      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.

BLUEBILL,

FLK AND I PLAN ON GOING SATURDAY A.M IN SEARCH OF A FEW DIVERS. ARE THERE RESPECTABLE NUMBERS AROUND YET? I THOUGHTI SEEN A FEW FLOCKS OF RINGS LAST WEEKEND AND FOR SURE 3 REDHEADS THAT FLARED AT THE LAST SECOND. I BET I HAVEN'T HUNTED WATERFOWL IN ABOUT 10 YEARS BUT LOVE TO SHOOT DIVERS OVER OPENWATER. I KNOW HE HAS NEVER DONE IT . AND THAT IS PULLING ME BACK INTO THE SPORT. IT SICKENS ME TO THINK OF WHAT I SOLD ALL MY GEAR FOR AND HOW LONG IT TOOK ME TO BUILD IT UP. NOW I WAN'T TO GET BACK IN AND IT'LL COST ME A FORTUNE TO GET BACK TO WHERE I WAS. I NO LONGER OWN A GUN LARGER THAN 20 GA. SO IT WILL BE CHALLENGING TO SHOOT A 20 OVER DECOYS. PROBALLY GONNA GO GLASS A FEW LAKES AFTER WORK TOMORROW.

bluebill,

thanks for the info, went scouting friday saw a few and set up in the area saturday a.m, seen lots birds, but few would decoy, they would pass 2 or three times before landing in the middle of the lake. First duck was taken at about 8:30, a good hour and a half of constant action just out past the deaks before anything committed.

my party of three ended up with 4 BILLS 2 REDHEADSon saturday (pic in waterfowl photo thread) 1 CAN & a GADWALL on Sunday . I will likley try again this weekend.

may have to take you up on that , the boat I used this weekend was borrowed from a good friend. as foolish as it was, I sold my waterfowl rig about 10 years ago for a high performance bass rig. at a price that almost makes we queezy. Now I think how long it will take me to build it up again. and it's a little discouraging confused.gif

      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.
    • Wanderer
      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!
    • Bigfatbert
      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.
