      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.

Folks our friend P.P. will be posting a little info about the beast Pike he recently caught on the Croix, P.P. word to the wise -try not to get to specific in your location, least you want it "pounded" by about 50 anglers! But give general areas to look for.

Anyway Looking back on some of my own nice catches of hog Northerns - September has been one of the key times, September and the first part of June!

Great catch in advance P.P.!

Keep catchin'

The God's smiled on the Poon yesterday Boy's, as I watched all the boat's in the fishing tourney speed off. Then I put a nice little sucker on the hook and put him out to swim. Big crash on top then the fight was on, I wasnt sure what I had till he got 2 feet from shore. Then he jumped right at me, almost made a big mess in my shorts. God, what a nice fish..... 39" and 16 lbs. a Pike for the wall and a story to last for a long time.

Keep your line tight Boy's, P.P.

P.P. was the man on Saturday the 23rd.
2 wolves over 32" and FAT. Topwater propeller baits was the ticket.

Well Boy's it was so windy and choppy that only the right set up could get out to where the fish were.fishing top water in condition's like these might seam like a waste of time to most. But the Poon was all over it, two nice Wolve's. Not much to look at unless you held them or tried to take the hook's out, Right Turk!!!! These are the day's to go out and have a ball on TOP, just look for the right condition's .... that doesnt mean you'll like them.


Keep your line tight, P.P.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      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.
    • Wanderer
      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.
