      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.

Thanks again

Deb,

I'm glad you guys had a good time. It's always nice to be on the water with a 30 degree windchill. As for Rose she is a animal. I'm still kind of suprised she didn't tie into that state record. Let me know how you do on your fishing trips down the road and if you guys get down in this area again let me know and I will point you in the right direction. Take care and say hi to Rose.

Hey Chris, it sounds like Rose and Deb had as good of a time as my wife Kristin had last August on our anniversary. My wife is not one to be out on the water unless it is sunny and she has a good book to read. You have created a monster. Everytime I bring up the river she has to remind me who caught the big fish, actually both of the big fish. She got a 26 1/2" walleye and about a 3 pound bass. She is "threatening" to take me back there again this year. Boy is she going to have to twist my arm! Thanks for taking the time to teach her the ropes and getting her more interested in what I love. Hope to see you on the water early in August.

Paul,

I tell that story to everyone I take out! Not to bad for the first walleye she ever caught. I would love to see that picture any copies? If you can e-mail me and I will give you my address. Have you two been out on the croix since then? If you see me out there come over and chat! The walleyes are going pretty well on old reliable. No monsters yet but soon. Nice to here from you.

My wife had the pictures blown up to poster size and hung on the living room wall. J/K. I'll see what I can do about getting you those pics. We haven't been back to the river since that day. I don't know if my ego can take another hit like that. I'll definetly stop by if I see you though. I'm going up to Lake of the Woods for a week June 7. Then I will be taking another week over the 4th of July and fishing the Brainard area, maybe leech for some bass, so I won't make it over there for awhile. Thanks for turning me on to tube baits. It seems like I always have at least on or 2 rods rigged with them at all times. What a great way to fish. Talk to ya later. Paul

      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.

      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!!!
