      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 have been watching all the posts, but can't figure out which day I should go out this week. I have the whole week off and want to get my son on the lake. Has anyone got a report of how the waves are like the past few days? N.O.A.A. says it will blow about the same everyday out of the East, Northeast. Just trying to save a few bucks on fuel (so I don't have to turn around mad). Thanks! BC

I just looked at the weather and Friday or Saturday look like the best days. IF THE FORECAST IS RIGHT, Saturday would be my pic.

Thats what I am hearing also. Unfortunatley, my son will be with the scouts in the B.W.C.A. at that time, so he would miss out.

Maybe Thursday if the wind lays down. BC

For you I hope she's nice. I live twenty some miles away from her and can't even begin to tell you how many times over the years we have been shut out. She's tempermental, just ask the local forecaster's whistle BC

My son sure is Randy. He hunted the youth hunt last fall and shot his first two ducks ever. We will not be going to Canada this year, but will hit it hard here in Minnesota. Might plan a trip back to Winnie, it's been a few years. How about yourself? I suppose ya got plans for the river again. We were just downtown and the big pond had one footers with quite a bit of chop. I plan on running there early in the a.m. to see if she will let me try and take a few of her bounty wink BC

Dang right it is man. CONGRATS! Thats a fish of a lifetime for many many people dude. Make sure you put that one on the wall it looks massive even in the pic.

I may head out today and try to catch it again or one even bigger. My wife would $#@! herself if she caught one like that. Heck I might. grin

Oh and GOOD JOB on releasing her for someone else to catch some day.

By the way did ya see my 33"er swimming with her by any chance? Some day some day.

Got out this morning and launched at Mcquade at 6:30am. Two fish on, two fish off right away. Fished a total of eight hours and got only one more bounce on the rod, to no avail. Beautiful day until the N.E. wind started to show. Back at the launch three other party's had similar luck, two hit's and one fish, one small laker and lost a large one that broke line. Overall the fishing appeared not well. We tried meat on flies behind flashers, spoons with dodgers, clean spoons, heck we even threw a 57 chevy bomber at them. Not good. Not much for marks down below either. I hope you guys do better than we did for this coming weekend. I will probably bow out for a while after this one. Gas is having a lot to say over my decision also. Godd luck. BC

Marine General had a batch of custom 57 chev Brads made up and I got a few along with the reverse 57's. I think they still have some left but lots of the custom colors are gone already. Call them and see.

Last I heard they were out of the 57 chevy's for this season, but are taking names/pre-orders? for a batch to be made for next year. Word had it that they brought in 400 in 2008? and all were spoken for over at least 2 months ago.

Makes sense. Therefore I have 10-57 chev Brads going for $25 a pop. Just jokin guys. wink

get on the list now because they do move fast. I do find that the reverse 57 works just as good at most times though.

      There were a lot of cabbage beds on the North side of Pine Is. and on the far East end of Big Bay. Gone now! Cliff

      I never guarantee safety. Others in similar position are out on Shields. I would assume German is the same. I would do it just not telling you to do it.

      I have a skid house on Mille Lacs, the yellow perch has is no joke, camera all day long perfect sized perch for them to eat. The walleye numbers are strong, regardless what dnr says. The tough bite this year does kind of stink, but it's good for the lake. Every fish you catch is nice and healthy, and as previously stated usually big. We have been fortunate enough to get a couple slot fish (unicorns) out this year

      Just out of curiosity where were the cabbage beds on the east end? Rustys have been infested ever since we started fishing the east side

      shiners or suckers

      The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.

      Hey all, Heading to Mille Lacs tomorrow.  What has been the hot bait?  Shiners, fatheads??? Flash "Set the Hook"

      There are notes in some of the other recent LOTW posts on Knights/Bridges reefs.  I have no personal recent experience to share at this time.

      Our group is coming up March 10-13 this year instead of the typical mid-Feb trip.  We usually hit the reefs/islands in Feb with reasonable success, so I'm curious if that pattern is going at the moment.  Never fished LOW in mid-March, so we're not exactly sure how to approach things.  The current reports sound a bit slow at the moment, which probably isn't all that unusual for this time of year.  If anyone has any first hand knowledge of the reef/island bite, you can either response or PM me.  Thx.

      I like to fish a frozen shiner along with a live fathead on a single hook.  Even though the shiner is dead, I think the movement of the fathead creates the illusion that it's a live shiner.  It's worked for me many times anyway and it's usually better than either a frozen shiner or fathead by themselves.
