      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.

Wondering if anyone has a boat like this or close to it. I am looking at buying this boat and would like to know what others think of theirs. Thanks for the help.

I have a 2001 TP170 with a 100 hp Yamaha 4-stroke. It is the perfect boat for me. Fits in the garage, easy to load and unload by myself, incredibly stable, handles all but the biggest bodies of water, and pulls my kids skiing and tubing. If I had more space, I would have gone bigger (175) but no complaints at all. Well laid out with 2 livewells and a baitwell and wired like the big boys.

Have TP175 and love it. Have 115 Merc and it will do about 37mph. Can take 175hp-wish I had more money when I bought the boat.

I Have a 2003 TP 185 with a Johnson 140 hp four stroke and love it.... Boat is rated for a 200 hp but I can go Wide open trimmed going about 42mph with water in wells/gas 2 people... The ride is fantastic with lots of storage..I really like the rod locker storage for 10 rods... grin.gif

I would recommend this boat to anyone...It really comes down to what you want... confused.gif Some people are brand loyal.. mad.gif some like Lund or Crestliners ... it's just like the snowmobile crowd... whatever makes you happy and fits your budget.. I owned a smaller crestliner before this !

search for localguide and you'll see the picture !

Good Luck !

Rich...I have a 2004 Alumacraft Magnum 175 CS, seen here:

Great boat! And I was a ranger fisherman and skeeter owner before this boat, so much for that glass is better than aluminum myth.

I looked at the 175 TP CS, but I found what I needed in the Magnum. Best of luck with your purchase! smile.gif Nav

      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.

      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.
