      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.

I was out there Friday evening and Saturday. There was 8.5

inches where I fished. It was good, but there were some

slushy spots. A wheeler, ok, but trucks, you have to be crazy. The fishing wasn't fast and furious either.

Is anyone having any luck out there? I was out most of the afternoon and evening on Saturday without any luck. I'd just like to know if I'm the only one or just doing something wrong. Thanks

Fished up on Norway on the 7th and 8th of Dec. Friday night we walked out there, bout 2 hours worth of walkin. Once we got out there found anywhere from 8-12" of ice. With all the ATV's and sleepers out there we decided to drive out on Saturday and it was fine. Although we had a little 4 cylinder pickup that doesn't weigh a hair more than a ATV sleeper combo. Got alot of criticism for it but was alot better than walking 2 hours both ways! Fishing was descent with only about a 1 1/2 hour time slot, 4:30-6:00pm. Nothing before and nothing after. Caught everything from 6-10" eyes, smaller sunnies, a couple descent largemouths and even a few smaller crappies. Nothing with size, but definitely made our time worth it.

There is a pretty big village that has developed on Norway. The fishing has since slowed way down. You can still catch a few crappies and walleyes but they are very small and you have to work pretty hard to get those even. I'm moving my house to a different lake today. I get claustrophobic with that many houses that close to me. grin.gif

Fished Norway yesterday. Fish were hard to come by. Managed a 26" pike on a tip-up and a 21" walleye on a jig and fathead combo. Fished next to others we knew. They were catching a few smaller eyes. Ice thickness varied greatly. Where we were it was 14 inches a hundred yards away less then 10. So be careful. People were driving full sized trucks out though. Fished in 10.7 feet of water.

sure is Jesse! I had an account on here back in high school but its been quite a few years since I've used this, so I had started up a new one. Yeah, Jordan and I stopped up to the Green Mill to see ya after fishin, but they said you hadn't worked there in a couple of months. Maybe we'll have to get together and go fishing sometime.

Hey Jesse, Jordan and I are heading up tomorrow morning to fish up there somewhere. Haven't exactly figured out for sure where we're going to try. Maybe Long, Florida or somewhere else. Hoping to be set up a little after one. You'll have to give us a call if you plan on doing any fishing tomorrow or just wanna know what's up with fishin. Either way we'll be out there. Give us a call. 507-430-0501

      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!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      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.
    • Wanderer
      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.
