      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.

After somewhat of a tough bite during the prefishing period looks like quite a few teams ended up catching fish. We just wanted to thank all of the anglers that fished the MWT Whitefish Chain qualifier. Thanks for stopping in at the bait shop all week. You guys kept us hopping. You guys are a class act. Same goes for the staff working the tournament. Each year that you guys come to town the show just keeps getting better and better. Thanks for coming to the Brainerd area, you guys are welcome back anytime. From everyone here at Sportland Bait and Tackle, your efforts and support are greatly appreciated.

Congratulations to local team Jeff Wohl/Jon Larson on their nice 4th place finish and 2nd biggest walleye of the day. Nice showing for the Nisswa Guide Service guides. I guess it payed off to have good bait in the boat. Nice job fellas!

Jason,

Were there any guides that did not fair well on Sunday? We noticed a few of them going into Cross, did they produce?

Buck12, looks like another good finish for you, look out we are on your tail though. River fishing is next and it is where we do our best. We should have a great showing.

I didn't get a chance to talk to all of the local guide teams. We had a couple of our guides in the tournament. Team Jeff Wohl/Jon Larson finished 4th with 2nd place big fish honors. We also had team Todd Andrist/Jenson, they finished 29th on the day.

Other local guides:

Team Blasing- 34th place

Dan Eigen/Tim Hanske- 40th place

Toby Kvalevoog-75th place

Good luck the rest of the season!

Buck 12,

We have been consistant all year, which has put us in TOPFIVE for the team of the year. Two years ago we finished 2nd in Red Wing with a full limit. We are excited to go back hoping our spots will pan out. Water level is key to your spots. Note the day before the last tourney they shut off the water in the dam which dropped the water level and turned off half of the excellent spots that we had. That is a big body of water and we will be prefishing often. Please send your email address and I will reply with more information.

Talk soon!!!

      I will be going out for the night bite on green this week. I need to find some more fish as the wife wants a fresh fish dinner.
    • Wanderer
      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!
    • Bigfatbert
      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated
    • JBMasterAngler
      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.
