      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.

Depends on your state of residence. If you're a MN resident, a MN license will do but you cannot buy an SD non-resident license only - you must buy the license of your resident state if you live in either MN or SD. If you're visiting from a state other than MN or SD, it doesn't matter, but the only bait shop around is in Ortonville. Hope this helps. Good luck!

or buds in brownsvalley?? this sounds like a fun deal. Looks like a big field this year; how many participated last year? I think I may need to find a partner. Family cabin is near linden beach, should work great!

It was a full field of 100 boats last year. They decided to raise it to 150 boats this year. That's a lot of boats! It's a great tournament.

Hi Does anyone know if their is any spots left in the tourney. We were going to be in a Green lake tourney later in the year but it was cancelled because of health problems that the director was having and we want to get in at least one this year. Thanks for your replies!

I fished this tournament last year. It was VERY well run and a ton of fun. I was truely surprised at how quickly they got 100 boats inspected and in the water. The tournament staff did a wonderful job at staging, getting boats in the water quickly, and getting boats out of the water. If it wern't for other committments my family has I wouldn't think twice about entering this tournament. I had a blast last year.

The MN vs SD ribbing was good times, also.

      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
    • derbier122x
      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Thanks Cliff

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.
    • PRO-V
      Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.
