      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.

Take time to hug your family!! Bus tragedy

Recommended Posts

fishinchicks

The bus my kid's normally would ride is the bus that is on the news right now. We only know that two of our cousin's kids are in the hospital, but the third one is ok. There was at least one student killed today.

For those of you who are the praying kind, there were 40 kids on that bus, and a couple of other cars involved. They could all use all they prayers they could get.

You had better believe that I have hugged my daughters today! I picked them up from school about the time the fire department went out.

It is with a heavy heart that I type right now. Our cousin's child, our godchild, was the student who was killed in the bus accident today. She was adopted from China as a 10 month old, and was currently in fourth grade. She will be missed!

Our kids also go to Lakeview and thankfully wern't on that bus route. Several of their friends and classmates were however. It seems one more may have died and some more flown out. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the kids and their families. Don't forget to hug your volunteer fire and ambulance crews also, as they put their lives in danger and on hold in tradegies like this.

We have heard about the others. There are two brothers who are both gone, and one other boy. Two were 7th graders, one a 5th grader and our godchild a 3rd grader (I mistyped her grade before). Our cousin's boy that was injured is on his way to Sioux Falls by amb. to get some possible glass removed from his eye. He also has a broken finger, and multiple bumps and scrapes on one side. We are thankful he will be alright.

Thanks for the prayers everyone! I believe that is the only thing keeping the family going right now.

Carolyn, to say I'm sorry would be an understatement in the worst way. I'm at a loss for words for your families loss. My condolences, and prayers go out to your family and all involved.

My kids were supposed to have a game there tonight. I found out about it when my oldest son called and said their bus got turned around, and then told me why.

If you, or your family want or need anything, my e-mail is in my profile. Do not hesitate to contact me.

I just got chills when I read this. I can't tell you how bad I feel for you and your family. I will be thinking of you. I'm also on my way to pick up my daughter and will give her a huge hug.

As said before, children should never pass away.

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.

      this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area? 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.

      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!
    • Rick
      I hear the panfish are kicking it up a bit? Any word out there?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      awesome feedback! thank you so much for the info! Ill get up ther next year, i dont want to keep any i just want to catch some nice eyes and northern.....hell, whatever! ive been in a sleeper 5 times on LOW and we only had one real good trip. upper red lake once in a sleeper caught 3 eyes in 3 days. i dont mind if i catch one or two fish, its all about the experience for me on the big water. but the girlfriend is a hard one to convince at times for a return trip if the fishing is slow. were headed to fairbault this weekend, i hope we get into something. thanks again guys! ill post a report on our trip. good luck on the ice!

      Well who else is going after long beards this spring? I was drawn for season B again no surprise. There were surplus tags left as there were last couple years.  Really like the new approach to not having to apply for the later seasons spreads the hunters out and gives guys like me the opportunity to get after them early   Been out doing some scouting and been seeing some big wintering flocks one I was glassing other day had over 60 birds in it! They have really been working over the picked corn lately.  Oh cant wait to hear the first gobble of the year

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff
