      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.

Last Sat I had an amazing day in the 26-27' range. I was away from the people so that is where I would head. As mentioned from 9-12 it was great then it slowed but I was still marking fish but they were smaller saugers. But it was probably the best bite I have had on LOW in years. I realize last sat to this week is a big time change but I would think the bite should stil be pretty strong for you.

Just came back from the lake last night. We fished the perm in 27fow and didn't produce like the week before. Came home with 6 keeper. I did try moving deeper to 30fow saturday afternoon with no results. Noticed houses moving in pretty steady yesterday. Looks like a new village setting up west of the road on the Y. LakeView started moving houses there too. Haven't heard of any great results yet. I'll stay with my location for now and move with the portable on Wed/Thurs to try and find the fish. Pretty slow across the whole lake this weekend. We'll have to wait it out for now.

I dunno about that "slow across the whole lake" comment? Surprised you mentioned in another post of yours saying it's been slow for 2 weeks??

Saturday I fished mid-depth rock/rubble and had the best action I've had in all my trips since December 1, alot of smallish fishes though! Yesterday's evening trip on a 14 foot sand/gravel break saw steady action for dandy fish from 3 till all the way dark and not but 1 hut within 3/4's of a mile from me.

It's a BIG pond and them fishes are out there and catchable on a few different types of locations these days.

Hey WhiskeyPete,

We are neighbors (sort of) glad to have you here.

There were large areas where fishing has been slow lately.

I wont pretend to have any reasons why. But what Fisky

said rings real true when times get tough. Having a

little bit different area in your bag can be huge.

My other post talks about moving shallow at the end of

the day. This isnt new information and as I looked along

the 12 foot contour line I didnt see 30 fish houses for

as far as I could see in either direction and the fish

were just nuts!

Some of our group picked away at fish all day and did

all right in the deeper water (22 feet) but we didnt

have much to show for the Friday fishing effort until we

moved shallow.

Whether it's a bit of gravel or rock pile or 5 miles of

shoreline the fish are biting some where. On those days

when the fish just wont bite, moving to your secret spot

will accomplish 2 things. 1). Maybe you will get into em

good. 2) Your day will be used up trying to better your

catch whether you do or dont.

Good luck next time out friend. You Red Lake Falls boys

know how to fish, you will figure it out.

I'm not saying there's NO fish being caught out there, just one of those years I've had where moving is the key. I haven't given up on LOW or Morris, just need to more around a bit more than I'd like. LakeView is one place that will keep me coming back. Thanks to Al and Michelle!

Thanks for the reports.

Well, we're leaving in the morning again for Morris Point. I've heard of people catchin' steady in 32-34' and still having a good morning bite at 17-20'. I'm loaded up and ready to go again. Just looking for the most recent reports.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
