      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.

Question

rippenlips

It will handle a few colors but not a 100yd spool.

what is the best way to spool this stuff. I was told to super glue the line to the spool and start reeling it in?

I have that same reel, but plan on using Power Pro 10/2. I have never owned a baitcaster in my life. I'm currently waiting for my Loomis crank rods to come in the mail. How do I put this power pro on this thing. Thanks for the help guys laugh.gif

The sg47lca will hold 100 yards of 27lb test lead.I put a little duct tape around the spool to get the line started.Just the lead though no backer,ive never fished deep enough to use all ten colors so for me it works.As far as putting power pro on the 27 you will need to use backer.I keep around 300 feet of pp on the spool.Make sure you put enough backer on so when you spool up your pp the reel is at full capacity,this helps to get an accurate reading on your line counter.

backer is just mono that I put on the spool to take up space on the spool.Usually just some old line that id be throwin out anyway.some folks tie their backer line to the line their gonna use but I dont bother.

If the lead core is a different color every 30 feet, why do you need the line counter?

thanks

Koldfront..Your right the line does change colors every 30feet,and its not critical that you have a line counter.However for me the line counter adds a little bit more on repeatability if im trolling a certain depth and say inbetween colors.Im not sure how much difference in price there is between a line counter and one without,but to me its worth the price.

      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"

      There are notes in some of the other recent LOTW posts on Knights/Bridges reefs.  I have no personal recent experience to share at this time.

      Our group is coming up March 10-13 this year instead of the typical mid-Feb trip.  We usually hit the reefs/islands in Feb with reasonable success, so I'm curious if that pattern is going at the moment.  Never fished LOW in mid-March, so we're not exactly sure how to approach things.  The current reports sound a bit slow at the moment, which probably isn't all that unusual for this time of year.  If anyone has any first hand knowledge of the reef/island bite, you can either response or PM me.  Thx.

      I like to fish a frozen shiner along with a live fathead on a single hook.  Even though the shiner is dead, I think the movement of the fathead creates the illusion that it's a live shiner.  It's worked for me many times anyway and it's usually better than either a frozen shiner or fathead by themselves.

      Begining to think it's going too be a really bad year.  Couples days ago was out, could not get anything to bite, switched up lures half dozen times. Did not help

      Darn you guys!!   How am I supposed to stay at work and pretend to be interested now? There's nothing better than bow hunting turkeys in the spring after a long winter!

      Hey all just a reminder you will need a new license March 1!! Well it looks like we should be ice fishing for another month or more. There is some coming, so if you need to get you house off the lake it might be wise do it now. bites: green crappies, little elk gills sorting but you will catch them eaters, skogman has good from numbers of gills and crappies, and Lori lake for crappies. the turkey fever is starting to set in for me

      Hi @Rick, I'm also looking to take my family out this weekend. I  have a 3/4 ton with a 8x24 ice castle. Was looking at Shields or German. Is it pretty safe with my rig? I know some of these smaller lakes are aerated and can have some soft spots. Just want to be extra safe with the family. Also, the fishing been ok down there? Thanks in advance! Justin

      Hey @jlang_04, i'm looking to take my kids down that area and was curious how's the ice for a 3/4 ton with a ice castle 8x24. I'm sure the ice is thick enough but I also know some lakes are aerated or have current and the ice can be soft in some spots. So I just want to be safe with my family. Also, how's the fishing down there?  Thanks, Justin
