      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.

Welcome Sucka-Our newst Forum Guide Pro

Recommended Posts

Rick

I'd like to personally welcome Derek "The Sucka" as our newest Forum Guide Pro at Fishing Minnesota.

Here is a little about him:

He's always ready to get out on the water. He's a young buck going on his 25th year of fishing. As for patterning his fishing techniques he's only been doing that for about 13 years.

Rivers have always been his love. He makes a trip to lakes once in a while, but his true passion is in current.

The Mississippi and the St.Criox are such ancient and incredible fisherys that they attract most of his attention.

He loves to take people fishing and love it when people with him catch fish. He's always willing to give advise or listen to a tip relating to fishing.

He would like to spend some more time down on pools 3 and 4 and learn the fisherys there too.

His areas of proficiency lie on the Mississippi River between the Ford Dam to a little below downtown St.Paul and Marine to Kinnikinnic on the St. Croix River.

Derek will be here often to help all of us river buffs and share info along with our veteran Turk and Crappie Getter.

The Sucka really enjoys exchanging good fishing information to make those River Trips more enjoyable.

Welcome Sucka!!!

Goodfishin : )

Welcome aboard "The Sucka". I have been following your reports and it seems you know a thing or two about these rivers we all love!! I'm sure you will make a good addition as a moderator. Someday us moderators(and anyone else for that matter) should hook up on the river and wet a line. I have been talking to Turk a little bit about getting out but I have been busy hopefully sometime in Sept.

Good fishing to all!!

Welcome aboard Sucka! I will keep an eye out for you on the Croix. I don't get out there as often as I wish to anymore, but I really enjoy that awesome and diverse fishery so close to home. Quite honestly, I spend more time out there in the winter than the Summer. If you smell venison brats cooking over a propane heater, it's most likely me! Stop by for one!

Thank you all for the warm welcome mat! I hope I can help anyone catch fish as much as Crappie Getter and Turk have on the Croix.

I've seen some good posts from all of you that replied here. This really is a special forum to be a part of and I know it has helped me in my fishing as well as broadened my horizons on locations around the state.

Gem-Eye, you're the first person I've actually fished with from the boards here since I've started posting, thanx!

Rick, thanx for the bump, I'll try not to let you down! I have been trying to get out as much as possible just so I can come back home and report, heh heh!

See ya all on the water!!!!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      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.
