      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.

Wading this Saturday

Recommended Posts

Attention all shore/wading fm'ers - anyone want to get out this Saturday? I'm planning on hitting the 'sippi (elk river, otsego, monti...) pretty much all day (7/8am-ish 'til 4pm-ish). I haven't decided where just yet but wouldn't mind some company - in case I get washed downriver LOL grin.gif.

Mike,

There is a possibility I will be going out on Sunday. If you can reschedule, we could do a float. If you want to shoot me an e-mail we can discuss the possiblities. The higher water should make for an easier float than what I'm accustomed to, and I'd love to start meeting some of you cats.

Sak - unfortunately I won't be able to do a Sunday because I'm a part time youth pastor and have some responsibilities throughout the day on Sundays. I did shoot you an email however. If you get out on the river this Sunday, good luck and be sure to let us know how the river looks - you should be in good shape for a float trip.

Anyone else up for hitting the river and wading this weekend? I'm looking into a couple new spots to test out Saturday. Should be a good day - despite how the fish are responding. One of the great things about wading the river is that you can spend the time to fully work a spot. In the fall, once you get into one fish, there are bound to be a handful more in the same hole. If interested in getting out, just click on my name in the moderator section at the top of the 'sippi north forum for my email.

      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!

      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.
