      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.

Who is in for Saturday!

Recommended Posts

I'll be headed out in the early a.m. Saturday morning for a little walleye action and if that slows will work some whitebass and crappies to pass the time. Who all is going out this weekend? Walleyes should be post spawn for the most part from the fish I saw earlier last week but there will be a few stragglers shallow yet and around the spawning areas. I plan on casting cranks to the shoreline early then troll a few cranks and if the box is looking sparse then I'll switch to the jig and minnow and some plastics action. Remember to pick up your AIS sticker and put it on your trailer and have the sticker in your boat somewhere(You can pick them up at the local liscense bureau). Might get you past an early season stop from the DNR. Make sure the boat lights work, the batteries are topped off and charged and your trailer lights are working. Make sure there are enough PFD's for the people in your boat and check and make sure your electronics are working, along with the trolling motor. Give a quick squirt of grease to the zerts on the motor and the wheelbearings of the trailer. Make sure the landing net is in the boat and you have all the current liscs. needed for yourself and the boat and trailer. Don't forget the tackle box:) Have a safe and fishy outing this weekend! Tightlines!

I will add a little to this remember its only fishing not worth getting into a hurry out there. And not worth the hassel of argueing with the others when they are in your way some are more experienced than others. so just calm down. Good luck guys and gals!!! Lets see some pictures of the beauties you catch this weekend......

Good stuff Tunrevir!

Good luck this weekend guys!

I'm headed out of Franconia to try my luck. Been out a few times with no luck for whites and cats. Got a few pesky eyes during the search....guess a guy can't complain. But they need to get a little bigger if I want to have a meal this weekend wink

Gonna be out at 12:01 am Saturday morning. I'll try to limit out before the crowd gets out. Hope the rains stay away, awfully chilly if temps are in the 40s overnight and rainy. Oh wells maybe that'll keep some people away.

I'll have my little jon boat on the river Saturday morning chasing the walleyes too. Should at least be a little warmer than it was a few weeks back. Looks like the river levels have come up a bit in the past couple weeks too so we'll be working the edges and trolling cranks.

Gonna be out there this Sat... Not sure if on foot or by boat, but I'll be there. I've finally decided on joining the droves in the Hudson area.

How do you guys think the weather will affect the fishing? I just checked and it said rain/snow showers and 49 degrees. Sunday will be decent though - it's just too bad I have to work.

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Under bite jaw = whitefish! Cliff

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.

      Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.

      We made a day trip a couple of Sundays ago. Fished from about 9:30 to 3:30 and my kid caught 2 walleye- 21" & 25" with a tag. In the past two winters I've made a total of 3 day trips and have a total of 10 walleye from 19-25 inches. I think the numbers may not be a may, but the quality is great. Very similar to the late 90's not as many fish, but great size.

      no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.
    • hookie
      got a nice batch last weekend for smoking. Larger ones.

      Brian, Under-bite = whitefish? I have not 'bled' my fish. What's your basic process? Thank you.
