      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.

Went out for a few hours this afternoon chasing eyes. Not much luck for them but got into some beautiful crappies from 11.5-12.5" as well as some nice sized slimers. All fish caught were released. Water temps were still 60 degrees. Need some cool weather. Some nice fall colors too.

blasin e-mail me please. Its getting to that time of year where the crappies are going to school up over structure off of deeper waters. Still a bit warm but when we get into the lower 50's they will really start to put on the feedbags as will the eyes. Both crappies and eyes will use the same areas of the river this time of year. Most often the crappies will be either suspended or in the thick of the structure. The eyes will be right around there as well but usually not up in the water colomn in these areas.

Blasin were ya above or below boyscout?

We fishd all the way from Garfield to Boyscout. But the crappies were caught below Boyscout. I did mark a bunc of fish in 25 fow water that I pretty sure were eyes but they wouldn' go for us. Didn't get out in the harbor at all.

Load I was just curious about the location and if I was right about it.

Now about that Drew comment. Funny but you know me better than that.

As far as that spot I hit it a few times and it paid off big time to times in a row but the last few times has been real slow. Ya many many snags in there.

I have a new one for ya though. Not far at all from there.

      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...

      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!!!
