      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.

Don't know if you are staying right on Pimusche or nearby, but the water level is down on Pimusche making the public access pretty difficult to get out with your boat. So if you head out of the public, you need to make sure that the motor is up and there will be a couple of spots you will have to get your feet wet and do some pushing. Once out, concentrate along the shorelines (cabbage isn't out there like it normally is), bobber fishing using a jig tipped with a leech and you will find the panfish, also have had a few pike take the bait while bobber fishing the shorelines. Again, take it easy getting out on the water and at some of the humps. Good luck and let us know how you did!

Well caught alot of little northerns on little joe rigs with a minnow along the west shore and had a few big hits but nothing really to speak of. No walleyes at all and had about 15 crappies jigging just south of scenic hi way lodge on the other side of the cove with a jig and minnow. It was pretty windy which made it difficult. Look out up in the northern part of that lake. we hit a tree stump full bore and gave us a scare. The lake is down about 18 inches and we saw alot of stumps to the north. Night fishing produced only a few crappies. Drank alot of beer tho and had a good time. I will return next year. A frined of mine who goes to BSU says he has had good luck on bemidji with muskies. Has 15 on the year

Hey Trout, thanks for the report. With the water levels down we haven't been on Pimusche in about three weeks..it's pretty tough at the landing, and there are a few spots out there where you really have to watch it..but we've had good luck out there on the panfish.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      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.
