      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.

If anyone is interested(bturk,Davey), there is a tournament on Knife lake this Saturday 2/23. It is being put on by the Crystal Bar&Grill in Mora. It's a scholarship fund tournament in the name of Gregg Jolly who died in the bridge collapse. It's from 12-4:00. Small fee, food, prizes, drawings(included with entry fee), music and much more. I need to rebound from my poor Forest Lake showing. grin.gif

Not exactly crowds. They are confined to a small area( not a good fishing spot). If it's as nice as they say its going to be, then the small tournament will be the least of your concern. Especially if you fish in the the popular areas.

Hey Ron thanks for the information. I may just be able to get up that way. I'll come down the lake to the access from my cabin, red Polaris, I'll be wearing red Strikemaster bibs. Holler at me if I make it. Bill

One other thing are they drilling holes or should we bring the auger? I will probably pull my Clam Voy with me and just set up after the tourney.

Well, I caught two 6" perch during the contest.

There was a 10" min. size to enter fish, no one was able to enter any fish. Good time though for a good cause and what a nice sunny, warm day to be out on the ice.

We caught small crappie and sunnies and perchies. I won a hat and t-shirt. I have never been to a tournament with music that loud! It was kind of fun! I was on the edge closest to the shore. Where were you Dave? Caught fish earlier in the morning elsewhere.

Hey Ron, one of these days we'll meet each other. I was in front of the speakers! More like a party than a fishing contest.

I got a jacket in the drawings. Also had better success before and after the contest elsewhere on the lake, although the crappie size is nothing like it's been in the past. A lot of 6" and 7" in the lake now. Might be a couple years before we see decent size again.

Hey guys sounds like you had fun and some dancing probably as well. Had something come up unexpected on Saturday morning, thought I could pull out in time, but it just didn't work. By the time I would have left St Cloud and gotten up there it would have been past 200pm. Must have been a great day out on the ice though. Bill

      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.
    • 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.
