      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.

cold weekend

Recommended Posts

ilovehardwater

Im coming up this weekend for my first time, I'm very excited to go. For mobility we decided to fish out of portables instead of renting a sleeper. The forcast looks very cold, I think we are going to have to run both the big and little buddy heaters. I just hope that the winds stay down and we can run into some fish...BT

There predicting between -26 & -36 for windchill factors on Sat.

Winds out of NW @ 9-11 mph.

Renting a hard-house sounds more appealing to me IMO.

Good Luck

sometimes the best fising is during the cold snap. I know guys that were out last year on Red during the cold snap. They had the best week of the year up there. Fish cannot tell when the air is cold, only barometric pressure. over the limit, you need to get out more to see for yourself.

I would agree,I have had some really good luck when it was very cold. I think pressure is more important. The moon is getting close to full. That should help. It's always worth it to get out when you have the time im my opinion, cold or warm.

Since the front has already moved through and high pressure is overhead, that should help the fishing for the next few days, at least I hope it does...

We were up last year same weekend and same cold snap weather. We did fine. Most of the fish were on tipups but got one big walleye in the house on a rattle reel. Tip ups caught perch and walleyes on red hooks and fat heads. I won't say these are ideal conditions but a few days of steady cold weather are better then a variety of weather changes. I guess we'll see how the weekend goes. Good luck!

Fishing out of the portables was not bad at all. We fished all day Saturday and until 1pm today. Our best day was Saturday with 20 nice pearch 9-11.5 inch and 6 early this morning of the same size. No walleyes but I'm pleased with the quality of pearch we caught. I just might have to make another trip up there before the end of the season and try to hook into some eyes.....BT

      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.
