      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.

Going up to LOW for first time. Going to Arnesen's who don't sell Emerald Shiners. Where is the best place for us to pick some Emerald's up on our way?

If your coming from the west thru Warroad the Holiday station and Riverside bait, a BP station both have 'em. If your coming from the east pretty much all the shops in Baudette have 'em. When in Baudette for bait I usually get mine from Howards Conoco, 5 bucks a scoop but you get a major scoop!

I saw in a store emerald shiners in a plastic bag about 2 lbs. worth. Anybody ever used them, if so should they be something to take up to Zipple next week?

Those shiners in a bag are beautiful aren't they. They

dont have any smell to them at all!!! If you needed the

bait for show maybe they would be ok but I threw them

all away after a couple of trips out because they just

didnt produce anything (even this fall on those 150 fish

days things would stop in a hurry when I put one on.

Beautiful, easy, no mess...no fish.

I may have been using them all wrong but they dont just

replace live or frozen shiners the way we use them on

LOW

Thanks for all the info. Sounds like going through Baudette there will be no issue finding some. Going up in a week for first time...I feel like a 4 year old asking his parents every 5 minutes are we there yet.

Every time I buy bait at Adrians it dies quickly. I';d suggest Log Cabin just down the road. However, my second trip out this year I stopped and got bait and it wasn't the same old guy at the desk. This fella mixed my chubs and shinners w/out asking me and thus I had about a half dozen survive the weekend, Chubs lasted fine though. Either way, Good Luck fishing.

I never have trouble with Adrians shiners, just got some last weekend and they made it the full weekend. That was until Sunday morning when Mr Walleye ate the last one.

You must be doing something wrong.

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.

      Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.

      We made a day trip a couple of Sundays ago. Fished from about 9:30 to 3:30 and my kid caught 2 walleye- 21" & 25" with a tag. In the past two winters I've made a total of 3 day trips and have a total of 10 walleye from 19-25 inches. I think the numbers may not be a may, but the quality is great. Very similar to the late 90's not as many fish, but great size.

      no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.
