      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.

The trip was nothing short of awesome!! The weather was great and as you can see the fish cooperated as well. We went in through the Mudro Lake access and made it as far as Thursday Bay on Crooked Lake, which lies on the Canadian Border. Waterfalls, cliff jumping, loons, deer, Indian pictographs, and acrobatic pike and smallmouth bass all made the trip great. I can't wait to go back next year!!

Wow...that is all I have to say. I am extremely jealous. I am ashamed to say that I have never been on a BWCA fishing trip. I would LOVE to go next year. Give me a shout if you want to get a few more guys on next years trip.

PS...How were the biting flies?

Great pictures guys...those are the best trips..especially when shared by good buddies.

This coming ice fishing season i'm taking 6 buddies on a late ice fishin trip to LOTW for northerns. 5 of the 6 have never stepped foot on a frozen lake smile.gif They are in for a real treat.

The fishing looked awesome for you guys...but as i'm sure you can attest to...it's the camping/cooking and joking around that makes trips so memorable. It certainly helps when the fish cooperate.

Your right about that. We all suffered through a lot of hard work with canoeing and portages, bugs, bags, gear, weather, only to reap the rewards of spending invaluable time together in some of the most pristine wilderness in the United States/Canada. Most of the pictures I share deal with fish and fishing, but most of the memories I have could never be told with pictures and usually have nothing to do with fishing.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      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.
