      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.

5:45am started out at half moon trolling perch shad raps #7 & #5.By 7am we landed 9 over the slot all around 24-25".trolled in 4'-12' most of the fish came from 8-10'

About 11 am we had 1 20"

Next bite was on spider island.first pass we landed 3 17"-18".Next pass we went out a little deeper to find nothing but big pike.Made about 20 passes in 13' to finish up for a full limit.Trolling speed had to be 1.75-2mph

So we set up some big rigs for those big pike.several 5-8lb's no hogs to be had when your ready.Then we hooked into a musky right behind the boat when we were reeling up are lines to call it a day.After 15 minutes of fun it finaly got off.

This morning we slept in after a nite out.8 am we started out at half moon.1st pass we were forced to troll inbetween several boats bobber fishing.28"er right smack in the middle of the bobbers.60 yards on each side of us we could see 5 bobbers.We turned around went back on the same path.Another 27 1/2"er.All the boats lifted anchor and started to troll.No more fish so we moved into the bay.

Went to 2 #5 perch shads 12 nice jumbo perch in 7'.Several 6"-10" eyes & 3 pike all about 3-4lbs.

Trolled are way back to the cabin 6'-15'FOW 2 23-24"ers

Talked to a few guys trolling.The guys using dark green colors got fish.We passed the info on to a couple guys.Later on in the day we ran into 1 of the guys he thanked us he was headed in with a limit.Not sure what reef he was fishing but he pointed at half moon.He said all his came from the last marker.He had to almost hit the marker with the shad he said.He held a couple up with a big smile.

Finaly i got lunch it only costed me about a grand in gas to catch my lunch he said.After we got home and i looked at my wallet i now know what he was talkin about

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.

      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.

      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.
