      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.

First off I wanted to thank Mike's Bait Shop for giving me infomation about the lake and it's regulations. We did pretty good out there during the morning hours as we landing 2 walleyes and a northern. The eyes were pretty fat, one at 18 inches and the other at 19... three pretty good hits came off assuming it be eyes... alot of lookers and also caught a few sunnies... will be back there this weekend. Ice thickness ranged from 6 to 9 inches. Good luck out there and be safe.

Nice report, Rich at Mikes bait does a nice job keeping up with the area reports and will always steer you in the right direction. Ask him about fishing Mille lacs sometime, he's got alot of experience on the big pond too!

Does anyone know where the rock bottoms are at??? Just looking to try something new up there... had a map but lost it... I don't like fishing with the crowds so if you guys go up and see a couple of portables in the middle of nowhere... thats us...

I agree, the guys at the bait shop are top-notch!

I spent a few hours on Green the other day and the fishing was very good. Caught a lot of gills in the shallows, with some nice crappies mixed in. The crappies came through only a couple feet below the ice and were very aggressive. Also managed to land a few bass and broke off on about a 10 pound pike by the hole. Also watched a few walleyes swim by that were not interested. Size 8 Ratsos, no bait, we the hot ticket. Pink head with a white body... 6-7 feet of water...

Made it back up there and found the school of crappies. Alot of 8 inchers but manage to get a few plus sizes for the frying pan. Snow made it real hard to pull our portables but was worth it. Saw some really nice northerns on the camera but they weren't interested in our shiners. Again caught alot of blue gills but were small. Thinking about going back up there this coming weekend. Good luck.

Only on the very south part of the lake. However, i would not drive a vehicle out quite yet. The lake has slush and snow, not exactly helping with the safety of the ice. Ice seems to be around 8" on south end. No roads plowed yet.

My fish truck is a hair heavier, so i think I will wait. It may be old and rusty, but I don't want to turn it into a submarine just yet!

I usually fish Glyers bay for crappies and is that were you guys are having the best luck? I heard down by little Green has been good as well. Most important question, I am planning on taking the four wheeler and hauling two shacks on the snowmobile trailer. Will this be an impossible dream with the snow/slush or is it packed down from snowmobile traffic back to the bay.

Thanks for the help

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      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.
