      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.

Called a friend who has been fishing there and catching crappies. He said to concentrate on the lower suspended fish. He claims the upper suspended would not bite

Try down west of Best Point, north of the bar, in 22 to 28 ft. If you keep jiging the one that want to bite will raise off the bottom, keep pulling away from them. Sometimes you will have to sort though them, then other times they will be all nice fish. Good luck

If you know what my house looks like, stop in. Starting thursday night to the 24, moving quick and offen, run and gun. I might have to get a new auger before it done.

Same truck, a little whiter with all the road salt. Lets just say I think this weekend is going to be sweet. So much to do, so little time. I may have to go to work Monday to rest

So I should be keeping my eye out for a John Deer on the ice or something? \:\)

Just one last question for ya Ken. Can't remember if I asked this before or not, but how's the ice across the whole lake from west to east? Any trouble spots/areas I should be aware of (besides right up on Willow)? Dangerous over by the river inlet?

Thanks!

Well, I didn't see Ken or anyone I knew out on the lake Friday, but trying to find the 'eyes was a bust. One small slimer and one jumbo, but that was it. Focused hard on inside turns, the tips of points; steep drops, deep basin and shallow water flats, but nada.

Guess I'll have to wait for the opener now. From what I've heard, I maybe should have tried a different lake too.

I think it was just slow - at least where I was. Caught nice fish on Monday when it was cold and windy. Go back to the same spot - tons of fish on the camera on Sat - nothing wanted to bite.

There's another lake where somce nice 'eyes have been caught, espcially at night. But I stuck to my original plan and hit Tetonka. Kind of suprised there weren't that many houses out there. Lots of un-tapped water on Tetonka I'm sure.

And oh by the way....I'd highly doubt that any FM'ers here would do this, so don't think this is directed at any one of you. But to the people that leave garbage on the lake, please refrain from doing so and clean up after yourselves. I picked up countless cans, plastic bottles, cracker boxes, cookie bags, cigarette buts and the like. Just simply bring an empty plastic bag from Walmart or something and put the garbage in there when you're done with it. No need to stomp it into the snow or ice as was the case with much of the garbage I found.

Thanks.

It was fun. Nothing big, 15" to 18" more during the day, few at night. Just a few dinks. All in all I was smiling, but that might have been from the Captain. Still can't understand why people have to drive between houses that are 30' apart with pickup parted between them and nobody on the outsides of them. mad.gif

      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
    • tca12
      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.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
