      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.

Atta boy! You maybe could post your pic over in the panfish forum under the weather related post from earlier today.It might give the folks the idea that cold weather conditions are not a lost cause situation, for catching the fish.I usually don't visit here too often,but the reason I was in this forum was I was looking for anything recent on Big Stone Lake.

TOO COLD?!?!? I ended up with 3 eyes and 2 cats just before dark. Catfish are a hoot to catch through the ice, gotta love those whiskers!

These must have come from a SD lake because our limit of crappies in MN is 10. Nice batch of fish. What's the length of the largest crappie?

Perchpounder is the master of pannies down here. He has so many spots people think he is a leopard. Chris, I figured with the cold and the swap meet in SF you would have stayed home this weekend. guess I was wrong. nice catch.

Nice fish Perchpounder!!!

Too cold?? No way. I just got back from URL. It was a bit chilly, but never too cold.

By the way Chris, I have your sign and bait puck. Next time we hook up on the ice I'll return them.

When did the limit drop to 10? jk. Yeah they were caught in IA but the IGL maybe not? those are just the ones I kept we had 43 total the biggest one kept was 13.5. It bit so high in the column it hit the ice when I set the hook. Who said the fish move deeper in the middle of winter? those were caught in less than 6' of water and no live bait was needed. Im not too worried BG I know where it's at I forgot about it until friday when I was getting my stuff ready. It was a little slower today we only ended up with around 30 in about 3 hours I think, but man did they get picky. Sorry no camera today maybe next week.

BG I could have used you there saturday that crappie would have made another nice avatar no? Oh well maybe next time.

Perchpounder, you're a confusing guy. Your location shows SD and MN and you go to IA to catch your fish. Evidentally, you know what you're doing.

Trust me im no master but I can get it done on occaision. the guys I fish with down there will make me look silly about 70% of the time. I really like the new camera I just wish I would have had more gas in my auger so I could have stayed ahead of the fish I could see on it.

      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.

      Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"

      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!!!
