      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.

extravaganza question

Recommended Posts

late night

I plan on fishing the contest but a buddie of mine wants to come up and just observe and not fish. Does he need to by a ticket to be in the contest area? I looked up the rules on the jaycees web-site but they do not say. Thanks

You only need a ticket if you are fishing in one of the holes. I've seen quite few people out there just hanging out observing the crowd. Some people just play the raffles. Good Luck.

Just tell your buddies to support the charities and buy some of the raffle tix. The odds are about the best you can find.

Hey Camp Bob...

How ya been?

Haven't seen you in awhile.

Camp still going strong?

Keeping your hair in your head with all you do...camp, and planning of the contest?

What are the expected numbers this year for the contest?

Should be another good one, but I think a bit chilly.

Good Luck!!

Since this thread is already going I will post my question here:

1.)Is it leagal to use an under water camera (down viewing type) during the contest?

2.)If so, do many people use them?

I figure my FL-8SLT would have too much interference and wouldnt work as good out of the two (camera or vex).

Thank's for any input and good luck

If I were you I would bring your vexilar to check depths and then think of not using it during the actual contest. You may spend a lot of time searching to find the right depth.

My grandpa used to tell us "It's better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it." He was a wise old man.

Beginner question - How do you select your hole/holes for the tourny? Can you just pick any hole that is not occupied? Then do you have to stay in the same hole/holes? Or are you assigned a numbered hole or something???

tisosy11,

You can fish any hole that isn't taken. While you can only fish 1 hole at a time, you can move to any open one at any time.

      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!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      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.
