      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!!!

river report 12/01

Recommended Posts


12/01/01 St. Croix River crappie and walleye action is slow. 15”-17” saugers have been on a fair bite in 31 to 35 feet on some deep sand points and breaklines from Hudson to Prescott, key on areas with current flow. Saugers are being caught on jig and minnows, blade baits, and ice jigs. The Prescott area has been better for walleye than the more northern St. Croix. In Prescott eyes are being caught at the base of riprap, and saugers are being taken from 24-30 feet deep on the above-mentioned lures. Mississippi River Pool 4, water temperature 41, stage in Lake City 6.79, flow 14,500. The bite within three miles of the dam has been great and dominated by 17-18” saugers. These fish are biting aggressively in 24-28 feet and hitting jig and minnow on all colors it appears, and on jigs and plastics - the fish are slamming the bait- no subtle taps here. Mississippi river walleye are being caught much shallower than saugers and key rock areas such as rip rap and wing dams are holding fish from 2-9 feet deep. These eyes are being caught on either cast 1/8 oz. jigs or crankbaits or drifted jigs with livebait or plastics.
