      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.

Empty trapline

Checked the trapline again this morning and still nothing. Traps have been out for a week now. Triggers were all adjusted perfect, bait was fresh, locations are ideal, the weather is cold. My only conclusion: the mice at work are getting smarter over the years!!

I should start doing that also, this darn warm weather is a SIN. below freezing for the first time in a few days again today, however we are suppose to get 6 inches of snow tomorrow and then warm up to mid 30's for a few days again. I may never get to the yukon if this crap keeps up.

I think the magnetic fields up there close to the north pole have affected your reasoning ability Fish. You have been gone so long your becoming irrational. Maybe you need to come back to MN and have a few pheasant and wild rice dinners, and watch a football game. 15 below just means more work, trying to keep the house warm. I burn lots of firewood when we get below zero. No, I'm just spoofin ya, I hope you get what you wish for, then maybe we'll get the weather we are supposed to get.

Last year I ended up with about a dozen mice, nothing so far this year despite the cold weather. Always fun to watch the ladies at work squirm when I bring a dead one into the office! Funny, they hate them and a single mouse turd in the building drives them nuts but they still don't like to see them dead.

I had a major invasion this fall at our house, I think I finished up at 5..........found a gap outside in the garage where I think they were getting in. needless to say, my pregnant wife was not happy.........caught most of them while I was out of town hunting on the weekends grin.gif

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
