      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.

Sucka sucked it up tonight!

Well, I guess we all have to have these days once in a while, but not all of us post about that's for sure. I don't know why I am reporting this, perhaps it's a sympathy plea. I caught one sheephead in about 5 hours of fishing. I'm not saying I didn't miss a couple here and there, but ouch!

I worked the Hudson bridge and missed a few; I worked the sand bars by the NSP plant and missed a few. I went to one of my best spots north of Stillwater before pulling out the boat and nothing!

I know, nobody feels bad for me, that's ok. By the reports I would have to suggest that you stick to mornings for walleyes and lower St.Croix seems to be having better luck. No excuses here, I really stunk tonight! Sorry that I can't bring good news this time.

Sucka, I feel your pain man. When I look at all the time and money I've spent, energy I have expended,tackle purchased, and knowledge gleaned. I would like to think that I could catch any fish, anytime, anywhere. But alas I have come to the harsh reality that it is still called fishing and not catching! PS Think how good it will feel when it quits hurting.

Sucka,

Hey don't feel bad the bite has been Hot and Cold! I always try to report as such and not just start spouting off when catching big fish! So thanks, we all appreciate it.

This has been an odd year, last haldf of summer, for sure. The phrase "you should have been here yesterday," is fairly common where guys are stratching the head after slamming fish the day before. If you time it right the Croix could be coonsidered dead or Hott!

It really is tempermental just like a lake this year. The only advice that I can muster is work the fastest current you can find in an area, at least try it, it can really pay off, but that's why it's called fishing.

Keep Catchin'

I will agree with Turk it was a goofy summer with the big rains! Hammer them one day and struggle the next two to three days.You really had to key on the low-light periods with the hot summer to be somewhat productive!! The end of Sept into October should get very good. Should be more consistent anyways. The fish know winter is coming and they will have one thing on their mind and that is eating!!

Keep reporting and good luck.

Ya it happened to me this mornin' too. Four trips to the Croix in the last three weeks yielded 2 wally or sauger to bring home each time along with plenty of smaller ones to throw back. Also sunnies, crappies, smallmouth,sheepers, rockies, silvers and channel cats mixed in.

So this morning I got the chance to take my wife fishing. She got a sheep and rocky; I got one puny C-cat. I was looking forward to seeing her have lots of fun with the stizostedions. Oh well if 4 out of 5 trips to any body of water were as good as the Croix has been for the last month, I'd have to fish MORE THAN 100 times a year.

      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.
