      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.

Cliff, did not want to bother you prior to us leaving the area on Tuesday morning, I did look down the river and your boat was on the lift, I figured you were doing some of your work around the Ponderosa.
Thanks for the wonderful time that I had fishing with you on Sunday. Your a good teacher, I enjoyed learning a few new things, and will use those in the coming years. I did manage to get out Monday morning for an hour or so, kept one 17"er, jig and fathead, by the island where the big one came out of.
Talked with Bob at the Fortune Bay Marina on Monday morning, I was looking for some of those small sucker minnows, he said he was closing up this coming Sunday, so did not have any. I ran into Chuck? Kelly, the other guide we were talking with on Sunday morning, I mentioned to him, that the Marina was out of bait for the most part. Having only met this person the day before, he offered me some sucker minnows, what a nice person to do this for me. Just thought I would post this on the general Vermilion Forum, to let some of the other FM'ers know that if they are in the need of a good guide that will put you on fish, and also teach any old dog a new trick or two you are the man they should contact. Again thanks a bunch, also if you run into Mr. Kelly tell him I appreciated his generous offer, of the bait. He would not accept any money for them, you guys are the greatest.

Darrell,
Thanks!
I always enjoy getting together with you and Sue.
The walleyes are still biting in the spot we fished!
My son and 2 friends fished there on Sunday and caught 30+ there and kept their limits.
Chuck Kelly is a great guy and a very good guide to boot!
Take care.
Cliff

Cliff, are you ready for ice up yet? Don't know if you've been up to my folks lately but I have twi new wheelers sitting there ready to go.....Is your boat put awya for the year yet? I need to come up and get them to bring them home and do some preperation (auger mount, boxes for the back racks, etc..) and thought if I came up and you still want to get out I'd love to get out with ya once before ice up. Wish I could tow two trailers but tried to figure that one out and doggone it I just can't do it! I know your getting readyu for bambis too so let me know you schedule in the coming few weeks.

Larry, are you a St. Odelia Beach neighbor?

Bob,
I will probably keep the boat in the water until the last week of Oct. if the weather looks like it will hold.
It would be great if you could get up to do a little fishing before ice-up.
Not ready for ice yet!! Too good of a walleye bite going right now!
Will have to walk up and check out your wheelers.
Cliff

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.

      Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.

      We made a day trip a couple of Sundays ago. Fished from about 9:30 to 3:30 and my kid caught 2 walleye- 21" & 25" with a tag. In the past two winters I've made a total of 3 day trips and have a total of 10 walleye from 19-25 inches. I think the numbers may not be a may, but the quality is great. Very similar to the late 90's not as many fish, but great size.

      no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.
