      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.

(Wade I cleaned up your post a bit to be more user friendly sort to say. E-mail me with any questions. Northlander)

I think first measurable ice on fish lake would be more interesting. I also think the prize should be non-alcohol related so our under 21 FMers can jump in.

just a suggestion.

(I agree Quick. Northlander)

Ok, no problem. But I preffer snow on the ground before ice gets made...then a period of no snow with good cold weather to make good clear ice.

How about a six pack of "beverage of winners choice"

I hope we have a little of the white stuff on the ground for rifle opener. I will be optimistic and say Nov. 1, but then we don't need any until we get that good blue ice going so I can start chasing lakers and crappies. Also can't have freeze up be too early though so I can still duck hunt in Nov. I'm a hard guy to please!

work for the weather in DSM iowa,,,--- you will get snow and measureable at that--- maybe a inch or two-- as even Iowa will get some frozen mix come thurs. The ground is still warm-- but with temps in the 20's,, it will gather on grassy areas etc. Thurs-Fri it may not climb above 32F as far south as Hinkley-Brainerd- line.

Could change--- but right now this air mass is looking pretty cold mid-OCT.

I still doubt what we get around here will be "Measurable". I think the ground is still too warm to let what we get sit around too long.

Heck I still have to mow my grass 1 last time. mad.gif

Yeah, I do too, just to mulch the leaves. I don't rake. The way I figure it, if God didn't want 'em on the ground, he wouldn't have put them there.

I still say we only get 1-2" and none of it will stay long at all. It will be too wet. Now Ashland and south could get hammered.

      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!
    • Rick
      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

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.
