      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.

Official Rules

Minnesota Trout and Bass Fishing League Official Rules

1. The contest will run April 12th 2008 through September 14th 2008. You will be allowed to register your five best fish each month and the total lengths will be added up. Bass are off limits completely until the season opens then start registering. The season for bass opens on May 24th and for largemouth will run through the length of the contest while the smallmouth seasons ends on September 7th so no smallies are allowed to be registered after that date. There will be a separate printout for each month that you will have to have showing in every photo of the fish you register. You will also need to have a clear shot of the fish on a tape measure showing the length clearly so I can judge it. Measurements will be to the nearest ¼ of an inch. The upper 1/8 of an inch will be rounded up and the lower 1/8 of an inch will be rounded down. Here is an example of a printout that you will need(it does not have to be in color but it does have to be identical to the picture that I post if it is not the same printout you will be awarded no points for your fish):

2. You will be allowed to register trout and bass any combination of them up to 5 fish. The options for the trout to be registered are a rainbow, brook, brown, or tiger trout. The options for bass that are able to be registered are largemouth or smallmouth. The largest fish of each species caught during the month will receive a bonus inch point for the contest. So whoever registers the biggest trout(any of the eligible types) will receive a bonus inch for the contest. The one exception to this rule is the brook trout. Due to lower numbers of sized brook trout I feel that people may not target them so much when registering fish. Due to this, whoever has the largest brook trout each month will be awarded 3 bonus inch points. Whoever registers the biggest bass(either type) will receive a bonus inch.

3. Throughout the year the total lengths of the fish will be added up to the nearest quarter of an inch. Standings will be posted after each month of the tournament and kept up to date. Prizes will be given away at random for such things as nicest fish, standings leader, last place in standings, and other oddball things like that.

5. The entry fee for this contest will be $20 with a 90% payback rate and the other 10% of the entry fee going in donation to the Lanesboro area fisheries to assist in the stocking of our streams. Donations are accepted if you wish to sponsor this league in anyway.

6. You are allowed to fish on any stream that you wish as long as it is in Minnesota. I am relying on everybody being honest as far as this goes and hope to see it not taken advantage of. Lake Superior fish will not be allowed for registering for the reason of this is more to get out on the streams and those are larger fish than most people that fish streams will be able to find.

      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!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      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.

      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.
    • Mark
      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.  
    • IceHawk
      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. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
