      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 up all last week. Graphed fish all over, but could only get action down deep. Another fellow I talked to was worm draggin' on the reefs, and was only rewarded with the smaller sized fish, and not too many either.My action was at 32~~35 feet out in the mud. Fishing still good when I left Sunday

Got about 40 today. Quite a few in the 11- 16" range. Did manage a nice limit for 2 guys from 17-19" plus a couple really nice saugies. 28" was the biggest along with a 24, 25 and 8 or 9 low 20's slot fish. Fished deep water around Arnesens, Lemms and 16 Mile. Lemms was dead and 16 Mile was close to dead. Green/chrome reef runner and Deep Taildancers in gold perch and firetiger were best in that order. Got a few downrigging a little deeper also. Saw a dead sturgeon floating this morning and did a half a$$ed measurement on it. It looked to be around 62" long. It was pretty bloated but it looked huge. Will post a pic later.

I was out this afternoon, got a few. Kept losing them, short biters i guess. Fished all between Arnesens and Lemms with the best action drifting bait over Arnesens towards evening. There was a good chop goin by then. From the east but better than nothing.

We fished Tuesday and Wednesday. The baitfishing is getting tougher, but the mud is loaded. The fish didn't seem to care a lot about crank color but the bigger fish were higher off the bottom. There are a lot of fish fairly close to shore--28 to 30 feet--off Pine Island. Lots of boats too.

How bad was the storm on the lake last night???

Good luck.

We did okay trolling Tuesday, forty or so came to the boat. High point of the day was a double of 25+ inchers, 7 or 8 in the slot, no WHOPPERS at all this time.

Has anyone seen the new #9 Deep Taildancers on store shelves yet? I may peel out of here for GFKS this afternoon so I can try and find some. Be nice to try some out here over the weekend!!!

First of all I want to thank you guys for all your informative reports. I really appreciate learning whats happening up on the "Pond". A friend of mine who has only fished LOW a few times and I went up Wed. and bait fished the rocks east of Gull, which was very slow, we did better on Arnesen's Reef. Came into Warroad about 6 PM and the sirens were blaring, and the police were driving up and down the streets using there bull horns warning everyone to seek shelter, it looked like another tornado was in the making, we parked and went into a downtown building and I asked if they had a basement, which they did so we stayed there for supper, but nothing bad materialized. We went out yesterday and fished Arnesen's Reef (we had the downgriggers along) but decided to bait fish again, we picked up a 25" and some real nice eaters, then my buddy slammed into a real horse, after he finally got the walleye up and got it netted, it measured 31.5" and weighed 11.5#. What a pig, that gal is going on my buddy's wall. We were using gold spinner rigs with large crawlers. What a fun trip, we never saw a white cap in two days which was a treat also.

Travis, a size 9 deep version just came out 8/15. None yet in the GFKS stores last nite, Steve at Log Cabin Bait told me he'd have em in stock at his store next week. They have another deep diving minnow bait fresh out too that looked interesting....Can't remember the name of it though.

Did much better yesterday. Day started off with alot of smaller fish but moved around and did good. Did best trolling some flats in about 32 fow w/ the lures set high. Fish just everywhere, except right on the reefs. Tried jigging a few spots till after dark w/ no luck. No magnum hoggers but ended up with all 19 inch eaters. What a diference in the frying pan.

We were out on Sat. also and did O.K. Got a 29.5", 27.5, 26.5, & 25. Kept 6 nice walleyes and 2 decent saugers. Also caught a couple more low 20's and a dozen or so dinks. Best luck was north of Arnesens in the deeper water.

Question from one of the many poor slobs that can only enjoy the pain of reading about the great bite that's been going on this summer and hopefully into the fall. With the fish going nuts through late summer and the water levels down for the fall bite what are some educated guesses as to what these fish might do in October when they should be running the river. Do you think they'll continue to rome the mud.... Wanted to open the line of questioning.

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff

      Anoka county union says it is opening in the sports authority building in Coon Rapids. Cant Wait!

      I've found it interesting that the past couple years we haven't seen quite the numbers of rustys on our beach in the summer. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There were a lot of cabbage beds on the North side of Pine Is. and on the far East end of Big Bay. Gone now! Cliff
    • Rick
      I never guarantee safety. Others in similar position are out on Shields. I would assume German is the same. I would do it just not telling you to do it.

      I have a skid house on Mille Lacs, the yellow perch has is no joke, camera all day long perfect sized perch for them to eat. The walleye numbers are strong, regardless what dnr says. The tough bite this year does kind of stink, but it's good for the lake. Every fish you catch is nice and healthy, and as previously stated usually big. We have been fortunate enough to get a couple slot fish (unicorns) out this year
    • FishinCT
      Just out of curiosity where were the cabbage beds on the east end? Rustys have been infested ever since we started fishing the east side 
    • Jplante
      shiners or suckers

      The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.

      Hey all, Heading to Mille Lacs tomorrow.  What has been the hot bait?  Shiners, fatheads??? Flash "Set the Hook"
