      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.

winona/houston county hunting and the flood

Recommended Posts

USPENAMC

First let me say that my families prayers are with those people who suffered loss in minnesota by the floods!

I wanted to ask how the floods have made you change your tactics/hunting grounds/plans for this upcoming season?

One such thing was that the WHITEWATER area was closed indefinetely due to the flooding. Did anyone hunt this area?

Will any of you be heading north instead of south for archery season?

Do you think this floods helped or hurt the deer population?

My group has hunted Houston for the last 13 years. I have only been the last 3 but we have a lot of ties down there. Everyone was safe, but they have a lot of hurdles to overcome in the next couple months. One group of land owners have property on top of one of the hills, the problem is that the switchback road up to the top is now piled up at the bottom of the hill. They have to drive down the hill on 4 wheelers and horses to get food and supplies. Some have access to another road that takes them 45 minutes out of the way.

My cousin went down to help out this weekend and he said that all the Treestands need to be rechecked because some of the trees are not sturdy due to wash outs and mud slides. He is hunting a ground blind until things go back to normal. There is plenty of debris to make a ground blind out of tree limbs and branches. He also said that some of the deer travel routes have changed due to some slides and new revines that have been created.

Some of the land owners laughingly admit that as hunting goes, they are happy because most people will not have access (private roads only) to a lot of the land. And as sad as this next statement is, but it's true. They also said there will be far less poaching due to limited escape routes.

i personally dont hunt those areas but was wondering about how it would affect the people who do. deer will probably be more centralized in some areas but hunters will need to find a way to GET IN AND OUT of those areas. Those that dare do that might find a nice specimen

      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.

      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.
