      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.

I have a question/scenario:

Say i'm on a hunting trip in Iowa for a couple days. On the first day I limit out. On the second day I reach my Iowa possesion limit by noon. I live in minnesota and on my way home I want to stop at a buddies to hunt his land. Can I now go and take a Minnesota 2 bird limit even though the Iowa possesion limit is already over the minnesota possesion limit? I have the birds cleaned, packed on ice, and made transport legal. What do you think or know?

I have personally done what you described. As long as you have a license for each state you can have a possession limit from each state. Now if you you have MN birds in your freezer that putz you above MN possession limit you are breaking the law.

That doesn't make sense. With the Iowa possesion limit in your freezer your already over the Mn possesion limit of 6. Iowa's P Limit is 12. So in actuality you can have 18 birds in your possesion if you have both licenses.

If you have both licenses you can have 18 birds in total in your possession. You said you were in Iowa for two days so you have six Iowa birds in your possesion. Then you shoot two in MN. As long as you don't have more than 4 MN pheasants OR 6 Iowa pheasnts in your freezer you are fine.

Ok. I see the confusion.

A friend was asking me and I wasn't sure of the answer, I told him I would get to the bottom of it.

      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.

      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!!!

      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.

      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.
