      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.

Big Guy Outdoor Stuff

Question

Scott M

When you go out fishing or hunting, it's almost like the sport calls to Big Guys, mountain men.

I'm 6'4" and wear a size 16 boot.

I am wondering, where do other big guys find their camo, boots, apparrel? I can usually find stuff in catalogs and online, obviously, but is there a place to go to find it halfway cheap where I can try it on and get it in person? I hate when stuff is on clearance and the only stuff around is small, medium, and large, with shoe sizes that only run to 10-11 tops. Anybody else have this problem? And has anyone found a good place?

Thanks.

I have seen alot of clearence camo, and orange at fleetfarm in lakeville, 3x,4x and they have several racks of them after slug season is over. Its worth a try, and I have gotten stuff that was tagged at $250 for $20

Im 6'6" and 270# I also where a 16 Ice King. I can usually find stuff to fit at Gander or Cabelas and at the right time of year save some cash but if you want something and cant wait for a sale us big guys have to pay to play.

I am in the same boat. I am 6'7 and pushing 350+ with a size 15 shoe and it is a bear to find things. Like NL said you have to pay to play.

I'm 6'7" and well over 270 (but working on going the other way with it) smy problem is that I have problems with my feet so I need to try everything on, either 14's or 15's. I have no problem paying full price if I need it (at least that is what I tell the bride grin.gif) and it goes on my feet. There are not many stores with deals, The mall of america has the nordstrom rack store which I find good deals on regular shoes, but for hunting and hiking, I usually end up using store pts. (cabelas and Bass pro) or some kind of coupon. Cabelas once in a while gets a big haul of big kid shoes, but not as much as they used to. as far as hunting clothes go, I am to the point now of just getting bibs for pants and knowing that they will be highwater no matter what. ah the price for not being average smirk.gif

Yeah, if anybody reads this and has big feet, I felt like a woman shoe-shopping at NordStrom Rack. I found boat shoes, leather dress shoes in all brown and black, wingtips, hush puppies, slippers, Doc Martens, new Basketball shoes...They had everything I ever wanted half price in size 16, and went up to like 21.

How about a brand of good hip boots that a fellow with big calfs and high arches can get into and where are they at?

Thanks

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .

      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      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,
