      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.

Somewhere else I read that these guys also did this at the Fish a Plooza at Forest Lake, that resulted in that event being canceled.  

The perch they caught on Gull was bigger than anything ever seen on the lake.....  Seems fishy.

The Lyogky name has shown up quite often over the years. Wonder what the secret bait is?27750517_907932709357026_4726554920124030633_n.jpg.2c2a60e5a6dfab33c052e3cd437141a4.jpg

Interesting..... I wonder how they would sneak fish in if they were indeed cheating. :confused:

By purchasing a ticket for the contest you agree to take a polygraph at the discretion of the judges or forfeit your prize.

These guys are either crafty at catching pike or larger than average perch in contests or crafty at something else.  I know there were crafty fishermen out there that have things dialed in.

I left that contest not feeling crafty at all. :lol:

It seems to be more than a coincidence but at the same time you have to ask yourself how would even be possible to "sneak in" a 3 pound pike and then keep it alive long enough, especially with 12,000 others watching you?  It just doesn't even seem possible to me.

Something tells me they need to take a look at the cameras at the motel they stayed at and see if anything strange happened. Like pulling some fish out of a cooler before the contest.

Our “Fishing Council” weighed in on this the other day and came up with a couple things that make you say Hmmm...

If this is turning into a business for the group, would they be so crafty as to have under the ice techniques of getting certain fish on their lines?

They stay on the edge.  There are LOTS of private fish houses surrounding the contest area, on Gull at least.  Sure, there’s a neutral zone border but it’s not so far that a line couldn’t get connected somehow or diver could swim from one of the houses. 

I’d rather think these guys were just really that good at this but questions do come up.

Who’s the “ Fishing Council”? Agreed, I think maybe they just knew what they were doing. Like me :lol:. But of course there’s always going to be skeptics asking questions. And when you  have say 30-40k being given away can you help but ask questions? Just a thought.

One of the officials at the maple lake derby last weekend asked a 12ish year old kid what lake he caught his walleye on... he was almost in tears.

      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!!  
    • 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.

      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!!!
