      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.

Hey guys, don't know if many of you are golfers out there, but I recently got done putting together the 2nd Annual Denny Phelps Memorial Golf Tourney. The event is Sat Sept 23rd. Details are:

Friday eve Phelps Fish Fry at Turtle River Golf(aka Castle's) 6pm

Sat 10 am shotgun start 18 holes four person texas scramble golf.

Dinner and awards banquet 71 bar immediately after golf. I would say approx 5pm.

Entry fee is $50 per person-entry includes fish fry, golf, and 71 bar dinner after tourney. Five dollars out of each entry will be donated in Denny's name to Take A Kid Fishing. If you want to just attend Fish Fry Fri, the cost is only $5 and it will go to Take A Kid Fishing.

Sign up for tourney is at 71 bar and Turtle River Golf.

Thank You!!!!

Matt

Yeah Chris I know, Squirrel started putting this together for this date. It was the only time it could be. I knew it was the same time, but I need to do this. It will raise money for a good organization and a lot of people will have a lot of fun and have great food. Including me!! I have been having fishing withdrawals though, I would like to fish this tourney. It is well ran. Good luck to you. Take care.

Matt- Do we create our own team, or is it a drawing? I guess I should have read the whole post before my last one!

Scott - you need to create your own team. four people on a team. you can sign up by calling turtle river golf at 586-2681, or 71 bar during the day at 586-2274 talk to Terry, or you can call me at 586-2953 or 766-3818. leave a message if you can. Scott - if you don't think you want to play, or can't, you can at least attend the fish fry on friday eve and pay $5, or more if you want, that will go to take a kid fishing. I sincerely appreciate your interest.

No problem Matt- I talked to the wife about it and we are thinking about it. We will take in the fish fry for sure and see what happens from there.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      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!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      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.
    • Wanderer
      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.
