      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has 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. Initially 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 see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then 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.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

headwaters on main street in ortonville has ok burgers it all depends on whos working

milbank as the lantern inn i am not sure on the food it has been a while since i have been there.also there is a pretty new sports bar just as you come into town on hwy12. the 2 times i ate there the food was good only ate burgers

if you want to drive a little ways on the sd side of the lake there are 2 supper clubs.shady beach and sodak.sodak is the bettter of the 2 by far and my favorite friday night all you can eat shrimp and on sundays all you can eat ribs.not a big salad bar but the portions are huge.the matador has gone down hill in the last couple of years.

you could always drive to odessa club 7&75 always seems to have good food.but you know how it is you can always get a bad meal every now and agian no matter where you go. good luck

Milbank has decent places. Check out RJ's BBQ in Milbank, it's a neat place and the food is to die for. I know people that drive over an hour on a weekly basis to get some of their good BBQ. Get there early, when the food is gone, they don't make any more for that night!! It's north of Milbank about a mile on Hwy 15.

Shennanigan's opened up this past year and is a great spot to watch sports in a comfortable setting.

The lantern has good food, but is overrated. I would recommend something on the lake as well, the supper clubs are always a good bet.

      I have been using my X67c on the ice this year and encountered a small problem. Occasionally, it will have a hard time differentiating between bottom and the surface ice echos. I have tried everything I can think of and can't seem to filter it. If I switch to manual depth range I can see where bottom is but the sonar displays that it is only about 3' deep. Not a serious problem but annoying. Tried varying sensitivity, adjusting interference filter, adjusting surface clutter filter with no success. Any ideas?

      That was an aggressive trip. Did you actually find time for fishing?

      I haven't fished up there for a couple of years but the first time i fished it was about fifteen years ago and we were on moccasin. We did pretty well caught lots of sunfish but size was nothing special. Crappies were decent with a couple large ones. Since then i have gone back maybe three times and caught more large mouth bass than anything.

      Makes sense. I live in northern Minnesota so most of our lakes don't seem to require much stocking other than old mine pits. I'm not familiar with the southern half.

      I picked up new rain gear last year.  I took a layering approach and went with Gill. I love the stuff and can more comfortably wear it in warmer climates.   jacket - bibs - bib& insul bib -
