      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!!!

Was just up to Alex was little slow on LaHomadu...few crappies few EYES!

Anyway 2 ?'s We are going back up for Jan 10-12th trip and don't plan on fishing LA Homadu contest...will try night bite Friday..

1)For that time of year close to Alex
(within 20 miles) what would be good lake to fish for Sunnies daytime and crappies and eyes into night??? We have 4 wheeler and portable homes.

2) We stayed at Days Inn $106 a night this last trip are there and nice local mom/pop hotels in area we could stay at that are nice but little more reasonable????

Really appreciate it!!! Just FYI all nice larger fish any species go back CPR! Sunnies too!

Thanks for any help and have great holiday season!!!! smile.gif

Peace Max

Max...lots of lakes will fit that criteria...Mary and Reno for sure...Maple lake..good for crappies. Geneva would be a good choice too. Miltona and Ida are not far out, offer the same fare, but they're big
and may take some time to find the 'spots'. Try Geneva, Darling, or Maple...

As for ma and pa hotels...check the Alex Chamber website..should be a list of all of them there..

good luck...

Oh...if you want a little less crowded event that weekend, the Lake Oscar association puts on a derby that same day...600 adult raffle tickets for some nice prizes...$50 to biggest crappie, walley and northern....Also a good all around day/night lake.

      I took a set of my mother's ear- rings and made lures out of them.. Do not remember if i ever caught anything on them. But they were flashy.

      lakes like Ottertail Lake had 1000-1500 castles on it this year.  we are very concerned about pressure.  good points in this thread that could apply to many other minnesota large lakes.

      I think everyone buying a wheel house and heading out for days at a time is what has really caused fish to move out of the area more than anything.  I think it would be interesting to have the major resorts track the fish cleaned by their guides summer verse winter.  It sure seems to me they take way more people out ice fishing than summer fishing.

      There may be way more pressure in the winter but the harvest is MUCH higher in the summer.  Fish are far more active and feeding heavily in the summer months than they are in the cold water months.  Plus in the summer there is this thing called hooking mortality.  The days of keeping 4 or 6 walleyes and 10 crappies are coming to an end.  Its unsustainable virtually everywhere including a large body of water like LOTW.
