      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.

Fishing has been slow, real slow out of there. Talked with numerous groups with nothing to show for there efforts. Of course the cold limited alot of the focus for some, but 1 guy had a pale with some decent perch. They had roads all the way out to the jug and numerous other flats on the way. The breaks in closer to shore had seemed to been the only area producing at the last time I was there. Headed back up again in the a.m. to give it another go round! Ice conditions were shaping up real well, with 16-18 being the norm. Only problem would be depth of snow in some area's but most should be ok with 4x4. Good luck fishing!

Talked to some guys went off the south tip of barnicle flats and caught 20 walleyes in a couple of hours the other evening at last light- best dam report i've heard all year off of lacs! They said they found the bottom of the flat, and just started marching out into no-mans land drilling holes deep every 10 feet or so checking for fish and did well. We were up on the structure bank and only caught 2 dinkers and a perch. I'd try both and let us no what happens- be carefull for snow and slush pockets though- Got my rhino with 16" of clearence and new ITP's stuck in that [PoorWordUsage]. Good luck

That would sound like the best report I heard also! Wish I would bumped into those guys! I've had luck doing the same thing in years past, looks like its time to get back to the tried and true methods again! I didnt seem to find the slush your talkin about, thank god! Everything seemed really solid after Friday, but earlier last week I also did find a few pockets. I would assume after last weekend though most of that should be gone.

      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.

      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...

      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!!!
