      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.

TRF Lions Fishing Derby Aug 18th...

So who's fishing it? I'm geared up to fish it again this year, it's only the second year, but last year was fun with lots of entries so hopefuly this year will be just as good or better.

I'm almost positive I'll get skunked this year...It's just a feeling I have, but I guess I felt the same last year too and got a 3rd and 5th place prize in the "other and Northern" catagories, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Anyways, I hope to see some of you there.

Well, I didn't get skunked...I caught a butt-load of fish, just nothing big enough to make the board. frown.gif It was a great event once again and was a beautiful day to be on the water. Walleye and Northern had some nice weights, 7lbs+ Eye and a 15lb+ Pike took 1st in those divisions, but the "other" division was on the small side, just under 7lbs took 1st, wow...Water is low, but fishing was good.

Talk to ya'll later.

Yah, I don't know Greg, but I guess he knows this river like no one else...the exact words I heard were "It'll be tough to beat him"! 2-1st places, not bad!! I think I'm just gonna follow him around next year! grin.gif LOL

It just goes to show, if you spend enough time on a body of water, you can really get to know it well. I'm sure if I fished the river every weekend, I would learn alot in a year and become a very good local fisherman too.

Lip RIPPER!

I've been fishing with Greg since I was a kid and he is as good as it gets when it comes to the river.

I haven't fished the river since they redid the dam area and took out that island. I heard the current is pretty strong below the dam now.

      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.

      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...

      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!!!
