      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.

With the color of the tails and the bushy tails,I would like to guess they are silver fox.Problem is with that guess is that I dont believe silver fox get that big.Maybe a cross.

Or,a coyote with a light colored tail.

I definitely see a fox shape there, no doubt about that. Big though, but of course that's a little hard to judge in a picture without a ton of reference points too...

Some of the farmed fox are Blue,Blue frost silver and the red ones are saga gold and golden island or just wild red fox.

A silver is two toned with shades od black and grey.If it were a farm raised fox it could have been cross breed with any color phase.

Generally speaking,a farmed raised fox is larger than a wild one.

Those are silver fox- we have seen 2 in all the years where we hunt. Very rare- one my uncle shot and hit but it got down its hole and another that we found splatted to the road. My dad and uncle have hunted fox and coyotes since they were kids and so have i so we see alot, but never a silver one. My uncle knows a guy who raises those. Dont know if there are any fox farms down there, but if there isnt thats pretty cool. Siver fox are usually look black or pretty black and looking at the picture thats what you got, as they are probly still in there summer fur, but if you get another picture later i'd guess they would be darker. To me they dont look that big, when they have good fur they are twice if not bigger looking. Skin one and you would understand. They look well furred and healthy. I thought at first it might be just the camera light but thats doubtful being their tails are white and you got good color in the field. If you get a crack at one of those i'd for sure take one. So they are definetly silver fox- they could be wild, but they could be excapee's too. Or maybe mommie just had a litter of those.

I showed this pic to an old rach farmer this morning.He said indeed it was a ranch fox but it's not a silver it's an artic they turn pure white in the winter.

He asked where i took the pic.I said off of my corn ladder stand.What the hells that.An over grown step ladder to scout for artic fox i said.He just chuckled and said by the looks of the picture thats momma and whats left of her little ones.Be kinda kewl to see some half red/white fox running around.

He figures 1 of the storms probly is the reason why there running around.I guess several other animals got out as well

He did'nt think they would survive unless they been running around all summer

Good luck fox hunters better get hunting before it snows.I gave up the sport i just might need to get a small game lic and try to wack 1 with a bow

Here is a pic of a Arctic fox in summer plummage i took a couple months ago. [image]Picture001.jpg[/image]

I'm not saying the fox in your picture aren't arctic fox, but they do look a little big. I work in the oil fields of AK and see arctic fox daily, they are smaller than the red fox, and they appear to be built lower to the ground, the large fox in the picture has pretty long legs which is what throws me off. The point was brought up that if the fox were farm raised they would be bigger which i suppose could be the case, or they may be a hybrid, who knows.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      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.

      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.
