      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.

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

OK - We've just got blasted with a bunch of snow and it looks as though we may finally have a good old fashioned MN winter.

Maybe you are looking for a brief escape? My wife and I went to Maui this past October. I put together a website of our trip. You'll see a number of references to Northern MN and the BWCAW.

Now I'm not a writer or a photographer and have never done a web site before. So....grab your favorite Don Ho CD, mix up a Mai Tai and come along for the ride. Please take a minute and sign the guest book and include where you are from.

PS: I'm not making any money off this site - I hope it doesnt break any rules to post it here. If anyone here is ever planning a trip to Maui, I'll be happy to help you out with any questions you might have.

Aloha!

Leaky, Holly Hana you did a super job documenting your vacation. I started to read and knew I didn't have enough time to finish so I want to get back to it later.

It sure would help anyone planning a trip to Hawaii to take a look. Take Care.

Went there before too, recognized a few of the same places. I could go to Hawaii every year I love it there so much. We went on a submarine and I went charter fishing too. Had a blast.

Hey Leaky,

Nice website! I like the video of you running into Steven Tyler! HaHaHa! Anyways, never been to Maui, but I have been to Kauai and the Big Island twice. Lots to see and do over there. I wish I was there right now...I love going over there! I am kinda hoping to go back next winter...we will see. My wife and I really liked Kauai alot- you should go there sometime.

Later,

Justin

Really cool Leaky!

I was there for my first time in July for someones wedding. We didn't get the time to explore the place like you did so I appreciate seeing some of the other places we though about going to. We were based out of Kaanapali Shores. Nice hotel but not like where you stayed.

We just seemed to be there at the wrong time. Bad surf, drought and a couple wildfires on the hills. Sure looks better in your production! Nice work!

Oh, and yeah, your last piece of advice: Upgrade to 1st class if you can for that flight! crazy.gif We didn't and halfway across the Pacific, I would have paid the pilot directly to get a couple seats but they were all full.

Justin--sounds like you're gettin that Jelly of the Month Club membership for your Christmas bonus, huh? grin.gif

Thanks guys. It was quite the adventure. I really liked the Hana side of the Island, which would lead me to believe Kauai would be awesome.

Casey - that Big Beach Vid is my favorite. I must have watched that thing 20 times now. That little girl running to the water and back just kills me. The Steven Tyler thing was pretty cool as well.

If you haven't watched the Paia vid, the chick that talks about pizza sauce being made with "red dirt from the earth" was also classic Paia.

Hi Picks

Comcast went and changed up the format on the website and I can't figure out how to get the links to work again. If you want to do some research prior to going, check out Trip Advisor dot com. They have Hawaii (Maui) forums that were a great help prior to us going.

      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.

      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      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... 
    • 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!!!
