      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.

This is a pic of my house being moved:

Better question is what is the point of you writing "what was the point of this?" Some thoughts are better kept to yourself.

Anyways thanks for sharing the pics and hopefully the bite pics up for you. I will be up there on sat. from noon to midnight hopefully with a couple of fish to show for it.

The reason I said "whats the point of this" is because everyone has seen a fish house getting pulled out. If you look on this site and see where it states, Forum's, Hot tips, and Secrets what so secret about this?

Yeah it is one of my favorite pictures I have ever taken on the pond. I took it just two miles out, looking back over hunters point.

One of the things that those pictures show to a small degree is the diversity of the fish house styles on Mille Lacs. I have seen more different designs, sizes, colors, etc. than on any other lake. I think a lot of guys think of their fish houses up there the same way young boys think of their cardboard box clubhouses. That's good, right. Being an adult is way over-rated.

Nice pics, I enjoy seeing pics from everyone. It shows you ice fishing though someone elses eyes.

By the way minni, the title for this thread is "Pics of the big pond". If you werent ready to see pictures of miile lacs lake then you should have never clicked on the thread. Like some other people have said, keep your comments to yourself.

Awesome shots..thanks.

I shared them with some folks we were fishing with (ocean) in California over the holidays. They could not believe that people ice fished.

My kids are always impressed by the amounts of blues/oranges and colors during sunsets and rises (if we are awake for fish) on the lake. I think the huge white backdrop of ML helps.

A few years ago I had a friend up from Santiago Chile, he was so moved he painted a bunch of water color sketches, some of which he shared with my friend and I and some of which are now back in Santiago Chile on his office wall. So you never know where impressions will be taken.

thanks again.

      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.
    • mrpike1973
      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      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!!  
    • fowldreams
      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!!!
