      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.

Any reports East of the Narrows

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anybody has been fishing the east end of the lake? We are coming up next week and usually camp down in that area. Not set on any area, just looking for reports. Thanks

HI N.P.S.,

I DON'T FISH THE EAST END THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, AS THE WEST END IS AWESOME RIGHT NOW. I TALKED TO A GUY ABOUT 15 MINUTES AGO, AND THEY HAMMERED THEM IN 17 FOOT OF WATER IN MILD CURRENT LOADED WITH BAIT FISH. ALOT OF FISH... 14" TO 20". I DON'T LIKE USING THE XTRA GAS WHEN THE FISHING IS GOOD ON THIS END.

SINCERELY,

FISHMIESTER

Where do you find current other than the narrows. Not looking for specific spots, just general ideas of what to look for. Is current important in fall fishing on Rainy. We always searched for reefs that were holding fish and worked them. Any tips on fishing Rainy after a front has moved through this time of year. Last couple fall trips we have experienced the worst of what this lake can offer. And fishing was about as good as the weather. But I still love to come this time of year. My wife thinks I'm crazy to keep going back this time of year.

Thanks, Doug

HI DOUG,

MY POINT EXACTLY, YOU SAID YOUR FISHING EAST OF THE BRULE, I SAY THE BEST FISHING EAST OF THE BRULE IS JULY & AUGUST. MAY, JUNE, SEPT, OCT & NOV. I CHOOSE THIS END. THERE ISN'T ALOT OF CURRENT ANYWHERE RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE WE LACK MOISTURE. PLACES WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF CURRENT, WATER NARROWS, RANIER, LIFT BRIDGES, AMERICAN NARROWS, AND THERE ARE MANY MANY MORE, LOOK FOR PLACES WELL YOU HAVE HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF SMELT & BAIT FISH & ACCESS TO DEEP WATER & YOU WILL FIND FISH, THEY WILL BE THERE PIGGING OUT & GETTING FAT AS FOOTBALLS.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      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.
