      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.

Schmidt baiting update

Recommended Posts

fishhawk1750

Well it has taken sometime to confirm, but it is true that the Schmidts continue to prove what kind of sportsman they truely are!! Conservation officers witnessed the killing of a nice 8 point buck over a pile of corn. They then confronted and and confiscated the deer. At one of the homes they found several more deer that were presumed to be taken by illegal methods.

Nobody else hunts the area so the deer are not pressured. Sit in your stand and wait, just like the kids in our party do! Put your time in and shoot deer legally-on your property and by fair chase. Take the time to set up good stands and clear shooting lanes so you don't have to shoot on to someone elses property!!

Sorry for the long message, but this stuff has been going on for a long time. Whether it is trespassing or baiting it is wrong and hope they take away there hunting rights for a while!!

Good post Fishhawk! I couldn't agree more!

It is extremely frustrating to learn that neighboring hunters are baiting the deer, and then illegally shooting them! It is not only illegal, but also immoral in the fact that they are concentrating the deer's movement into their own property while hunters on neighboring lands see fewer deer.

Very lazy and selfish if you ask me!

Eagle Eyes, I think if you knew these gentlemen you'd have a different opinion. I don't care who it is as long as they got caught which it sounds like they did. Also this isn't just a fishing reports page for Buffalo/Annandale/Big Lake.

Facts? How about calling Rick Reller the area CO. You dont't care how people take them, just that they are off the road? Very intelligent way of replying. Personally I would like my kids to follow the law, so I live that way everyday.

EagleEyes -

First off the facts are straight.

Second, it is not whining to voice frustration over people illegally baiting and shooting deer. It's a bad problem, and something that should be talked about on forums like this.

Third and foremost, if you could care less about the subject then why are you bothering to reply to it? Why don't you just read the fishing reports thread and be happy with that?

I heard from reliable sources that last winter they got busted and ticketed for having over 100 crappies in one day!

They even give rednecks a bad name!!

My family has been a neighbor of the Schmidts for many years, I am happy to hear that they have got what they diserved. We all love to enjoy the outdoors and its a shame when somone takes it for granted or thinks they are above the law.

Hey Mgreseth, are you Matt or Mark? I went to high school with Matt. Do you get out and do any bowhunting by chance? The reason I ask is that I saw a very nice buck not too far from your parents place last weekend. The Schmidts must not have got to this one...

      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.

      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!!!
