      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.

Need A New Shack

Recommended Posts

Tipup101

Looking for a new shack. Suggestions would be great. It needs to be roomy, sturdy, and quick to set up. Looking to keep it under $250. Looked at the Menards strike zone two but not a big fan of that style but i could get use to it. Looking at the Eskimo Quick fish 3 anyone checked them out.

I had one. Its ok. If your hard on your equipment then it will only last you a season. Mine is pretty trashed, im thinking of hauling it to the dump. I upgraded to a voyager. Email me if you have any questions. mrj6749 at yahoodotcom

I've had the Quickflip III going on 3 years now. I bought it mostly because of the bench seat and the sled. I'm not a big fan of the canvas they put on them.

I'm either going to put those hyfax runners on the sled or just pick up a Frabile.

Pulling that thing on snow is like draggin' a plow sometimes.

You can't beat the price of a Quickflip III though.

Well I searched around! Looking at the prices i bought a strike zone 2. Flip top with the sled. The canvas on that thing is why I got it. Price helps to. It heats up in a hurry. I put a floor in the sled and where ready to go. Its kinda heavy but I need the workout. I think I'll be happy with it. thanks for the help though.

      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!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      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.
