      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.

Best Place To Walk From????

Recommended Posts

littlemikey

I'm heading up on Sunday early morning with a buddy, and i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for somewhere to walk out from that wouldn't be horribly far, but still have a decent chance at a few eyes and perch. Was going to wait till there was enough ice for a truck, but have the urge to go this weekend, and don't have access to a wheeler or a snowmobile.

I walked out of Cove public access today, lots of perch...but required a good amount of sorting. I wouldn't expect 'eyes in that water.

I have walked out of lybacks. It is close to structure and he will help you out on fishing spots. It is on the south shore just west of Isle.

Let us know how you did. I may head up at the end of next week.

I agree, if you are going to walk out on that lake Lybacks is the place to do it from. You can catch anything on that first reef and its a reasonable distance.

You can walk out on our place as well - right in Isle bay. We are catching a mix of perch and walleye - just caught a fat 26" last night...

During the early season, I usually walk out by Father Hennepin State Park.

I launch my boat from there a lot in the SPring time as well, and fish close to that area... I do very well..

Is there a fee to access through the state park?

report from sunday,

Well i went against everything and decided to go to rocky reef area, ended up walking a long ways and thought we were going to die. Got out there and set up around 8am and stayed about an hour after dark. We were rewarded for our efforts though. We ended up getting three keeper eyes 16" or so, then couple that were only about 10" that we obviously put back and a couple in the slot. Also lost a nice one at bottom of my hole. We also caught quite a few perch all day and seen a ton more on the marcum and aqua view, but had to do alot of sorting in order to get a few keepers out of them. Action was really up and down all day, but best time was definitely about the last hour or so of light. All in all not too bad of a day.

      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.

      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...

      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!!!
