      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.

(Sweet) Fishing Report - 3/11

Fisherman For a Lifetime

Went out of Bayport and went north to meet Big Jeff and then Fish-n-sticks (sorry, spelled wrong I bet). Later Wall-i-king showed up for a while. What a great bunch of guys!!!!

Big Jeff had the hole & the jig. He pulled up several keeper sized Crappies. Fish-n-sticks caught a couple, but one sure was tiny... grin.gif Come to find out at the end we went to High School together and in the same Homeroom.

I was skunked for the longest time and was already hearin' it, how the posts "would" have been.........

Ah, then, when it was looking so bleak, like I was gonna get skunked and humiliated on this site:

Down went the bobber. I set the hook hard and the reel was screaming so I tightened up the drag when the rod was high keepin' the tension there.

Big Jeff kindly ran over. I caught a 15 1/4" Crappie! 15 1/4"!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

What a feeling! I was VINDICATED!!!!! WOO-HOO!!!!!

Took a cell phone picture next to a 10" keeper Crappie. It looked like a dwarf.

She was a P I G. 5 3/4" high with a 2 2/3" high Mouth.

Wow. I still have my reputation.

Hey! It's eyesnfries! not fishnsticks! You guys are a hoot. Had a great time fishin and meeting some fellow FMers. Big Jeff schooled us with the numbers but Fisher for a lifetime got the same poundage in 1 fish! Man what a piggie! That's why I like the river.

We'll have to keep an eye on the ice for Sun.

Good luck up north Jeff!

Well what a day on the ice, very nice out but a little shaky on the ice, its is still thick, some where finding 32 inches but in a couple of my holes I found 24" or a little more, must be the current of a spring.

Nice to meet! Wall-i-king, Fisherman For a Lifetime, and eyesnfries. All good guys and man do they like to watch me catch fish! ;\) Now seriously everyone was getting a couple but Fisherman For a Lifetime and he was feeling the pressure of the fellow FMer's out there, having nightmares about how the post where going to be written today. He was working hard but they just where not being friendly. Then just as it getting a little dark I see him run over and grab his pole and start reeling, sure enough he pulls the monster of the day out and I am feeling a little inadequate with my pile of 7 all over ten. Good work Fisherman For a Lifetime!!!!

Not going to make it out until after the weekend heading off to chase the northern MN crappies. Good luck on the ice and good to meet all of you!!!

I do hope to make it out next week sometime so if you would keep me up to date I would appreciate it! Thanks

Glad you got the pic for proof, I just got beck from the boarder country Fishing for a lifetime and we had some good times, first day the group brought 48 keepers home, average was around 11" but some 9-10 but also a lot of 12-13 and 2 14" Sunday the group was smaller but the fish where not as active either. We brought 21 back but they where a little smaller on average but still some very nice fish caught both days. Its always fun when you can fish then eat a fish dinner then fish eat a fish lunch and stil send 4 guys home with limits. Good luck one the ice hoping to get out and chase them a little more before the ice is out

      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!
