      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.

Air Lucky

Recommended Posts

On a complete impulse buy, I picked up an Air Lucky Spinning wing decoy today at FF. The price seemed reasonable, has anyone had success with these? I know you need wind to work them, but with the current restrictions and probably future restrictions on motorized ones along with the price of the this one, I though what the heck.

I have used them with some success. If you have the wind, they look just like a motorized one. The one thing I don't like about mine is that it is kind of loud.

my friend has a air lucky and it works good if its really windy but its got to be really windy. My dad bought a winduck and it does not have a 3d body but its like a siloet sp? and it has very good bearings and needs much less wind to spin the wings then the air lucky one.

It will work best in ideal conditions 15-20 mph but I was always adjusting it out in the marsh, they tend to run sidways so I attached it permanently to the rod it comes with.

This way I could face it directly into the wind without it running to the side on me, some dry lube on the wing rods helps

We used them last year with good luck and also the Lucky Duck (motor driven) when it wasn't windy. One key to the Air Lucky is to have the pole straight up and then it won't run sideways but act like a weather vane. I put white tape on the underside of the wing to cover up the metal. You can use a conduit to mount the stake over deeper water. We had a hen mallard almost land on top of it, got up and flew, circled back and almost landed on it again.

I agree with the Winduck vote. You can blow on the wings to get them to spin that's how little breeze they take. And they are virtually silent when spinning.

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!
