      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.

Sunday Action

Recommended Posts

Iceman73

The action was pretty good yesterday. We caught a handfull of nice fish (22", 2-25" and a 27 1/2"), and saw lots of other big ones being pulled out by other boats. It was definitely as advertised, the mudflats had good action, but they were all big ones, no keepers that I saw. Leech was the ticket for us. Thanks for the info on the previous posts fellas about the chart bead and red hook. That's what produced for us.

My thoughts exactly Rodmaker! Buddy and I had a blast, even though we didn't catch a ton of fish, every fish we did catch was a beauty and over the slot, perfect! That's why I fish Mille Lacs, for the big ones. Kudos to the DNR for their management of that lake, nothing like pulling up 5+ pound walleyes all day long (assuming you can find them).

NO GO. I spent the weekend buying a crib. Let me tell you, I would have rather been fishing. The little guy is going to be living better than me. But its like the wedding, you just bring the credit card and keep your mouth shut. That or I will never fish again.

Your'e right. I remember those days. Just enjoy them!!! They grow up fast. We have a Senior graduating form Gustavus next year , and our youngest is going to be a Freshman at Irondale HS.

Maybe, and if your wife gives you an"you deserve a break and go fishing", give me a call.

I'll Post my Fri results Mon. I have photos from my 6/13 trip that should be showing up in the next day or so.

She does no my alias, but I she thinks that we are all mentally ill for talking about fishing this much so she never checks up on me. She is a psychologist so she might be right. I call it passionate, she calls me obsessed. Oh well. Here is the kicker though. I got an invitation to come up on Thursday, however I was told No because I have to save my vacation days for the baby.

Sounds like our home. They say the same. I think I'm both passionate & Obsessed for sure. Seems like everytime I'm driving home from a day there, I'm thinking how soon I can get up there again. grin.gif

It's all worth it once the little one is here. Of course that is easy for me to say since I made it out this past Sunday and has similiar results. Between 3 of us we had over a dozen fish in 4 hours, and only 2 keepers. It wasn't fast and furious but those big ones are fun to catch. Not many lakes you can catch big walleyes in the middle of the day in 90 degree heat without a cloud in the sky. grin.gif

I wish I had the same luck as you. We went to about 8 different flats and managed 1 23 incher, then headed in to garrison reef and got a 21 and 25 right away. No keepers.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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!!

      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.
    • Wanderer
      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... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      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.
