      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.

Wedding on ice

Recommended Posts

Afternoon everyone--

Check this out. This afternoon my wife and i were coming home from Woodbury. As we were passing Lake Jane, we noticed a slew of vehicles on the ice. As we passed the access i noticed a sign by the access to the lake. I decided to drive down to the lake and see what the sign said. It said: "Wedding vehicles only this way >>>". Go figure, someone must have been having a wedding on the ice.

That is freakin cool. Great idea. Wonder if the bride and groom had holes drilled at the "alter"? Someday when I get decide to get married, thats what I want to do.

That's pretty cool, but talk about a potentially tragic headline in the papers!

About 12 years ago I met a young couple on Mille Lacs Lake. They had just gotten married a year before. She was a memeber of that WOMENS FISHING CLUB in Minnesota and they had met one weekend while her club was visiting Mille Lacs for a weekend of fishing and fun.

Anyway they got married a year later and spent their wedding night in his fish house. Next day they flew off to Las Vegas for the rest of the honeymoon.

A little over a year ago, I got married on the ice. Well...It wasn't "technically" the ice because there wasn't enough ice to be safe. We were right on the pier near Fisherman's Inn on Lake Zumro. Friday was nice, sunny and 33. Saturday started nice-20's and the temp's went down and the wind picked up as the day went. Wedding was at 3 and the temp was 11 and 15+mph. So, it sure was a quick ceremony, about 7 minutes. However, the following weekend it was 20 below zero!! We got quite a few calls saying "glad it wasn't this weekend!"

It was a great time and quite the experience!! One thing I know is if anyone wants to do it this way-people will be willing to cut you deals becuase of the uniqueness of it.

This was on the news last night and I did kind of chuckle when they showed one of the guests had a tip-up in a hole next to his chair!!! Imagine when the minister says speak now or forever hold your peace and you yell "FLAG UP"!!!

      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.

      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!!!
