      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.

Go to Fremont in Zimmerman and go to the north end. Go about 40-50yds off shore and start fishing.

Your not asking for much are you?

All the lakes in the Chisago lakes area have decent populations of fish, and some size to them as well... Big Marine lake probably has the best for numbers, but not size...

as for location.. your on your own... I would search out green weeds with deep water near by.

If you are thinking about going to Lake Fremont, check out this story from the Elk River Star News:

Lake Fremont allows open fishing

Tuesday, 22 January 2008

Open fishing is being allowed on Lake Fremont from Jan. 15 through Feb. 15 because low oxygen level is endangering fish life.

“We had very low oxygen readings yesterday and today,” reported Eric Altena, assistant area fisheries manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, on Jan. 15. He said the lake’s aeration system will likely allow some fish to survive but noted “there are fish dying on the north end ... due to low oxygen.”

Signs have been posted at the public access and at the north end.

Open fishing means unlimited catches by licensed resident anglers in any manner except for the use of seines, hoop nets, fyke nets, or explosives.

Go there Biff and drive the north road and check out the little back bay that the culvert runs into and you will see all the devastation that is left on top of the ice......big carp and lots of little bullheads!!! I have only seen 2 people fishing the actual lake part in the last 2 weeks.....

Wow....That lake used to be really good for Pike, straight out and a little to the right from where the culvert ran in there. To bad for Fremont.

Fremont Lake....well, you can stick a fork in it, because it is done.I spent part of the afternoon out there today,and the fish are gone.I fished 4 different sections of the lake with nothing to show for it.There is at least 30 inches of ice on the lake right now.I did drive the north road when I left, and saw the channel that was chiseled in the ice by the culvert.Dead and frozen fish, carp I am assuming, were on the ice by the chisled out area.A local guy who was driving by, told me as I was unloading the atv, that he had seen carp and bullheads floating in the open area north of road a couple of days ago.Not good. Oh,well.At least it might mean bigger fish in a couple of years.

      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.

      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!!

      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!!!
