      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.

So what are the early reports for your guys camps. I hope better than ours pretty slow not that many deer moving. I think that the full moon had them moving alot more a night than usual. We so quite a few does as a party but didn't connect. Well I will be back up thurs and hopefully I can get mine in MN so that I can head into ND and get mine out there. Good luck to all of you that are still hunting and congrats to the ones that got the big one.

Saw a ton of deer moving, all day long. Total of 20-25 deer seen by myself from several different stands throughout the day. Could have shot shot a few does but held off. Good thing, I got a nice 12 point 30 minutes before dark. Woohoo!!!! He's getting caped right now and will go to the taxidermist.

Nice do you got any pitures to share of that monster. I need to be reminded every now and then that it is possible for a deer to grow a nice rack. Wish I could connect up with one like that.

We had our 5 deer for 3 hunters by 8:00am Sunday. Hunting near Brainerd, we saw more deer than we ever have in that area. We got a big 8 pointer Saturday and the rest were does.

We got three does for 3 people. Held out for bucks after that but never saw one. But its all good, plenty of meat for us smile.gif To bad I found out Von Hansons was doing mixed meat only, after I had already droped them off. I hope you all cleaned and hung your deer well!! smile.gif

7 bucks, 1 doe for 12 guys as of noon on Sunday. Smallest buck was 5 pt, the rest were all 8+ - biggest 11 pt. Had to head home Sunday, but Monday the meat pole added another 11 pt and a monster 8 pt that out-did the rest of 'em I from what I'm told. Still waiting to see pics from the cousins.

We passed on a lot of smaller bucks to let 'em grow. "Whitetail Catch & Release" I guess you could call it? Catch 'em in the scope and let 'em go... smile.gif

Are you guys with these nice bucks hunting on private land, or it just that good where you are? I was just wondering because I have hunted some public land near Mora for 4 yrs. now and have only seen 1 spike buck. Normally I see at least a few does though but nothing like you guys are describing. I am not new to the sport either and I put in time scouting and checking stands and put in 10-12hrs a day in the woods, but I have only seen 1 doe that I took last Wed. Not that I'm complaining about only 1 deer, just wondering if I should try a different area, maybe further up north?

We're 6 for 6 so far with 4 bucks( A big 8, 6 and a couple of 4 pointers) and 2 does(management tags). We still have this weekend to get a few more.

I broke in my muzzleloader this weekend with a 4 point buck. Passed on several does and a few bucks that didn't offer a decent shot last weekend.

The this weather really put the damper on deer movement this weekend. Not much moving around. Hopefully things are better for next weekend. I've still have two kids who haven't filled a tag yet this year.

Wow that is a nice buck you got there viddles456. What part of the state are you hunting in?? Well things came together for my dad and I this last Fri. I got a 9point + 3 Sticker horns = 12 Points on Fri Morning and my dad got a pretty good Doe about 10 minutes after I got mine. Lucked out that is for sure only buck I saw in our camp but I'll take it. Start out in ND this past weekend the group I am hunting with has 3 does and 1 small buck so far. We have 3 buck tags left so probably going to get a little tough to fill out there but we'll keep on walking.

Great shots! Those are some nice bucks. I went this last weekend. I shot the only buck out of my party of seven, an 8-pointer with a narrow rack was hunkered down in a ditchline on my Dad's farm. Made the weekend. The rest of my pack is out hunting today while I'm handcuffed to this desk at work. At least I wasn't skunked.

I'll try to send a pice of the twelve pointer I got Sat. Incredible mass with 2 1/2 inch diameter bases.

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Thanks Cliff

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.

      Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.
    • tcbow
      We made a day trip a couple of Sundays ago. Fished from about 9:30 to 3:30 and my kid caught 2 walleye- 21" & 25" with a tag. In the past two winters I've made a total of 3 day trips and have a total of 10 walleye from 19-25 inches. I think the numbers may not be a may, but the quality is great. Very similar to the late 90's not as many fish, but great size.
    • hookie
      no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.
