      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.

Who hunted tonight?

Don't know if MN had similar conditions but the deer were out like no tomorrow tonight. They were everywhere, except for within bow range of my stand smirk.gif But I saw so many on the way home it was scary to drive. Interesting to see what the weather does.

If I was up north I would have been out.It always seems that the deer movement is good right before a weather system is moving in.

I guess I will just have to wait 2 more days and then go.

Nobody I talked to was planning on hunting tonight but I knew it'd be good. Saw 6 bucks but only one from my tree. The rest were peacefully eating in a field and I spotted them on my walk out. I've seen multiple bucks hanging out with one another lately...seems odd to me for this time of year.

I should have hunted last night. Instead, I went scouting for an AM duck/goose hunt. Saw more deer than you could shake a stick at last night while driving around. Found a field loaded with geese too, but no dice with the farmer, he has his own hunters... oh well, another time!

I should have hunted Monday morning. I thought about going out before work. I could have had about an hour of light before I had to pack up and go but this is about when 75 percent of deer movement occurs near one of my stands. I decided not to because I had a busy day ahead.

Sure enough, a monster doe got her picture taken half an hour into legal shooting time. As my father in law put it, she knew you weren't there that morning and thought she'd leave a pic for you to remember her by. : )

BTW, I was working from home that day so, I could have went back a few hours after the shot to retrieve her and field dress her.

Woulda coulda shoulda. Or as Dandy Don Meridith once said, if "ifs and buts were candy and nuts we'd all have a Merry Christmas." : )

I went bowhunting last night and was fortunate enough to take a dry doe.

She came through at 6:38 and was walking away from me when I shot. She was at a drastic angle when the arrow entered in front of the left rear quarter and exited out the back of her right front shoulder taking her lungs clean. After the shot she ran about ten yards back the direction she came from and stood looking back at where she was shot. Not being aware of what had happened and her being totally at ease she began to loose her legs, she took a couple of more steps and collapsed.

Silence is golden and she never knew what hit her.

      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!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!
