      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.

My story of the 15 pointer I got on Friday night

Recommended Posts

Gforce

I have read stories on here about other peoples bucks now i finally get to right one. I was coming home from college on friday after my class that got done at 3. I had time to think of where i was going to sit with the two hour drive. Something or someone told me i should sit in the stand thats along a ditch and treeline. I got home put on my new mossy oak brush camo gulie suit and got on the stand at 5:30. I saw does right away in the distance feeding and then i saw a fork buck working his way towards me. He came and drank out of the old cattle watering hole in front of me and then went down into the ditch another fork buck came down a deer trail and waded around in the ditch and drank some water then came out of the ditch and slowly wondered away. The other fork buck came back and came out of the ditch and walked to the edge of the field. Something had his attention and got him jumpy. He was looking towards the road so i thought it was a vehicle but i didnt hear one coming. I then heard bucks play fighting or sparring. I thought it was weird. I couldnt see that way so i thought i was hearing things buck i swear thats what it was because i kept hearing it. Then all of a sudden the fork buck took off running. Something got to him. I then sat there for like half-hour with notin unitl i heard something behind me. My heart starting pumping and then i see a fork buck come out of the tress behind me on a trail. After he came i heard something coming behind him. Then a doe and a fawn popped out. They walked around in the bottom of the ditch and drank some water. I was going to leave the stand early to go to a friends party but the three deer just hung out there for awhile. They finally started to wonder down the ditch and then i was getting ready to go. I took a look around me and i sh$t my pants. I looked to my left and there was a nice 8 pointer coming down the ditch. I started to feel the rush. I pulled back as he came behind my tree and relized he wasnt quite big enough to shoot this early in the season. I was pulled back still and i heard more deer coming. The next buck was a another nice 8 pointer. I didnt have time really to think and then another buck came. It was a smaller 8 pointer. I was still pulled back and then i saw him. The last two bucks were coming. I saw the buck i wanted and i put the pins on him. He was about 17 yards away and i let it fly. The arrow hit him through the front shoulders and went right through. This buck and the last one were both shooters for me and i didnt have long to think because they were walking towards the trees and i picked this guy and stuck with him. I felt a relief after i shot. It felt good. One thing i have learned from life mostly hunting if it feels good it usually is good. The buck ran out of the ditch and across the open crp field towards our corn field. I hope u guys like the story. I will write about the tracking of him when i have more time probly later today. Its a long story too. With the help of my dad and a good friend i did find him. I will try to get a picture on here of him. Hes tall but not wide. Dont get your hopes up for a monster but hes a trophy to me. Very unique rack. im skipping chemistry right now o right this lol hunting is more important anyways right. i will right more later cya

gforce,

I can't wait to hear "the rest of the story"!!!!!! It sounds real exciting and no matter how big it is it will always be a trophy to you and that's all it matter.

Yeah, skip more classes and write up the story!! Just kidding, there is plenty of time to write it up later. Us old farts will just have to wait.

Good job and I bet your arm muscles were singing by the time you got to shoot....sounds like you had the bow pulled back awhile. Another thing that struck me is the fantastic hunt you had. My biggest fear is to shoot a monster buck without a good hunt to it.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
