      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.

A friend of mine won a package at Izaty's that included a free launch, so I went with him. We had a blast! The captain tried a few different spots till we found em, 7' deep on the rocks. I was very pleased with the boat, the captain, and the bait runner. If you fish a lot, consider bringing your own spinning rod set up for slip bobbering. We brought own, as the poles they had were so so, and I like a longer rod, and lighter line than what they had. I think the trip is $35/person.

I would call and make sure that they have room on their boats. They usually have different time slots. 4 hour or 8 hour. It would suck to drive up there and not be able to get on.

My dad and I went out on a launch with Eddy's last night and had a great night. 38 'eyes caught in all (14 people on board) between 8:15pm and 10:00pm with a 28", 27" and a couple of 25"ers. Great people, great service. I recommend them highly.

Going out of Eddy's this weekend with the wife and another couple. We got a package deal, but I think the launch is around $30

mille lacs was fun, my buddy cought a 4 pound smallie and i ended up catching a 26 in walter and tons of others i think there was 9 keepers total (and tons of 13 and unders)out of 10-15 people on the boat. it was well worth the money i recomend izatys to every one looking to go on a future luanch.

We had the same luck out of eddy's My buddy's wife caught a 26in and we ended up keeping 6. I think we caought 30 fish with 11 people on the boat. The captain said we should be caughting them at 8:30, and it was like someone turned on a switch cause it was about 8:31 when we started hitting them. It was a GREAT time.

      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.

      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.
