      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.

I am planning a fishing trip with my father and father-in-law and we are looking for an excellent place to go for in Canada. We are looking for an accommodation that offers the "American" plan. Fly-in or drive....doesn't matter.

Would anyone have any information that they would like to share, where you went, cost, could you bring your own boat, ect.

Last summer my wife and I made a trip to Cedar Lake by Perrault Falls. The walleye fishing was real tough but the other fishermen said it was by far the worst it has ever been for them. We went up the first week of July. The lake was real nice, musky, np, walleye, perch, and sm bass. My wife landed a 42" musky and we had a number of upper 40" follows. The walleye bite was stunted as a result of a may fly hatch, very unstable weather, and the lake rising 3 feet the week and a half we were up there. Cost was $435 but that was the housekeeping plan. Cedar Point Resort - Ray and Kathi were great hosts.

I am wondering the very same thing...price is a big factor for me. I know you get what you pay for there are probably some hidden gems out there \:\)

I'm all ears!

We go for a week to Dogtooth Lake Resort every year. We bring our boats and it normally costs about 600-700 bucks. The couple years i've gone, each of us 4 guys have gotten at least 1 eye over 28" each year. Its not an easy lake to fish, but i think its very classic. Wind and weather plays a major factor on where you find fish. We could probably catch more fish when we go but we choose to target the big females that have left the spawning bays already. Even so last year my friend and I caught 107 walleyes last year in our boat, with 25 over 24".

Thanks everyone for all the great information. Now...one last question....do I need to get a passport to go?

Yes I am about 95% you will need a passport with the tightened border laws. I know that you didn't need a passport just last year for a cruise if you left and returned from, say, Florida. But now you do if you have any port stops.

you don't need a passport yet. Birth Certificate and ID. But you will soon, so you might as well get one..

You can look on the Canada forum for the latest news on whether you need a passport or not. At this point you do not need a passport if you are driving, but do if you are flying anywhere. If you are driving you will need a state ID and your birth certificate. I have been to Canada many times for fishing and was asked just once for my birth certificate along with the state ID. That was in February of this year. The laws are tightened, but not restricted completely for those who have not yet gotten their passport.

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      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.
