      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.

Monsters of Rainy Lake!

Hi everyone, Rainy amazed me again last week. I ended up taking a couple of close buddies and they're dad along for a few day's up in the "bush." Needless to say the walleye's were on a feeding frenzy despite the drastic changes in the weather. I just keep pinching myself to really believe if this lake is true. I have to admit, I really didn't think I'd post here again because of what happend this winter, but cannot pass up the world class fishery that Rainy really is!! Enjoy the pics.. SB

First fish of the trip, 28"er

The fish were on the reef's hitting pretty much anything. Crawler harnesses with bottom bouncers and also Lindy's with leeches worked well. We caught a total of 95 walleye's in 4 day's fishing. Many fish in the 22-26" range. With many over 27. Thanks again Rainy Lake.. SB

Friends and I just got back from Rainy today. We caught lots in the 22-26" range, but none of the really big 'eyes. I did manage to pull out a 40.5" Northern though.

Those are some REALLY nice fish in the pictures!! Congrats.

SB-

Have to agree on the exceptional fishing on Rainy. Was up the week before you and the fishing was fantastic. We didn't have the numbers of big fish that you did, but we were able to manage a few wink.gif

Here is my biggest of the week!

Here is one that my Bro-In-Law caught:

I replied to your email on Monday, did you receive it? Hopefully, you don't have to wait until winter to return to the northland. Take care!

      Thanks guys.

      Up until about seven or eight years ago we were on Head-o-lakes bay. Minimal to no Rustys. Just the old school guys with the big blue boxer-mit claws. We were seeing rounded gobies.  We're on Frazer now. Wow! It's indescribable how many of those buggers there are. We've been trying to do our part by having frequent crawfish boils. Haven't made a dent but fun and tasty to try.

      will definitely be hunting turkeys again this year.  Love chasing these birds. Intend to go the archery route this year for the first time.  I have 2 kids that always are excited every year, until a couple of early mornings wain thier enthusiasm!  Figuring archery will allow me go on those days the kids dont want to wake up and I think I have something figured out.  Hope my skills will be up to the challenge.

      I've had very good luck with them also. Always pick some up before heading out on the lake.

      Was thinking about heading up the shore for some open water fishing. Was just wondering if their is alot of ice floating around and if not wat kind of wind would make it difficult to fish from shore? Thanks

      There is a bunch of walleyes in Mille lacs and for the first time in a long time there is  bait fish for them to eat. Mille lacs is a son of a gun to fish if there is a bunch of bait for walleyes to eat. It’s still one the best walleye fisheries in the world.

      Wait until open water season.  It was ranked #1 in the country for bass for a reason.  Its also ranked #6 in the nation for muskies too if you have enough patience to target them. A recent review of Mille Lacs was conducted by an independent Biologist from Lake Erie and found that what the DNR has done with that lake has been fair, accurate, and appropriate in terms of regulation/harvest/restrictions.  Course, some business owners might say otherwise but the science and data has been found to be true.

      I did not draw an early season permit.  I may be able to snag a surplus season B, otherwise it will be a later season for me this spring.  The birds are getting SMART.  They have refused to listen to any calls and they are decoy shy so I haven't been using calls or decoys for a while now.  Rather, I just sit there and wait on a travel route and hope they walk within range (sort of like deer hunting I guess).  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Scouting is obviously important.  What has also really helped is the use of Winchester Longbeard XR ammo.  I have harvested turkeys out to 60 yards with it in recent years.

      Found out we will have up to 17 guns up for grabs. Plus all the of other prizes. That does not include the 3 guns in the 3 gun raffle. The 3 gun raffle tickets must be purchased before the banquet, so let me know if you need some they are 5 bucks each.
