      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.

Cooper Discovery STT Tires

Question

iffwalleyes

Just curious if anyone has a pair of these on their rig. I have BF Goodrich's and love them but these caught my eye the other day. Might just have to switch brands. They are for sure more rugged and a lot more aggresive tread. Wondering if anyone has some or knows someone with them? How are they for wear? Just how bad is the road noise?

The are definately a mud tire rather than an all-around all terrain tire. If your BFG's are AT's then these will be quite a bit different. The rubber compound is softer and will wear faster. Expect around 40-50K miles out of these on a fullsize rig. They will be louder on the road, but not bad. There will be a hum to them but nothing horrible.

Coopers are very good tires. The STT's are their max off-road tire. They will be great in the snow, mud, dirt etc. There is a bit of siping so they will help a bit in wet and icy conditions but don't expect much. These tires also run large compared to most tires in the same sizes. I think thats a good thing. Price is pretty good too.

I use Goodyear MTR's which is a pretty similar design and in the same pperformance category as these and I love them.I think they work great in the weather we have as well as the conditions sportmen find themselves in.

Excellent tires, except for wear. I won't run coopers anymore as my main tires, they just don't last. I do have them on my explorer which I use for fishing/hunting, but no more on my everyday vehicle.

I will probably stick with bf then. I do allot of highway driving. I usually get 60000 out of my bf. That is one thing i liked about the coopers they are cheaper.

Yeah, I think you're better off. I had a couple sets of Coopers and liked them but I got 60,000 miles out of my last set of Michelins and always topped out around 40 with the coopers. I guess that makes em' more expensive in the long run.

Coopers are a softer rubber and won't last as long. You can buy a less aggressive set of Coopers that will last longer, but it depends what you're looking for.

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
