      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.

I plan on fishing Prescott this weekend. Can anybody tell me how this fishing is out there and how the bite is?

I was out by Prescott Wednesday night from 5-7. Marked a few fish but caught nothing. I started on the north edge of the flat halfway between the MN shore and where the group of perms are in 17ft. Marked fish there and had a few fish follow up from the bottom, only to swim away. Moved up to 15ft and marked very few fish and I suspect most of those were small schools of bait fish. The next time I go out I will probably try the shoreline or out where most of the perms are setup. There were many vehicles out on the ice and some were out near where there was open water only a few weeks ago. They may not have been all that close but it was an area that I would never drive. Good luck and be safe!

The ice was around 16-18" where I checked. I will probably be down there on Friday afternoon/evening and again on Sunday. I have a Red Toyota Tundra and a Frabil shack, stop by and say hi if you see me.

WOW \:o thats alot of ice. Now is there anything special that the fish are bitting on like gold hooks or anything, and bait wise i am geussing that a guy would bring fatheads and maybe something alittle bigger for a tipup, or should i just go with fatheads for my hooks and tipups??

THANX Robbie

Hows the Fishin been? And where can you get access to the river? I have fished this section in the spring, but never ice fished it. But am looking to give it a try. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.

      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!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      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.

      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.

      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.
