      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.

Alright guys I know all competing in the Bass tournament are fired up and time is money, but... I fished in several tournaments also. Yesterday we fished the east end with great success other than nearly being ran over in my friends boat on 2 seperate occassions. Both times we were heading through the Brule in the neck down areas which offer very limited wiggle room. These boats never broke speed coming directly at us at an estimated 60 mph. Thats ridiculous! Obviously sporting your flashy shirts with your hats on backwards probably had too tight of a squeeze on your little brains. PLEASE NOTE! No Fish is worth risking my life for! I could care less if your willing to trade your own for a smallie! Also make no mistake about the fact that boat collisions do happen and yes they are ugly! On the otherhand I did run into another tournament fisherman whom harnessed some common sense and courtesy on the lake. So trying not to generalize, but come on! If your familiar with the last red/Green exiting the brule into the East end this is where we were nearly erased (TWICE). We hugged the inside heading east not having any idea where the rocket was heading as he screamed right at us. As we completely let of the throttle he flew past us as if we were in the wrong! Note to this gentleman I surely hope you realize your not that much of a "big shot", and just because I wasn't in my "big boat" doesn't give you the right to run me over with your overpriced sparkly rocket powered smallmouth chaser. Hope the Lake police can catch up with you! Most of all hope you don't kill anyone with your senseless behavior. Also note to tournament directors please advise participants that this is not accepted practice. Killing someone will surely hinder the growth of this tournament! Try stay alive out there!

      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!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
