      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.

We made the same choice Travis. Had two over 18 in the box in the first hour. It was hard to justify keeping the next four we caught just over 15, so back they went. Ended up weighing four at around 8.5lbs total, kinda wonder if those other four would have got us in the low end of the money? Oh well, I'll do the same thing next year if we get a couple nice ones like that right off the bat. Thanks to all who helped out, congrats to the winners, and see ya there next year.

We made some choices early that cost us some cash too.

We had a 18.5, 19.3, and a pair of 22's in the first 1/2 hour... We didn't give much thought to tossing 15-16's back. Later on the bite died on us. My partner managed a 26.5 that had us both pretty excited for a while... nice big fat one too... We ended up weighing 5 fish for 10.? pounds...

Always next year...

Won a nice rod/reel combo as a door prize. Thanks Conway!

Seems we were all stupid that morning. My partner and I did the same thing. Oh well, I was just happy to weigh some fish this year. Last year was quite humbling to say the least. Another great tournament, I'll be back next year. Thanks to the crew at Streiff.

Nice to meet you Walleye Jon, breif as it was. Thanks to you and Fisky for rescuing my phone. I appreciate it.

Widetrack, I saw you around a few times but didn't get a chance to come over and say hi. Maybe next time. Did you get the e-mail I sent you a while back?

We were live bait fishing with crawlers and leeches. We started at 5 mile and then to Arneson's until 12:30 and back to 5 mile for the last 6 slots. We only had 1-2lb fish at 12:20 and then the right one bit. When we got back to 5 mile the bite was on in a very small spot and we picked up the rest of our limit before 2:45pm.

tuffboy,

That was me in the Lund next to you on 5 that gave you the thumbs up when you were pulling out. Good job. Your marker was right on our way point from pre-fishing, I guess great minds think alike.

Travis, I got to fish with your buddy Heiser on Sat. Very nice ride in that Tracker Tundra. Pretty slow day up until 3:00 but the last 2 hours made up for it. Dad and I were tied up right behind you at the dock in that Alumacrap boat at the tourney.

Ripper, were you our pulling plugs out of Arnesens on Saturday? We saw a Tundra cruising around the rocks. We were the white Yarcraft kind of sitting by ourselves on Arnesens. On Friday some friends did pretty well longlining cranks south of 16 mile.

We were pulling plugs out there. I remember you guys. You were backtrolling, correct? How did you do? I can't wait to get back up there. Lip Ripper kept me out of all his good spots though. J/K

Ya, we were working a small piece of the deep stuff-29'-that had eyes, sauger and big perch. Donno why they were in that spot but there were lots of them. How long have you had the Tundra? I'm going to a wheel next year and Tundras are on my short list.

My Tundra is a 2005. I will be selling it this fall. I've quit telling people how awesome the ride is and make them go for a ride. Ask Lip Ripper, he'll tell ya. We caught one nice perch on Sat as well.

      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.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet
    • tca12
      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.  
    • IceHawk
      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. 
    • mrpike1973
      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.
