      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.

I doubt there is anywhere that you can view live images via satellite. I would think that would be an invasion of privacy or something.

I think what Harvey had in mind was a real time picture to view real time conditions. Boy, I wish there was such a thing. I guarantee you that it's "out there", just not available to the general public wink.gif

Google Earth is a great program. Although a lot of parts of MN arent all that clear like the large, popular cities. Even if you cant see your house in MN its still an awesome program to play around with. Also, if you want to find a pretty good quality aerial photo, try Terraserver. The pics may be pretty dated though, like 10 years or so old. But still cool.

For county by county MN aerial maps google search for LMIC (Land Management Information Center) and go to the section 'NAIP 2003 and 2003-04 Aerial Photography'

These are'.sid' files - aerial coverage for most MN counties, flown 2003-2004. There's a little learning curve to acquiring and using the data, but the help files are there. A plug-in for MS explorer is required to view, and its a free download from Lizardtech. Once installed, you can view the files from your browser. County files are large to download - bonus if you have high speed. You might be able to order CD's as well...

Very detailed, colored maps!!

Google must have updated their images recently; I was never impresed with the image quality but I checked it out again this week and the are that I hunt is now very clear and I can see some of the areas that have changed (clear cuts and whatnot) in the recent past. If you haven't been on there in a whil, it might be worth another look.

There is no real live satellite imagery, unless you want to pay Digital Globe or Space images a lot of money. That is presuming there is coverage where and when you need it. The best most of us can do is not more than 10 years old or so.

Most of the high resolution photos on Geosrver or Google Earth are taken from airplanes and aren't satellite images.

I have noticed that Mapquest has really stepped up its aerial photography. When you map a place, on the top right of the map that is shown, there is a button for aerial photo.

The navigation that you can do with the map is pretty cool also. Just left click, hold, and move the map where you want it.

Although it is not "up to the day" current, I think it can give a person a good layout of the land.

      It's go time, i pretty much have all my gear ready for end of March for NE. Our first hunt is archery only then I get to come home and get even with the pipe bomb. Good luck Wanderer once you get that first they just start to drop after that. Bow or shotgun they are a blast. Bisonguy, Scout scout scout. The more you know what the birds are doing and want to do will help. Being a better woodsman and knowing your land and what the birds are doing will put more birds in the dirt then great calling. Patience is another huge part of turkey hunting. I am 1st to want to start running and gunning and give up on a bird i've been working but over the years have got a lot better and just need to give some setups a chance before moving. Good luck be safe.

      Anyone have a chance to play with these yet? I'm thinking of getting one to add a second unit to my boat. I have a hook 5 already and it is decent for what I use it for. Also, if I stay with just the original hook series, anyone know if there is a way to make a copy of the lake chip?

      Cliff is right. If the upper jaw extends past the lower jaw or lip (aka an underbite), then it’s a whitefish. If the lower lip is even with or extends past the upper lip, then it’s a Cisco.  This according to the DNR website. Cisco’s also seem to have an irredescent hue to them vs. whitefish, which in Lake V have a slight brown/yellow hue to them. Hard to explain in words. Bleeding fish...plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it.  I gill them. Leaves your fillets pearly white and creates way less blood and slime during the fillet process. Many say the fillet tastes better too.

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.

      this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area? 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.
    • Wanderer
      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!
    • Rick
      I hear the panfish are kicking it up a bit? Any word out there?
