      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.

Im not going to list everything you will need for your trip but there are many good Bwca books with lists in them and if you do a search on Bwca camping you should find a camping check list.

I will say make sure you rent or get good bags. Duluth bags are my favorite.

Surface Tension

Fishing rod and bait. grin.gif

Everything will need to be in a pack. Duluth Packs are designed to haul very large loads for short distances. Thats the type packs you'll want.

Rods and extra paddle gets lashed into the canoe.

You'll need water, forget boiling water, get a filter.

I bring live bait for eyes. Leeches are easiest, just keep them cool.

A light weight rain fly.

Lots of parachute cord.

First Aid kit.

A sturdy, deep lugged, non insulated boot for the portages. Army boots IMO are the best boot made. Your second shoe can be anything non insulated.

Sun screen

Bug dope

Medicine(prescription) and let your members now what your taking.

Nylon stuff sack for an anchor

i agree with surface tension...except for a couple of things...the "optional" by sleeping pad...sleeping pads with make all the differnce in getting a good nights rest in the rocky ground of the b-dub...bring one..you will need it. you will also want something to protect your food from bears. there are plenty of black bears out there that love to get into your food. they are not going to bother you, just your food. they have bear safe containers at all the outfitters..or you can rig up a "bear hang" with ropes and pullies. it is no fun to have all your food munched on by a bear.

hope that helps

The best anchor I have found is a basketball net tied off on 1 end and toss rocks in it and then tie your rope to the other end loops. Works awesome. Bring 2 they are light. A clip on your rope end makes it easy to unclip and dump the rocks out so you dont have to lift it in the boat if you dont want.

Also some pulleys and rope to tie your food up in a tree to keep bears out.

Looks like Surface tension doesnt need rope or pulleys to keep bears away. Hes packing a large caliber handgun \:\)

just teasing. I like guns too.

I have never needed a gun in the Bwca. Bears and moose usually run away with some pots and pans smacked around or a good placed rock.

Hopefully there will never be a crew of idiots like they had up there last year to have to worry about defending yourself from.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
