      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 was out on the river twice last week; both times on the WI side. Once south of the main road. I got there about 3pm and didn't get a bite until 430pm and caught 7 nice crappies. Went out 2 days later and headed north of the road to the 40 feet of water. I got out at about 8am, caught two crappies right away and then nothing til about 1015am when I caught 3 in about 2 minutes, and then nothing. I was marking very few, but when I did, they usually bit. Still pretty spotty, But nothing beats sitting on the Croix.

good fishing!!

Update. Fished about 2 blocks out from Bayport Beach but south of houses 2 blocks in 26-30 feet, from 7:30 - 11 am, Sun.
Used fatheads, and an assortment of spoons and jigs....zero...saw a few fish but would not hit....very negative mood...Many fishermen on the Wisc. side near the hole..
the driving is rough...later.

hey Turk. Yes I am an autobody tech, and a lady killer :-). Atleast one anyway, my wife. lol. I didn't get on the river this weekend. Took the boy to Little Falls lake this weekend. Not much happening there either. Alot of perch,all about bait size. There has to be some nice ones somewhere on that lake with all the fry I've been catching. Getting them cornered is going to take some time I guess. They are getting a few pike, nothing big. I caught and released about an 8lb sunday on my jig pole. That was fun. Good fishing.

      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.

      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.
