      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has 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. Initially 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 see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then 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.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Wigwam Fall Classic results

Recommended Posts

curt quesnell

Nice enough weather for the Fall Classic this year.

Al Thompson and Brock Dahl win again after a victory in

the spring classic they were back north jigging rock piles

for a final weight of 37.68 pounds....huge! They win four

thousand dollars for first place money and an extra grand

from LUND (I think) for the best finish in the spring and

fall classic events combined. 1 plus 1 easy to figure.

2. Mark Sindelair and Lorne Jonassen of Baudette. 28.64

3. Kevin Marchuk and Rick Amundson of Baudette. 25.15

4. Harv Lueck and Kent Christianson of Baudette. 22.36

5. Todd Prickett and Kurt Kainz of TRF 21.70

6. Dave Baker and Kick Pearson of Baudette 20.86

7. Brian Ney and Jim Ney Jr of Baudette 20.75

8. Carl Morman and Carl Thompson of Illinois 20.61

9. Tom Briggs and Scott Olmstead of Baudette 20.50

10.Jason Gibbins and Oliver Gibbins of Morson 20.41

Team Good Guys Mike Lindholm and Curt Quesnell were 28th

with 16.3 pounds

57 teams entered, 44 teams caught limits the first day

and the second day 38 teams limited. Remember there is

a 15 inch minimum length on the small end. 16 inch fish

are very plentiful and there are lots of 17s, some 18s,

and a few of those valuable fish just over 19 inches.

Nice job done by the Wigwam, Kevin Olmstead and his

tournament crew. Very fun, very frustrating and like

every year I made a couple of new friends. Still need

many more teams to enter and put this over the top.

Hey Scarface, didnt I see your Skeeter out there both

Good job … you guys finished in the top half, that’s an accomplishment looking at the field of competitors. Nope that wasn’t my Skeeter you saw, mine sat on the trailer all weekend, spent my time chasing grouse, hunting deer, and shingling a roof. Next year I plan to enter.

      drove by the chain yesterday about 3;30 ish. sure was quiet out there. i didn't see a soul on horsehoe, a few on becker, and a couple on cedar island in the bay just south of the road access.

      My neighbor at my cabin recently bought several acres adjoining his property and another neighbor had posted part of it-thinking he owned it.  My neighbor was planning on having it surveyed, so for the heck of it, I downloaded the trial OnX hunt map.  Only one pin on my property is visible in the winter, it was right on the pin.  We went and checked his property lines out and the neighbor that posted it, didn't own as much property as he thought he did. The OnX map property lines were fairly close to the actual lines, which were verified when surveyed.  If there are indeed pins or some kind of stakes in the ground, this should get you close enough to use a metal detector.

      None of the GPS mapping or GIS can be used as legal documents.  The best thing would’ve been to spend the $350 or so for Title Insurance when the land was purchased.  With the insurance the lines are checked and any discrepancies are corrected. After that, yup, it’s up to getting a new survey. best of luck to ya.

      Pretty nice weather and travel conditions right now.  The ice will be around for a while.  Fishing was slow for us today.

      Spring is here, open water soon. In Feb. Navionics did a big High Def. update to many lakes. Several  lakes i looked at appeared to have great contour improvements. Two lakes Coon in Anoka and Ottertail in Ottertail co., which i am very famuliar with, were part of the group. I decided to compare the 2 lakes to Iakemaster so I spent the $30 for the 2 maps for Humminbird Fishsmart App. I also obtained a Garmin LakeVU of a portion of Coon. Navionics & Lakemaster very close to each other, Garmin LakeVU not so close. The screen shot has Navionics on left, Lakemaster cennter & Garmin right.  Boating App owners - great time to do the Update all.

      The GPS ideas are great. Garmin Huntview for Minnesota is $79.99 and OnX has 7 day free trial. The plan is to have the property surveyed. I believe Cliff makes a good point, do it right from the start. More time for fishing less time messing around looking for markers and  buying equipment just to possibly end up having the survey done in the end. Thank you for your responses they have been very helpful!

      good luck there!!!!

      I decided to skip Mille Lacs today. With the poor fishing reports and even poorer travel options out there, I’m hoping next week might be better. So bring on the sun for the next 7 days!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Got out to west rush early this morning. No slush issues while I was there, but that could be different by days end. The landing was quickly degrading in just the few hours I was there...landing on east lake is worse. Only caught 5 crappies. Schools were scattered and on the move, and fish weren’t very active. Ice was about 32 inches, which made hole hopping very difficult with an ion auger. Caught a nice sun burn on my face

      Pike good luck!  Grew up fishing down there as a kid. Every so often I go back down there to relive some good memories  When I was 12 yrs old I use to fish down there with a couple old boys at midnight on opening night. Those old boys treated me as there own Kid!  And  I always thanked them for that  they taught me a lot. Caught a pretty good amount of eyes throwing jointed rapalas back then.  Its been a few years since then the old boys are gone fishing in the big sky above. But boy I still see there faces and smiles in my memory when every I stop down there
