      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.

River Rat Tournament!!

Recommended Posts

Turk

Beanie's 10th Annual River Rat Tournament – the St. Croix Rivers largest walleye tournament is being held on the 27th of September at Beanies in Lakeland, Minnesota. The tournament starts at 7:00 am and weigh in is at 3:00. Most years over 110 local St. Croix Valley and St. Paul area anglers get their competitive fish juices flowing and enter this fun river tournament. This “walleye” contest is really for three categories, the largest stringer of walleye and sauger, largest walleye, or largest "ugly" fish. Most years twelve to fourteen pounds will put a team in contention for largest stringer, largest walleye can be a trophy sized lunker or some years a four pounder wins. For the ugly fish a legal sized sturgeon, legal size is over 50" or a 30 pound flathead places well. The tournament is a great time with tons of door prizes, and this event is organized to generate funds for the St. Croix Valley Youth Service Bureau. Entry fee is usually 20 dollars, and a winner of any of the three categories can expect a couple hundred dollars or so in winnings. I'll be there hoping for some BIG fish, say hello if you see me, and good luck to all entries.

27th huh? frown.gif That figures, I have a wedding to attend up in Two Harbors. Perhaps I can skip out on the wedding, not like it's going to be their last one. Although there is something kind of sacred about a persons first wedding. wink.gif

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.

      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff
