      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.

What's behind your signature? My signature is from a sign hanging in my den given to me my a friend. He remembered the first time we floated the Cloquet river and we said we would be done by 5 in the afternoon and it was dark by the time we finally got off the water, our girlfriends were not to happy waiting hours for us at the landing.

Being a big online computer gamer.. I was very familiar with a quote.. and I changed the original quote from "base" to "bass"... Here's the skinny on the quote (from Wikipedia):

"All your base are belong to us" (often referred to as "All Your Base" or abbreviated AYBABTU, AYBAB2U, or simply AYB) is an Engrish phrase that sparked an Internet phenomenon in 2001 and 2002. The text is taken from the opening cut scene of the English version of the 1989 Japanese video game Zero Wing by Toaplan. While the translation was generally poor, this phrase stood out as particularly humorous. From mid-to-late 2000 many images were digitally altered so that the phrase was added in, either obviously or discreetly, led by the Something Awful Forums[1]. Some of these images were compiled with those created and posted to a forum thread on TribalWar.com by their members; one of whom, known only as "Bad_CRC", created the AYBABTU Flash animation that was widely downloaded and later featured on various online and televised news outlets.

A good snowmobiling friend of mine use to say

"It snows everyday in heaven" - Doug Dinger #73

I believe its written that way on his headstone. He passed away in a snowmobiling accident 3 years back.

Something I've had to say to my kids many many times... and heard from my Dad & Grandpa when I was young. Kind of explains itself after that... cool.gif

A phrase an old coworker used to use, along the lines of "you know what I'm saying?". Still gets a pause in a conversation from someone who has never heard it before. Previous origins unknown, but I'd love to hear any opinions.

And, of course, the old Garage Logic "Good Luck!".

catching vs. fishing.

well my dad always had said that "you go out to fish, not to catch." there are to many that go out to catch, not to fish. fishing brings us closer to our being. he also said that he has been told that for every hour you spend fishing. adds an hour to the end of your life. so if you go out fishing you will never come home dissapointed. and if you just go out to catch, you may often come home dissapointed. ... paul

The first time I heard the quote on my signature was from an 80+ yr old guy that I used to fish with years ago.

I am very insecure about my weight when I put waders on and I hate it when other hunters stare and whisper things behind my back.

I just want to look my best out in the slough.

Well, it's a line in a movie that has always cracked me up. More importantly, it also the name of my ice shack on Mille Lacs.

A saying I find myself telling buddies who just casually fish, then sit, then maybe fish, then talk my ear off. So "Shut up and fish!"

My younger brother is notorious for hooking into a good fish and yelling "Got one!" only to discover a few seconds later the fish has broken his line or somehow managed to get off, which I then hear him say in a very frusterated tone...."Had one." It cracks me up cause it happens at least once everytime we're on the water together.

Everytime I USE to say things, I would say "And there you go" as I was trying to prove my correct point. I got some ribbing about this phrase so I hardly use it anymore, but it comes out time to time. When I do use it, I do hear about it grin.gif

I had to explain mine a little as a lot of people don't understand it. It's "shorthand".

See the itty bitty ducks?

Them are no ducks.

Oh yes they are, see the itty bitty wings?

While I'll be, them are ducks!

My 5th grade teacher wrote it on the board and no one got it til he explained it. I always remembered it after that. He was a Navy man and very strict. I got in a lot of trouble in his class but looking back, he was the best teacher I had. He also gave us a "test" that tested how well we read directions. The first line was "Fill in your name and do not write anything below." Or something like that. Needless to say, I filled in the entire page. It was like a survey or something from what I remember. I wish I could find it online, but I've tried to no avail.

Remember when the depth finder was called Grandpa?

saw this on a sign at the VRC near Vermillion, and it just kinda stuck in my mind. I was very close with my grandfather and was always amazed at how he was able to do just about everything so it fit him.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!
    • Bigfatbert
      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,
