      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.

Who is bringing your hunting partner to the Game Fair?

I am probably bringing my two female Setters (so long as neither is in heat). smile.gif

I usally leave the dog at home. I'm bringing my kids though. Adding my dog to the mix makes it less enjoyable for me and one more thing to keep track of.

I am going this Sunday with the dog and next Sunday to buy my decoys if they will deal on them.

My lab did great last year on the Iams Flurry, placed second over all for the weekend I went.

She won't jump off the dock though, that caused her to miss the time by a few seconds.

Make sure your vaccinations are up to date... I know gentleman who's dog contracted distemper 2 years ago. The vet deduced it was from bringing him to Game Fair and drinking out of a "community" bucket. She had been vaccinated though I believe it was at the 'tail end' or maybe a little past when she was due. Just verify that the hound is good to go!

Good Luck!

Come say "hi" to me at the American Heritage Hunt Club booth. I'll have a great deal on pheasant wings!

It would be fun to put a face with all the people we know by their forum names!

I'm bringing my 11-mo Yellow lab Jed on Friday AM. He's a freak about jumping off the dock. We'll see how he does!

I remember the first time my dog (Sam)did the dock jump at the game fair. It was exciting to see what he would do as well as hoping he wouldn't embarress me. crazy.gif We will be there Friday afternoon.

After his first try which was a total disaster, Jed jumped 16 feet on his 2nd attempt.

The little Jack Russell terrier who went before him was a sight to see... what a hoot!

I put two dogs in the pointing competition. They were so confused as to why I was holding on to them with a 10' check cord. lol. They both stopped a couple times (which took up valuable time) to ask... What the "F"? Both pointed 2 birds with VERY solid points. If nothing else they got to have some fun finding some birds.

How far did the terrier jump?

The one I saw was 8 or 9 feet. Not a long jump but hilarious the way he hurled himself off the dock.

And, dragging back the duck was funny too. The dog was not much bigger than the duck dummy.

Im not sure, but the Jack Russel you are talkin about might just be my uncles dog. And he got 10 feet outta it. He has 2 that he brings up there along with his chesey. One has really wirey hair(cant remember that ones name) and the other has short hair(Jake). Last year he jumped his Chesey(My avatar has him in it) and it ran to the end of the dock and just plopped in the water! If anyone is lookin for a place to park next year my uncle lives right on the road to Game Fair(First house on the left after u turn off armstrong). He parks the cars for ya and dont charge a arm and a leg. Heck if your lookin for a place to park a small rv he has tons of room for that too. Just tell him his nephew Bill sent ya! wink.gif

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.

      this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area? 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.

      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!
    • Rick
      I hear the panfish are kicking it up a bit? Any word out there?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      awesome feedback! thank you so much for the info! Ill get up ther next year, i dont want to keep any i just want to catch some nice eyes and northern.....hell, whatever! ive been in a sleeper 5 times on LOW and we only had one real good trip. upper red lake once in a sleeper caught 3 eyes in 3 days. i dont mind if i catch one or two fish, its all about the experience for me on the big water. but the girlfriend is a hard one to convince at times for a return trip if the fishing is slow. were headed to fairbault this weekend, i hope we get into something. thanks again guys! ill post a report on our trip. good luck on the ice!

      Well who else is going after long beards this spring? I was drawn for season B again no surprise. There were surplus tags left as there were last couple years.  Really like the new approach to not having to apply for the later seasons spreads the hunters out and gives guys like me the opportunity to get after them early   Been out doing some scouting and been seeing some big wintering flocks one I was glassing other day had over 60 birds in it! They have really been working over the picked corn lately.  Oh cant wait to hear the first gobble of the year

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff
