      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.

Well I might have to hang it up for my rifle. Tok out my 10 yr old son last night in hopes of showing him some big fish and a good time.

Started out at Liberty at 6:30 and trolled up to Lakeside. One nice 18" in the box in the first 10 minutes and thought it was going to be a great nite. Continued to troll lakeside and a little north with no more bites for two hours. Went to Hunters Point and trolled for another hour or so with no bites. Moved on to Big Point and landed nice 26 3/4" and that was it. Hung it up at 11:15 We were trolling from 5' out to 11'

Thats fishing. frown.gif

hey skeetman,

at least you got one for breakfast, if it made it that long...haha. you also got one thats 3/4" bigger than the biggest i got this year so far.

i am whimping out again today... :-( the weather is perfect, the boat is ready, but im not feeling energized enough to do the trip by myself. its a long day driving to mille lacs from st paul, fishing 8 hours or more, then driving home again and hopefully cleaning fish. guess the stars havent aligned...im not giving up on open water yet!

thanks for your report. times like those with your son have got to be priceless. ill bet it was a great trip!

regards,

minnesotatuff

Hey Minnesotatuff, I understand the long drive and all that. When I woke up Friday morning the old body felt pretty tired at work. Thursday nite was the fastest I ever cleaned a walleye I know that. My warm bed was waiting for me!!

It was a great trip spending time with my son. I remember times like those the most with my dad freezing in the boat or duck blind. I'm still keeping hope that the weather will break and we will see an Indian summer day but the way they are talking I don't see it soon.

Still keeping hope and getting blaze orange ready too. smile.gif

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff

      Anoka county union says it is opening in the sports authority building in Coon Rapids. Cant Wait!

      I've found it interesting that the past couple years we haven't seen quite the numbers of rustys on our beach in the summer.

      There were a lot of cabbage beds on the North side of Pine Is. and on the far East end of Big Bay. Gone now! Cliff

      I never guarantee safety. Others in similar position are out on Shields. I would assume German is the same. I would do it just not telling you to do it.

      I have a skid house on Mille Lacs, the yellow perch has is no joke, camera all day long perfect sized perch for them to eat. The walleye numbers are strong, regardless what dnr says. The tough bite this year does kind of stink, but it's good for the lake. Every fish you catch is nice and healthy, and as previously stated usually big. We have been fortunate enough to get a couple slot fish (unicorns) out this year

      Just out of curiosity where were the cabbage beds on the east end? Rustys have been infested ever since we started fishing the east side

      shiners or suckers

      The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.
