      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.

What do you have for transportation? Sled or wheeler? If you dont have either you will be at the mercy of the resort for getting around on the lake past any plowed roads. Thats not so bad anyway your there to enjoy yourself so let them do the driving and put you on the fish. If you have your own transportation you can follow the state snowmobile trail (the black sticks) all the way to garden and Oak...Super Easy!

Easy to find when the weather is clear, but make sure you carry a GPS just in case it snows or fogs up. Sleds are the best mode to get out there.

In addition to the GPS I would certainly travel with another and not by yourself. Your post indicated "I" which is singular. Good Luck and hang on. Bill

killit....If you don't wanna haul your sled up Adrians resort will take you up to North side of Big Traverse via track vehicle and set you up in a day hut for a mere 75 beans. Pretty darn reasonable price for sure. That price would also include your bait and the ride back too!

You are right on Fisky. We do it out of Riverbend, let them do the driving. They stay out on the ice all day with us and its a lot of fun for sure. After a few years we've gotten to know the guides, they will swing by the house come in sit down and [PoorWordUsage] and fish for awhile. It don't get much better than that. Bill

I am going with the original poster (killit) 1 sled 1 wheeler will both work? or is it sled only? Any other information would be helpful. We are feeling a bit adventourous therefore would prefer to travel with portables etc. Garden Island or Oak? I have heard that it seems even on slow days fishing is pretty good,and what about these huge jumbo's I've heard about up in the NW angle?

      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!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      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.
