      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.

Lots this morning like you said it had been pretty quiet lately, but saw fluffed up Toms once again this morning and they were really active and it was like 2 hours after sunrise so what went on prior to that ? Seems a lot of the hens now are nesting or by themselves for the most part, wife is OTC hunting in a few days, they have been patterning well so she decided to give it a go. I think since we all got a bird already she's feeling the urge, we have some really old birds in the neighborhood, extremely long beards anyway, the 2 we're watching appear to have at least a 10-12 inch beard, mine turned out to be 11" and the one we're scouting seems that if not more, we had him at 12 yards last night so scouting was easy peezy. Hope she gets him so we can measure him up, but his spurs didn't seem all that much, I don't know, good luck to all of you still after em.

On fire the past two mornings. In the roost and on the ground.

Jakes are gobbling too.

Here's kinda a gobbling question, what does gobbling mean in early June ? Usually every Musky opener I hear gobbling on this ridge wind permitting, what's he up to just shaking off the dew for the morning ?

They'll gobble year round. I hear them gobble from my deer stand in November.

This is old data.. but gobbling on May 5th was great where we were in Western Wisconsin... from 5:15 to 7:00 w/o much of a letup. Too bad we couldn't get to them due to high water areas after all the rain.. dumb not wearing the waders that day. Monday produced a few gobbles from 5:15 to 5:45 and then a sporadic one here and there with the last one heard at 8:00. I figured Tuesday would be great as it had been a cool night and the sun was going to show itself and I hardly heard a thing.. kind of disappointing but it was a very pretty morning.

They often will gobble when they fly to roost.

Gobble gobble gobble this morning. Found the birds and there was 1 tom with 4 hens, he was fluffed and found 3 toms with 6-7 hens or last years young and those 3 were fluffed up. Then saw a few lone hens the rest of the route I took. More so than gobbling the rooster pheasants were really fired up this morning.

They are still pretty fired up around Montgomery. My dad had one fired up at 5 PM last night for about an hour and said they were going again this AM. I tagged out Tuesday evening after watching my bird and one other Tom strut and gobble for 2 hours between 5 and 7 PM. I piled mine up at 8 PM. Not too many hens left, I think most of them are on nests.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
