      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.

I know this may be completely uninterestion to most of you enjoying the Northwoods, but I am reporting that the Early Duck Season (Teal Season to some) went fairly well down here. The water was wonderfully high in the backwaters and provided good resting areas to flocks of birds (mostly Wood Ducks, with some teal and widgeon.) OUr group ended up with 12 Woodies, 4 BW Teal, 3 GW Teal, and a couple drake Widgeon. Overall, I give it an A. Early season is sometimes hard, unless you're hunting for Mosquitoes.

We had a good early season in eastern Iowa. Saw plenty of ducks, lots of water(Which was a nice site after the past 2 years). The only toruble was our guns didnt seem to be shooting straight. Touch rusty after a year without shooting.

FrazerMan,

Funny, the world is a small place...I too live in Cedar Rapids, and generally hunt Coraville(I sometimes refer to it, as the "Zoo")

Where abouts do you hunt in Amana?

Send me a email if you wanna hook up sometime during 2nd season.

Travis, as you probably know, Amana is private land, open to stockholders only. My Dad grew up there and now I hunt there. I hunt about a half mile north of South Amana in a slough. Lots of woodies, a few teal and widgeon were around down there. I'll drop you an e-mail soon.

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.

      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.
