      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.

A buddy of mine that I met down at UMD came up with his grandpa this weekend to do a little fishing. They are from the Dassel, Hutchinson area so there is not a whole lot of great fishing opportunities down there and they had a blast this weekend.

My buddy and I started out in Black Bay for a few hours on Friday night. My buddies first fish was a 26.5", then I cuaght a 20", and then he caught a 21"...and then we got chased off by the rain. confused.gif We were pulling F13 raps over 6' of water.

Saturday we headed up into Canada and hit up a few lakes, trying to get the multi-species run. We were successful on Crappies, Northern, and Bass, but the walleyes weren't cooperating on the little lake that we tried. The crappies were hitting tubes, the Northern were slamming Bucktails, and the bass liked X-Raps.

Sunday, we started out up in Redgut. And it was great! grin.gif In the first two hours we boated 20-25 walleyes. Most of which ran 12-15 inches, nice eaters, but no big ones like we had hoped for. All the walleyes were caught on a jig and a minnow or a spinner and a Gulp Crawler. The Berkley Bungee Leech produced one fish. The fish were STACKED on the reef edge in about 26' of water. I graphed 16 nice marks in a small area coming up the edge and it wasn't long before we were tearing into them. We chased a few crappie off the Island edges and Reefs in Redgut as well. Nothing huge, but we managed some nice 10.5-11". All the crappies were caught on Southern Pro Crappie Tubes, the Slug was by far better than the Stingers. I went looking for a few bigger crappies up in Porters and Perry Straights, but they were still scattered throughout the area.

All in all a productive weekend and very fun. I can't wait to get up there and troll some Reef Runners for some bigger eyes though.

Yeah well, those walleyes don't even hold a candle to the monters that you guys bagged last time! Those were some really nice fish. I am hoping that I can get a few more of them soon!

Take Care SB!

      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.

      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.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.

      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.

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff
