      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.

That Dirty dog eyeguy caught one more fish than me today, again. He also caught the largest fish. Well, at least it was a nice day (for Nov 20th) tongue.gif. I'm not sure how much more I'm going to get out. eyeguy and I were talking about trying around Monti the next time it's in the 40's. Hopefully that won't be until May grin.gif. Anybody else still getting some (fish)? smirk.gif

Nope it isn't just you. Water temps on my graph yesterday showed 33.7!!! BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! No wonder all I could muster up was one smally, a unintentionally foul hooked cat and a dink northern. But, I did notice a couple of other guys out that were using minnows with no aparent luck.... So I guess just catching a few is ok.....crazy.gif

A bit chilly out for this kid even with the cold gear on. I spent all of 2.5 hours fishing. Might have to opt for some warmer water the next time.... grin.gif

Where do they go? It seems like either they are still in the same spots but aren't feeding, or they move. What are the cold water patterns for the river smallies? confused.gif

The go to Sartell! Actually, I think they just stop feeding for the most part. They won't chase anything because they are conserving energy. It has to be easy picking for them. It looks like the boat is gonna be put up for the year now. Cold weather all this week! Boo!

I'll hopefully be down on Pool 2 and 4 for early spring bassin'. Pool 2 has some good bass, but you've got to weed out the mixed bag... lots of sheepies, dogfish, crappie, eyes, dink snakes, etc... Prime example - this summer on my way out fishing on the upper 'sippi, had an extra 45 minutes, swung by a shore spot & on 4 consecutive casts caught 4 different fish (smallie, pike, 'eye, & white bass)

Either way - I've got all my gear stored for the winter. time to start tuneups on reels, clean the tackle bag out, get my stuff organized, etc...

He's a jerk and he knows it, half the members of that site are one step away from being peta members, anyway... I guess if he ever really watched the boat perform he might just shut his mouth, instead of just looking at the top speed!

I'd be happy to forward the site addy. Drop me a email.

It is a river smallmouth site, mainly east coast guys. 99% are great guys.

Rock Hopper likes to "poke the bear" every so often. He works for the PA DNR and doesn't think highly of me or RiverPros, but he's harmless.

KT, you have mail. I am hoping to get out on the river over thannksgiving. It may have to be in 30 degree temps. My deer hunting is done with the Wisconsin opener finished. Going after some Chinese Chickens this weekend for a couple days and then the river. My 40 th straight year at deer opener with my Father who is 83, I count my blessings ever day that I get to enjoy with him. He will be pheasant hunting with us this week end. Too many things I want to do (dang work gets in the way lol).

Hopefully the weather guys are wrong about the temps this week. lol

      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

      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.
