      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.

Welcome to the site! If you want to change your name, it might be just as easy to start a new account with the name you'd like.

Some of these sub-forums will slow down in off season, and there isn't a whole lot of talk unless there's hunting to be done. I here you on the scouting and prep work, I'm trying to get better at it when time allows. Not for bear, though.

Hi Jarod. I too am starting to get the preseason excitement going. Checked out some new spots since I am hunting a different zone this year. Just hoping I don't have any competition from others at my new spots. Starting to gather bait too so should be in good shape.

Bear hunting is my main gig. Went with pref only this year for a total of 3 pref. points. Last hunt 2011 bought surplus and was able to harvest a nice trophy. Hope to see lots of Bear chatter....Remember to skin and cool asap for great tasting meat.

I drew 24 for possibly the last time and will be changing after this year. From what I have seen the terrain and vegetation types appear very different not to mention the years required to draw a tag. The scouting should be interesting but with more time between hunts it could take awhile to get dialed in again.

So far I have two barrels of dry bait and started working on the pastries.

Boy this year a person is going to need to stock up on the bug spray. Last year we were spoiled. Plan to look for a couple new spots this year. Try and make the route more of a continous loop. Welcome to the forum Jarod wink.

Thanks Jerkbait, Gonna be interesting for sure, lots of rain= natural forage back to normal so the nuts an berries are gona be plentefull,so certainly plan into late season if one can, baiting might get tough with a lot of hundini bears. Good luck everyone.

Morning Jarod. A buddy of mine saw a nice sized blonde - cinnamon bear near where I am going to set up one of my baits. May have to put up a trail cam in that area and see if I can get a pic.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.  
    • IceHawk
      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
