      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.

I'll be west of cyrus a little ways. Some public land that's really good, and I know a farmer that has CRP bordered on 3 sides by public land and corn on the 4th side. Guess where I'll be hunting...........

Kind of down and out right now. Two hours ago I took my lab out for a bike ride and a neighbor's dog t-boned him while in a full run and bit him in the abdomen (over a two inch tear)...looks like I shot him with a broadhead. Just trying to get a good workout in before opener and now we have to wait til it heals. The wife and I stapled him shut for the night and will get him stitched good tomorrow

Muzzy Sorry to hear that. I know the feeling thought. A few years ago, my pup got hit by a drunk driver at 5 a.m. opener morning. The driver swerved into the yard and hit the dog and drove off. It's a good thing the cops found him before I did......

Not a cool story to hear. I hope they hit the drunk driver hard with fines not that it would help your loss at all.

I'll hopefully get out in a couple of weeks...going to Marshall/Ruthton area...hope there are some birds left!

Good luck to all

Muzzy

I'll be about 100 yards outside of my back door.

Prairie living has at least one perk.

Mr. B

Just to give all you guys heading towards Willmar a heads up. While driving to and from work (Glenwood to Willmar) I have not been seeing any birds. Because I am so friendly I thought I would pass this along and give you guys time to change your plans. I would hate to think of you guys driving all this way just to get a good walk.

Of course if you do head this way and see a few guys hunting over black labs wave it might just be me.

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff

      Anoka county union says it is opening in the sports authority building in Coon Rapids. Cant Wait!

      I've found it interesting that the past couple years we haven't seen quite the numbers of rustys on our beach in the summer. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There were a lot of cabbage beds on the North side of Pine Is. and on the far East end of Big Bay. Gone now! Cliff
    • Rick
      I never guarantee safety. Others in similar position are out on Shields. I would assume German is the same. I would do it just not telling you to do it.

      I have a skid house on Mille Lacs, the yellow perch has is no joke, camera all day long perfect sized perch for them to eat. The walleye numbers are strong, regardless what dnr says. The tough bite this year does kind of stink, but it's good for the lake. Every fish you catch is nice and healthy, and as previously stated usually big. We have been fortunate enough to get a couple slot fish (unicorns) out this year
    • FishinCT
      Just out of curiosity where were the cabbage beds on the east end? Rustys have been infested ever since we started fishing the east side 
    • Jplante
      shiners or suckers

      The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.
