      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.

I just may have a few hours free this weekend to test your hand warmers on the rod trick. I bought a few to try it since I HATE fishing with gloves! I drive a 14 foot duck pattern grumman with a Yamaha 30horse. Good luck to all, sundays shaping up to be shorts weather, 46 degrees! grin.gif(well not really shorts per say)

15'-38 up and down steep drops mark lots of fish just weren't active, no I never went past the kinni only went as far as the bluffs park, lots of fish in that area just couldn't get them to bite! Tried 4 different color jigs, several different gulp colors and fatheads on lindys the only walleye came on a gulp minnow and white jig

Dumb question, is the bluffs frozen over? I may go out tommmorow, but would be upset if i get there and I have to break ice.

I would guess that there would be some ice in the launch area. I wouldn't pick that launch with a glass boat. Hopefully somebody with first hand info can chime in...

The bluffs launch is fine its warm enough yet so there's no much icing, helpful tip bring a bucket of sand just encase you need to though in down! Big Jeff and I will be out in the morning plan on fishing from 7-3, see you on the water!

walli1, looks like the buck I've got in my back yard!!! I've got a nice 10 pointer that's sporting 10 inch G2's and 8 inch G3's. There's also 2 trash rack 6 pointers as well walking around. If only. Sandmannd and I were getting ready to go hunting during opening weekend and I was putting my stuff outside, when I'm letting the dog out to do her thing and she freezes up. I've got my gun cased in my hand, and go to see why she froze up, only to see the 10 pointer standing at 20 yards giving me a broadside shot. I was not the happiest person at that time.......

2007 will no doubt go down as one of the top years on the river for the amount of eyes I boated, 2003 for the most C&R by far. This year caught quite a bunch of C&R but only a handful over 24" with the largest being 28 1/2", next year is going to be great all those 12-14" will be legals, can't wait but hey I'm going out in the morning, see you on the water!

      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.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.  
    • IceHawk
      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
