      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.

Anybody chase muskies out here after turn-over? I have been out earlier in the season here without much luck. Do they go deeper or hang out near remaining weeds?

I was out Saturday AM. Had 1 follow 40"+ on a jackpot. Had one 40"+ chase a 4"texas rigged senko up from about 10' while Bass fishing and had a tube bit off in about 3' near a dock. Again a good fish. Water temps were 52-54.

I have been duck hunting on willow point and see muskie fins every once in awhile pass through the decoys. I am waiting for them to take one down someday lol.

Matty, You can hunt the old township boundries but there are very limited spots and sometimes the neighbors get a bit pouty. Nice to hear from you, the goose you gave me was awsome. I will have a bit of venison for the lake gatherings this winter. I haven't made it to Mille lacs this fall or I would have called you. I will be out of town tomorrow night through Sunday evening deer hunting in Wisconson. There are about three to four hundred geese that where out in front of the cabin this past weekend over there! I also saw a few mallards and woodies, some goldeneyes and such. Talk to you later, have a great thanksgiving!

Oh yea you can hunt! 1st lake you can hunt the reeds out off the big mansion on the north end. It is 500 feet from the houses so it is legal.

Willow Point is huntable that is where I usually hunt. We had a good hunting out there this year. I was out there every weekend pretty much. Lots of divers. I even shot a really nice drake mallard that is getting mounted.

Third lake you can hunt the cattail point on the north end as well.

The cops have been called buy neighbors to people hunting willow point but the cops cannot do anything. It was even in the paper. They are following all rules and it is still legal to hunt it. I wish people would understand that.

Better hope I don't beat you to the spot first next season. I live just a couple blocks down. I am like a thief in the night getting out there.

BTW willow might not be huntable next season as the new resteraunt is a little closer. I don't know how they would measure it but I thought about stepping it out while out ice fishing with the GPS.

      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 .
    • Slobslayer99
      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,
