      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.

Push down the fat guy next to you and run like the wind. If you just found yourself looking down at your stomache, then yes you are the fat guy.

That thing is a monster. I highly doubt it was completely wild though. Release job? Still it would tear you up.

Dckasten was that supposedly a wild cougar? I'm prertty sure it's never been reported that anyone has been killed by a wild cougar in Minnesota. Could be wrong though. That one in the picture certainly is huge if it isn't photo shopped.

I don't know about the weight or anything. But googled the story about it. The email i received said the cat was killed in Steeleville MO. After futher research, i found that the cat was actually killed around Seattle in 2002. So from what i have found, its not photoshopped. Wish i could find more info on the kitty but found nothing. will keep researching for it.

Got this info from Bonne and Crockett Trophy Watch.

This photo was posted on Trophy Watch in 2003 and again in 2004. It seems the photo has been regaining new life as the email rumor mill starts up again. A few years ago it was rumored to be from Kansas, Iowa, Texas, and Pennsylvania. This time it was taken by a deer hunter in Missouri while it was stalking him in his stand.

The truth is that it was taken in King County, Washington in December 2002 by Roy Hisler with one shot from a .30-06. His partner, Jim Hackewitz, used a varmint call to bring in the big cat – taken within 6 miles of Bellevue, Washington (a major suburb of Seattle). The cougar was accepted into the 25th Big Game Awards at 15-7/16.

Got some good info on this cat. Weighed 190#, had an empty stomach. The Official measure of 15 7/16" is a combination of length of upper skull and widest part of skull.

The current world record is a 16 4/16" skull. They don't go by weight.

Here is a site that has some good info and corrections, and two links to other info: prairiestateoutdoors.com/index.php?/scattershooting/article/missouri_mountain_lion

There is an additional photo with the paw spread, and it looks wider than the mans head! eek.gif

Another site with a 16" scored cougar, 218#. It looks more like a regular big cougar only wrinkly.

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff

      Anoka county union says it is opening in the sports authority building in Coon Rapids. Cant Wait!

      I've found it interesting that the past couple years we haven't seen quite the numbers of rustys on our beach in the summer. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There were a lot of cabbage beds on the North side of Pine Is. and on the far East end of Big Bay. Gone now! Cliff

      I never guarantee safety. Others in similar position are out on Shields. I would assume German is the same. I would do it just not telling you to do it.

      I have a skid house on Mille Lacs, the yellow perch has is no joke, camera all day long perfect sized perch for them to eat. The walleye numbers are strong, regardless what dnr says. The tough bite this year does kind of stink, but it's good for the lake. Every fish you catch is nice and healthy, and as previously stated usually big. We have been fortunate enough to get a couple slot fish (unicorns) out this year
    • FishinCT
      Just out of curiosity where were the cabbage beds on the east end? Rustys have been infested ever since we started fishing the east side

      shiners or suckers

      The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.
