      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.

Dirty Dog does it again

Recommended Posts

My good friend Steve ( who I call Dirty Dog), got another dandy today. We decided to try to get an eye or 2 for the fry pan and hit an old smally spot north of Sartell a ways first. First cast, BAM! 20 1/4 incher. AWESOME, HEAVY fish! (The dirty dog!) wink.gif All in all a fun evening with 6 smallie, 2 keeper eyes and a couple crappies. Then about sundown I look to the front of the boat and there's a doe swimming across the river. A bit more current and we could have netted her! BAd picture but you can kinda see her.

Cranks are working pretty well right now, well at least better than some presentations that were hotter this summer. I think water clarity has something to do with that though. This summer, the water was really clear, it's been murky for the last 4-5 weeks and cranks offer a loud vibrating presentation that they can hone in on. Tubes worked fairly well for me on the last two outings. Tubes can make noise too, either with rattles or my perfered method, pinched bullshot. The bullshot weight makes clicking noises when it hits the rocks.

Congrats on the big fish Eyeguy & Dirty Dog. That deer picture is kinda freaky - glowing eyes & all...

thanks BM, we managed 2 over 18 yesturday. then went for eyes and the fish bit but all small. crappies are really getting active. the glowing eyes are from the flash on the camera.

EG - I figured the glowing eyes were from weird effect caused by the power plants on the 'sippi. LOL. J/K. Still looks freak though!

We caught all our fish on cranks this weekend I think the reason for that is that as the water temps get colder crawfish molt less making them less inviting to smallies so there food base turns more towards baitfish then the craws and the bugs that they gorge themselves on all summer long I might be wrong bout this but its my 2 cents anyway

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff
