      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.

Latest report?

Hey guys. Does anyone have a recent report? I was up there last Sun-Tues and fishing was pretty slow. We fished in depths from 34-22 FOW off the Morris Point and Adrians roads. We will be heading back up there this Sunday and was just looking for a report. Has it picked up at all? What depths have been producing the best fish? The fish moving shallower with small fish being caught deep? Any help or suggestions would be great. We will be going out of either zipple, morris, or adrians depending on the reports. Thanks in advance.

If you want to catch fish I think you have to go across to Garden or Starren Shoals. We were there last weekend and did really well. Released some nice walleyes and caught a pig northern. Fishing was pretty darn good for late Feb. We took sleds across on the groomed trail, well worth the 40 min ride.

South side is slow right now hope it picks up in March!

or you can just go to zipple in 30ft and catch fish all day long with some mix of some very nice fish.the shallows will be turning on pretty soon for some big eyes and big pike.

Fished Adrian's road Tuesday - Thursday afternoon, sleeper in 29' caught maybe 5 fish the whole time. We portabled out to 34' or so, about 6 miles past pine island and did slow there too. From past experience I'd suggest Zipple like others have said for better late ice fishing.

Our group of 30 fished up by the reefs out of Wigwam Feb 26 and 27. We averaged about 2, with alot of saugers. We were in about 28 ft of water. Seemed like going small was the key with a light bite. Main time 11am-1pm. One guy got a suspended 29 incher as he was lowering his line down.

We had fun and the food was good.

We had a group of 6 up for 4 days, we each brought home a limit and ate fish on two nights. Probably threw back twice as many as we caught. Fished both deep and shallow, saugers out deep and the walleyes and bigger saugers where in shallower. We stayed away from the crouds and generators, fished pretty hard and steady in portables and moved many times during our trip. Went out of Wheelers point. She went back down the hole to be caught again.

12 of us just returned from our stay at morris point with very poor results. fished anywhere from 25 - 32 out off their road and only kept a few. some of us headed out of adrians on sunday and some out of graceton beach and both places were slow. We ran into a few guys in the bar who told us they were nailing the fish out by garden island but with the snow on sunday we didn't want to try heading out there. They had a lot of walleye and sauger and also a 44" pike. The people at the resort were great and we had a good time at night in the lodge so I'm sure we'll be back next year with hopefully a little better luck.

mnfishinguy,

What depths do you mean when you say shallow and deep?

Deep is 33-35 feet for post cold front fishing and shallow is less than 24 depending on what the weather is doing. As you can see from the pics we where out by ourselves and it was the best year we have ever had. Tried a few different things, some worked some didn't but having six guys and four houses you can really spread out your attack and find patterns that work.

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.
