      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.

Caught 29" and 31" walleyes, about 15 minutes apart. Trying to figure how to post the pic's. I followed the instructions on the pic's thread, obviously missing something. Will keep trying.

What part of the river? Downsteam of St Paul or Dam/Confluence area?

I was out yesterday above the confluence. We were only out from 2-5pm or so and managed 6 eyes and 10 fat striped bass. The biggest eye was 20".

We were out in my dad's new glass boat, the river makes him nervous, so we didnt hit some of my favorite rocky shorelines.

Considering the time we were out and the bright sun, I think the bite would be pretty good.

The flow was decent (compared to the last few months), the leaves are starting to come down and litter the water. Water temps are just below 70 degrees.

It is a great time of year to be on the river!

Jig & minnow. We were downstream from the Hardman ave. launch. 6 lb. mono. 1/4 oz. jig and a minnow. Vertical jigging. I did'nt even bring any artificials at all. Wish I had though, the whities were crashing the surface like crazy. I have never marked or seen on the surface, so many baitfish in my life. This was only my second time down there. Usually fish Little Falls area, but I'm thinking of spending some more time in pool 2. Good fishing guy's!

pike11,I'd have to say a couple miles or so. Since I'm not too familiar to that area, I"ll try to describe. I know there were some island's just down stream from us, and they were full of seagull's and pelican's. Was fishing a bar off of one of the points of a small bay. Sorry this is so vague. This is the best I can do. Good luck down there.

Rivernut,

I could post a couple pictures for you if you would like! Its really pretty easy to do. Just go to image shack and it will bring you into the hosting site. I download all my pics to the computer right from the camera and save it in my documents. When you get into the host site hit browse and it bring you into your documents. Select the picture you wish to use and be sure to check the little box below the browse option to resize the pic for the forums.

It was about 10ft. Glow fireball jig and a fathead minnow. We were fishing a sandbar back in a bay. Still excited about that day. Probably the biggest 'eye I'll ever see. But who know's, there are a lot bigger fish down there to be had. Good luck. Get one of those 35"ers.

      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.

      Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"

      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.

      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.

      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.
