      Fishing Minnesota has 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. Initially 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 see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then 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.

missing bass in 24 hrs

Recommended Posts


Was on Tonka two days in a row and the big fish disapeared. Here is the scenairo:

the first day(tuesday) and second day Wend(full moon).

both days were hitting docks

both days the wind speed and direction were the same

the first day sunny the second day cloudy

hit the same three locations both days

the first day encounterd nice bass 3-5 lb on the docks caught two fish in each spot and left. did not want to burn the spot. had 1-2 more bites but did not purposely hook fish.

Wend. was taking some kids out fishing. had high hopes being a full moon.

on wend all the big fish vanished nothing but dinks on the docks. So I/we fished the outside edge of the inside weedline, in the weeds(cabbage), outside edge of weedline.

the sunnies were on the docks both days etc.

all the quality fish went by by. I am not sure if the fish went by by or the kids could not just hook bigger fish. They did have trouble seeing the line move when the fish took the senko etc.

i felt so bad for the kids they did manage to hook 9 fish/1 kid and 6 fish/second kid but all fish were between 9-13 inches.

any help welcome

thanks the addict

one thought... Maybe the bass aren't hiding in the shade under the docks as much when it is cloudy? I have noticed that my best dock fishing is when it is sunny.

Excactly, high sun = fish under docks, cloudy = fish roaming shallow flats.
