      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.

Has anybody shot the new PSE X Force SS, I did shoot the X Force last year and it was NICE.

The new SS is extremely short only 26" axle to axle with a brace height of around 7".

Just wondering what you all think?

I am going to try to go shoot it here soon at a local archery dealer.

Short bows are the thing now days... I hate em.. but its not a problem with the bow. its a problem with me.. I am 6'3".. and have a wing span of someone who is 6'6"... so short bows the peep site gets so far away from me I cant see anything..

PSE makes good bows.. shoot it and let us know what you think!

i just set up my new bow, its the longest A to A bow I have ever shot, and by FAR the most accurate I have ever shot..

I have the opposite problem dietz. The standard measurement says I should be a 29" draw, but mines is 27.5" Short arms with broad shoulders...... Oh well.

I don't know that I would like a bow that short, but who knows. I am interested in shooting the Xforce in my quest for a new bow.

A couple of years ago I thought about getting rid of my mechanical release and go back to shooting fingers. The axle to axle length is getting so short that my fingers were getting pinched between the string and the arrow. It was too hard to get a smooth release off so I just stuck with the mechanical release.

With all of these short bows on the market, people are nearly required to shoot a mechanical release.

I just got back from the deer classic and there was a couple of booths that had the new X-FORCE "ss" this is a sweet bow. I thought it had a smooth draw, rock solid wall and a great feeling handle. It was super quiet and had no vibration. If I didnt buy a X-FORCE last fall I would have bought a "SS" today. I watched alot of jaws hit the floor today, nobody could believe how nice it shoots. If you go to the classic this weekend you could test fire one there.

      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

      There is a bunch of walleyes in Mille lacs and for the first time in a long time there is  bait fish for them to eat. Mille lacs is a son of a gun to fish if there is a bunch of bait for walleyes to eat. It’s still one the best walleye fisheries in the world.

      Wait until open water season.  It was ranked #1 in the country for bass for a reason.  Its also ranked #6 in the nation for muskies too if you have enough patience to target them. A recent review of Mille Lacs was conducted by an independent Biologist from Lake Erie and found that what the DNR has done with that lake has been fair, accurate, and appropriate in terms of regulation/harvest/restrictions.  Course, some business owners might say otherwise but the science and data has been found to be true.

      I did not draw an early season permit.  I may be able to snag a surplus season B, otherwise it will be a later season for me this spring.  The birds are getting SMART.  They have refused to listen to any calls and they are decoy shy so I haven't been using calls or decoys for a while now.  Rather, I just sit there and wait on a travel route and hope they walk within range (sort of like deer hunting I guess).  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Scouting is obviously important.  What has also really helped is the use of Winchester Longbeard XR ammo.  I have harvested turkeys out to 60 yards with it in recent years.

      Found out we will have up to 17 guns up for grabs. Plus all the of other prizes. That does not include the 3 guns in the 3 gun raffle. The 3 gun raffle tickets must be purchased before the banquet, so let me know if you need some they are 5 bucks each.
