      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.

Portable house marking??

Question

nauticaljohn

What do you guys use to mark your portables? I have a black Polar Sled. I have been trying to find a broad point white magic marker.

One option is to cut a stencil and spray paint it on.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Surface Tension

Stencil would work but if you sold the house the buyer might not like so much.

You could get some self stick velcro and put 1" squares in four corners. Stick it on and then make a sign out of white or yellow fabric and do the same. Make two signs while your at it. Leave one black if and sell it with the house.

Or skip the Velcro and use safety pins on the corners.

What surface said is great!

If you are in a pinch and have to get out, cut out legal sized strip of cardboard out of a pop or beer case. Mark you lic. number with marker on that (cradboard size), or DNR # and safety pin that right on Porty.

The law says nothing about look-in pretty cool.gif

I just printed mine out from word. Use a real big font and have it spreed over a few pages. Tape them together and then I used shipping tape to laminate the front and back. Works pretty good. I also have a sleeve on the back of my house (you can get them at Fleet Farm) that it slides into.

I do kind of a combo of stuff here - My Eskimo Quickflip II has a clear sleeve on the front, so I cut cardboard to fit in it, then printed out my DNR numbers on a laser printer in big font, then used packing tape to completely seal that printout to the cardboard. It also has room for taping on a shelter license.... which I won't need anymore. smile.gif

What has worked great for me is "white-out"....typically used in offices to "erase" print. It has a ball point tip and dries very quickly. You should be able to find at places like Office Max., Target, etc.

Otherwise there are also "paint pens" (many colors) used in crafts, etc. I have not personally used such, but have to think that would fit the application.

Best of luck.

My Otter Lodge has a piece of clear plastic with 2" reflective numbers on it that fits inside the sleeve on the outside, and my Frabill 1 man has a piece of cardboard that I drew the letters on in marker and then covered it with packing tape to seal it. That one also fits in the sleeve provided on the outside.

Do the numbers need to be at any certin height? I know they need to be 2 inches tall but could I put the peel and stick numbers on my voyager sled? or does it need to be eye level or something?

      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.

      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!!!
