      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.

Has any one ever had a coyote steal their dead geese from the decoys?

Last weekend I was hunting a 40 acre oat field with some friends south of harding, when all of a sudden a coyote came out of the woods and snatched up one of are dead geese. It scared the sh*t out of me...must have came within 10 feet of us....(Contact Us Please) those eliminator blinds must work becuase I don't think he even knew we were there? Has anyone else had that happen to them? Should I have put some F-shot into him?

This must be rhetorical question because the answer is so obviously yes it isn't worth answering. Although it does make we wonder...who in the world shoots F-shot anymore???

You are wondering if you should have shot a coyote at 10 yds? I would have dump a few rounds in the thing.

They still make F shot???? LOL

Never a yote, but in Alaska a few years back the Bald Eagles were taking our dead ducks right out of the decoys. I wasn't about to shoot at one of those though grin.gif I would definately drop the yote in a new york minute. F shot, T shot, even BB will bring them down.

I don't think I could have resisted popping him if he didn't even touch any birds.

Had a yote sneak up on bigfoot dekes last yr. My lab saw it and wanted to go after it. As she started to break i nicked her with the collar in which she yelped. When the yote heard that he came on a dead run towards me. Must of thought she was another yote or something. I layed down behing a deke and dumped him with BBB when he got within 35 yards. (actually he ran down to a slough about 100yds away and died) 2nd time i had a yote sneak up on goose dekes.

      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.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff
