      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.

All the resorts fish pretty much the area over Pine Island.

Exactly where their houses are seems to make the difference.

I dont know much about Wheelers Point or where their "area" is.

If you can drive to the house it means it is near the road and

in a busy area if they haul you out in bombers it means they

are off the road in an area they have selected.

You ought to be fine. Most of the outfitters along the strip

there are very good

Just returned home from a week on the ice off wheelers point. Went out on Adrian's road 7.6 miles from Pine Island in 34 FOW. We caught and ate fish every day, and brought home a limit. The small sauger were not a problem, and it was a good mix of Walleye and Sauger. Most of the Sauger were in the 14 -16" range. My wife caught a 31" Walleye on Friday. Just a hair over 11 pounds. Put it back, and will get a blank to mount.

Shiners busted in two, and both pieces on a Gem-N-Eye, or eye dropper worked the best. Glow in the dark pink or chartreuse. Most fish were caught within 6" of the bottom, but watch the fish finder, because about mid morning the fish you see at 10 to 12 feet below the ice are hungry walleye, and were feeding aggressively.

Out as far as we were the bite started at about 8:30 am and ended about 5:30 pm, with the best time between 10:30 and 2:30.

Road conditions are starting to deteriorate, and water is coming through on Adrians road ... the blizzard Saturday and the extreme cold have made the road single lane in some spots. I was glad to have a high lift SUV to get through the wet spots. Some ice build up on the house undercarriage. Just keep moving, don't stop because you lose traction and then you would have a problem. Wigwam would not let people on the ice for their rental houses Saturday because of the white out conditions. Weather forecast for this weekend is warmer.

Be safe out there. You want a contingency plan in case! Hope your wife has a good first outting.

      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.

      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

      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

      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.
