      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.

Hey, I heard you moved South! What are your plans with your place on the Island? We took Haatsie's pontoon out yesterday and it was pretty nice out. I just got back from the lake (noon) and it's calm out there with the lake looking like it's glassed over with ice. Pretty warm for Oct. 2nd. (upper 70's to lower 80's). Had a couple people stop in last night and they "spanked em" pretty good!! My neighbor let a 31.5 go a couple weeks ago. Take care and check in on us here at FM! cool.gif

cubed, sorry it took so long to respond. We took a drive down to the kees sunday and my truck broke down, It took four days to get a fuel pump. We sat on the beach drinking beer and fishing. Kee Largo is a good place to be stranded.

As for your question, I plan on keeping the cabin for a while. My brother and freinds are taking care of the place.

Yup, Key Largo is alright. I did some snorkling there many years ago in what I think was a State Park area? Wish I could go back in time and do that all over again and then stay there! Enjoy the weather as we are expecting some rain/snow on Wed. crazy.gif Later!

Islander, where are you living, near Orlando, Miami? I honeymooned at South shore resort, Captiva island. I would go back in a minute. Thinking when it comes time to retire or close to. Spend the winters(mid Nov.-Mar.)there, the rest here. Would like to check out hunting there or travel to Texas.

cubed, John Pennekamp state park is the place we camped while we were stranded, great diving and snorkeling on the corel reef and meny ship wrecks. We plan on going back for some more diveing.

Jim, we live in Sebring (about 100 miles south of Orlando). It's a small town, quiet part of the state, mostly farm land and lakes. I havn't been here long but I love it so far.

      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.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
