      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.

Well since Steve is always too busy to take chunky fishing grin.gif, I had to pick up another boat. Hopefully I'll have her on Bside by next weekend. 1959 Alumacraft Queen Mary 19 footer. Yamaha 115 on her tail. Believe me, you'll know it's me when you see it. See ya on the water. Hope all is well with all you guys!

Chunky I thought maybe you took up Scuba Diving or something. wink.gif

Glad to hear from ya man. Maybe Ill drive up for a day and we can break that puppy in. Burntside is a beautiful lake and just trolling around for a day would be fun.

Take care man and good luck with the new rig.

Cisco Kid II ! I already ordered the graphics grin.gif . The original Cisco Kid is sitting in a haybarn in Embarass. The guys going to gut her and make her a center console. That is after he removes the 1000 lbs of wet floatation foam tongue.gif . I'll post some pictures of her when she's ship shape and ready to troll.

Just spent a week on Burntside, first time ever on the lake. You guys are lucky to have that in your back yard. Hard lake to fish for first timer, seems like the wind had to be blowing pretty hard to get any bites. Didn't get many fish, but all were nice size.

I was out of town all of July 4th week and somehow this post slipped by me. Chunkster, no time to take you fishing also means no time to take MYSELF fishing. mad.gif

Guess I've gotta give chunky his downriggers back now and get a set of my own. Darn.

Not only is it alive, but it's got a REALLY big inland laker boat. And one unique enough so he can't fade into the background. grin.gif

Congrats on the boat Mike!

Is it the big platform boat sitting at Trader Jacks?

You mean Trader Craig's, Frank? On the east edge of town in the same building as Spirit of the Wilderness Outfitters?

If I recall, the boat you're talking about is fiberglass, which wouldn't be Chunkster's aluminum one. Or maybe I'm just assuming that Alumacraft didn't make fiberglass boats, because of the Alumacraft name. But I haven't actually SEEN it yet, because the hermit hasn't come over to SHOW it to me.

I'm not even sure if it's real. I mean, what does a 1959 Alumacraft Dairy Queen 19 footer look like? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Trader something in Ely. I reread Chunky's post and it isn't the same boat. I know a guy in Ely that knows where Chunky lives and he even has a camera, maybe he'll go take a picture.

Sheesh BooBoo, who's the guy in the trenchcoat in front my house with the camera? The Queen is up at the studio getting some cosmetic work done. You'll see her soon enough.

Not really believing the masses about said boat, I snuck over to chunkytown without my camera to sniff around. So, no camera means no pics. Sorry. Not being a journalist anymore, I felt freed up from the ball and chain of providing visuals to go with the news. grin.gif

There is in fact a boat there. It's pretty big, and pretty wide, and pretty silver, and pretty near done being turned into a most waterworthy Cisco Kid II. She'll even do justice to the Big Lake when her time is right.

Man, that thick aluminum sure wears a long time.

      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.
    • Mark
      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.  
    • IceHawk
      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. 
    • mrpike1973
      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.
