      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.

Scoot, that cold snap kept us off the lake for some time, however now that the weather has improved we're back at her again.

The action on the lake has continued to remain hot. We're heading out 6:00 AM tomorrow morning and I'll post a report ASAP!

AUGER EXTENSIONS ARE A MUST!!!

Stu, We are coming up in late march and are going to stay at your facilities. For travel we will be bring sleds or sixwheelers depending on the conditions. My question for you is what do we need to bring them across the border? Paper work? Thanks for your help and we are excited.

You don't need any special permits to bring your sleds or ATV's across, as long as they're registered or licensed by your home state.

As for those smelts? Yes please, I'll have good use for them!

In case anyone is wondering why I am posting at this time instead of being out on the lake chasing walleye, here it is. The weather "FORECAST" for today "WAS" calling for windy conditions, combined with adequate snow fall. Unfortunately we decided to alter our fishing plans and take heed in the "FORECAST".....big mistake!

Was out Sat PM. 2 guys, 4 hours, 22 fish 3 over 28". My experiance is not uncommon. Others catching as well. Lake access is a problem for trucks. Quads or sleds it is a breeze.

See you out there this month!

we just need it to warm up a bit so the snow quits blowing around. A couple of warm days should do it, maybe next week........

Ray, I suggest that you haul up your sled/ATV regardless. If the pressure ridge that's been causing so much grief decides to open up again, those who don't have amchines are screwed!

Like Lee stated, the action has been Hot. I haven't been posting on-line for some time now. I've been exploring other (less pressured) area's of the lake and have been enjoying great results! It's a blast whacking loads of quality fish, especially in a area where nobody else is fishing!

We've also been enjoying good results on the river, once again in an area that see's litle pressure.

See you soon...

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.
