      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.

I live on the Miss just west of becker so I sure can give you reports if youd like...and yes its still pretty high. Every time it starts to go down we seem to get some more rain and up it goes again. I,ll keep you posted on when it starts to go down again.
Later, Pete

Guys,
Don't let the high water turn you off to fishing the Miss. The smallies are really going "great guns" right now and they are really concentrated in the shallows. Pitch jigs and plugs to any shallow rip/rap type shoreline and hang on! Nav

Oh yeah...they are incidental fish for me until this Saturday. The walleyes are "literally" hanging in the same areas as the bass! On my last trip I caught two walleyes, aprox. 16" in length and my next pitch "bang" an 18" smallie from the same hole! Nav

I just got a new job today at Great River Energy, there is a GREAT park right across the street that some folks were catching walleyes and smallies during their lunch breaks...

Walleye GFA -
The outflow from the plant (your plant now, I suppose) is under that big concrete semi-circular deck upriver from the park. If a guy who works there knew the water temp and wanted to share it with say a guy who doesn't, he could really help a guy out wink.gif The back-current from that thing is over a rocky bottom.

Now you work in the neighborhood I fish in.

Kevin-
If I see you out there, which RP is you? I keep seeing a beige hi-pro a lot. Sunday I saw two beige hi-pros, a green low-pro and a green hi-pro.

      Begining to think it's going too be a really bad year.  Couples days ago was out, could not get anything to bite, switched up lures half dozen times. Did not help

      Darn you guys!!   How am I supposed to stay at work and pretend to be interested now? There's nothing better than bow hunting turkeys in the spring after a long winter!
    • monstermoose78
      Hey all just a reminder you will need a new license March 1!! Well it looks like we should be ice fishing for another month or more. There is some coming, so if you need to get you house off the lake it might be wise do it now. bites: green crappies, little elk gills sorting but you will catch them eaters, skogman has good from numbers of gills and crappies, and Lori lake for crappies. the turkey fever is starting to set in for me

      Hi @Rick, I'm also looking to take my family out this weekend. I  have a 3/4 ton with a 8x24 ice castle. Was looking at Shields or German. Is it pretty safe with my rig? I know some of these smaller lakes are aerated and can have some soft spots. Just want to be extra safe with the family. Also, the fishing been ok down there? Thanks in advance! Justin

      Hey @jlang_04, i'm looking to take my kids down that area and was curious how's the ice for a 3/4 ton with a ice castle 8x24. I'm sure the ice is thick enough but I also know some lakes are aerated or have current and the ice can be soft in some spots. So I just want to be safe with my family. Also, how's the fishing down there?  Thanks, Justin

      Thanks guys.

      Up until about seven or eight years ago we were on Head-o-lakes bay. Minimal to no Rustys. Just the old school guys with the big blue boxer-mit claws. We were seeing rounded gobies.  We're on Frazer now. Wow! It's indescribable how many of those buggers there are. We've been trying to do our part by having frequent crawfish boils. Haven't made a dent but fun and tasty to try.

      will definitely be hunting turkeys again this year.  Love chasing these birds. Intend to go the archery route this year for the first time.  I have 2 kids that always are excited every year, until a couple of early mornings wain thier enthusiasm!  Figuring archery will allow me go on those days the kids dont want to wake up and I think I have something figured out.  Hope my skills will be up to the challenge.

      I've had very good luck with them also. Always pick some up before heading out on the lake.

      Was thinking about heading up the shore for some open water fishing. Was just wondering if their is alot of ice floating around and if not wat kind of wind would make it difficult to fish from shore? Thanks
