      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.

help locating jig

Hi, a few years back (10+) i purchased some jigging spoons from Luck's bait, they were packaged individually and as i recall they were called "Walleye Willow" spoons, i don't know who made them but last year when i was up there i couldn't find them --- the were shaped like a willow, with glow eye's, in colors of half: pink/gold, green/gold, black/silver, orange/black -- any idea if they are around yet and who might make them? -- thanks

Thanks for the tip AceintheHole. i went out and checked their web site and the closest they have to it would be the Weasle -- which isn't quite it -- the lure i'm looking for has a slight curv/bend to it and it flutters down fairly slowly, considering it's size which is about 1.25 inches (not counting the single hook attached)-- thanks anyways - i'll continue the hunt. i have a few assorted colors left but my buddy was pulling in walleyes last year with one i loaned him (only color i had - go figure) - he now refuses to give it back smile.gif

Log Cabin has em or at least had. Good lure, got a chartruse/green eye and a gold/red eye on two of my poles from last year. Flutters real slow, big ones hit em hard. Makes a great search lure as well. It lures em in then, then take ur lil jig n minnow on your other rig,- BAM BAM BAM,-tick - fishon!

NOt to be confused with the Sutton-willow spoon, the "Hoggies Walleye Willospoon" has a single mustad hook, along with a swivel, and is much lighter. Manufactured by Bait Rigs Tackle co in Madison WI, Their web adress is baitrigs daught com.

They are a great lure!!! i've used them all over and they work -- The fact that they have a slow presentation/fall rate is what triggers those fish -- they work wonders on a dead stick - slowly lift and let it flutter down --- i may have found them on the web at JR Lures -- thanks for all the help

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      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.

      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.
