      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.

Anyone know if the aerator on Cody lake is still cooking? Stopped by saturday on the way home from Mazaska and drilled a few holes, it was one of the worst smells I've smelled in a while and I still have a kid in diapers!! sick.gif Dropped the camera and didn't see anything dead or alive. We walked over by where the aerator was and instead of open water there seemed to be at least 6" in of ice and far as I cared to walk. I also dropped the camera down here as well and still saw nothing. As we left I noticed that phelps on the other side of the road has been opened to unlimited fishing. I sure hope it isn't freezing out but that smell was horrible and can't be good.

It was shut off because it was going to winter kill and by shutting it off hopefully it will make it a complete kill instead of just keeping the rough fish alive.

Sounds like (mostly)everything has already died on both of the lakes.

Anyone know what the plan usually is after a winter kill? I e-mailed the DNR but have not heard back from them yet. The lake can obviously hold a population of fish as I have had good luck out there since moving down here, at least early ice season that is. I'm wondering if the stock the full gamit or just selected species. Hopefully I'll get a response out of the waterville office but if anyone else has any idear, let me know. Hopefully this took care of the rough fish as well.

They will stock adult perch adult crappie, bluegill and a lot of walleye and northern fry plus what are club will spend on fish also. I believe it will not winter kill all the carp. We will try everything in our power to get this lake back to what it was. Trust me

Whoa? Liberized? I didn't expect that. I guess this Winter must've really been harsh on Cody & Phelps. It's one of my favorite Spring lake combo's. Too bad. Hopefully within a few years again.

      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.

      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.
