      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.

Rainy lake fishing report

Recommended Posts

The crappie bite is still going strong, We where getting fish in 34'of water, on the Canadian side.Had to work for them ,jig tipped with a minnow head seemed to work the best.We got a walleye or two mixed in with the crappies, they were to big to keep.I was lucky enough to hook and land a 40"pike on Monday with my light rod.What a battle on 6lb test with no leader. There has been a few reports of crappies coming in from the east end of sand bay.

The Walleye bite has been hit and miss.We had to move around alot ,drill lots of holes to get our fish.The best depth seemed to be around 38'.We fished from birch point to american narrows.

The weather is great the eye's should be turning on soon.

Went down to the shoreview landing on the river today, it is still closed,but look for it to open real soon. The river is up

Plan on putting the boat in as soon as landing opens up.

      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.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      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!
