      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.

Wouldn't be able to take the look on the dog's face if I left without her. Still roosters left that need to die.

Wow! I am torn. Shoot roosters or get back on the ice for the third outing of the season? Im not sure if I can make my decision yet if there is ice on the IGL there will be no decision to make but if there isnt it will likely be to roosters in the morning and ice time in the afternoon assuming that we will be able to make it back out. It is important to be very careful of and know whats happening around you on the ice.

Another Cutsom Jigs and Spins afternoon

(The perch is just under 14")

Sarah has some very nice perch. First ice is a GOLDEN time to get them.

I may be stuck on Lime this weekend however. I borrowed a pal my truck for the weekend. Lime is walking distance, like a block.

Hey there perchpounder, I may not be fishing Saturday. I need to wait and see what the weather turns into.

45 mph wind, rain, sleet, and snow doesn't sound all that fun on the lake.

Sounds like a little slice of paradise to me! I'm planning on making my first trip to the IGL area tomorrow morning there are a few reports of fish being caught but i'd rather be the one reporting so i'll be out somewhere. If I don't make it to the lake there are still plenty of roosters around so ill be out and about somewhere no matter what the weather is. Maybe sunday will be better?

Is the rock burried yet? Im not too sure about tomorrow yet heading northward somewhere but can't decide where. Sarah seems a bit far for another exploratory mission. Got a report of a few walleyes coming out of West Graham among others and Talcot is traditionally a good first ice spot for me.

The rock is buried. I'll be pretty much the only guy on Lime Lake tomorrow. It's a total exploratory mission. I gotsa gut feeling the crappies will be hitting. Come on out.

I can't say i've ever caught a crappie in Lime lake. We have in years past catch some nice perch. I may just have to take you up on your offer but not until my co-angler calls me and tells me his game plan.

Nice fish.

Yeah, there are crappies in Lime Lake. I caught some yesterday. You really have to travel around and move to find them. I just got lucky yesterday.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,
