      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.

Any ideas what model or models .22 pump Winchester would've made in the early 1930's and what a value range might be?

irvingdog, is your store in Robinsdale?
Is it the big gun store there with the new ownership?
Reason I ask is I am looking for a range that will sign my CMP form so I can buy a M1 Garand.I tried Metro but those clowns won't sign any thing for me.Even if they sat there and watched me fire the 50 rounds needed to qualify.

Thanks for the help.

Irving Dog - it wasn't me asking about gun value - hopefully it wasn't somebody interested in the same gun I am. This one is in the family.

Uffdapete,
Is the gun you're reffering to a Winchester .22 WRF ? Octagon barrel, pump, tubular magazine, take down model with a thumb screw on one side to take the gun apart into 2 pieces ?
If so, I think it''s a model 1918 or 1914, (my memory fails me, and I haven't pulled it out of the gun safe in ages) made in 1930.
I have one. I've seen prettier versions with birds eye maple stocks and nickle plated barrels and receivers in books.

You can still get ammo for them from Cabella's once in a while. When I was kid I used to shoot .22 long rifles through it and they'd always expand and jam in the breech......it was years later that I realized I was shooting the wrong caliber ammo from it. It's more like an old version of a .22 mag.
Oh yeah...I used to see them at gun shows going for $300 to $600 depending on their condition.

The first Winchester rimfire pump was the octgon barrel Model 1890. Got two of them. They came in short, long, long rifle, and WRF. A lot of them have corroded out rifling from the corrosive powder used in the shells then. Next was the 1906, that came in short, long, and long rifle, interchangably. Those would have been the rifles of the 1930,s. Later, came the Model 62 and the next was the hammerless Model 61. The 61 also came in the .22mag. I've only seen one of the mags. High bucks.

The gun is in the family, but I haven't seen it yet. I'm hoping to get a look in a couple weeks. I was told it doesn't have an octagon barrel, that it does have a hammer.
I'll try and get a model number over the phone.

Icehouusebob is correct. I'm getting forgettful in my old age. The rifle I have is a model 1890, .22WRF made in 1914.

      There were a lot of cabbage beds on the North side of Pine Is. and on the far East end of Big Bay. Gone now! Cliff

      I never guarantee safety. Others in similar position are out on Shields. I would assume German is the same. I would do it just not telling you to do it.

      I have a skid house on Mille Lacs, the yellow perch has is no joke, camera all day long perfect sized perch for them to eat. The walleye numbers are strong, regardless what dnr says. The tough bite this year does kind of stink, but it's good for the lake. Every fish you catch is nice and healthy, and as previously stated usually big. We have been fortunate enough to get a couple slot fish (unicorns) out this year

      Just out of curiosity where were the cabbage beds on the east end? Rustys have been infested ever since we started fishing the east side

      shiners or suckers

      The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.

      Hey all, Heading to Mille Lacs tomorrow.  What has been the hot bait?  Shiners, fatheads??? Flash "Set the Hook"

      There are notes in some of the other recent LOTW posts on Knights/Bridges reefs.  I have no personal recent experience to share at this time.

      Our group is coming up March 10-13 this year instead of the typical mid-Feb trip.  We usually hit the reefs/islands in Feb with reasonable success, so I'm curious if that pattern is going at the moment.  Never fished LOW in mid-March, so we're not exactly sure how to approach things.  The current reports sound a bit slow at the moment, which probably isn't all that unusual for this time of year.  If anyone has any first hand knowledge of the reef/island bite, you can either response or PM me.  Thx.

      I like to fish a frozen shiner along with a live fathead on a single hook.  Even though the shiner is dead, I think the movement of the fathead creates the illusion that it's a live shiner.  It's worked for me many times anyway and it's usually better than either a frozen shiner or fathead by themselves.
