      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.

Ok Sledhead, How did you do? I'm heading out with the "old guys" Jan. 8th at Long Point. You aren't the only one who fishes there. Both of the "old guys" were out at Long Point on the 27th along with the family on their annual xmas trip and didn't do well. So what was working for you?

Orchdock,

I was up on the 30th and took home a limit. It was nasty weather and terrible drive home on friday! I am heading back up early friday morning (7th) and staying till at the resort till sunday. I have a 2001 ford crew cab with camo on the bottom. Stop and say HI. I should be able to give you a report from the fishing on frday.

Last weekend was a tough fish out there but just like I have found out before if you stick to it you will get your fish. My 11year old found a weird glow blue lure looked like a mud puppy but it was hot! Other than that green and glow glowdevil was my best. Hope to see ya up there.

Thanks for the report sledhead. Over the years long point has been pretty consistent. I'll be looking for you Sat morning. If I don't find you, you can look for the house with all of the eelpout outside. I have been trying to target them for the last couple of years. It drives the old guys crazy. Still only get them by chance. One day I'll hit on the right presentation and I'll probably need to call an ambulance to take the old guys to the nearest hospital.

If you want pout the secret is a bright glow red, glow red with a attachable glow stick! I am not kidding! We have a pot in our house for the biggest and it always produces.

Just a couple questions.

When you use a glow stick for the pout are you putting it on the glow bait somehow?

Also where did you find the glow blue bait that looked like a mud puppy? Do you know who makes it?

Thanks,

PLEV

Plev,

I did some looking and the lure he was using is a Dragon Nymth, Nite lite Blue Glow.Produced by Maynards Tackle. He purchased it at the ice show. The glow sticks have a little rubber piece that you can attach it to the hook. I think they are a northland product.

Things might change a little because the snow has covered the ice and the super glow lures might not work as well?

The all time best pout lure was what we called the Beecon. It basically looked like a red eye but the red eye in the center lit up and blinked! Monster pout!!!!!

Thanks for the info. I'll try a search and see what I can find. We tried the Pout for the first time last year. Someone showed us how to clean them. Then we boiled them and dipped them in melted butter. A couple of the guys really liked them. I thought it was OK but to me nothing beats a Walleye. If I find the lures and try them this year I will post when we get back and let you know how we did.

Thanks again,

PLEV

Got back from Long point Tuesday night. Was to sick to report. Left for the point on sat at ten to 7 in morn and ran 200 miles of solid ice on the road. Crossing the bog was the worst part of it. OOk on to fishin. Sunday not so hot only mustered 3 walleye in my house. Gramps and the uncle got eleven. Monday picked up considerably. We fished in about 26-27 feet of water, managed a limit for everyone to take home and have a good fish dinner on monday night. Yummy fresh walleye. Got three pout. Caught and release 3 nice 24 inchers very fat fish, Most were caught right on the bottom, on techno glow red frosties, orange, yellow and a few on the chartruese buck shot rattle spoon, only got two on gold. The access is open and we drove out the truck on monday, about 17 inches of ice. Were where out to where the road just about ended from kelly plowing right amunst the retals, All good and fun very cold though, ride home better but the bog was still covered in ice. Once you got south of kelliher road were good. Considerable snow fell with about 6 inches while I was there. Will be back in feb for more action I hope. Look for me then, I seem to have the only polar sport with a yellow top out there. Till next time good fishin. cool.gif

      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!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      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.
    • Wanderer
      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.
