      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.

license ?

Lets say you have hunting ground in zone 1, area 184 and zone 2 area 209. Both of these areas have intensive harvest opportunities. I understand with a regular license I can only shoot a buck in one of the two zones. Does a multi zone and all season license allow me to use the intensive harvest permit in either area?

Also, my sons 1st license this year. Does he have the same restrictions as an adult. someone told me he can harvest 1 deer, regardless of what zone or area but must be in that season. Hopefully you understood all this. I have read the books and cant seem to find info. Thanks. To summerize, I need the abilty to shoot a buck in either zone with the ability to use a intensive harvest permit in either area.

all season license is the multizone with the addition of archery and muzzleloader. all three licenses are statewide, wherever there is an open season. however, intensive harvest permits are valid in any zone only where they may be used. some zones dropped to managed zones, where only two deer can be taken, and others are lottery areas, where you would had to have applied for an anterless permit to shoot a doe. the map at www.dnr.state.mn.us/hunting/deer/index.html shows what all zones are Yes, you can use the multizone and all season to purchase intensive harvest, as the intensive harvest isn't zone specific

The $26 dollar zone license has always been that way and it won't change. If you want to hunt 2 (or more) zones, you'll need either a multi-zone buck or all-season license. If you have killing options in intensive deer areas (looks like you do), I'd suggest the all-season because it comes with 3 tags. The multi-zone is buck only, one tag. Some might argue it's obsolete and should be eliminated smile.gif

So, I'd strongly suggest you not buy a zone 1 license and hunt zone 2 because you'd be hunting without a valid license. That would be a lot more expensive than just buying an all-season license.

I hope that clears it up.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.

      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
