      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.

Glass Jigs?

Question

Fish-n-Freak

I thoought there was a string on these -- but, I couldn't find it?

Just bought another handful, and talked to the manufacture directly -- met him at Angler's Paradise on Hwy 10, dropping off another supply -- these jigs are really something! The glow last forever and the very light weight delivers a very natural presentation. They come in a bunch of colors. Green, yellow, Pink, Red, Purple and Orange in about 4 or 5 sizes.

Can't wait for the weekend!

Yes... there was a post, but it "disappeared". I bought some from Vados in Spring Lake Park. Got home and did an un-scientific test on their glow capabilities. End result?
Versus ALL of my glow stuff (weell, one of each), these jigs blew them away. 1 hour after, there still was a noticeable glow from these things. Red seemed to fade the fastest, green glowed the brightest, and blue glowed the longest. Can't wait to try them out.

Hey fella's. I think the reason the thread gets hosed is because your advertising products that aren't forum sponsors. In all fairness to the people that support this thread, you can't be pointing people in other directions. Talk to this guy and have him help sponsor this site.

Labrat,
All they are called so far are "glass jigs", they are made by a couple of guys and they have been trying to get them into as many bait shops as they can. But at a price of $4.59 not all bait shops are willing to carry them.

I told the guy about this site, I hope he will contact Rick and set-up an add with the site or better yet add his product to the FishingMN store!

Currently I know they have them at Angler's Paradise, Vado's and Capra's.

The hubby was out in search of these jigs today. He bought a few and his brother practically cleaned out Anglers Paradise. They then went to Vados, they had them but were smaller. He then went to a store in St. Francis and found some there (I didn't get the name of the store). The guy at Anglers Paradise told the hubby that they would glow for an hour and a half. I can't wait to try them.

I tried the URL last weekend. They worked pretty good... but not good enough to justify $4.50!! But that was just one time using them... this weekend they will see some action on local lakes.

      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
    • FishinCT
      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.
