      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.

stupid me had to go and promise to take three guys pheasant hunting on saturday; now i want to back out on them or at least make them wait...too many ducks and geese flying around to even make me notice a pheasant. oh well it should be a quick hunt for roosters anyways saturday; maybe i can sneak out early; setup for my field hunt; leave the blind @ 8:55; shoot my roosters @ 9:02; get back to the blind by 9:08; and hopefully not miss a flock of ducks or geese!

well its official. after hunting this morning with my buddy on his slough i am making the neccessary phone calls to tell the pheasant hunting buddies to sleep in or hunt without a dog and me cuz its goose hammering tomorrow morning for sure. we just locked up two cornfields that are going to be black dirt come tuesday and they almost appear black in the mornings right now due to the huge numbers of geese and mallards working the fields. hopefully i can get some pictures posted tonight for you guys to see.

Pheasant opener was good. Wow, there sure were alot of hunters out. The best part of the day were the deer brats on the grill at noon. Umm, that hit the spot.

Coming up in a couple weekends to try and get some birds to fly... A friend has land outside of Montevideo, did the "not many birds" trend apply there too on opener? I hope not, cuz it'd be fun to get some roosters to fly!

The second weekend was much nicer than the first. There were fewer hunters. It must have been that West Nile thing or something or that when the birds got up in the wind it was like shooting at a rocket. I cooked up some out standing lunches. ( deer brats, pheasant strips, deer chislic (sp)) All wrapped in a tortilla. It was a tortilla theme this weekend. I did the strips and chislic in peanut oil. I told the Mrs. we gotta start eating healthier. I topped everything with melted cheese and a little ranch dressing. Ummm that was good. I shoot better after a good lunch. I carry all my cooking stuff in the old perchmobile. She's taken on the firetiger look the past couple of years with a mixture of red, white, streaks of rust, brown, and green. I bet if we get a good smooth clear freeze on the lake this year she might attract fish just by being parked on the ice. I'm taking ideas for next weekend's menu.

Let me know when you would like a meal and I'll see what I can work out. The mrs. has kept you on a short leash lately. I haven't heard much from you. Load the family up and come on over and I'll cook. The ice season is getting closer. So far, I think I'll only be able to get one big trip in this winter. The mrs. has a short leash on me too.

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
