      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.

Was out on Tetonka all morning today. Not alot of action. Most fish caught on X-Raps, Perch color, on the weed lines.

Water temps at 65. Need it to get about 10 degrees cooler.

We picked up two eyes on Tetonka. Perch color. 7-10FOW. The fish were spread all over. Cought one eye on the bar on the east end of the lake and the other from the bar on the west end of the lake. The only pattern was that the fish were in the weed stubble and lying low and not willing to strike. I think if we would have switched to a bobber rig over the stubble we could have cought more but we had to check on the Bass.

Largest fish was a 27" northern, 2 eyes, some Lgm Bass, and some White Bass. The fish that were willing to bite were spread all over the lake.

Exactly Muddog. I was all over the lake this am, and just where you mentioned, I did the best. Also, in front of DNR, where the water is coming out of the pipes.

Welcome to FM!

Tetonka had a solid 'eye bite on Saturday for my boat but the quality was down from what it had been. We had ~15 fish between 13 - 14" and then a handful of others that were in that 15 - 16" range. On the contrary to what has already been mentioned, we found all our fish in ~500' section of shoreline in cover that was still standing in 4' of water. Pitching crank baits with white bellies to this area stuck all the fish with the exception of a couple that came draggin' jigs and minnows.

Thinking of going to Tetonka Sat morning. Have not fished it but once. I was wondering if anyone could give some suggestion to where the eyes and or crappies are biting on the lake. last time I was out caught a few crappies in front of the public beach on the east end. I also fished the sunken island across from best point resort. any suggestions or help would be great.

Not bad at all but I suggest looking for what's available. The remaining cover is where a majority of the fish will be that are willing to bite.

Was on Madison last night from about 5:45p.m. to 9:45p.m. and all to show was 3 small crappies. Tried jig & minnow, tried trolling crank baits, tried shallow, tried deep, not a single Walleye. Talked to another fisherman and all he caught was 2 bullheads. Well my open water fishing is done for the year. Good luck to all you fall fisherman/fisherwomen for the rest of the year. I will be chasing ducks, geese, and deer from now till freeze up!

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
