      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.

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am wondering what is the best glo lite. I am using a Lund white lite and my husband is using a Tazer blue lite. What is the best and why?

Since you are from Chisholm, go to the L & M in Hibbing and at their check-out counters they have a nine LED flashlight for under $2 that works awesome. Runs on three AAA batteries and since it is LED it runs for a long time. Very bright light and compact.

Thanks for all the info. I will still use the one I have. You could try using one of the strech cords you get form a casino to attach to you glo lite. They work great for us, as you can attatch the to something so if it falls in you can still get it. Thy attatching it to your shirt of jacket.

One of the best lights I've found for charging jigs was at a garage sale an was an old Minolta camera with a strobe flash holy smokesdose that thing light them up, but if you take a direct hit in the eyes from the flash you might as well take a nap cause you wnt be seeing anything for awhile. Boar

I have been using my old Minolta flash for charging glow stuff for several years. But no longer since the Upper Red Lake Triangle decided it wanted it more than me and made it jump out of my hand and into the hole. The next morning I took my camera and saw it comfortably resting on the bottom. No way to retrieve it though. \:\(

I have always attached the glo lite, my forceps, and clipper to a Northland lanyard that I put around by neck. You could use a shoe string or any other material for that matter. Everything is attached so nothing is going down the hole. It works good and is always at my disposal. Good luck, hang on. Bill

I kill 2 birds with one stone and use an led flashlite so my glow charger was free! I don't think I've charged anything glow this year outside of just 1 particular day on the ice, and this would be out of about 30 trips onto the LOTW ice sheet this season so far since Dec 1. That particular day I tried the red glow folks speak so highly of, hmmmmmm....I caught 1 Walleye right away, fished with it for another 1/2 hour without a nibble then 2 back to back rather large Burbot....Enough with that color for the day and probably for the season! Has been a good color for me on URL years past for them Slabbers though.

This year the Perch/FT gold back AEjr has been 9 outta 10 go to on Jig stick. Deadstick exact same color in a 1/16oz Frostee. Last year I ran Pink and White pretty steady all season. So give me Perch/FT, P&W, and of course straight Golds and I'm usually good to go. I'm thinking maybe the Red Glo that folks like so much is maybe better on the eastside for the deep and sometimes oh so shy basin Saugers maybe? I don't doubt folks with their reports on that color but speaking with ccmonsr a couple weeks back and then SRJ yesterday we kinda pretty much agree on that red glo thing and the 3 of us all fish the pond fairly often.

Quick question. How long are the AEjr's? Compared to the bigger size? I just got some in the mail today, and they are bigger than I expected.(1 5/8 inches) I thought they sent me the wrong size? or are these the jr's? Thanks

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
