      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has 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. Initially 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 see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then 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.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

I would stay right in Sunset Bay and Doe Island reef area. I would concentrate on the these area’s this time of year. With the cooler temps in forecast, I would tend to drift over structure in no more than 15 feet of water. The bait could be tricky! Obviously, musky’s have there own thing ( bright flashing large plugs or large fake minnows and casting). The walleyes act to different baits this time of year. I learned in early September from my grand father about frogs. This seemed to work in shallow areas in late summer to early fall. I have not tried this for many years, but could work. If not, the leach or crawler always gets a walleye in the boat.

If shallow is not working, there is always Shaws reef or out off of Big Point reef. If that is not working, try three mile or structure in between.

Mark fish, then fish!

When you get up there, ask local bait store about whats up. Do not ask the cashier, ask the guy or girl filling your bait bucket. They might tip you off on rainbows or fat heads. Who knows?

The main thing is have fun!

If you see Capitan Hook in his launch, ask him were they are biting grin.gif

Good Luck!
