      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.

Where does everybody watch the Super Bowl?

Recommended Posts

Nate McVey

As a restaurant manager for many years, I have had an "argument" with every owner about how to get people into the establishment. With the exception of CO (since everyone there is already away from home), I have had a hard time filling the bar for the Super Bowl. My stance is that most people get together and have parties at someones home or just hang out with roomates, husbands and wives and family. How does everyone here spend Super Bowl Sunday?

I've never watched one at a bar. Even in College where I spent most of my free time in a bar. There always seems to be a party where everyone brings a beverage and something to eat to share. That way you can hear all the commercials too.

60" Plasma HDTV, Lazy Boy recliner, plenty of good beer, NAD/Canton/NHT stereo that kicks. Why would I want to go to any bar and then get a DUI when I come home?

I noticed alot of bars are advertising all you can eat and drink for $25.00, that is a recipe for a dwi. I usually watch the game at home or at a friends house.

I can't wait to show this thread to my boss grin.gif This is what I've been saying all along, I would much rather watch the game in the comfort of my own home with my couch, TV, cheap beverages, TONS of food and good friends.

Good lord shiner! What kind of closed-minded dictator do you work for!?!?!? J/K.

Can't watch the Super Bowl at a bar. Gotta do it at home, like others have said, with good (and cheap) food and drink, good friends, and a place to kick up your legs and make yourself comfortable.

im surprised that nobody has chimed in that has a nice permy with TV's etc. that said they were going to watch the game on the lake. if I could do that, fish and watch the game I would in a heartbeat.

I also have to say I have never been to a bar to watch the game. I will take my comfy couch, HDTV, surround sound and fireplace.

In the comfort of my home in front of the fireplace. I don't have HDTV and all the electronic goodies, but I'll take watching it at home over a bar any day.

My wife and I have the option of three different Superbowl parties. I agree that a bar is great for Monday night football but not the Superbowl.

This year and last year I have borrowed a projector, 100" screen and stereo system and watch the game on that. It is pretty sweet seeing the players in almost fullsized.

At home and having people over. Bars are spendy and too many people.

      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.

      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      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!!!
