      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.

By the way this board is going, I would say pretty slow.

But! get up and have some fun. Who knows, you could get in on some good fish.

Like they say, a bad day of fishing is still sure better than a good day at work. IMO tongue.gif

went out last night and caught 9 walleyes but the weather was horrible and we only fished from 7 30 to 10 00. The biggest was 26 1/2 and we only got 2 keepers but it was a good time for the most part. Heading back out today hopefully

The Grebe

We were up yesterday and got into the perch, lots of little ones..had to really work for the jumbos, but it was fun doing it. Artificals out fished live bait by alot! We were kinda monitoring the other boats.

The wind was really kicking and it was hard to hold, for us anyways. One time we thought we had really dug in, we had..the anchor got hooked around a huge cable and we had to fight that thing for about a half hour before we were able to get loose....up it would come, then down it would go...finally with cranking and tugging we got it to the surface and got ourselves free...I wasn't about to give up my anchor without a fight!

The anchor deal was the first thing....then we are sitting there fishing, minding our own business and a boat with two young 20 something lads pulls up, anchors into the wind and within 5 minutes with the whole of Mille Lacs lake out there for them, one of the nimrods casts about a 4 pound orange beetle spinner right into our boat!

It wasn't the wind, the wind couldn't have moved that thing!

I had serious thoughts about whipping out my Buck knife and cutting it off....using it for an anchor to help us stay put! I opted to just ignore it for a minute or two, let em sweat...then I just plopped it back over the side...the fella did apologize, but if that thing would have hit me in the head? I would probably be drinking soup through a straw right now! grin.gif

All in all it was fun and I really didn't get angry with that young fella with the bad aim...I was just puttin on...food for thought.

Gotta go up again next week-end, maybe the wind will cooperate a litte better....which reminds me, I best go buy me one of them 400 pound Mille Lacs anchors.

      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.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      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.

      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.

      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.
