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.

The smallmouth action S. of Little Falls last weekend was excellent. They seemed to hit anything that moved.

Walleyes were a bit on the slow side. A few fish caught and they were small.

I have'nt spent any time as of late chasing muskies. There have been quite a few guys out. I have'nt heard of any success.

Good Fishing!

HawgTide,

I haven't been out for over a week, but the last time I was the smallmouth action was very good.

A couple of good spots to try would be the pipeline. It's located about 1/4 mile S. of the public access by Lindbergh state Park, if you watch the W. shore you will see the signs. This area is loaded with rocks, humps and holes and has always been a real good fish producer. Another spot is S. of the pipeline 1/2 mile. Fish the W. side right where the river bends, The third spot is 1/4 mile S. of the last spot I mentioned, you'll see where the Swan river enters the Mississippi. Directly across from there on the E. side you'll see a large broken off pine tree. There is a large area of rock, this has also been a very good spot.

This should get you started, have fun and let me know how you did.

Good Fishing!

MuskyMike,

The water level is good. It really doesn't fluctuate to much here, because of the short distance between the dams.

Good Fishing!

kooba,

Yes we know each other. I noticed your F.M. Bumper on your truck and ment to ask you about it at the stag party. I guess with the intensity of the "war games" it slipped my mind.

I talked to Randy last night, It sounds like they are pretty excited to go. I hope we get into the birds like the last few years, they should have a good time. Yea, I hope I can keep them under control. At least there will only be two, You know what happens when all three of them are together.

I hope you guys have a good trip. Talked to our farmer buddy last week. The water is definitely down and the birds are concentrated. If a guy finds them, it should be some great hunting.

Good luck,
Paul

TP 175. Question for ya. When the birds are concentrated like they may be in ND. do you scare them off the lake/pond and then set decoys or do you sneak and try to get them when they fly Then set decoys? Will they keep on flying and want to come back to the pond? What is your method of hunting in ND when the birds are going to be so concentrated I hope? KOOBA

Kooba,

The area that we hunt has a lot of grain fields. We usually hunt them early mornings and again in the evening. When the fields quit producing say around 8:00-8:30 we head for water and try to set up where we've found good concentrations of ducks the night before. We prefer to hunt Mallards and this system has worked well for us in the past.

When we find a pond that is holding a lot of ducks, we usually put the sneak on them, bust-em up and sit around and wait. Some of the birds usually always return. Sometimes we put out decoys other times not depending on the situation and how much time we want to spend in that area.

I gotta head for work, but if you want some more info e-mail me at aliandpaul@fallsnet.com I'll give you my phone # I can talk faster than I type.

Here's my weekend report... This weather bites more than the fish! On Saturday, I put in at clearwater and went North a few miles. 40 degree temps and 40 mph winds don't add up for me. A few nice smallies in about 2 hours was all the fun I could stand.
My brain must have froze on Saturday, because I went back out on Sunday, this time to Little Falls. Beautiful area, but so different from the river down around Monticello. Again it was cold and windy. Water is crystal clear. Didn't know the Miss got that clear! My thermometer on my depth finder said water temp was 51 degrees. We caught 6 Smallies (1 was 3.4lbs), 2 Largemouths, and 6 Northerns in about 4 hours.

Not bad at all Hawgtide. I couldn't take the wind and left the sippi after 10 mins. I could only move on full throttle of my Minnkota 50 lb thrust. I was so pissed.

I went to the rum and got skunked anyways. That wind was horrid! I'm not going fishing on days like that again. Too frusterating.

Tour Pro 175,
Yes, thanks again for the info. The fishing was far from good, mainly because of the wind I think. We didn't find any concentration of fish, but we picked up a couple at each spot you suggested. I caught the biggest smallie around a dock on the west side of the river. Lots of leaves and debris in the water kept fouling up the lures. Didn't seem to matter what we used, we would always catch some type of leaf or weed.

EBass, I hear ya! I don't think I'm going out in that crap again either. It was extremely frustrating. The weather's got to get better soon.

      Cliff is right. If the upper jaw extends past the lower jaw or lip (aka an underbite), then it’s a whitefish. If the lower lip is even with or extends past the upper lip, then it’s a Cisco.  This according to the DNR website. Cisco’s also seem to have an irredescent hue to them vs. whitefish, which in Lake V have a slight brown/yellow hue to them. Hard to explain in words. Bleeding fish...plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it.  I gill them. Leaves your fillets pearly white and creates way less blood and slime during the fillet process. Many say the fillet tastes better too.

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.

      this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area? 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.

      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!
