      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.

driving to 5 mile

Anyone driving a half ton and wheel house to 5 mile, looking to drag the wheelhouse out there friday. How is the snow? Is anyone going to plow a road from Warroad again this year? I'd be happy to chip in for that service. I would consider 12 mile if there was a road from rocky point.

Yep - there's a truck path that parallels Heath's bomber trail out there. 4WD is recommended. Nothing is plowed as of last night.

Springsteel crew finished their plow track to the S-tip late last week Chris. 5mile is pretty much straight S of the S-tip around about 4 miles. It sits nearly smack dab in the middle of Muskeg bay 5 miles out from Warroad.

Yes,my mistake Elm point,then I'm assuming your reference to south tip is the same as buffalo point?That is where the nice sand bar is dividing the canadian/us boarder right?That guy with the red&white permanent (Pilot I think?)sets his out there often.(A freind of Jake's)c63

Ya man you may just wanna break out the BIG beans and get yourself a map eh!!

Hmmm, how to explain? There is Buffalo point and the south tip of Buffalo point. These are both mainland Manitoba, Buffalo to the N and South Buffalo to the south {duh!}. The waters just out from, or south of the South tip are US waters waters of Muskeg Bay. The border runs east out into the lake from there for a couple of miles as well and there is a sandbar nearshore there which you may be reffering to. "Whiskey Flats" sits out here to the east along the border as well and you may be thinking of that?

If I was more puter savvy I'd send you something mapwise off my LM software but that would be a hairpuller!!

      I will be going out for the night bite on green this week. I need to find some more fish as the wife wants a fresh fish dinner.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.
