      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.

Any noises yet about rebuilding up there? They still have the little Motel which I have stayed at before so I would think they would rebuild the bar?

We were up to Fish Tales on 1/15, their cheap burger night, to check it out & see if some of the regulars from The Hill would show up there. Burgers were OK, we like The Hill's better, & we seen 1 familiar face. Everybody was friendly, so as we had a couple & had our burgers we  got to BS'ing with everybody. Even the bartender agreed that he thought they would rebuild eventually & that Jerry would probably be doing the building as he wouldn't l want anyone else to do it, since that's what he does. We thought It might easily be a year or more though by the time the Fire Marshall is done, the insurance company does their thing, & then the actual construction. That was all Danielle's thing, as that's what she did while Jerry worked construction 16-18 hrs a day. He's done a lot of work around our lake, especially on our(south) end.

Once of the real sad deals when ever there is a fire like this, is all the non-replaceable history hanging on the walls like fish, deer heads, old pictures and funny old signs. :(

We thought it was a fairly new construction(70's) but were told that the original building went back to the 1934

Jerry and Danielle are good friends of mine, I live just up the road from them, I probably helped pour the concrete at Leeches house. Yours the one on Bass? Jerry starts building it will go quick, The Hill after all was the only bar IN the town of Squaw Lake. Very sad seeing things like this happen, Jerry had just completed the last remodel on the place, he is a hard worker.

No, we are the 1 on Sand just north of LL. He built the neighbors just north of us last season. The stop sign on CO RD 35 by the Portage bridge, just a couple places north of that. Jerry did the 1 on Bass just after ours. We demo'ed starting the day after Labor Day 2013 & were unloading the pod back into the new place by late April 2014. We've got to know a lot of nice people at The Hill over the last 3 -4 years. Probably even talked with you. Some of the Tuesday bunch know us as the brothers from Ia.

You could tell by the creaky old wood floors by the bar and the hall to the rest rooms that they had been there a while.

      Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall

      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.
    • mrpike1973
      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!!  
    • fowldreams
      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.

      Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"

      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!!!
