      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.

We had a great time bow hunting in north dakota. I got a 9 point and fonz58's son Adam got a nice 8 point for his first archery buck.

Yes he was still in velvet. Probably half of the deer we saw were still in velvet.

I don't hunt...but I can appreciate a nice buck!

I'm starting to think that Eyeguy does nothing but hunt & fish... must be a rough life!

Man... that makes me miss home in NE N.D. The crops(canola, sunflowers, mustard, soybeans...etc.) really give these deer the necessary nutrients without having to work too hard for food. Then these deer can really hide in the open prairies and get away from people. Also, the buck/doe ratios are better managed and much more in balance in most areas to help sustain a more healthy population of deer. Each year I would have at least 5 bucks that were 140 class and up that I would chase around our farm. Even 1 180-190 class beautiful 7X7. My dad still living on the farm takes pictures of some of these brutes and sends them back to me once in a while. I still go back for rifle hunting and am waiting for the elusive 170+ buck to come my way!!!

I think I would fall out of my tree if a 170 class came by. Man that would make the heart race!! River was up about 4 inches from yesturday. Little slower action but still a good night. 1 at 18 tonight was the biggest.
BLB I was a die hard walleye guy for about 30 years, thats why I picked eyeguy.
Big Mike I try to hunt and fish as much as possible. Yes I work. I have to to buy all these lures and stuff!! wink.gif My wife is very gracious and understands how much I love to be outdoors. I've been that way since I was a kid but I am starting to feel the cold over the last couple years so I like a warm blanket on a cold winter day. OK enough of the emotional stuff. Get out there and rip some lips!! grin.gif

I try to get out as much as possible too - I'd fish all day everyday (on soft water, hang it up come time for ice) but the lady would freak. She is pretty understanding and is getting better, but I've still got to work for my days on the water!

I find compromise is the best thing...that and foot massages always seem to add a couple hours to a day on the water. If she is happy - then I'm happy.

      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.
    • Flash
      Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"

      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.
