      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has 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. Initially 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 see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then 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.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

turkey poults

Recommended Posts


Looks like the turkeys pulled off a good hatch this spring. Been seeing some huge clutches of poults running around with their Mom's. I ran into one huge group (turned out to be 2 hens together) of 15-20 on a jobsite the other day. They were no bigger than small Bobwhites with long legs. What really amazed me is how these tiny little puff balls could already fly...! I came around the corner on this walking path and their they all were... they took one look at me and all flushed or scattered. The ones who flew easily went 20-30'! The 2 hens were in the brome grass and started clucking loudly to regroup and 5 minutes later I saw them clearing the next hill. I then went up ahead and flushed a hen right off the path... she was still sitting on her nest!

This little honey hole won't last long. The back 40 only has walking trails through it now... but a few years from now it will be houses. The builder gave me permission to archery hunt it next year... I'm thinking it's time to try with the stick and string... We consistantly see 10-20 birds a day when working out there... It's beautiful oak bluffs right off the St. Croix. One day I had 5 Toms strutting and gobbling for my mouth mimic calling... I don't think they've ever seen a hunter! I like those odds! grin.gif But I'm sure they will find a way to even them out!!!

Good Luck!
