      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 would bring an extension. Some ice you will make it through some you wont. Snow pack is fairly deep in some spots. We just got back and had augers with and without extensions, glad we had extensions on.

My friend was up Sunday and where thin snow he couldn't get thru. He had to go to thicker snowpack and shovel down and then he got thru.

Well I'm going to chance it. One of the other guys in our group should have one. What street is everyone going off of?

Whats the recent report out of Zipple? Our spring break is next week and my friend is taking his father and younger sister up hoping she can get her first walleye! Just curious as to depths to target and possibly a couple lure suggestions... Not looking for specific spots, just a couple pointers, Thanks!

We did our best with a plain hook in differnet colors.

Seemed red worked the best then green then glow.

All on deadsticks.

We only caught two fish jigging both on small perch colored jigging raps.

When we were up last week I dead sticked one pole and bounced a jig off the bottom with the other one, it seemed to help. there was 4 of us and the 2 that were in the house next to us didn't do as good as we did bouncing one off the bottom then letting it set for a little while before doing it again.

Yea good idea - those dang extensions take up so much room in the vehicle...would rather chance it and go without and then find out I can't get through and my buddy also decided he didn't have room for his either!

Sorry for the comment, but I see this everytime where people ask about the extension and it just seems to me a no brianer to me...I got mine in the truck right now...it is in my truck year round! Don't get mad at me, I just had to chuckle again and thought I would throw in a little humor...probably very little humor!! \:\)

      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. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      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.
