      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.

Anybody from Roch interested in heading out tonight? I'll be fishing smallies in an area not far from Rochester. I'd like to leave around 7ish and fish till dark.

I've got an extra pair of waders if your lacking...

Shoot me an email or reply before 6:00pm

Won't be able to make it tonight. Gotta try to catch a few farmers to get permission for goose hunting. Have you been to SD lately? My last fishing trip of open water will be out there Sept 23rd weekend. Good luck tonight.

Nate Larson and I spend the shorter part of an hour and a half on the ZR in Oxbow Park last night. The rumors I've heard are true. Lots of smaller fish, but the larger ones are harder to find. I did get myself a pair that went a little better than my shoe size, but that's about it for size.

I had the best luck on a Mr. Twister peppered pumpkin color in the 3" size with a 1/8 oz THO blue jig. We had our best luck in deeper water and rapids, but rocks were key in both scenarios.

I'm thinking I'll throw a crawdad plastic in the mix on my next outing to oxbow.

We’ve got a rematch planned this Thursday. Wanna?

I gave Nate a couple of pointers today on where to fish at Oxbow. They are not plentiful, but I have caught smallies in the 17 to 19 inch range. Lots of fun on light gear.

Hey Lew,

Thans again for the pointers. I will let you know how I do! You will have to give me a full report of your fishing trip as well.

Well we only got on the water for a few casts tonight before the storms blew us off. I wanted to try a craw plastic, so I opted for the Berkley Power Bait crawdad brown with orange pinchers. I only got 1 fish on it, but it was the biggest of the evening. Nate caught a couple rock bass and some dink smallies. He was using a Mr. Twister 3" black/silver with a pink 1/8 oz jig head. We prob only fished for about 30 minutes... if that...

Not a trophy, but I don't make it out smallie fishing much so I thought I'd better snap a photo.

I am glad we got out of there when we did! Talk about some crazy weather. I am guessing that the streams will go up significantly with this rain. Make sure to post some more pics after this weekend.

It would have been nearly imposible to fish Oxbow with kids this weekend. Water was high, brown, and sizzling fast.

That's kind of what I figured. Thanks for the update. I hope that everyone had a good time nonetheless. Hopefully the water goes back down soon!

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
