      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.

By far the best program on the Outdoor Channel. It would be great to be on there, but their expectations are very unreasonable. Go to their website and checkout the qualifications. It's something like provide your own travel expenses, send in video footage from past hunts, show them the property you have access to, and must be able to hunt almost everyday in November. I'm speaking from what I remember....I certainly wouldn't qualify since I've never had a hunt video taped.

I thought it was funny that the group from MN barely hunted in MN during their season. They traveled to other midwestern states to get a shot at a decent buck. Just another example of the poor buck quality.

would definately be awesome to be on there if they paid for everything and there weren't so many qualifications. also, the boys from MN bring up a good point. they say they don't hunt MN much because the gun seasons are usually scheduled to be over the rut. that likes to make big deer go completely nocturnal.

WELL LAST YEAR I WENT DEER HUNTING FOR THE FIRST TIME UP NEAR MILLE LACS WILDLIFE REFUGE I HADNT BEEN HUNTING 5 MINUTES WHEN I HEARD WHAT I THOUGHT FOOTSTEPS OF ANOTHER HUNTER AND I SAID **** ITS GOING TO GET CROWDED TO MY AMAZEMENT IT WAS A 6 POINT BUCK HE LOOKED HUGE I AM ASHAMED TO SAY BUT I MISSED THAT BUCK FROM ABOUT 30 YARDS OUT. MY SLUG GUN WAS SIGHTED IN AT 100 YDS AND THE DROP AT 100 YARDS IS HUGE THE SLUG WENT RIGHT OVER HIS SHOULDER AND HIT A TREE. HE RAN ABOUT 20 MORE YARDS AND STOPPED I WANTED TO TAKE ANOTHER SHOT BUT, AS A SAFE HUNTER I DECIDED NOT TO TAKE THE SHOT SINCE PAST HIM WAS THE GENERAL LOCATION WHERE THE VEHICLES PARK. HE WENT ON HIS MERRY WAY AND I DIDNT SEE HIM AGAIN LAST YEAR. RUM RIVER STATE FOREST HERE I COME AGAIN, I DID TAKE A DOE MY FIRST THAT WAS FINE WITH ME AND THE MEAT WAS GREAT.

WB make the CUT

Dream Season..... I did watch, I have never be a fan of the Drurys but this was interesting. So mabey we can have deer hunting tourneys like we have for fishing, imagine, 150 hunters on 200 acres competing for thousands$$$.....something to ponder....

      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!!!
