      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.

Minnesota Waterfowl Assoc. Business Needed

Recommended Posts

Rick

The Minnesota Waterfowl Association has a mission of protecting, restoring and enhancing habitat. Project efforts benefit migratory waterfowl and other wetland wildlife. The MWA is non-profit organization that survives through fundraising.

The Dakota Great Swamp Chapter of the Minnesota Waterfowl Association is currently planning it's annual fundraising banquet, to be held February 26th, 2004. This is the single primary fundraising event for the entire year. It consists of a dinner, live and silent auctions, raffles, and a gun raffle; these exciting elements are the draw to attend the event, and tickets to the event provide the fundraising revenue for the organization.

As in years past, we are soliciting contibutions for this event from businesses who are concerned about preserving our natural resources. Anything you could offer in the form of a raffle prize/door prize, silent or live auction item would be sincerely appreciated, and your business would be recognized as a contributor at our banquet. In addition, this is a great way to showcase any new products you may have. Of course we accept cash donations as well smile.gif

This year's banquet has some very exciting elements to it, with some pretty famous personalities volunteering to attend. But we sincerely need the help of any businesses out there that are willing.

If you think you can help out in any way or have any questions, please contact jon.p.keller@comcast.net (kpj5br on FM)

Thanks

Rick, thanks for posting this.

For all duck and goose hunters out there, the MWA really fights for you on a number of levels (legislative, wetland restoration, public hunting opportunities, etc.) and could really use your support.

Thanks

Trashdux,

that post simply was not called for.

You need links authorized before posting and you certainly are not allowed to bash.

The fundraising banquet will be held in Lakeville, MN, at the Chart House Restaraunt and Banquet Center.

Please email me with other questions or specifics, your donation is tax deductible, and MWA provides a receipt for your tax purposes for the retail value of your donations.

My email is jon.p.keller@comcast.net

Everyone on here that hunts ducks should be a member of the MWA. IMO.

They help do a lot.

Hi all, it's been a while since I updated this post, but this banquet is coming up next month.

I wanted to invite you all to attend, many great sponsors game through, and we will have a ton of raffle and auction items, including guns, waterfowl prints signed ONSITE by artist David Maass who will be receiving the MWA Lifetime Achievement Award that night.

My email is up above in the posts, but I'll put it here again just in case.

The regular advertisement for this goes out next week, and we expect a sell-out quickly, so this is an opportunity for the fishingmn community to get first dibs.

Thanks, and hope to see you there supporting minnesota's waterfowl and hunting habitat!

Jon

      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!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
