      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.

Looks like I might be moving down towards the Faribault/Medford area from the metro. So I might be able to attend more FM Get togethers! Any good lakes in that area, I'm big into bass and tournament fishing though so it will more than likely just increase my drivetime to get north.

Well, if you are big into bass fishing, you won't have to go very far. There are lots of good lakes`with big fish in them near Faribault.

Cedar, Shields, Mazaska are just a few off the top of my head that are very good bass lakes. Cedar is known for good numbers of fish over 5 lbs. There are also many tournament in the southcentral area. There are plenty of guys on this forum that fish some of those tourneys that can get you straightened out.

If you're looking for houses in the area, may I suggest New Prague...

I'm not sure if you've been watching the news in the last couple of months but a developer down here got into the bad mortgage business, built a lot of nice homes and then provided fraudulent mortgages to people that normally couldn't afford those houses. Long story short, there's been a lot of foreclosures. There's roughly 150-200 beautiful 4 bedroom homes that will probably go for around $200,000. They're all currently sitting vacant.

As a legitimate home owner, it makes me sick because my property value just took a big hit. But for someone looking to move to the area, it's a no-brainer!

About 15-20 Minutes from the lakes mentioned above, and about the same from all the south Metro lakes. And about 1/2 hour from Faribault. My wife works there and makes the commute daily.

Thought I'd throw it out there. It would be good to have another FM'er in the neighborhood.

Ya, I love tourney fishing. And may i suggest if anyone is looking to try it fishing as a co-angler in the Silverado series is a blast and a great way to learn. We missed the new z19 Ranger top place by .6 lbs this year. Bummer. One 3 lber and we'd won. Hey, if/when I move we can carpool, haha.

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      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.
