      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.

Quick Report - 2/1

Recommended Posts

LMITOUT

Made it out this afternoon and had a little luck with the walleyes. I set up in around 10' of water on a point that drops off into the main basin and I had action from 3-6pm using a Northland Eye Dropper with a minnow head for bait. The bobber and jigging rod went about 50/50, so there wasn't much preference in the action. I ended up bringing five through the holes, with two that were keeper size. Not fast and furious by any means, but enough to keep a guy interested. By the time the sun was on the horizon the bite was over, with most of the fish coming between 4:30-5:30pm.

Tried it again this afternoon/evening and pulled up four with only one that was keeper sized. Tried a little shallower and seemed to have action a little longer into the evening. I missed a couple that felt like better fish too. Oh well. Nothing happening on the dead rod today.

You didn't mention the name of the lake you were fishing. (or maybe you just woke up on the couch and were dreaming ? LOL !)

Sorry, the name of the lake is left out to protect the innocent, the lake, and my fishing spot. It's not like it's a "hot" bite that needs to be protected but you know how it goes around here. Somebody hears that a single fish is caught on Lake X and two dozen houses show up the next day and more than likely you're crowded out of your spot just because you wanted to help.

After my fish house was broken into earlier this winter it's hard for me to feel obligated to share much of anything anymore. Leaves a real sour taste in your mouth when it was probably somebody that was fishing right next to you.

But I think we all can post reports as I did and give some people an idea of what is working and what is biting and how deep without revealing the lake you're fishing on. If you wish to say what lake it is then by all means do so, but I would hope that more people would speak up on what they are doing to help others who are searching for a fish or two.

Finding the spot is half the fun! Finding a new spot because you tried to help someone is not.

Im with you 100% lmtout! It seems ur post was rite on with offering info without hurtn your "spot"! I agree after a guys house gets broken into he tends to be alittle more tight lipped on his exact location. Im sick of all the cyber stalkers on here that are looking for nothing but a free hand out, without offering anything in return! Keep the reports coming man, im with you all the way on ur stance!

Oh !! LOL {{{shaking head}}} So you won't name the lake eh? You seem to be a bit incompatable with the flavor of this forum. I for one have posted what I caught, where, and what lake. See "Manuella" thread. I guess maybe I was just too evangelical and wanted others to share in little fun. Oh well, my mistake. I apologize.

Quite the opposite actually. It's not real prudent to encourage a small lake getting pounded by giving out favorable reports and naming the lake. That's the nature of the internet, unfortunately.

Sharing other information such as when, how, and why is just as good, and most of the time can get people heading on the right path to having fun catching fish as well without naming the body of water.

So every lake is built the same all the fish in MN in ever lake will bite in the same depth on the same bait and color? That is awsome, I didnt know that. So if im on bell and im cathing eyes on a blue glow with a crapi minnow in 12' of water and then go to wolf ill catch the eyes there on the same thing in 12' of water?

I guess all you can do is go out and try it to find out.

Everyone complains that nobody shares info, so I try to set an example, and now they complain because I won't give them GPS coordinates to the spot I was on. Sorry I even attempted to help.... Geesh....

Please help:

I'm much too lazy to go out and find fish on my own so I was wondering if someone could tell me of a spot where I can catch 16" crappies and 20"+ walleyes on the same spot, not looking for GPS coordinates, just a specific lake and structure and GPS coordinates would be nice. Like I said I'm too cheap to buy any technology to help me out and am way to lazy to get out there and do it myself. So if someone could broadcast this spot over the world wide web that would be greatly appreciated.

All right guys, here is one of my best spots of all time. I had awesome luck on the corner, were the bar turns 90 degrees. I could routinley catch limts, and threw back a few large ones!! They were just too big to keep!! Check it out.

PS Give the guy a break on sharing spots, not everyone is a cyber stalker searching for spot.

I'm with you there lmitout. I've been on the forum for several years and have seen spots get abused right after there info posted. If someone really would like some info, they can always email offline. As BnD said, there is just too many stalkers out there.

The most important information I look for in a report is structure, depth and presentation. Lake is not important. Those three bits of information will help put more fish in my boat (or on the ice) more than anything.

Very, very seldom anymore do I share the exact lake I was on and the spot I was fishing. Only a couple people on this site, a friend or two of mine (who don't fish often anyway)and then obviously my dad and brother (who only fish with me around here anyway!). \:\)

To simply say "The walleyes are biting" or "I've found'em" is good to hear from an individual, but it doesn't help others out very much. I try to help others know what's working for me, and LMITOUT's report is exactly the kind of info that does help.

      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!!  
    • fowldreams
      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.
    • Flash
      Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"

      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!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
