      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.

Good solid old shotgun. If the price is right grab it. But remember, steel shot might raise hell with the barrel. grin.gif

In fairly good shape you could expect to pay $175-$250. How's the barrel,wood and is there a vented rib?

many places you can check online.

I inherited one from my uncle. It had a 30'' barrel with a set fixed full choke. I never shot it. I recently had it cut down (26'') and had cscrew in chokes installed. I took it out for the first time last weekend. It shot great and functioned flawlessly.

My father-in-law passed one down to my son last year and it will probably hit the field for the first time this fall. He should be big enough to lug the 12 gauge around for a full day as last year he pulled it out twice for hunting pheasants and couldn't muster up the courage to carry it for the walk due to the weight versus his 20 gauge.

I checked around with a gun dealer that I usually buy my new stuff from and he said it would be an excellent shotgun as long as it was in working order. The minute that something breaks on it you are at the whim of availability of replacement parts for a shotgun that is no longer manufactured. That is where it could get expensive.

My son is proud as heck that he "inherited" his grandpa's gun and he honestly doesn't care a lick if he ever shoots anything with it and the price was definintely right.

I had a few problems with mine and had to have a part made but it wasnt to bad. I really like the gun but dont use it very often. Your son will love the gun and the fact that his grandpa used it is cool.

I have my fathers deer rifle and every few years still take it out and shoot a deer for the memories.

Is this the same as an 11-48?

I believe a 11-48 was a 5 shot and a sportsman 48 was a 3 shot version.

I have an 11-48 with a thirty inch barrel wit a full choke. this was my first shot gun I picked up a 24 inch improved. cly barrel for it and was going to use it for deer hunting so I installed a rifle sights on it and took it to the range and found that being the gun is not gas operated that there was so much recoil it litteraly blew off the front sights (sheared the screws off) thought it was the screws and installed a b-square scope mount and a 3x9 bushnell scope and shot it and it sheared the front bolt off of the b-square and the scope pasted me in the eye and wow what a black and blue mark that left along with a little blood. bought an 870 wingmasdter and deer barrel. the 11-48 is still an awsome bird gun thou and I also learned never over oil the magazine spring to much,oil it and wipe it down.

My 11-48 holds five 2 3/4 shells wasnt sure so I went and loaded it up and yep its five.

      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?

      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!

      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 .

      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      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.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush. 
    • IceHawk
      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,
