      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has 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. Initially 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 see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then 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.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

You are talking Canada right???

Try posting it in the Canada Forum. I know Clay is part of the Wabigoon River Watershed, so you can expect cloudy water from the..CLAY lol. There should be some nice pike and walleyes, and some large Musky if you can find them. Cant help ya out anymore cause I dont hear any reports about Clay and have never been there myself..

Just returned from Clay late last night. Spent a week there. First time on the lake.We had great fishing. Lots of 20 plus walleye. Largest 26.5 Met a few others there from Esko. They came when we were leaving. Accomodations very good. Nice dockage, power, landings and protection. Lots of eagles to watch, loads of grouse around and many deer, No wolves though and no moose spotted.. Weather was in the hi 70's to low 80's. Had to hunt for deep water reefs, but once you found the ciscoes, the bite was great. All in all it is a very healthy lake. Gosh I wish we had the forage bases in our local lakes that they have up there. It was a great trip. i recommend it to anyone who loves to fish walleye.

      On Horseshoe the icw is in great shape.   Snow pack is mostly melted and frozen.   Any 2wd vehicle can move around easily.   Don

      Grundy, I have the Navionics  lake app on my phone and it works great! I have also seen the OnX  phone app in action and it is very helpful! I ordered the chip for my hand held G.P.S. from Garmin on line. Not sure what the cost was. Cliff

      I am sure that would be interesting...

      If you have a smartphone you can download the OnX  hunting app. Gives all landowner names and land boundries. Also gives all state land, wildlife refuges etc. There is also a Navonics  app for downloading to a smartphone. It gives all the lake contours for fishing. These apps cost a little but you don't need to buy a gps or a chip for the gps. A lot cheaper IMO and you don't have to carry around another gadget.

      We've used it on a 19' ProV side by side with our friends Ranger. It holds the Ranger way better since it is a bit heavier, sits lower in the water catching less wind. Same model motors.

      Cliff, where did you get that and what was the cost? That would come in pretty handy for hunting spots and talking with land owners.

      I love a box call for windy days but like Chris said rack call h as it's place.  Even changing strikers can make a difference.

      I bought the Garmin hunt/view map for my hand held GPS. It shows the property lines and property owners. It seems to be fairly accurate in the areas that I have used it on. You will have to check to see what area you will need to get it for. Personally, I paid the $700 to have one of my property corner pins surveyed. You then have a legitimate and legal starting point to start from.  Cliff
