      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!!!

8/30 report

It was the perfect storm for a slow night, MN river spitting out chocolate, very little water coming over the Ford Dam (most was dry, just the area to the right of the dam had water coming through) and lots of junk in the water.

That said, there was still some action. We got about a dozen white bass, a surprise crankbait crappie (nice one, 3/4 lb 11"), 6-10 smallies but just one eye. Usually this time of year the river is full of 12-14" eyes, but we didnt get any of those, just one 20" fish. Also one sucker type thing that actually bit, it wasnt snagged. No sheepies-very odd.

There were fish busting the surface everywhere and lots of pods of 2-3" shad on the surface. With no current, feeding fish could use the whole river and werent concentrated. So it makes things more difficult and unpredictable.

Still, great night to be out. Few boats, great weather!
