      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.

Coach

I am looking for a butcher shop for my deer in the south metro. I would like it to be within 25 miles of Eagan. Has anyone have any suggestions from the past seasons? Thanks for the help.

shouldnt be that far of a drive for you, bu Stasny's in St. Paul does an amazing job at butchering deer. Used to bring all of our deer there before i learned how to do it and got equipment.

He's not open yet, but Duff's Meats in Hastings will do it. I live right next to his brother in law. They have some of the best deer sticks I have ever had. Awesome guy to bring your deer to.

He's moving into a new building, so I am not sure he'll be ready, but I sure hope he is... I'll drive by there today to see how its coming and report back.

I saw that on the sign....Did he buy out the Block or what happened. Whatever the case may be glad to see it, Duffs always had the best meat.

Much depends if you need specialty cuts, sauasages, sticks, etc., but I'd strongly recommend Greg's Meats just south of Hampton, MN, north of Cannon Falls. It's probably right at about 25 miles, but they're right off of Hwy 52, which is a fast, straight-shot.

They're prices are much more reasonable than alot of the metro shops, and their sausage recipes are typically national champs each year. They'll work with you on making all-venison summer sausage if you talk to the owner, and run a clean-shop.

If you call them up, they'll probably be able to fax or snail-mail you a copy of their 2007 Deer Processing price sheet.

Well-worth the drive. We've got quite a few local places to choose from, and Greg's gets our business every year.

Yep...

Looking forward to seeing Duffs back up and running. He had a huge following when he was still open on the south edge of town.

My mouth is watering just thinking about it...

I also highly recommend Greg's Meats. If you do a search online for "greg's meats" he comes up near the top(at least for me). Great service, freindly, competitive pricing. Numerous award winning recipes.

Husnik's on old Concord in SSP does a good job and is reasonable.

He has been in business for over 25 years. It is family owned and just about completely family run. Almost everyone that works there is related. Just recently, He has added onto the shop, more freezer and storage, so he can handle a lot.

Greg is open M-F 8-5:30, Sat 8-3, and closed on Sundays.

      I will be going out for the night bite on green this week. I need to find some more fish as the wife wants a fresh fish dinner.

      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
    • JBMasterAngler
      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.
