      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.

If you are looking for LAND to hunt as in private property- good luck. I've asked many, many land owners in the southern part of that county with NO luck at all. There are a few public WMA's in the area (hastings) and a number in western Scott County. None of them are really good as far as the duck hunting, and any lake/pond will likely be VERY crowded. Your best bet is to get as far from the cities as possible, and get on a lake that is hard to access (canoe access only). Less pressure= more birds. I hunted south of the cities a long ways-on hard to access small lakes, and it is still a zoo. I'm headed up north this weekend to get away from the crowds. Good luck!

If you do ever come up with anything- shoot me an email at jparrucci@yahoo.com. I have a 17ft canoe that is great for ponds/small lakes, and am always looking for another hunting partner in the area.

No, I would stay down by the metro area. I think there are more ducks down there.

Try pleasant lake in between jordan and new prague.

That is all I will tell you besides the woodies are thick as poop down there.

Good luck

I'd paddle or motor South of St Paul Park on the river, PENTIFUL little fingers off the river by Grey Cloud Island would offer a good set up.I have only hunted this area when every thing else is locked up!

      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.

      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...

      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!!!
