      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.

Harvey, I'm looking for a rangefinder. I went onto thier site and found the Laser 440 by Nikon for $219 it says the list price is $344 and your saving 36.24 percent, but I went online and Cabelas sells the same one for $219. Do you get deals here or no. Thanks

I had a buddy buy me a scope this fall. I am not going to say the store name but it does have a yellow sign. He got there variety scope it was a 3.5-10x42mm and it is listed on the box for 199.99 and when he rang it up and after taxes it was around 85 bucks. Gotta love how some places double the price of the product. I know this at cost but come on 100 dollar profit per scope:S just don't seem to fair to me. Thank God I have buddies working at differnt sporting goods stores laugh.gif. Just my 2 cents worth.

What I did was call and talked with Nick.The field classes I bought were about the same as other places and the scope was less.That is the price shipped to my door.I dont know what companies you are dealing with nor do I know thier policies.Give em a call and talk to him.

Somethimes one cannot factor only price and has to look at the whole picture as far as customer service and return policy.

It is hard to beat Cabela's in terms of Customer service and return policies and sometimes price.

We rip them apart on customer service, we are a MN company and give a great one on one service, and you can ask any member that has dealt with us. The retail price is the price you would see in a small retail store. There is also a price called M.A.P. pricing, this is the lowest price you can advertise the item at. Then there is the FM member pricing, this is the price that a sponsor for FM would give to the members. To get this price please email me!!

      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.

      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.
