      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.

3D camo outfits

Recommended Posts

R. Miller

Just wondering who has the full 3d suits for bowhunting. Gander Mountain's Guide Series jacket/pants combo looks like the best for the price at about $100. I can't tell if I'm a fan or not. It looks like you'd be covered pretty good, but I thought in might be a pain if the outfits easily catch burs, etc. Any thoughts from people who own them?

I own a set of 3D camo. I've had them so long that I can't remember the brand. Anyway, they hide you great, especially if their is a little breeze (makes the leaves move). I hunt really thick country and your thoughts about burs are right on. I pick up a lot of cockle burs and those @#$**&$ little things with the two prongs. The camo is really effective though. Works well on turkeys too.

Not usually a fan of cheapo products cause you usually get what you pay for. But I bought a so-called bug suit from Cabelas last year for $60 that doesn't work worth a lick for bugs but sure provides nice 3d leafy camo. It is basically mesh, so you can wear it early to late season over whatever clothing you like if you get a size with a little room to it.

On a sidenote from the sounds of it the little two prong things you're talking about are cat claw, at least that's what we call them. They seem to grow in really thick in mowed or logged areas, beaver ponds that go dry, that kind of stuff. I agree they're very annoying. My brother had a sweatshirt a few years back that got those little round burrs that are a little smaller than pea sized, along with cat claw all over it. We threw it in the wood furnace. He picked for probably half an hour & you couldn't even tell he'd started.

bigbucks,

Just talked to my dad (he's better with the botany) and that's exactly what he called them. I had the same thing happen to a wool sweater last year and I didn't even know where to start. I do seem to pick them up in areas that have been cut in the las five years or so. Thanks for the info.

One more hint, the stuff you see flowering yellow right now in the dry swamps is the plants that will contain those little two pronged &()&()&(&(*&(*!!!! But what are you going to do when your pheasant dog is hot and leads you right thru them? Thats why your outer layer better be something that doesn't let them stick or you'll be doing the burn thing, as you mentioned.

I have an ASAT suit that I wear if I know I will be scouting/hunting or groud hunting. Its a pretty sweet suit. I have had other hunters walk right by me and never see me. its kinda fun.

      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
