      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.

They sure are!!! I'll be hunting zone 19 again from May 7-11. Last year was my first year, so I'm even more pumped this year. I made a few landowner contacts down there last spring, so that will broaden my horizon's a bit more!

bmc, same zone, same time as you. We also got a couple new spots that got me really excited about this year. Two of us shot a 23 & 25 pounder last spring. grin.gif

DonBo,

We should try to meet up during our season for some dinner or something. I hunt near Baldwin and stay at my brother's in Hudson. Sounds like you guys got some awesome birds last year!!!

I've heard that applying for non-res tags in May gives you an excellent chance on drawing a tag, have you had luck trying to draw a tag for an earlier season? I see paintbrush drew for the season before us and he's from Brainerd.

bmc, I've drawn every year in 19. We usually apply for the season before this, the Wis. fishing opener. However, the last couple years the activity has been slower earlier in the week and has picked up later. Can't explain it, just the way it is.

We hunt south of Spring Valley, near Elmwood. We camp at the Nugget Lake campground East of Ellsworth, SW of Elmwood.

I hope you're not hunting too near Baldwin as that is not in zone 19. blush.gif

Stay in touch if you want to hook up. Email address in my profile.

I'm actually south of I-94, which is the boundary line. But thanks for the heads up! Do you guys usually shotgun hunt or bow hunt? I'd be interested in talking strategy w/ you as it sounds like you have hunted this zone/time frame in the past.

Thanks,

Brian

I pulled season E (May 14th-18th). I like those dates if the spring weather plays itself out properly. Plus, I am clear for MN fishing opener for once.

      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!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!
