      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.

No need to give out GPS coordinates (you can e-mail them grin.gif) but, whos heading out this weekend?

My plan, the plan that I have not yet presented to Mrs boilerguy so it will probably change, is to hit Bingham Lake after work on Friday. I haven't fished this lake much, and let's just say I'm curious. Saturday is my sons birthday and he wants to do other stuff. Maybe that evening after festivities are over I'll go hit a lake somewhere. Sunday I think I have open, anyone wanna hit a lake????

Wooooooooooooooooooo, tempting. I was just told my weekend schedule is goood as long as i fix Mrs boilerguys chair. I can do that. I fix million dollar machines for a living I can handle a chair. Or, I can wrap enough duct tape around a chair to make it work.

I really want to go to URL, but I think it's no go for this weekend. However, I'm game for a Sunday if anyone is interested in a local SW MN lake.

I fished Bingham Lake alot towards the end of the season last year, and did quite well. Just waiting for the ice report to come out on that lake first.

I will say this, South side road is the way on, but don't always believe the masses are on fish. There are fish biting, but you have to find them. One thing I can surely tell you about Round, you have to be willing to move to keep up.

As for other reports from phone calls of people asking me where I am at... Lake Wilson perch bite... Boot Lake perch bite... Talcot walley bite.... Have not heard a single thing off of West Graham, or Okabena. East produced some fish a week ago with very light bite, not too aggressive.

I have many friends who have spent the entire week on Round Lake and yes they have caught some fish, but many were 12-14 inchers, which in my house get to swim again. Give me 3 or 4 16-18 inchers and me and the girls are gonna eat! Fry up the taters, butter me up a piece of bread and strap on a feed bag.

Long story short. There are some fish going home, but nothing to write home about. I am going to try again on Saturday afternoon, with the buddies, but for the most part we are just going to be christening a new year by bringing out the first of three hard houses....(this being the LIGHT one!)

I think I am done pheasant hunting in Minnesota this year. I got my share and gots to leave some to grow up. Plus I am going to South Dakota next week.

Tight lines and stay safe!

Last weekend. Dead smelt on the bottom. They are on the prowl that's for sure.

Some perch are coming out of Bean. Crappies and perch on Lime. I haven't heard anything about either Grahm or Cottonwood.

I never saw a house on Bean, but I heard the walleyes are biting on Double. Tonight again there were around 8 vehicles at the landing. I am going to assume at least 6 inches as there was 4 wheelers out there.

Kennedy is a fishing pro at the age of 10! Enjoy them eyes! Key to good day ice fishing is getting a full tummy in the near future and not falling in! Bonus if you don't have to walk 3/4 way across the lake again!!!! Had a blast man, gotta do it again!

Fish in the pail make the work out worth it.

I'm glad you towed my outta shape butt back. I would have had to stop at Wal-mart and buy a lung.

Too much fun. We have to hook up again. (pun intended)I don't know what lake I'm hitting next. I think I'll get the wheeler running this week and put my house on Sarah for a try.

I will be at a local treatment facility soon... but for the next week, I will be having ice fishing withdrawls. I have to go to ND for work and then hitting South Central South Dakota to shoot some rooty birds with the boys on the annual Pheasant hunt!

Keep some fish in the lake and be safe.

Sounds like you fellas had a pretty good time. My Amateur Coangler and I headed south saturday to do a little looking around and ended up with 25-30 nice gills and headed back sunday on my own and ended up with 49 gills and crappies in less than 5 hours on the ice. Pretty good weekend and hopefully the next will be better now that we should be able to get onto some better spots.

      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.
    • mrpike1973
      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!!  
    • fowldreams
      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.

      Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"

      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!!!
