      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.

Duluth Bowhunter Education Class

Recommended Posts

cpinkert

FYI, there is another Bowhunter Education Class scheduled for March 12, 19, and 26 at Gander Mountain in Duluth. This class wasn't listed until recently and I was the first one to sign up (they will cancel it if more people don't sign up). The next closest one to Duluth is in Carlton in April I believe.

Anyway, get the word out. If you plan on hunting in the Duluth City Hunt you need this class.

I'm planning on being there. It seems to me I may have taken an advanced bowhunting class years ago. I don't know if that would qualify me for the Duluth city hunt or not. Here is a link to the DNR website with info on statewide bowhunter education classes. I see the 3/12 date but not the others you mentioned cpin, maybe they haven't gotten around to posting them yet.

When I called GM and registered, I was told the class is 3 nights, the 12th, the 19th, and the 26th. Hopefully, I'm wrong, because I really don't want to spend 3 nights on this.

We have some people from Duluth coming to the one at Chilakoot Bowhunters on March 22. This is about a 2 hour drive from Duluth.

The post for this is just a few down from this one.

We could maybe get you all together to car pool for this one day class.

Good idea, but I don't think I would do it. I don't want to kill a weekend on this thing, nor do I want to drive two hours to get to it...

I drove six hours round trip for mine a few years ago. It was worth it to me! There's 10 deer that wish I never did it though.

Take the Bow Ed class even if they may be an inconvience for you at the time, it'll pay off in the long run. Quite a few other states require it if you want to bow hunt them. I'm hoping Minnesota will require it in the future.

Per cpinkert 1st post, you folks that are taking the class just to get into the Duluth hunt, as an fyi, sounds like any new hunters are going to be put on a waiting list to get into the hunt. Heard the hunt is maxed out with hunters. Just relaying what I heard so, if it's true, you don't get too disappointed if you can't get in right away.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      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...

      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!!!
