      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.

Hey you slackers!!!!! Who is out there like me today??? I am a worthless pile at work, not productive, eye turned to the sky and NOAA's website, not to mention forums like this. I am pretty excited to go after some ducks. I can't wait to see you "city boys" heading through town tomorrow with your rigs loaded with boats, dogs and decoys.

What a great time of year it is. Not to mention I have seen good numbers of woodies, mallards, honkers and mergansers on the lakes.

Only in 10th grade!?!?!?! Hell, I skipped more school that year that year and slept in that, well...... Lets just say I missed alot of school that year! grin.gif Whats stopping you from not going? All through school I always took off the first monday of duck season and the first snow and the first morning with a 20 degree low! I just told mom I'm going and you better call in and say I'll be a little late this morning! Even if she didn't like it, just go,its the only way to brake her in! Then once you know how to do that braking in the wife becomes easier!!!!! wink.gif

So with that said, I would skip on monday if I were you! good luck every body!

Sitting here reading this is not helping!

I'm headed to Canada tomorrow morning for 11 days of field waterfowl bliss. I'm not even sitting. I'm just kind of hovering over my keyboard waiting for 3 to get home and load the truck.

I'll send a report when I get back.

Good luck everyone.

I'm liking the weather.

" A 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 1pm. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 76. Breezy, with a south southeast wind between 16 and 22 mph, with gusts as high as 31 mph."

My buddy is bringing an Air Lucky duck, this should be a perfect chance to give it a try. I wish the winds were from the north where we are hunting, but oh well, can't have everything.

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall

      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.
