      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.

2006 DNR Conservation License Plate Design Contest

Recommended Posts

I just saw this - wouldn't it be nice if we got a FISH design for the third plate design?

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/contests/license_plate.html

If there are fish artists out there, I'd ask that they consider submitting entries for the contest. so I can change out my deer plate for a fish plate! :-)

In Mn. its walleyes and thats what I would like to see on Mn. plates. When people come to Mn. to go fishing they want walleye. A Muskie may not be bad though.

Not having the state fish (walleye for those who aren't sure) on the plates would be a travesty.

what would be wrong with a native brookie on a plate? they're a lot more colorful and pretty than a walleye. I think they taste better too tongue.gif

Also, a lot of their habitat is at risk in the SE due to current agricultural practices and development.

Randy, the only crummy thing about this contest is that I can't submit my brookie artwork as an entry since I'm on the ineligible list... frown.gif

I gave it a try and sent one in with the state fish on it...a walleye. Come on, if its a state plate it should have our state fish on it! Had to overnight it to make it there on time.

I think it turned out really well. If I make it into the finals I'll need you fellow FM'er friends to lend some support on the on-line poll.

Here it is. It lookes a lot better in person then from a scan. The left side is cut off a little because it didn't completely fit into my scanner. Tell me what you guys think!

Sorry, I think yours is better than all of those Leech.

Not to offend anyone if they designed one of them......I think they all stink.

Is that a walleye jumping out of the water???

I hope that's not supposed to be a Great Blue Heron, if so, it's the wrong color.

The Moose design is almost identical to the previous deer one.

ok that's enough negativity.

Sorry you didn't make it Leech frown.gif

I agree but since there has been a lot of hype about the timberwolf over the years, I have to admit that is a pretty cool design.

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff

      Anoka county union says it is opening in the sports authority building in Coon Rapids. Cant Wait!

      I've found it interesting that the past couple years we haven't seen quite the numbers of rustys on our beach in the summer. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There were a lot of cabbage beds on the North side of Pine Is. and on the far East end of Big Bay. Gone now! Cliff
    • Rick
      I never guarantee safety. Others in similar position are out on Shields. I would assume German is the same. I would do it just not telling you to do it.

      I have a skid house on Mille Lacs, the yellow perch has is no joke, camera all day long perfect sized perch for them to eat. The walleye numbers are strong, regardless what dnr says. The tough bite this year does kind of stink, but it's good for the lake. Every fish you catch is nice and healthy, and as previously stated usually big. We have been fortunate enough to get a couple slot fish (unicorns) out this year
    • FishinCT
      Just out of curiosity where were the cabbage beds on the east end? Rustys have been infested ever since we started fishing the east side

      shiners or suckers

      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"
