      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.

17' Lund Explorer with a 115 Yamaha 4 stroke. Ya know I fish the river and Lake Superior and all the local lakes. I also like LOW, Rainy Lake, Rainy River, Gunflint trail, Mil Lacs, Canada, Winni and Red. My boat isnt the biggest or fastest but it does well at all these places as long as Im not dumb and go out in or get caught in bad conditions.

I fished Island tonight and its WAY low. I could barely get the boat off the rolers at the dam landing. Did get 5 eyes, 2 pike and 2 perch. I think I missed a few crappies but didnt catch any.

I have an Alumacraft Navigator 175 with a 75 Hp Yammy 4-stroke. It spends a lot of time out on Vermillion and Birch Lake. Some on Mille Lacs and this summer it made its first trip to Canada to fish Lower Manitou. It is good to see the Alumacraft guys on here, especially another Navigator guy.

98 14ft Northwood w/98 15hp Evinrude. It's been on Birch, Bear Island, Beltrami, and a few lakes down here by Big Lake/Monticello. Just hung up playing town team baseball after 17 years so maybe I'll have enough time to use it more than 4 times a year and justify getting something bigger. smile.gif Would like to get something like an Alumacraft Navigator, Crestliner Fish Hawk, or Lund Rebel or Explorer someday. It's good to dream right confused.gif

Then there is ice..................

I sport an '98 Alumacraft Tourny Pro 175 tiller with a 75 Merc 2 stroke. Love the boat. Nice and wide, handles some of the rougher water on Superior pretty good. I fish mostly on Superior, St. Louis river and local lakes around Duluth. It also goes to Vermilion, Rainy River, Canada (Souix Lookout area) and Leech Lake area.

I'm on the water in a 2000 Lund 1700 ProSport with a 90 Honda.

Spend all my summer vacation time up on Kabetogama and Namakan, and also try to get in some local time on the river and Superior (never enough tho).

Will be out on sunday morning starting near the Lester, give a shout on 16 if anyone else is out in the area. I also spend quite a few days shore fishing chub lake with my 4 year old for anything that will bite a bobber and worm grin.gif

Hey Casey,

How was the Lower 'tou? I have only ice fished it in the past, but would love to try it in spring or fall for trout. Did you launch off the cedar narrows road, and how hard was that drive on the boat. We had some close calls with the logging trucks in winter wink.gif Did you stay at Camp Manitou or just do a day trip?

Ok, I have three things that keep me "floating with a purpose". If that makes me a Captain, then ST must be an Admiral....or perhaps a Commodore...

Yes, ST, you need a second job for those renewal tabs. I bet you have other toys too, such as a sled, or an ATV as well, or perhaps even a fish house. Yep, the DNR loves you.

Maybe you should lobby the state for a "fee" rebate of some kind, or maybe some sort of bulk buyer's permit....

Ok, I'm done.

      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... 
    • Jplante
      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.
    • Flash
      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.
    • Wanderer
      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.
