      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.

Big buck for the record

Thought you might enjoy seeing this. It is one of the most spectacular racks I've ever seen, and I was fortunate enough to see it up close. Rick Shoenrock brought it by the store last weekend...I've got a couple nicer photos at the shop.

"Rick Schoenrock of Alexandria shot this buck on Saturday's deer opener. The deer had 34 total points, of which about 26 of them are legal scoring points."

Here's the story From the EchoPress, Alexandria:
Joe Albert, Staff Reporter
11/12/2003


Rick Schoenrock of Alexandria had shot big deer before. Just a few years ago, he shot a 14-point buck...the deer of a lifetime in most hunters' books.

But this year, h e bested that with a state record-class non-typical buck that sports about 26 measurable points on its antlers. A local taxidermist who looked at the deer guessed conservatively that it would score in the mid-220s in Boone and Crockett points.

The deer will be in the top 10 of non-typical bucks ever shot in the state and has a good chance to be the largest buck shot this year in Minnesota. The state-record non-typical buck was shot in 1974 and scored 268 5/8 points. It had 41 p oints.

Schoenrock shot his deer near Huntersville in Wadena County, about 80 miles north of here, at about 8:00 on Saturday morning. He didn't reveal if he shot it on public or private land.

Schoenrock has hun ted t he land for nearly 20 years and seen other big deer from the same stand, but nothing approaching this deer, which weighed about 200 pounds field dressed.

"I didn't know what to expect," Schoenrock said. "The DNR said there was a ton of deer, but I had been up there a few times this summer and hadn't seen much."

He was hunting a field right next to a swamp and first noticed the deer when it was about 600 yards away. Until the time he shot it, Schoenrock w asn't sure how big it was.

While Schoenrock was scouting the area, he noticed a large tree on which a deer had rubbed its antlers. As he watched the deer steadily approach him, he thought it was probably heading to that spot.

"He was going cautiously through the open field, but every time he would stop, he was covered," Schoenrock said.

The deer was also walking straight toward him, not allowing a shot.

Finally, when the deer was 200 yards away, he had his chance.

The deer ran about 40 yards after Schoenrock shot it and crashed into a thick stand of trees.

"I was shocked when I saw this horse," Schoenrock said.

A Boone and Crockett official will measure the deer, but it must be measured again 60 days after the deer was taken for an official score.

Most points?
Heaviest deer?
Highest non-typical rack score?

I assume it will be or at least close to it! I have been hearing some stories lately talking about some very large deer taken in MN this year. I believe most were typicals but I am not sure. That is a world class buck anywhere!

Are there any other pics than this? It honestly doesn't look that big in this pic. Obviously doesn't do it justice.

Question: how can an animal have 34 points and then someone say 26 scoreable points? How can it be a point if isn't scoreable? From what I have been told it has to be 1" before it is scoreable and only then is it a point. Hey a 26 pointer is a nice animal by any standard. Was there ever a "green" score?

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
