      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.

Long Point Report Feb. 2-3

Recommended Posts

Boar

Boy, could not have asked for better weather thats for sure an the fishing was really good for us anyway. 32' of water, Sat started out slow, first fish came at 11:00 am. They started small but by the end of the we had a real nice bucket of saugs an eye's ranging from 15 to 18 inches. I was out visiting an my son an his cousin tended lines, so my son comes out looking for me an I run back an his cousin has a nice 18" eye on the floor. Yea!! great job, rattle reels arnt easy for kids to master, so I take pictures an his dad steps in the house, one more picture an for some reason his dad just has to reach to gill the fish an the kid lets go an his dad dose'nt have it an Yep, thats right, Kersplosh!! Thems the breaks, sometimes its a hard lesson for dads to learn, just let the kid do it. O'well. Sun. proved better yet with the first fish at 9:30, just my daughter this time, right of the bat she hit a 17" saug. nice start an they stayed that way pretty much all day with a bunch of shakers mixed in. My highlight way picking some up jigging on the vex, 19" eye an 17.5" saug. couple of 15's an 16's an shakers. The kids really out did themselves with the rattle reels, old school hand over hand an put fish in the bucket, awsome trip an limited out over the two days. I think what really worked for us was me jigging fish in to the center of the house an the the rattle reels were on the outside perimeter of the set up for the quick meal. Sat. had family to the east of me an they did not catch a fish, move them in to 29 an west of me an same results on Sun. I could have just been on top of them and it was my turn. But then again having the jigging hole in the center of the house with set lines all around it, the fish more often than not will turn to face one of the set line for a easy meal. Now I have a long night of filleting. Boar

Nice job Boar, I like to see a boy from the neighborhood doin

good out there. You fish that area quite a bit so I bet you

have an edge on how to trigger the bites. Them that puts in the

time and pays attention will get more fish(if there are any

around to get).

Say boar does arnesen's still have about 40 houses jam packed to the west side of twin islands? If so I'd say fishing is still decent there and we don't need to go to the reefs yet. take care

      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.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
