      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.

Hey walleye365, the bite was good Saturday and not as good Sunday but still ran into good numbers of fish Sunday. I described how both days went for us earlier in this thread. If you start at the top of page 1 of the thread and read through it you'll find the info.

Good luck up here and hope you find fish! grin.gifgrin.gif

There's no way to predict how good the laker fishing will be even a day or two ahead, or even today, really. Just gotta get out there and hope for the best and see if the fish are active that day. I've done well in all weather conditions and been skunked in all weather conditions, too.

Hey Tracy, leg lift adds to the action of the swish grin.gif Get a large print of that photo and put it on the wall. A definite "trophy".

Steve, no kidding about the skunk days. Sheesh, I have not hooked into any of those narly trout for some time now. It's odd, when we use to fish off the Gunflint we almost always caught at least one fish or more a day. Some days slow, others snappin'. I know I have put my dues in on the big B. Hopefully the Trout God will transfer credits to Lake Superior this spring and reward me with one of those big Gitcheegumee gals ;\) BC

Well, I gotta admit, its really cool to be able to relive the moments through these SCHWWWEEETTT photos Steve took while I'm sitting at work waiting for the plumber.

I think we might have pricing to discuss there Mr. Catfish. ;\)grin.gif

Opening day this season I picked off that 8.5 lber, then nothing for three more days of fishing. If the laker gods are that demanding, after Saturday, I figure I'm not going to catch another for, oh, 7 or 8 days. crazy.gif

But I think they're a touch more merciful to you Northern guys, so, BC, good luck and I hope you get big returns on your payments!!!

Those laker gods. They defy common sense. At some point you just gotta shrug your shoulders, look at the sky and go: "Yo, laker gods, when is is MY turn?" grin.gifgrin.gif

Wanderer, you have my e-mail. grin.gif

Nice fish and great pictures to go with it. What more can a guy ask for. I wish I would have had someone like Steve with me on Red last Friday. I caught my biggest pike ever ( 40 inches long and fat) and I give my camera to my buddy to take a pic. He supposedly snaps the photo and I put the fish back only later to find out there is no picture. cry.gif

      Begining to think it's going too be a really bad year.  Couples days ago was out, could not get anything to bite, switched up lures half dozen times. Did not help

      Darn you guys!!   How am I supposed to stay at work and pretend to be interested now? There's nothing better than bow hunting turkeys in the spring after a long winter!

      Hey all just a reminder you will need a new license March 1!! Well it looks like we should be ice fishing for another month or more. There is some coming, so if you need to get you house off the lake it might be wise do it now. bites: green crappies, little elk gills sorting but you will catch them eaters, skogman has good from numbers of gills and crappies, and Lori lake for crappies. the turkey fever is starting to set in for me

      Hi @Rick, I'm also looking to take my family out this weekend. I  have a 3/4 ton with a 8x24 ice castle. Was looking at Shields or German. Is it pretty safe with my rig? I know some of these smaller lakes are aerated and can have some soft spots. Just want to be extra safe with the family. Also, the fishing been ok down there? Thanks in advance! Justin

      Hey @jlang_04, i'm looking to take my kids down that area and was curious how's the ice for a 3/4 ton with a ice castle 8x24. I'm sure the ice is thick enough but I also know some lakes are aerated or have current and the ice can be soft in some spots. So I just want to be safe with my family. Also, how's the fishing down there?  Thanks, Justin

      Thanks guys.

      Up until about seven or eight years ago we were on Head-o-lakes bay. Minimal to no Rustys. Just the old school guys with the big blue boxer-mit claws. We were seeing rounded gobies.  We're on Frazer now. Wow! It's indescribable how many of those buggers there are. We've been trying to do our part by having frequent crawfish boils. Haven't made a dent but fun and tasty to try.

      will definitely be hunting turkeys again this year.  Love chasing these birds. Intend to go the archery route this year for the first time.  I have 2 kids that always are excited every year, until a couple of early mornings wain thier enthusiasm!  Figuring archery will allow me go on those days the kids dont want to wake up and I think I have something figured out.  Hope my skills will be up to the challenge.

      I've had very good luck with them also. Always pick some up before heading out on the lake.

      Was thinking about heading up the shore for some open water fishing. Was just wondering if their is alot of ice floating around and if not wat kind of wind would make it difficult to fish from shore? Thanks
