      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.

Deitz,

Do you use this formula yourself? If so, where do you get the non-scent shampoo?

Thanks,

Mysterio

they had the same formula in field and stream except they used 1/2 cup baking soda. You should be able to find no-scent shampoo at any outdoors store, i know i have seen it at Gander Mountain.

yes I use this stuff, like its going out of style... Believe it or not.. I use it on my gym shoes, we use it when one of our cats pees on the carpet.. its ike magic!... I will give you one hint.. try and get the baking powder to disolve in the water first before you add the peroxide and the soap. And when you let the stuff sit, be sure to not put a cap on it... I then just put it in a spray bottle.

Well I can make a gallon of the stuff for about $2.50 and I go thought about 12 spray bottles of this a year by letting my dad and brother and friends use it when we go in the wood and They love the stuff and I also swear by it so it probally saves me about $80 a year. Last year I spent about $15 to make it and I made like I said about 12 bottles (or more. Figure that if You buy the stuff it is $8 per bottle (just a guess) That is $96 I would have spent. Plus this way you to not get skimpy with it and spray down good with it.

Well, Distilled water may cost you $1 a gallon?.. maybe a little more.. peroxide, maybe another $1... The baking soda I always just have laying around the house anyway, same as no scent shampoo.. and I have always felt scent killer was very expensive... so I didn't use very much to save money.. Now I figure I can make a gallon of it for like what?... $3... I think you are saving a ton... and if mixing 4 ingredients is trouble... then buy the stuff...I figgure it took me about 5 mins to mix it up?

Thanks Guys.

I have an R/O(reverse osmosis)system in my house.Do you think the water from this would substitute for distilled?

Dehumidifier water works in place of distilled water. I used hydrogen peroxide that came from a liquid non clorinated shock for pools and hot tubs. I read the stuff in the brown bottles has something else in it that can reduce it's effectiveness. I used the green liquid body soap instead of laundry soap and it bubbled up quite a bit. The green stuff has an active ingredient that inhibits bacteria growth.

The recipe I saw is:

1 quart distilled H20

1 quart 3% H10

1 oz. liquid scent free laundry soap

1/4 cup baking soda

I wanted to save a few pennys so I went to the local dollar store and found every thing but the sent free soap.

baking soda 2 for a buck

peroxide 2 for a buck

distilled water 1 gallon a buck

sent free laundry soap 6.53 bucks

mix time 5-7 min

if this works and I score the monster buck its "priceless"

Is the baking soda suppose to clump up after it sits a couple of days or should I add more distilled 02. I stirred it up and it seamed to disolve again I'll check it in a day or two, to see what its like. I follow the directions to a tee, except doubling it

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      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!!!
