reason, it is a warped sense of reality probably, but I would almost rather try to find the fish myself and not catch anything, than to pay someone. Kinda dumb I know, but it makes it more rewarding when I actually am successful.

I read your comments in the other post about that service. I will check them out and see what it would end up being. It would probably be worth the $$$.

This was the first time i ever hired a guide and it was well worth the $$$. They charge 275$ and they take you fishing from 7:30 am to 5 pm. The only thing you need is a camera and you have to bring lunch for your guide. You should also bring rain gear( i learned this lesson the hard way frown.gif).

      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.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      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...

      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.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      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.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      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 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      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.
