      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.

I don't have much of a fishing report, I've been up there 2 times and that was to just basically get the fish houses out on the spots, first weekend didn't go so well, had to leave one fish house 1/2 way out on the ice, wheelers couldn't pull it anymore, too much snow, not enough ice to trust bringing the truck out, hooked on last weekend with the truck and pulled it the rest of the way.

Only fished about 4 hours total so far, action is there, threw back a bunch of small walleye, kept one keeper. Found 2 HUGE perch and 1 40" pike.

Glow red seems to work the best so far, didn't seem to matter if it was live bait or frozen. Ice is about 15" plus.

Will be up there this weekend or sometime near new years anyway.

I haven't been up there but my Dad has been up there for 3 days. S L O W W W W is the word but then he doesn't use much for electronics, he knows how to use the GPS and that is it. Beside he usually goes for Pike instead of Walleye but they did manage a few perch I guess, the Walleye they did catch were very small.

I'm still planning on this weekend, I've been going out of Birch all season so far, will be at the Marina in a couple weeks though.

Might bring the sled this weekend and go exploring a little.

I think you should be fine too hopefully this weather won't mess them up too much, Dad had talked to some guys fishing South Tip this last weekend and it sounded like they were doing well.

FISH.....

Thanks for the use of the Vex, worked great, Dan did find his so we had 4 units up there. I finally got to use my Marcum in the portable instead of leaving it in one of the perm. houses and having to ' share ' a screen with Jon. Got to be a battery recharging fest in the evening but we managed well.

It was a great time again, I put a report on the other Buffalo Bay report thread.

Thanks again.....

Mike

      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.

      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.

      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.
