      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.

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Yep, if you stay away from shore where the snow is a bit deeper. You can actually drive down the public landing off North Arm Road (you get to it up the Echo Trail), if and only if they've plowed it out. Some years it's plowed but others it's not, and I haven't been up there to look this winter.

If you want to drive across the lake to the North Arm you'll have a shorter drive off Van Vac than from Bside Lodge.

Highway2Allstar,

You can drive from Burntside Lodge to the North Arm, BUT when going through the narrows, stay to the left (west) side of the island with the cabin and the next island north, which is all rock.

DO NOT DRIVE ON THE EAST (RIGHT SIDE) OF THESE ISLANDS!!!!!

You will go through the ice, cause it's always bad in that spot.

You can never get the Slovenian (Bohunk) out of you, as unfortunate a situation as that is. \:\(

Try to hold your head high, even though you know deep down that an Amoeba is a higher form of life.

Fortunately, you have some good Finnish blood to help bail you out! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Oh, G.O, I have a certain degree of vertical challenge myself, and ya know I mean it in the best possible way when I say you aren't much taller than an amoeba yourself. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Imagine, a Range Finn ripping on a Range Slovenian. Some things never change. Either of you ethnics got any useful information about fishing to share? grin.gifgrin.gif

Yeah, use anyone of Irish descent as shark bait grin.gif

The Bohunk comment was on the, shall we put it nicely, "thinking process" of the individual, not stature. \:D

Of course, that would put you in the equation also! grin.gifgrin.gif

Well, it would put me in the equation partly because I'm only 5-8 and partly because I'm part Bohunk myself. grin.gifgrin.gif

Steve,

I'd try to downplay that part Bohunk thing, if you catch my drift! ;\)

Sigh.

Anyway, back to the original topic, there's been some drifting on Burntside but the drifts out in the open are scattered, and I had no trouble driving around them today. Never went through more than six inches of snow.

Closing at 5 tomorrow night.

Give me a call if you're on the road, though I'm sure that cel phone service isn't too good coming up through Isabella on Hwy 1.

If you're getting close to Ely about 5, I can hang around the shop.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.
    • mrpike1973
      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!  
    • fowldreams
      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.

      Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"

      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!!!
