      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

Royce Aardahl

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

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      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!!!
