      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.

CK's report

Recommended Posts

palisade1kid

The fishing has been tough as of late to find good eaters.

I've hit many lakes over the last month.

I hit Farm Island and worked that 20 fow just of off Camp Good News on the n. side of the lake.

We caught some walleyes ,but the action has been slow.

BSL has been hit or miss.There's a good 3 foot of ice out there so I've been working the whole n.end of the lake.

We picked up a few eyes,perch and crappies along the way.

The narrows has produced many small crappies with a nice mix of jumbo perch and some walleyes.

My best fishing has come from Waukenabo.

The east side has been producing many fish from aquarium size to

slabs.

Nice gills from time to time as well.

As we are sliding in March most lakes will be back to hot again.

Here's some pics from the last month.

I'll add in a few videos as well.

Nice Post, I have never fished BSL for Crappies. I hope to try it in a couple of weeks. What depth do you usually look for.

CK, you always seem to make BSL look like the best crappie lake in minnesota (makes me want to fish up there even more)...I had always heard it known as a good perch and tullibee lake...do you ever fish for them? As nice as crappies are, those other 2 fish would be my motivation for a trip up there.

If I'm able to make it, it'll be the weekend of the 22nd of march. I'm coaching a boxing tournament in the cities that night though...so the question is, am I crazy enough to fish BSL throughout the day and then do the 130 mile drive back home to make it in time for the fights? The answer...I think so.

Hmmm...I was gonna hit some bemidji/cass ice the last weekend of march and am a little iffy about that (even though I've gotten some positive feedback on the outlook of conditions).

What is the ice like on a typical winter around the first weekend of BSL?

Not really.4 wheelers maybe if you can get on the ice.The access sits in direct sun which melts it away.It's not that far of a walk.

Big Sandy Lake.

Walking isn't a problem...that time of year will practically be t-shirt weather anyway. Where is the access located? How many are on the lake?

There is actually 4 public accesses not counting the resorts that you can go through. Fishing has been slow on BSL, can't wait for the late season fishing. Good luck

Nice Calico, Kieth! Maybe this spring I will head over to Big Sandy and try to find the brothers and sisters of the one you are holding! I will let you know? Right now work is a bit too hectic to plan anything other than one day at a time. (your typical NEW BOSS SYNDROME!! Lots of black coffee, Rolaids, and cigarettes!

March and April.We fished up to the 16th last year.

The north side ice on the shore let out to far ,but there is an approach easment a guy can get on that is protected by shade.

The road to get to it is right across from the p r i.

It's a narrow trail that's 40 yards long ,but it's a good spot to get on the Horn.

      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!
