      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.

Yeah I was out there on Saturday. Set up in the "village", between the points. Should have probably found our own spot though, tons of people out there and lots of wheeler and sled traffic. Only got a few crappies.

Ice was 7-8". There is a pretty good trail started out from the access.

I was out there last week. About 8" of ice. Did see a car and small suv drive out, still not thick enough for me to risk it. I'll stick with the atv for now. Crappies were biting, but size was an issue... 7 to 9 inches are about the biggest we pulled up.

I was out there all day on Saturday. We were out in the Village. We got there at daybreak and fished until 5:00 p.m. We caught tons of teenie weenie perch and a few bluegills. I have to say I was a little disappointed! Not so much with the fishing but with what was all over the ice. Garbage! My son picked up a BIG bag of other people's crap! Beer cans, plastic bottles, paper, little crappies people left on the ice. It's no small wonder that our lakes are going to you know where. Personally I think its our responsibility to one, clean up after ourselves and two tell the slob next to you to clean up. My son is 12 and he had more responsibility than alot of the people I saw out there on Saturday. What a circus! Buffalo is pretty much the same thing. If you bring it with you to the lake take it home with you and put it where it belongs!!!! Also, if your not going to keep those 6" to 8" crappies please throw them back.

Was out last week I stayed away from the crowd and fished the first point from the landing. I fished from 1-5pm and kept 10 gills that where decent size. I also had a tip up out and not one flag. I was suprised by the size of the gills i caught considering in the past nothing but dink size fish.

      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.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
