      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has 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. Initially 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 see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then 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.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Does anybody ever pull cranks on the sand out in front of Greystone or Zorbaz during the day or night?

I will be up this weekend searching for the 'eyes. Any other pointers would be great. Thanks.

Yes, but you can also go further past greystone out in front of barkeys, 3 seasons, etc.
or go the othewr way out in front of the campgrounds as well.
Of course there are many other places to do this, but these are a couple I have had o.k. luck with pulling cranks at night , and the area you were wondering about.
Out in front of greystone though, maybe someone else can give their input, I think if I remember right it drops off pretty good there.

plus think there are usually some bigger sail boats sitting around there,(not sure anymore) with my luck, I would probably run into one when its dark, HEH

Run over and try the amor flats as well,
I usually use the original floater myself,

dano2 is correct.

This is the time of year that you can start to see boats lining up on the top of the first drop all the way from the Otter Tail Lake Nursing Home to almost the Greystone.

In front of the Greystone the drop does swing in toward shore and it is hard to navigate the break, especially at night. (Those Sailboats do mark a pretty good hole where the break goes straight out from shore)

Good Luck Crank'n!

Thanks for the advice guys. I figured I should share my results.

Friday night my partner and I got our limit on Amor Flats in 6' of water from 10:30 PM until Midnight pulling # 13 black/gold and black/silver Rapalas. Real nice fish...17 - 21".

Saturday we got 8 fish in the weeds east of Amor Point pitching jigs and plastics, no bait. Again, nice fish between 16 - 18".

Sunday we just hammered the fish on Balmoral Flats in that big NW wind in the afternoon pulling # 13 Rapalas in about 7' of water. We got our limit of 15 - 17" fish and we released 5 fish over 24". The fish were just suicidal in that wind. What a blast.

No doubt the cranks were the ticket this past weekend but it was also fun catching the fish in the weeds on plastics. I almost felt like a bass fisherman, which isn't a good feeling. (hahaha)

Good luck to all and again, thanks for the tips.
