      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 kept 5 between 11-12 inches. The wind was blowing pretty good so I just drifted the lake and pickup a few every drift. Any where from 11 feet to 14 feet. The fish are usually scattered.Good luck and let me know how you did.

Well it was a b u t full day on the lake but that is all that I can say. We didn't have much luck 3 small crappies 2 sunnies 1 thern and had a few walleye bites. There were 7-10 other boats out 5 in the same area and we saw 3-4 crappies pulled in all morning. not alot of action!!! We left around noon.. used leeches, plastics, and minnows. all crappies caught on plastics, leeches got nibbled and bit off a few times and minnows not much action.... Jigged off the bottom used floats tried alot of presentations anywhere from 4-14 ft.

I was out there this evening and there was quit a crowd,craps seem to be hitting good from what I could see but I didn't have much luck as I stayed off to the side of the rest of the boats,one thing I would like to point out though is RESPECT as I didn't see a whole lot of it out,Guys arguing over fishing spots,boats pulling in on others tangling lines,now tell me is a few fish that important?let's have some courtesy for others as it's a time to enjoy ourselves!I'm new to the area and tonight was my first time on Ann.Is it like that alot out there?

I think it is like that in that area Knife/Ann/Fish. Typical selfish people who think that it is their fish and their lake. Nothing makes me as angry as those people. It goes both ways too. Some people don't want you within 100 yards of their boat and other people will work their way in to the middle of a group of boats.

On Saturday morning 5 boats cruised in and out of each other but everybody seemed friendly. We talked as other boats trolled by and they all gave pointers or updates as to what they caught or what they were fishing for.....but the fish were not biting hard either........I will leave that lake alone till winter then give it a shot again.........Good Luck and have fun!!!!

I shouldn't over generalize. But the few bad apples really make it so unpleasant.

Ive had people setup their fish house within 10 feet of where I was fishing. Dont let anyone see or know if you're catching fish on that lake.

Good luck in the winter I fished the lake many times and never did very well maybe we could get together and fish. I usually fish by myself because I work most weekends. Shoot me a email and I'll tell you the type of plastics I use. The time I was on the lake there where alot of boats and no problems with the boats Good luck everybody

      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?

      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.

      +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!

      I hear the panfish are kicking it up a bit? Any word out there?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      awesome feedback! thank you so much for the info! Ill get up ther next year, i dont want to keep any i just want to catch some nice eyes and northern.....hell, whatever! ive been in a sleeper 5 times on LOW and we only had one real good trip. upper red lake once in a sleeper caught 3 eyes in 3 days. i dont mind if i catch one or two fish, its all about the experience for me on the big water. but the girlfriend is a hard one to convince at times for a return trip if the fishing is slow. were headed to fairbault this weekend, i hope we get into something. thanks again guys! ill post a report on our trip. good luck on the ice!

      Well who else is going after long beards this spring? I was drawn for season B again no surprise. There were surplus tags left as there were last couple years.  Really like the new approach to not having to apply for the later seasons spreads the hunters out and gives guys like me the opportunity to get after them early   Been out doing some scouting and been seeing some big wintering flocks one I was glassing other day had over 60 birds in it! They have really been working over the picked corn lately.  Oh cant wait to hear the first gobble of the year

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff
