      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.

Insurance Question

Question

BigWadeS

Yesterday we had our vehicle broke into a park and ride (along with 25 others) and I haven't had to deal with this before. Besides the window being shattered does the vehicle comp coverage, cover what was taken: cd's, auger, & flasher or would I need to file that under home owners? Thanks for any input you may have.

Most auto policies in MN don't have any coverage for non-permanent things like augers and flashers. Chances are those things will have to go on your homeowners. Which usually means a seperate deductible. Auto policies usually only cover things that are permanently attached, like CD players, ect.. Sorry about that happening. It always kind of leaves a sour taste when people do stuff like that. I still get upset everytime I walk past Big Buddy Heaters in a store from when I had one stolen four or five years ago!!

I think this stuff would be covered under homeowners insurance. I had cd's and stuff stolen from my car before and thats what covered it.

Items taken from your car are not covered under the auto policy, as they are not part of the car. Most of the items should be covered under your homeowners or renters insurance policy, but its subject to the policy deductible and it's possible that the CD's are not covered at all if stolen from a vehicle. On the other hand, there's a very good chance the window will be covered without a deductible. Before you file a personal property claim on your homeowner’s policy, make sure you discuss with your agent how this claim may affect your homeowner’s rates in the future. Sorry for your misfortune and good luck!

Agreed, the other posters are correct. I worked in insurance for a few years, and it would be your homeowners policy that covered your stolen goods.

I also had my tackle box stolen out of my trunk, and it was my homeowners policy that sent me on a rampage through Cabelas. \:\)

I would really talk to your agent. Sometimes small multiple claims will get you canceled. Sounds stupid but if you have more then 3 claims in a couple of years your rates will double or they will cancel your policy. Don't konw why but I have seen it done. You might want to eat the 500 bucks you would get after deductable for homeowners.

Comp claims are typically factored into new business rating, and I doubt they are really used to cancel a policy (unless fraud is involved).

It will affect your rates, but only if you have several of them (>3 most likely). But yes, talk to your agent and ask them how rating is affected by comp claims.

Anyone else think it's a bunch of malarky that you pay insurance for years and when you need it you have to worry they will cancel you for using it?

I made 2 claims in 15 years but they were a year and a half apart, they first raised my deductable from $500 to $1000, then 6 months later raised my rate, then I found a new company!

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.

      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
