      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.

Sugar Report 1/26

Recommended Posts

JBMasterAngler

Hit sugar today. Fished the drop offs of reed island. Started the day with a dead vexilar battery. So I punched a bunch of holes while waiting for my dad to show with his vex. Every one of my holes ended up being in 4' of water or less. Was a good way to kill time anyway. Finally started fishing about an hour after being on the ice. Couldn't catch anything but tiny perch. My guess is the small airplane that kept taking off and landing on the ice over and over again spooked the fish mad.gif. Will hit cedar tomorrow, hopefully I will do better there.

Sorry to hear about that. I heard the airplane flying overhead as well. That sucks when he buzzes over.

Can't condem a guy for enjoing his form of recreation as long as he's not violating any laws. There's a lot of interests out there and only one great outdoors. Lets all enjoy it and give something back to nature (the great outdoors) each year.

Very true. I do know a guy that has one, and he gave up fishing because he loves it so much!

Fished Sugar on Sunday. The plane's were out there. I know the guys. And NO, it does not scare the fish. Had a Muskie down the hole when he Buzzed the fishhouse. He didn't even flinch.

Anyways- seen alot of muskies on Grass Island during the day. Northerns were staying in deeper water, hitting sucker minnows in 30 FOW. Didn't seen any Muskies after 4 o'clock, then the pike moved up to the shallows just a little after 4. They were hitting sucker minnows.

Are reed and weed island the same location? As in the point around the corner from the north access?

Its not Reed Island or weed Island. "Grass island" separates the main lake from the north bay. It starts at Bell Point. The point with Bell on it, and it goes to the reed bed on the north end. Hope this helps.

I was out on one of the humps of the main lake on Sunday. Tons of 6" and smaller perch on the tops. Two tip up pike in 20 FOW. Gonna hit a different spot tomorrow for some bigger fish.

      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.

      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!!!
