      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.

Went down to Bayport this morning to check on conditions.NOT GOOD....There is not alot of deep snow on the river,but there was alot of slush out there.Most places that dont appear white with snow were spots of open water on Saturday morning.These are gonna be dangerous early ice spots unless they open back up and refreeze.Im not gonna bother going out there for at least one week,probably longer unless I see Lemming tracks going out and coming back.Be sensible out there people,there is gonna be plenty of time for fishing .

Listen to the man, people! Much as I like fish I like you people a whole lot better and there is no reason to die for a fish! Wait till conditions are better to get out there. There are a lot of lakes and rivers around even if you have to drive a bit to get to them. Better a few gallons of gas than a dip in the water this time of year. THINK SAFE! Stay Safe!

I got out on sun. hit Anderson's bay and had about 3 inches of ice. got one pike that went 26 inches and a few perch kept 1, also got a nice sized bass, so at least i got a meal out of it. I walked out to the bayport colony area and found about 1.5 inches of bad ice so i went back in the bay. it should be good on the main river in a few days with this cold snap. grin.gif

Has anyone been down to check around Anderson point recently? Thankfully the weather has been cooperating. I'm hoping to make it down to the river real soon. Might poke around tomorrow morning a bit.

      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!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      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.
