      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.

Night Of The Leaper...

Recommended Posts

DARK30

Larry The Satellite Guy (LFC)...able to step off the river bank in a single bound...well maybe two or three bounds ....and still come up with a fish.

Nice Leap Larry! Wish I had the camera rolling!grin.gif

You do any more leaping after I left? I'll be laughing all day at work.

leaping.....and then some.

Too bad you had to leave.

The fish started hitting after 12:00. As it happens so often, we were seriously discussing leaving when Larry's "alarm" starts going off, he runs down.....waits......clicker screaming by this time......waits.........uhhhhh......fish on!

BIG FISH!

The fish darn near didn't give him a choice about leaping when it almost pulled him over. He (carefully) found a way down the bank and we are both pumped cause we know it's a big fish.

Fish turns, goes downstream and all the sudden....poof. I heard every 4 letter word and even the 5 and 6 letter words with "broke off" mixed in somewhere.

Right after that, he tossed out some cutbait while he was rerigging his break off, and that one just about flies out of the rod holder (no clicker). This time he made it safe down to the river, but took another leap while reaching for the fish grin.gif A beauty 13lb channel

And then, he tossed his rerigged pole back out and it went off again, this time everything worked perfect and we landed a nice 18lb flat.

Fun night it sure was cool.gif

oh I totally fogot, we decided to leave again, and Larry said watch, we'll get a bite again, sure enough he did......I let him tell you what he caught grin.gif

I gotta believe he is in a deal of pain this morning though, from that first leap. I still don't know how he managed to keep his rod up, and the fish on, while doing a barrel roll down a 20 ft river bank

Ahhh it wasn't quite 20ft. But it sure was a much bigger step than I was expecting. blush.gif

made for some really good laughs. It would have been one of those perfect camera moments.

AS far as the last one of the night. Dturtle is passing off his title.

Big softshell... Yuck.

I am not sure about any one else, but this year for me has been a blooper year. From countless butt slides down hills in front of friends, to a total all out display of un balancment in front of a crown down on Pool two.

My pride and ego are ranking up their with my hook up ratio.

      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
    • Wanderer
      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.
