      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.

Walleye Wacker

We are coming up on 1/2-1/5 staying at Schuster's for the 1st time. We always have gone with Sportsman's in the past but have not had much luck through the ice the last few trips with them.

Anyone have any luck with them in the past?

For sure! We went out of Shusters 2 years ago, and we would get a mixed bad , Saugets Eyes, Pout and Tulibees. We limited out each day we were there, adding a few monster perch to the mix. Mostly using horizontal red and green glow on the dead stick, and buckshot and AE on the Jig stick.

Have FUN!!

Walleye Wacker,

We are going to be going out of Sportsmen's this year for the first time. Have gone with another outfit the last couple years but couldn't get in with them this year because they were full. We will be staying in a sleeper in early January. Did you stay in a sleeper or day shack and cabin? Please let me know what you thought of the accomodations and fishing. How many people did you have in your group? I know you can't or shouldn't give any bad reports but just wondering what you thought and how you did fishing. From what I've heard in the past they are really good and when talking to them on the phone they sound really knowledgable and willing to help keep you on fish.

Any comments will be appreciated.

Plev,

We usually go w/ 4 guys and in the past had great luck with Sportsman's. The last couple of trips we didn't do so well and thought we would give another resort a try. Sportsman's guides and accomodations were alway great. Food was good too!

This is my first post but i have been an avid reader on this site. This year will be the 5 year my buddies and I have come up to LOTW. We have stayed at Schusters 4 out of the 5 years and have had very good experiences there. We tried out Wigwam one year and when it came down to it Schusters was a much better experience all around. We have always caught a decent amount of fish. This year there are 8 of us coming up on the 5th through the 9th. Good luck!

Walleye Wacker I am also staying with the same group as rafter and we he been going to Schusters on this same trip for 8 years. Even if the fishing isn't great the people at Schusters always make it enjoyable and try to find the fish for you. Also watch out for Rafter he likes to disappear when it's his turn to buy a round at the lodge.

I'll give SP 139 the message that you & Doug will be leaving early - I think he was planning on meeting you in Mankato. How early are you leaving? Maybe I'll go with. Later.

Hey Rafter... or should I say CircleJ? You should come with us to Red on Monday. Poupy staying on my couch Sunday Night. We'll wait until 8 or so if you can make it.

Poupy is a little slow today. Too many B Lemons last night. Anyway... second Poupy's comments regarding Schuster's. Always first class...

Walleye Wacker,

It was nice to meet you. Our group (15) ended up with enough fish for two meals and we brought some home so we can't complain. Largest walleye was 18". Caught some perch, quite a few pout, and some tulibees.

      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.

      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      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!!!
