      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.

NICE TO SEE JOHN & CHAD WIN THE I. FALLS BASS CHAMPIONSHIP, THESE BOYS CAN FISH...MANY YEARS AGO I HELPED WEIGH THEIR BASS IN A TOURNEY PUT ON BY DENNYS SUPER 30, AND I BELEIVE STILL HOLD THE RECORD FOR THE LARGEST 5 BASS WEIGHED IN A RAINY(U.S.) SIDE. SEEMS LIKE IT WAS 25.5 & A 2ND DAY OF 22.5...THEY WERE BASS LIKE I HAD NEVER SAW BEFORE, WHEN THEY GET MASSIVE IN SIZE, THE STRIPES REALLY STAND OUT. THEY TOOK HOME A CHECK FOR 8,000 THAT DAY, AND THEN TODAY SET A NEW 2 DAY BAG RECORD FOR THE I FALLS BASS TOURNEY, AND TOOK 10 GRAND TODAY. THIS MORNING AT HARDEES, SOME OF THE BASS FISHERMAN STOPPED IN AND I TOLD THEM I WOULD PUT MY MONEY ON JOHN & CHAD, BECAUSE YESTERDAY THEY DID WELL ON THE LAKE & TODAY THEY HAD THE RIVER, SO I FIGURED THEY WOULD GET ANOTHER BIG BAG TODAY + THEY KNOW THE WATERS. SO I THINK THEIR VERY DESERVING!!!

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Congrats to Chad and John. I went to school with both of them at BSU, unfortunately I haven't run into them in quite a few years. Good to hear they are successful.

I still wonder if John catches all those fish in his scrapbook, I seem to remember a fish or two of mine in there with him holding it. Hmmm?

Just kidding John.

Thank you to everyone We had a blast again at the I falls championship. We love to come up and fish Rainy lake.

Fishmeister the bags from the Denny's were not quite that big! We did have 21lbs the first day and 17 the second day.

the 21 lb bag was still a load, the only other bag bigger was weighed at the Fort event By Raveling and Luhman they had close to 22lbs one day.

Again I want to thank the volunteers and the tournament committee they did a great job.

for any of you that see him Congratulate Gary Potter with out his work this tournament would not have happened.

I alos want to thank My partner Chad! He has now won 50% of the major bass tournaments on Rainy lake MN side!!!

      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.  
    • IceHawk
      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. 
    • mrpike1973
      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.
