      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.

Early spring Pike question.

Recommended Posts

Every year I head up to Warroad to stalk the moster Pike as they head back into the lake out of the Warroad river. This year was no diffrent.. however... we caught several large pike that had what appeared to be tape worms hanging out of the exit end of the fish...??? I have never heard of fish getting tape worms??? Any info on this???? Man that put a whole new idea on handling the fish I tell ya.. if they were tape worms, they can be gotten just form touching them if you break off a cell..... ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.......cut the line..........Maybe Im off but I have never seen this in all my years.........It kinda creaps me out, ya know.... <P>------------------<BR><A HREF="http://wiskersguidingservice.com" TARGET=_blank>Wiskers Guiding Service</A><BR>Red River, Red Lake River & Minnesota River,for Channel Cats, Flatheads & Walleyes<BR>Crookston, MN<BR> wiskers@gra.midco.net<P>218-280-0442<p>[This message has been edited by Wiskers Guiding Service (edited 05-01-2004).]

Well too bad I did'nt get to see you and that jetboat when you were up. Sunday was day 2 of Zippel tourney, went to GFKS on Monday, and Tuesday you must have cleared out by the time I got down there that afternoon. I've been wanting see one of those boats up close, I've only gotten a quick peek at one last year at the GFKS Catfish tourney as it was trailered by.<P>BUT....I have a feeling I may see your boat one day. I remember you posting that you were from up here originally and had only fished the lake a couple of times in your life. I read about your first ever outing on the Rainy this spring, and saw the pics of your first Sturgeon and some nice Walleye. Now you were up Pike fishing, hmmmm, sounds like maybe you've been bitten by the LOTW/Rainy river bug, and being Crookston is only 2-3 hours from the fishing grounds up here I wonder if I won't see you skipping across the waves on the big lake sometime this summer!<P>Lot's of water and fishing opportunities to explore and learn up here thru the different seasons of the year for sure.<P>Another thing you may find right up your alley....If you come up and the lake is just too windy and rough you could maybe give that Roseau river a whirl, I think you would like this as it is somewhat simuliar to the Redlake river in fishes availiable and what not. I think your river boat would like that river too! <P>Have a great season, hope you make it up now and then.... let us know when you do cause I'd like a peek at that rig of yours!<P>Best regards....Fisky<BR>

      Begining to think it's going too be a really bad year.  Couples days ago was out, could not get anything to bite, switched up lures half dozen times. Did not help

      Darn you guys!!   How am I supposed to stay at work and pretend to be interested now? There's nothing better than bow hunting turkeys in the spring after a long winter!

      Hey all just a reminder you will need a new license March 1!! Well it looks like we should be ice fishing for another month or more. There is some coming, so if you need to get you house off the lake it might be wise do it now. bites: green crappies, little elk gills sorting but you will catch them eaters, skogman has good from numbers of gills and crappies, and Lori lake for crappies. the turkey fever is starting to set in for me

      Hi @Rick, I'm also looking to take my family out this weekend. I  have a 3/4 ton with a 8x24 ice castle. Was looking at Shields or German. Is it pretty safe with my rig? I know some of these smaller lakes are aerated and can have some soft spots. Just want to be extra safe with the family. Also, the fishing been ok down there? Thanks in advance! Justin

      Hey @jlang_04, i'm looking to take my kids down that area and was curious how's the ice for a 3/4 ton with a ice castle 8x24. I'm sure the ice is thick enough but I also know some lakes are aerated or have current and the ice can be soft in some spots. So I just want to be safe with my family. Also, how's the fishing down there?  Thanks, Justin

      Thanks guys.

      Up until about seven or eight years ago we were on Head-o-lakes bay. Minimal to no Rustys. Just the old school guys with the big blue boxer-mit claws. We were seeing rounded gobies.  We're on Frazer now. Wow! It's indescribable how many of those buggers there are. We've been trying to do our part by having frequent crawfish boils. Haven't made a dent but fun and tasty to try.

      will definitely be hunting turkeys again this year.  Love chasing these birds. Intend to go the archery route this year for the first time.  I have 2 kids that always are excited every year, until a couple of early mornings wain thier enthusiasm!  Figuring archery will allow me go on those days the kids dont want to wake up and I think I have something figured out.  Hope my skills will be up to the challenge.

      I've had very good luck with them also. Always pick some up before heading out on the lake.

      Was thinking about heading up the shore for some open water fishing. Was just wondering if their is alot of ice floating around and if not wat kind of wind would make it difficult to fish from shore? Thanks
