      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.

Recommended Posts

JustinG

Well, there is a full moon tonight and it is so bright outside that I should be sitting out in the boat right now slamming some Walleyes! Anybody else have the same idea and actually get out fishing? The heck with work-I am playing hookie and going out tomorrow (Friday) to set some steel to Walleye lips! grin.gif Will post the outcome tomorrow night.

Dude! Hookey? I'm telling the board members! Kidding, of course, and as hard as I know you work to preserve and protect that golf course, I doubt anyone would have a bad word to say if you played hookey for a day. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

This time of year, doubt anyone will miss you on the course. I got too many things to be shooting to worry about fishing for at least 3 more weeks.

Well, Fishing was slow! A front came in about 4:00pm and blew me right off the lake! One snakey northern was all I could muster! Well, maybe tomorrow!

Got up early this morning and was it COLD! My rod tip and line was freezing up like I was ice fishing! Fishing was slow again...one walleye and one northern...and no other bites! I think the lake turnover is having alot to do with lousey fishing right now. Lots of junk it the water and real muddy looking. Fished all depths and all kinds of structure and was marking alot of fish on the locator, but it was deadsville. Anybody have any luck this weekend?

went out to island lake tonight and caught 4 small northerns...no walleyes though. What is normally a good depth to try in late fall? I have just been fishing with big suckers on jigs out of the good old stealth 2000 paddling around wink.gif... Does anyone have any advice for spots somewhat close to the northeast public landing or other ones. Today it was a little to windy to explore to far..had waves crashing over the front of my little boat. hopefully they start biting more soon.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      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.
