      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.

Okay guys, I just got done talking with The Captain following "The Talk" With the CO we had an issue with. Capt. said that after talking with us, he wasn't 100% sure that we were innocent until interviewing a few others after us. He said that the people that called us in just said that they saw someone with a muzzleloader and shotgun shoot a deer and leave it and used our vehicle as the vehicle that they came it. The people that actually did it were driving the same type of vehicle, but w/o a trailer. She also said that things were handled differently with me being a FAS instructor. She said that he would've grilled us harder had I not brought that up. She also said that she agreed that he did grill us pretty hard even after seeing the guns and making sure that all rounds were accounted for. She said that the CO said that Sandmannd's vest "only covered his chest." Whatever. Sandmannd has since gotten a vest that covers way more of his upper body so now no one can complain.

I called her yesterday just to follow up with what KF had said. I have to say she was extremely nice to me. She told me all of what KF had said. Sounds like there were two goofs out there in the same type of rig with no trailer and differant color. Couple of guys came out of the woods that he questioned and verified we didn't shoot that day. Thanks to them, whoever they are. Had a nice conversation with her and she told me of a place to try out there if I can make it out because she said it would be nice for me to get my first deer. That was real nice of her, but I won't be able to make it out so I'll have to try next year. She also said the CO was a concerned that we were that upset and asked her if he could call us. She told him probably not a good idea because of how PO'd we were about it. I told her that I have nothing but respect for law enforcement and what they do. I reiterated that I have no problem with being questioned for what he was told we had done. Just would have been nice to have been nicer when he was done. Once she said he wasn't convinced when he left us it made more sense to me. I'm not saying he couldn't have handled it differently, but it's nice to hear their perspective. I told her that she could tell him I hold no ill will towards it and understand the circumstances were out of the norm. I also told her if he wanted I would welcome his call and he saw me in the furture or needed me for anything in the future that I'm fine with him.

All in all, just chaulk it up to an experiance that probably won't ever see again.

Cool! I am glad that you both had a chance to follow up with the right channels. I know what you endured was out of the norm but I commend you for knowing the law, not hiding anything and even, when needed correcting the CO. It sounds like someone else may have gotten off a bit easily. Again, I commend you both for doing the right thing. Good work boys!

In all honesty, all I really wanted was for him to realize that he might have stepped over the line. With him wanting to call us and apologize, I think he realized that.

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.
