      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.

All that is on my mind the past few weeks has been rifle opener. This next week is going to go by way too slow for this guy. I am already checked out of work and I need to kill another 4.5 workdays. Anyone else in the same boat? Good luck to everyone on being able to focus on work this next week. Wishing everyone a safe and successful season.

I'm definitely in the same boat. Mentally, I've already checked out of work. My boss doesn't want to give me next weekend off, but I finally persuaded him by telling him that The Future Hunter is due right around next weekend and wanted to hang around the house for when he gets here. The bossman couldn't argue with that so he gave me the time off. Mentally, I'm going crazy. Not good for those around me that don't have the addiction.

No I only have 3+ days, I took Thursday off too. Leaving for Ripley in about an hour. Went home to get a couple things I forgot at lunch time & saw a nice buck cruising about 12:30. Hopefully that's a good omen for the next couple of weeks with bow & gun.

ya know kingfisher, I have brothers in Woodbury, I live in Oakdale. And when I'm driving back to my house down Ideal late at night, between 10th and 15th, there's always a few deer in the ditch. They're moving all over Oakdale right now, it's really getting me revved up.

I can't leave until sat. afternoon. I will miss opener morning and my brother will probably sit in my stand and get a deer. On top of that, my rifle isn't back from the manufacturer yet. It had to be sent in for warranty work and of course, the store can't tell me when it will be back.

Boo hoo.

How do you think I feel living here? It's crazy. I have a 160 acre park behind my house and there's deer running around back there. It's really tempting some mornings to open up the sliding glass door and fill a doe tag with the bow. If only..........

Well Boys, the week is upon us. I have only been at work for a half hour, and my mind is already checked out. It is going to be a long week. The weekend forcast looks like it will be a little warmer than ideal. Hopefully the further north I head, the temps will be affected. I am hoping for at least frosty morning hunts.

      I've had very good luck with them also. Always pick some up before heading out on the lake.

      Was thinking about heading up the shore for some open water fishing. Was just wondering if their is alot of ice floating around and if not wat kind of wind would make it difficult to fish from shore? Thanks

      Please send photo's, thank you. gkaeter@charter.net

      There is a bunch of walleyes in Mille lacs and for the first time in a long time there is  bait fish for them to eat. Mille lacs is a son of a gun to fish if there is a bunch of bait for walleyes to eat. It’s still one the best walleye fisheries in the world.

      Wait until open water season.  It was ranked #1 in the country for bass for a reason.  Its also ranked #6 in the nation for muskies too if you have enough patience to target them. A recent review of Mille Lacs was conducted by an independent Biologist from Lake Erie and found that what the DNR has done with that lake has been fair, accurate, and appropriate in terms of regulation/harvest/restrictions.  Course, some business owners might say otherwise but the science and data has been found to be true.

      I did not draw an early season permit.  I may be able to snag a surplus season B, otherwise it will be a later season for me this spring.  The birds are getting SMART.  They have refused to listen to any calls and they are decoy shy so I haven't been using calls or decoys for a while now.  Rather, I just sit there and wait on a travel route and hope they walk within range (sort of like deer hunting I guess).  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Scouting is obviously important.  What has also really helped is the use of Winchester Longbeard XR ammo.  I have harvested turkeys out to 60 yards with it in recent years.

      Found out we will have up to 17 guns up for grabs. Plus all the of other prizes. That does not include the 3 guns in the 3 gun raffle. The 3 gun raffle tickets must be purchased before the banquet, so let me know if you need some they are 5 bucks each.

      I will be at it with archery gear. It took some time to get the first one with the crossbow but the last two years I stuck a turkey. Watch for the turkey contest here as it is fun times. I can’t wait to see all the photos of turkeys soon.

      I wonder if you would still need both on you if you have the lifetime licence 
    • Hoyt4
      It's go time, i pretty much have all my gear ready for end of March for NE. Our first hunt is archery only then I get to come home and get even with the pipe bomb. Good luck Wanderer once you get that first they just start to drop after that. Bow or shotgun they are a blast. Bisonguy, Scout scout scout. The more you know what the birds are doing and want to do will help. Being a better woodsman and knowing your land and what the birds are doing will put more birds in the dirt then great calling. Patience is another huge part of turkey hunting. I am 1st to want to start running and gunning and give up on a bird i've been working but over the years have got a lot better and just need to give some setups a chance before moving. Good luck be safe.
