      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!!!

September 7, 2007

For Immediate Release

Terry Severson (218) 283-6600


The rainfall received this week over much of northern Minnesota has moderated fire danger for the short term. Rainfall amounts received across Minnesota varied from a trace to almost six inches. Given the rainfall amounts received, Voyageurs National Park has lifted the ban on fires in the park effective at noon on September 7, 2007.

Once again, visitors can have recreational fires (campfires) in designated metal fire rings. Charcoal fueled fires in metal fire rings and grills are also allowed.

Fires in rock rings are not allowed. Rock rings do not contain fires properly and can allow fire to escape.

The park staff thanks everyone for cooperating with the fire ban during the recent extreme fire danger period.


Reduced fire danger allows fire restrictions to be lifted throughout the state (2007-09-07)

The combination of an increased amount of precipitation, and a return to more normal late summer weather patterns and conditions, with shorter days, cooler temperatures and higher humidity, has reduced the potential for fires to start and spread.

Due to these changes, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Superior National Forest, Chippewa National Forest, Bureau of Indian Affairs, National Park Service, and U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced that fire restrictions across Minnesota will be lifted, effective at noon, on Friday, Sept. 7.

"The long awaited change in weather patterns significantly decreased fire potential throughout most of the state to once again to allow campfires, recreational fires, and charcoal fires throughout the State," DNR Fire Management Supervisor, Olin Phillips said. "Although the fire restrictions have been lifted, it is still important to remember to be extra careful when enjoying campfires, burning brush piles or debris in burn barrels; or disposing of ash from charcoal grills or other fire containers."

The Chippewa and the Superior National forests will allow the use of campfires, charcoal, and wood-burning camp stoves in all areas of the national forests, including the blowdown area in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW).

At the same time, the Border Route Trail system will re-open and the entire Kekekabic Trail on the Superior National Forest will re-open for public use. For details, check with one of the forest offices or visit the Superior National Forest Web site at or the Chippewa National Forest Web site at

Burning permits are once again available and will be issued by local fire management agencies.

For more information, contact public information officer, Minnesota Interagency Fire Center, at (218) 327-4558.

      The GPS ideas are great. Garmin Huntview for Minnesota is $79.99 and OnX has 7 day free trial. The plan is to have the property surveyed. I believe Cliff makes a good point, do it right from the start. More time for fishing less time messing around looking for markers and  buying equipment just to possibly end up having the survey done in the end. Thank you for your responses they have been very helpful!

      I decided to skip Mille Lacs today. With the poor fishing reports and even poorer travel options out there, I’m hoping next week might be better. So bring on the sun for the next 7 days!

      Got out to west rush early this morning. No slush issues while I was there, but that could be different by days end. The landing was quickly degrading in just the few hours I was there...landing on east lake is worse. Only caught 5 crappies. Schools were scattered and on the move, and fish weren’t very active. Ice was about 32 inches, which made hole hopping very difficult with an ion auger. Caught a nice sun burn on my face

      Pike good luck!  Grew up fishing down there as a kid. Every so often I go back down there to relive some good memories  When I was 12 yrs old I use to fish down there with a couple old boys at midnight on opening night. Those old boys treated me as there own Kid!  And  I always thanked them for that  they taught me a lot. Caught a pretty good amount of eyes throwing jointed rapalas back then.  Its been a few years since then the old boys are gone fishing in the big sky above. But boy I still see there faces and smiles in my memory when every I stop down there

      Was out on Shoe, Cedar Island, and mud today.    needed an extension on all three.   I would guess there is 36-40" on all of the lakes.   Horseshoe acces is getting beat up.   Cedar island 22 access is better.   Travel is easy on all of the lakes.   Don

      What brand?   Neighbors got a couple of floe sections at an auction last summer.

      I've been wondering for a while about the side scan thing.   I hope it will work for you , and am looking forward to hearing your reports, even from the east end...
