      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.

Looks like the weather will be pretty bad for the classic this year. Forecast is calling for an 80% chance of rain and very windy conditions. Fortunately for me I have decided to skip the tournament this year. I think the wife and I will do our fishing on Friday and Sunday to avoid the bad weather. Have fun all you classic anglers, don't forget to wear your rain gear.

 First time fishing the tourney.  Brutal trip across big bay in the crestliner but we ended up in 14th with a check. We had a perfect 19 7/8 fish.  Had a 20 1/4 and 3 from 22-23" to. I was up all week and was really impressed with the average size fish this week.

I fished the tournament and cashed a check also, the weather forecast earlier in the week was looking like a wash out but Friday night we were informed that the rain was going to hold off which it did and it turned out to be a decent day with the exception of the strong east wind. Like cliff we had issues with our equipment as well, my transducer was slamming against the back of the boat after our first trip across big bay in the morning. My trolling motor would not deploy when we made it to our first fishing spot but my anchor worked well and we were fortunate that we didn't need to move to catch fish. 

I was surprised at the number of slot fish we caught, I was also surprised at the number of big fish weighed and the overall number of fished weighed at the end of the tournament at Fortune bay. The old saying  "winds from the east you catch the least" didn't hold true yesterday. The folks who put on the City Auto Glass tournament are top notch and it was a very well run event.

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
