      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.

Bass: Twin/Sylvia, Cedar, Clearwater, Buffalo?, Pulaski has numbers, size ??, smaller lakes you just need to find out.

Walleye: I've had luck on Pulaski, Buffalo, Clearwater. Cedar has them, you just need to find em. Twin/Sylvia has then, they are just deep and hard to find. Check out the lakes the DNR has stocked and give them a try.

Panfish: You just have to find lakes that hold nice ones. All lakes have them but finding the bigger ones is the key.

Clearwater is good for anything, Just make sure you have a good lake map, Lots of shallow spots out there. Good walleye lakes around Annandale would be. Cedar, Slyvia, Pleasant, French, and Granite. You will find Bass on them to. Slyvia if you can find the crappies you will get some nice ones. I got alot of 10"-11" crappies earlier this year on Pleasant(Well the Kids did- I was the Official taker offer and bait my hook guy.)

I'm going out to Cedar this afternoon and evening to try for walleyes I'll let you know how I did.

Lindy rigging, with a 4' snell and Fatheads. Found the fish in 22-27 FOW. I did catch a few decent sunnies. If I knew I was going to catch as many as I did, i would have kept them. Good Luck, let me know how you did, I won't have a chance to get out there this weekend, because I have to work. But I will be out there Tuesday Night.

Side Note: I would check H&H for fatheads. See if they have some bigger ones, Little Jims had crappie minnow size fatheads.

My inlaws have a place on Cedar. Far south end of lake, round house, last place in channel. I fish the lake often and am intreged by the structure and not so much by the recreational pressure. I've had a few real good days for Bass and Pike (not size wise but numbers) Never had alot of success fishing Eyes. When I'm out there I'm in a 14ft blue Alumacraft with a quick 8 horse. grin.gif I'd be up for any help that can be offered on this lake. I'm a married highschool Bio teacher with three young kids (5,3,2) and time out fishing is like gold... Send an e-mail with any helpful suggestions and I can give back info on my successful experiances and spots. smirk.gif

Central public high school. Norwood Young America. I teach Biology to sophamores and Human Anatomy & Physiolgy to Juniors and Seniors.

League Championship is this Sat am. It will be a draw out of a hat and is between Waconia, Waverly, Ann, and Howard. Those were the top four lakes on average from our entire list of 14 lakes. I personally won on Waconia with three bass weighing in at 11 lbs 14 oz. So I'm partial to Wac. Fingers crossed. smirk.gif

What the? Bass-n-spear? I don't think there was anything wrong with my last post at all. I talked about how Einstein and Newton, (both great Minds) were not good spellers and how some people think differently, and how spelling was a poor way to judge intellegence. ANYWAY, Like I said before... Robo, back to Cedar, I fish it often and would like to become more efficient. For the most part I target Bass then Walleyes. I have had success when targeting pike but the size was lacking. Shoot me an e-mail if you think you could help. I'll respond with some of my spots where I've had success if you'd like. I've never been edited before in over 450 posts and I'm quite sure there was no profanity or advertisments..... ? confused.gif

      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.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet
    • tca12
      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.  
    • IceHawk
      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
