      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.

My week on the lake 11/2-11/8 was a great week

Ok guys here how it went on my yearly trip up in the fall for night trolling. First night out did really well on jointed raps in the perch color along with firetiger not fast but man some nice fish caught 12 but was out all night long biggest was 29. 11/2 did about the same area as the night befor weeds inside outside over the middle of them and wasnt going so good till about 11pm only had 2 fish up till then all the sudden not sure what caused it but in the next 2 and a half hours 21 fish between 2 of us again all big fish with the biggest at 28 same 2 colors as the night befor. Sunday and monday night we didnt make it out the ladys wanted to gamble and have some fun so of course we went and the wind was to much to handle for me. The rest of my time on the pond was great caught fish every night some big some small and even a few northern and muskies throwin in the mix.We only fished the west side and up north to around red door but most of are time was out in front of the casino since we were staying there.Like mentioned befor all most every fish we caught was on jointed raps in the 2 colors mentioned but had luck on others but not near as much. Out of the whole trip biggest walleye was a fat 32inch yes i said 32inch 10.2 eye wich i will get that picture up as soon as i can figure how to do it. No sorry wasnt me who caught it was my buddy and yes folks he kept it took it in and is havin it mounted great looking fish.So yes there are fish to be caught but i will say this if you go out there you best have warm clothes and some good boots or be cold in less the 2 hours and headin in. Was a great trip and ill see you on the ice this winter. Oh by the way we went to the Neil Young concert on the way back thursday night and to tell you the truth he sucked big time he would be better off not touring no more .

Awesome report! Sounds like matching the hatch was getting it done. The stick baits have been off for us the last week. Cograts on that 32 inch monster.

Rodmaker we used mainly #7 #5 and #4 shallow raps jointed are average speed wich seem to be the ticket this trip was from 0.7 - 1.3 anything faster or slower didnt seem to work at all. We did get some nice fish over the time we fished wich was mostly from about 8pm - 3or4 in the morning could say we are die hards LOL. Any ways great trip was had by us and the ladys.

Where is he going to get the fish mounted. Matt up at Artistic Anglers does skin mounts as well. As far as I'm concerned, he's the best.

      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.

      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      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!!!
