      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.

Guys, the state pool tourney is at the DECC this weekend and looking for breakfast advice--preferably big and cheap. Either Duluth or Superior. Any thoughts on a good steak also? Looks like the weather will be mighty nice Sat-Sun. Hope I can keep my mind off fishing for a couple days.

Thanks for any tips.

For steak theres Red Lobster, Timberlodge steak house, Outback, Blackwoods and Hammond steak house in Superior to name a few. If your looking for a place to get some practice in theres Mr.Luckys pool hall in Superior and Horseshoe in west Duluth. Good luck in the tourney.

As far as steaks go you cant beat the Hammond for price and value. Timberlodge is way pricey and over rated in my opinion.

Good luck in the Tourney. Ran why aint you shootin in it man? Get a partner as good as you and you could do some damage. Is it team or partners anyway? Might be hard to find a team all as good as you are I guess.

I also preferred the Hammond for steak back when I lived in Suptown, and Louis had great breakfasts.

Louis is no longer in "Souptown". There is a place on Belknap across the ave. from the Freedom gas station that has great breakfast. I think its called Julies? Also good lunch and dinners. Good prices and good service last time I was in there.

Good luck fishing this weekend.

Yeah, got that checked out. I see you post on LOW and Rainy R time to time. Maybe share a brew with you up there some day, eh. A brew sounds good right now--peeling wallpaper and hating it. A bit more of that and then time to knock some balls around on the 9 footer, head for Duluth tomorrow, LOW on Wednesday to see how my house looks out on Long Pt. It will be kinda drifty I'm sure.

I love the Rainy River in the spring and fall. LOW rocks all year. We should hook up some time. Ill be in Bayfield/Ashland all this weekend though. Maybe hook up and Fish the river in the spring?

Sounds good. I fish the river quite a bit--weather permitting--arthritis in the fingers and hands makes for a long day if it's cold (unless I'm a passenger). I pretty much fish LOW every week--got a little cabin inbetween Walleye Retreat and Cyrus. Should be able to figure something out. Got a comfy boat-Yarcraft Storm BT equipped to do bait, downrig or flatline. Anchor too.

Let's stay in touch--always like fishing with FM'ers anywhere.

Let me know when a good time is to come up and join ya in the best walleye lake around these parts. Sorry Rainy Lake Guys but LOW is #1 in my book for size and numbers.

Now Northlander why do you have to go saying that? j/k cool.gif I will agree with you on the numbers, but Rainy does have the size...especially in the winter and for a few weeks in early July.

T.L.--I sneak over to Rainy a few times a summer and I have to agree with you-the average size is awesome. Numbers are good too. However, the number of 10 lb plus fatties LOW puts out is unequaled for a MN drive-to-lake. And the scenery.........big water is awesome but islands are special. Rainy wins the beauty division hands down (at least comparing to LOW south side). Gotta love both those lakes. I feel very fortunate to have two world class fisheries within a couple hours.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      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.
