      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.

I'll take a Laker over Salmon for eating.3or4 meals of salmon a year is enough for me. Eyes are still my favorite.

Eyes and Crappies for me. Nothing wrong with a Coho either. My wife loves salmon but Im not a big Laker fan unless smoked.

No matter what fish I love catching them. I know Cheffrey has some killer Laker and Salmon recipes. I need to get his Salmon Spread recipe thats awesome! tongue.gif

Iam with Northlander on this one. Walleyes and panfish taste the best I think. I do like small salmon in the pan. All my lakers go in the smoker except I might steak and grill one. Just don't care for them in the pan.

Jeez, maybe you guys down on Superior are just spoiled, and all your lakers are the giant yellow greaseball siscowet strain, which are good for three things: Tree and shrub fertilizer, sled dog food or the smoker.

Seriously, if you take a redfin (lean) laker of about 2 pounds (Burntside's full of 'em), fillet it like a walleye, roll it in a mix of half fryin magic and half shore lunch breading, and fry it in oil alongside a walleye and compare . . . mmmmmmm. grin.gif

Of course, this from the guy who throws in a handful of rock bass fillets when fixing sunny and crappie, and watching everyone at the table gulp them all down and throw compliments to the cook. In fact, on several occasions I've fixed 75 percent rockie fillets and only 25 percent sunny and crappie, and watched rock bass "haters" expound on how much better all that fish tasted than rock bass. (I'd insert an evil grin smilie here, but FM doesn't have one available).

I'm just back from a BWCA trip into Knife, Kek, Fraser, Ima, etc....with an experienced Laker guy and we cuaght lakers everyday (my first) and filleted up the 2-3 pounders right along with the Walleye's and I have to say that the laker was mighty fine...in fact I uttered the words, "this might be my new favorite fish....". I can't wait to go back in after some laker so I can pan fry them baby's!

Its pretty hard to beat the Red Fin strain. No breading and fried in butter, yum. smallieobsession, I hear ya on the Thomas lakers they're ever bit as good as LS Red Fins.

Steve,

Not surprised at all that you scarf down Rock Bass. Apparently the Trout have destroyed your taste buds laugh.gif

Sure Brule, I've had baked and broiled trout many a time, but we generally use those methods for the larger lakers and pan fry the small ones like walleye. grin.gif

      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.

      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.
