      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.

A friend was up last weekend and told me a house sunk to the roof at one end after he insisted that the resort put it out for him. i was told the bill was $4000 to get it out. Another house had the ice sag and had 2 ft of water inside. The owner was able to jack the house up and out of the water. Also a report that Dickies had 2 houses torched, not sure how much dammage was done but with all the wood in a fishhouse I would expect not too much left.

Didn't hear about the sinking houses but watched one of Dickies rentals burn New Years eve real close to my perm out of Liberty Beach, not much left. The fire Dept. showed up drilled a hole in the Ice and pumped water on it

Why isn't there a need to post where the houses sank? I would think it'd be nice to know areas of thin ice.

Was there anyone in the houses? Were they vacant? Anyone hurt? Years ago I purchase a CO2 detector and bring it with no matter who I rent from. It has gone off a couple of times over the years. I would highly recommend anyone renting a house bring a detector with them.

My feelings are that there is no need to post bad press against a resort owner. I personally know the owner and have fished with him going back 25 years. The house owner was adviced not to but the house out. The resort owners want us out as bad as we want out. They know the lake better than we do. Lets listen to their advice and heed their warnings. As far as the torched houses at Dickies I was told they were not occupied when they were set on fire.

minnbowhunter I'm not at all concerned what resort it was. The same thing could have happened to someone making their own road. I was refering to where on the lake a person should be careful, i.e. the house went in on this flat or that reef, there's a big crack at this spot... It wasn't a bash on any resort, that's for sure.

I understand your point and it is well taken. unfortunatly the info I got was 2nd hand and I don't know exactly on the lake the house was, only that it happpened on the east side. Your right, people should know if there is an area to stay clear of.

from what I heard which is also second hand is that it was along the east side out from Hunter's somewhere. So if your going out in that area just ask the resort owner about bad ice they will be more than happy to tell you.

      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.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      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!!!
