      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.

DuluthMedic,

I can't tell you where to fish on this lake but if you need lake to choose from let me start out by suggesting Winnie. You should be able to find a place to stay between Deer River and Winnie itself.

I'm sure others may have a little more info. Hope you have good time on your trip.

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

If you want to pitch a tent I'd recommend Kabetogama. Island campsites all over and the fishing should be improving and moving toward a strong fall bite. Lots hiking trails. If you want to stay on shore Harmony Beach Resort on the east end has a nice campground. The owners are nice people and very helpful with the fishing information. There are several other resorts in the area as well

Bring your tent along and go inland (North) of the Cascade River. Fourmile, Wilson, Whitefish, Section 18, Toohey, Harriet all have eyes and most camping. Theres a few trout lakes in the area too.

If your up for camping check out Savannah Portage State Park near McGregor. There are a couple of lakes in the park. We caught largemouth and pike in one of the them (Shumway?) and there are trout in another (Loon?). I believe the lakes are electric motors only.

I just did the exact thing. Stayed at the Rambler Inn in I-Falls and fished Rainy Lake. Beautiful lake and a lot of nice fish. I didnt catch a bunch but I watched Fishmeister and his guys put on a clinic. If ya want more info e-mail me.

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.

      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!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      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.

      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.

      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.
