      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.

Recommended Posts

walleyeking#8

For anyone who hasn't fished this and for all those who have, we will once again have the annual tournament on diamond lake in August. Scheduled date is August 25th with a start time of 7:00a.m. For anyone who is interested, this is a two person team tournament with a $25 per team entry fee. 100% payout. Fishing times are 7:00a.m-2:00p.m. A maximum of 15 teams will be allowed to fish in this tournament. First 15 teams to sign up will be entered. Last year we had a great turnout and I am hoping for a repeat this year. For more info or questions about this tournament, send me an email at monbuck_8@hotmail.com or monbuck8@yahoo.com. Entry forms can be mailed to you or sent by email. Deadline for signing up is August 19th. Hope to see some new faces and the regular ones out there again this year.

sparce,not sure what your asking. The tournament is based on a point system just as our walleye league has been for years now. Each team is allowed 6 fish to measure with a minimum of 14" required to measure. Each fish is measured at the end of the tournament and points are tallied, the team with the most points is the winner and so on.

If you are asking how many fish are brought in at the end of the tournament, last year the top team brought in 5 fish to be measured and the second place team had 6 and there were two other teams with just one fish.

If that hasn't answered your question, let me know in more detail what you are asking.

If you are asking about weights for weigh in the first year was four fish for ~18lbs, and Chad I do believe that we brought in 6 last year as well for ~16lbs, correct me if I am wrong. As he said we do his point system to determine the winner but these were agreed upon weights. We have only been allowing people to sign up a week prior, unless Chad says otherwise this year. We decided this to prevent people from jumping in if they are on fish or backing out if they are not. It creates a more level playing field, especially for those who do not have a chance to prefish readliy prior to. This is something that has bugged me with other tournaments I have done I guess. If you are confident enough then give it a shot, it will be fun nontheless. For me, it will be the first time even seeing the lake this year because I have lived in NE for the summer, similar to last year. I hope to see you there. Hopefully the bite keeps all the boats busy. End time has been 2pm

Is anyone else that has participated the last couple years on the forum here?

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      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.

      Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall

      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.
