      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.

Was great yesterday. Eating size walleyes and huge bluegill caught off bottom bouncers and crawler harness. Used the bottom bouncer more like a downrigger because of snags. Had a great breakfast this morning. Plus, got to play with my new boat cool.gif

Thanks. I'd been on them, then kind of lost 'em. Hope to get the wife and daughter out this weekend - 'spose you were moving right along. I've been using white corkies on a rig - 3'-4' above my slip sinker with a crawler.

Has anybody been up to fish the last week or so? My girlfriend wants to go fishing on Saturday. Just hoping for a report on if the eye's are biting or if I just entertain her with sunnies. Because they're delicious too!

At this time last year we had a blast drifting 1/8th oz. jigs and minnows over submerged weeds by Dock Island. We caught some huge perch and some nice sunnies as well as nice eyes.

It was truly a wedding of our dreams!! We had 75 people on the island and even had a float plane so the "new" wife could throw her flowers from it!! We left the dock cause the pelicans just loved it!! We did get some heat from MP&L but told they we werent intreasted in "Squatting rights" as we worded the island all summer long...... I sure hope people take care of the island like we did!! We will be up there tomorrow to celibrate our anniverisy. If your out there we will be in a white and tan SmokerCraft.... Say HI!!!

I dont think the "dock island" referred to here is the same one You got married on as it wont fit 75 people,,,,Im thinking You had your cerimony at the campsite with the gardens planted on the west side of the lake ,,,,birch/dock island is almost due south of the public landing

Happy Anniversary!!!!!!!!

Well my weekend of fishing didn't make it out of the driveway. Hooked up the boat bought it to the front of the house, got out to lock up the house, came around the front end of my truck and saw a beautifully colored puddle that smelled so sweet! frown.gif Blew my water pump. But at least it happened in my driveway I guess. Better there than the landing. I guess I needed to do yard work anyways.

      Hey @jlang_04, i'm looking to take my kids down that area and was curious how's the ice for a 3/4 ton with a ice castle 8x24. I'm sure the ice is thick enough but I also know some lakes are aerated or have current and the ice can be soft in some spots. So I just want to be safe with my family. Also, how's the fishing down there?  Thanks, Justin

      Thanks guys.

      Up until about seven or eight years ago we were on Head-o-lakes bay. Minimal to no Rustys. Just the old school guys with the big blue boxer-mit claws. We were seeing rounded gobies.  We're on Frazer now. Wow! It's indescribable how many of those buggers there are. We've been trying to do our part by having frequent crawfish boils. Haven't made a dent but fun and tasty to try.

      will definitely be hunting turkeys again this year.  Love chasing these birds. Intend to go the archery route this year for the first time.  I have 2 kids that always are excited every year, until a couple of early mornings wain thier enthusiasm!  Figuring archery will allow me go on those days the kids dont want to wake up and I think I have something figured out.  Hope my skills will be up to the challenge.

      I've had very good luck with them also. Always pick some up before heading out on the lake.

      Was thinking about heading up the shore for some open water fishing. Was just wondering if their is alot of ice floating around and if not wat kind of wind would make it difficult to fish from shore? Thanks

      There is a bunch of walleyes in Mille lacs and for the first time in a long time there is  bait fish for them to eat. Mille lacs is a son of a gun to fish if there is a bunch of bait for walleyes to eat. It’s still one the best walleye fisheries in the world.

      Wait until open water season.  It was ranked #1 in the country for bass for a reason.  Its also ranked #6 in the nation for muskies too if you have enough patience to target them. A recent review of Mille Lacs was conducted by an independent Biologist from Lake Erie and found that what the DNR has done with that lake has been fair, accurate, and appropriate in terms of regulation/harvest/restrictions.  Course, some business owners might say otherwise but the science and data has been found to be true.
    • gimruis
      I did not draw an early season permit.  I may be able to snag a surplus season B, otherwise it will be a later season for me this spring.  The birds are getting SMART.  They have refused to listen to any calls and they are decoy shy so I haven't been using calls or decoys for a while now.  Rather, I just sit there and wait on a travel route and hope they walk within range (sort of like deer hunting I guess).  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Scouting is obviously important.  What has also really helped is the use of Winchester Longbeard XR ammo.  I have harvested turkeys out to 60 yards with it in recent years.
