      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.

We have a cabin on the east bowl and the fishing can be awesome at times! Did really well on pannies with small leeches and slowly drifting across some of the shallower humps! The west bowl is typically better for eyes. I havent found the crappies but have seen some of the ones the neighbor had, and wow were the dandies! Get a good map and find the humps and your sure to find some of the nice sunnies! Also theres a old road bed that tops out around 15 ft that runs from the eastern island towards the sw shore, which is another great spot to start ur search!

I FISH THE LAKE A COUPLE TIMES A WEEK IN THE SUMMER. This last year there were lots of crappies in that 8-9 inch range. Should be some really good fishing for a few years. Plenty of sunnies but you have to sort though them.

Find where the road bed comes out from the old pit landing site and go out to where it turns west. Find some 15-17' of water and watch out for the underwater brush and rip some lips.

Another spot is the second island (from the new public access into the pit) go to the NE side near the point from shore and look for the same depths. There is an old underwater channel (runs 20-24') from the old days of mining that comes up there with a bunch of old brush that produces as well.

Wish I could send a picture with the spots marked for you.

I grew up fishing that old pit then they blew the dam and it got BETTER !

      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.
