      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.

The Shoreveiw landing in I falls is open,so is the landing at Pelland ,the Pelland landing still has a chunk of ice at the rivers edge ,I would say small boats for now.I talk to a guy putting his boat in at Pelland today and he said they were getting a few walleye's.The river is low and clean.

Thanks

I haven't heard,it would not hurt at all if they let out a little water,the river is as low as I have seen it,a little current in my opinion will help,open things up and get them feeding,.another foot of water would be ideal.

The parking area is a little muddy but ok,the landing has a big piece of ice at the bottom,smaller boats would push over it fine ,larger boats would be a problem right now.

I talked to alyse this AM and she said they had the machinery there to clear the access in birchdale yesterday. Not sure if they did or not tho? Cant confirm. But my guess is that after today, or possibly today even birchdale will be available for big boats. And Im hoping by next Thursday at Frontier. Fingers crossed

You would be amazed what you see up there sometimes! I've seen guys push 18 and 19 foot boats over the edge, then shoot back up on the ice later and winch it on the trailer.

Two summers ago when I was working with the DNR doing watercraft inspections at the access in I falls behind hardees, I hooked into a massive sturgeon could have easily pushed 100 lbs. It spooled my braided line and nearly pulled me into the water. I was using hardees cheeseburgers on a plain hook off bottom.

I backed down ramp as far as i thought i could go and pushed boat off trailer using crank to keep control of boat speed off trailer. Had transducer tipped up and motor trimmed as high it would go. After boat was on ice it wanted to go had to have rope connected and let boat drop in water. Pulling boat back out hooked tow rope to trailer and another length of rope to boat. Used truck to pull boat up to top of ramp and cranked back onto trailer. Fishing was good and weather was good makes it better.

if Birchdale does open how is that ramp? shallow and gentle or does it drop off quick like Vidas? IE... Is It Bunk Trailer Friendly?

Any updates on Frontier? I was talking with a county worker at the ramp on Sunday, he mentioned something about the county filling in that hole at the edge of the concrete. Just wondering if anyone has heard if they have or plan on doing this.

Frontier is fine back in and cut your trailer hard down river no problem the hole is on the right side. Seen a couple trailers with broken axels just stay to the down river side. I have a bunk and need to sink it to get it off and i had no issues in 3 days.

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff

      Anoka county union says it is opening in the sports authority building in Coon Rapids. Cant Wait!

      I've found it interesting that the past couple years we haven't seen quite the numbers of rustys on our beach in the summer. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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 
    • Jplante
      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"
