      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.

How is this stuff? I know WalleyeDan will have good things to say, but since he sells it I would like to hear from a consumer, and Dan you too! Is it warm? How is it to fish in as far as durability and comfort? How does it compare to Ice Armor? Thanks in advance for the feedback!!

I got mine last year and am very happy I did. Very warm with minimal base layer, really light and comfortable. One of the best purchases I have made in a long time, you won't be dissappointed!

I have it, and got it from Dan. All I can say without sounding like a broken record is that it is GREAT! Thinner than I thought, warmer than I thought, usable all year round except the hot part of summer, and very comfy. Well worth the price tag. If you hunt, get the camo. I got red and I like it, but they didn't have camo when I got mine.

Do a search for my name or just Arctic Armor and you will find lots of people who are simply customers who are very pleased. I haven't heard anything bad so far about it, maybe a few with zipper issues, but they got worked out. My zipper is fine. I only wish the leg szippers went a bit higher than they do, which is the standard height.

You won't be sorry. I even bundle my Dad up in mine in the spring fishign trip and he stays toasty for an old "freeze-baby" in his older age. Heck I was wearing mine fishing right into June, but it also stays warm in -10 and beyond.

Enough of a soapbox, but I love the stuff, more now so than when I bought it last year.

Has anyone had a bad experience? I have not heard of one yet. Looks like I am going to have to pay Mr. Dan a visit. Where is your new shop at WalleyeDan??

Otis,

We are located just west of the county road 77 and highway 371 intersection in Nisswa. If you are heading towards Grand View Lodge our shop is on your right hand side before you hit the long stretch of woods, can't really miss it. Call me before you stop, we have been on the fly.

      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...

      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!!!
