      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.

Just got home from the river. Spent about 4 hours in a honey hole trying to catch some cats, but nothing. Decided to switch things up and I am glad I did. Got a couple of walleyes,a small snot rocket (northern and on almost every cast I would latch into a nice smallie. Perch color spinner bait was the ticket! Also seen the biggest redhorse I have ever seen swim next to the boat. Hope you guys have some luck this weekend. I am out!

I was out last night, fighting the boat traffic. Struggled to catch fish while bouncing over waves. Caught quite a few smallies and a bunch of sheephead with a jig and a crawler. First time all year I havent caught at least one walleye or sauger though...

Got down to the river in the pouring rain this morning what a light show, the two guys from church were real troopers go out in that, to me its just another day. Fishing was good except the fish that were bitting were the wrong kind, I hate to say it but I have my first blank in the walleye dept this year frown.gif, sure had one heck of a streak going though. One of the guys with me caught two nice walleyes 16 1/4 and 17, we all caught bass, sunfish, sheephead, rock bass and channel cats, still had a great time, both fish were caught on crawlers 22' Looking forward to fishing in the morning. cool.gif

Walli! IS HUMAN! I was starting to think he was some sort of super-human fishing machine, but he does have off days like the rest of us. Please don't take that the wrong way Walli1, I still look up to your experience and river knowledege. Heck, my "off-days" sometimes last from July to Sept.!

I'll be down there tomorrow am., I'm gonna head out of the public launch in Hastings instead of the Bluffs. That should save me the run around due to construction on 95.Se ya on the water.

Just getting the final things ready to go out in the morning, my son is going out at 3:00 with me, should be on the water by 3:45 at the latest, just love that early morning stuff! yeah today was a sad day, first time this year not catching a walleye, it happens and its hard to swallow but there's always tomorrow, at least I did have walleyes in the box today, so far this year I've had eyes in the boat every time out thats pretty nice cool.gif see you on the water!!

I don't know Walli, I think it still might count when you took two rookies out and someone in your boat boated some eye's. I think it's harder to get rookies to get them than to bring them up yourself. Good luck in the morning.

Thanks Sandmannd! Well this morning my son and I made a memory that will last a life time and he'll have a story of the big fish to tell and show the photo for life! Check this big buffalo head out my 15 year old son got in on 4 pound test fireline,it took over a hour to get it in the boat, sure put a bend in the limit creek rod, rod looks cool bent like that, it was 33" long had a grirth of 24" and weighed a shade over 27 pounds. I'm holding the fish for my son because he didn't want to lift it up. PICT0202.jpg What a fish!! O yeah I kept two nice eyes also, sure had a blast and its something my son and I will always share! cool.gifcool.gif

always!! One great thing about the river is that you can target one species and end up catching many different species. Once my son gets old enough, he'll be coming along with me.

      awesome feedback! thank you so much for the info! Ill get up ther next year, i dont want to keep any i just want to catch some nice eyes and northern.....hell, whatever! ive been in a sleeper 5 times on LOW and we only had one real good trip. upper red lake once in a sleeper caught 3 eyes in 3 days. i dont mind if i catch one or two fish, its all about the experience for me on the big water. but the girlfriend is a hard one to convince at times for a return trip if the fishing is slow. were headed to fairbault this weekend, i hope we get into something. thanks again guys! ill post a report on our trip. good luck on the ice!

      Well who else is going after long beards this spring? I was drawn for season B again no surprise. There were surplus tags left as there were last couple years.  Really like the new approach to not having to apply for the later seasons spreads the hunters out and gives guys like me the opportunity to get after them early   Been out doing some scouting and been seeing some big wintering flocks one I was glassing other day had over 60 birds in it! They have really been working over the picked corn lately.  Oh cant wait to hear the first gobble of the year

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.
    • PRO-V
      Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.
