      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.

Was there Tuesday and caught a lot of eyes but none more than 12 inches.

You may want to repost this in the Metro forum. There should be a couple recent Bald Eagle reports in the Metro forum.

Yeps, I was there very early this morning. I caught a lot of dinger eyes... No size to them, but the bite was consistent.

What part of the lake is rocky ridge, I've never heard of that? I can't even find it on the map.

rocky ridge is north of the island where the lake starts to narrow. there is a small bay behind it. in the summer there are bouys that extend from the point. thats rocky ridge.

Hope people don't keep them little eyes. That is a good chunk of the future fishery. Predation alone will wipe out a sizeable percent of them and when people start keeping a limit of them that certainly doesn't help. NOT SAYING everyone out there is keeping them, but i'm sure some are.

Iknow there easy to catch but also just as easy to put back down the hole!

Only a complete dink would be keeping 8-10 inch walleys. Then again there are more horses arses than there are horses in the world.

Thats odd I rarely catch dink 'eyes on Bald Eagle. I dont fish the shanty towns or traditional spots though.

Yeah I usually do pretty well on Bald Eagle also. I don't fish with the crowds but the three times I have been there this year so far the biggest I have caught is about 14 inches.

Hey guys, I don't assume everyone keeps the dinks but some do i'm sure. Personally i'd rather leave the crowds and find a nice quiet spot out there. Any recent info on ice?

Probably gonna slow down a bit after this nasty weather.

Good Luck, ole

      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.  
    • IceHawk
      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. 
    • mrpike1973
      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.
