      Fishing Minnesota has 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. Initially 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 see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then Join Now! Some of the clubs are starting to fill fast.

If it is dead as a Toad on the road? Short answer, about 48 hours.

This info should help ya Slickster.


Connect the charger to a standard 110-volt wall outlet. The red light should come on.
Connect the charger clips to the battery. The red light should go off. Make sure you match the red clip to the positive battery terminal and the black clip to the negative terminal.

Charge the battery until the red light comes back on to full brightness. Then disconnect the charger from the outlet and the battery.
Use only the charger provided to charge this battery. This 12 volt, 1/2 amp charger has been designed to provide the optimum charge for this battery.

Charge the battery after each use. Let it charge until the red LED lights to full brightness. Normal recharge times will be between 12 and 24 hours, but a completely dead battery will need over 48 hours to fully recharge. Do not let it charge for more than 72 hours after the light has come on to full brightness.

Charge the battery at room temperature. If the battery is used in a cold environment allow it to warm up before starting to charge. Cold batteries will not charge.

To store the battery for an extended period of time, remove all devices and store with a full charge. Store it in a cool place and top off the charge every 30 to 60 days.
For faster charging with automatic shutoff, use the optional V300 charger.


Allow battery to FULLY recharge before use. Recharge the battery AFTER EACH USE.

Give cold batteries extra time to charge. Charge at room temperature if you can.

Keep Flames, Sparks, and Metal objects away from batteries and terminals.

If the battery is an open type, add distilled water AFTER battery is recharged.

Keep the battery clean and dry.
Charge periodically during battery storage.


OVER DISCHARGE the battery, You should never drain a battery beyond 80%.

OVERCHARGE the battery. Measure the voltage of the battery while charging. It should never go over 15 volts.

DISCONNECT battery before switching the charger OFF.
Damage the battery or terminals by dropping.

      I took a set of my mother's ear- rings and made lures out of them.. Do not remember if i ever caught anything on them. But they were flashy.

      lakes like Ottertail Lake had 1000-1500 castles on it this year.  we are very concerned about pressure.  good points in this thread that could apply to many other minnesota large lakes.

      I think everyone buying a wheel house and heading out for days at a time is what has really caused fish to move out of the area more than anything.  I think it would be interesting to have the major resorts track the fish cleaned by their guides summer verse winter.  It sure seems to me they take way more people out ice fishing than summer fishing.

      There may be way more pressure in the winter but the harvest is MUCH higher in the summer.  Fish are far more active and feeding heavily in the summer months than they are in the cold water months.  Plus in the summer there is this thing called hooking mortality.  The days of keeping 4 or 6 walleyes and 10 crappies are coming to an end.  Its unsustainable virtually everywhere including a large body of water like LOTW.
