      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.

Man was it a cold day out there. Fishing was ok, managed 10 nice sized perch 3 bluegills and 1 crappie to bring home. If I would have tried I could have brought home more bluegills but wasnt really after them. I did see a number of good sized eyes on the cam but couldnt get them to bite. I was in 18fow. There are very few things in life that make me mad but seeing all of the trash that is on the ice that people dont pick up really makes me mad. I also passed a spot where someone caught 3 really nice crappies and just left them on the ice because they didnt feel like cleaning them. If we want this lake to keep producing people need to clean up after themselves and only keep what they will clean.

Yup, that really sucks people left fish out on the ice to rot. Its possible they forgot them somehow. Thanks for the fishing report. If everyone picks up something on their way off the ice it will be a lot cleaner. Unfortunately, there will always be those who won't pick up after themselves.

Hey fishingkid, what kind of camera do you use on east rush? I have an aqua view and it didnt work very well. How many fow does it work in, mabey I was too deep. Also does your camera work at night? mine doesnt work very well in low light conditions. Plus I was on west rush, mabey that was it. Is the water clarity that much better over there? This last wen. I caught my first ever walleye on west rush, it was a good eater at 16" and a blast to catch. I have really pounded on some great crappie & perch action on that lake before, but have never gotten any eyes. I go to mille lacs just because the camera works so well, but if it is usable on rush that is alot closer. Thanks for any info.

I bought my camera at Menards last year so its one of those off brands but it works great. If I had to guess how far I can see with the camera I would guess 10-15 feet away and I was in 18fow. At night its a whole different story 1-2 feet away depending on how clear the water. The DNR stocks both East and West with a lot of walleyes and there are some big ones in there. I would say every summer we catch 3 or 4 that are abotu 9lbs. when trolling with large sucker minnows for pike.

theicefishingkid,

      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.
