      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.

Fire Gardy!

Not going to happen. Nice to see he'll be around. Not like he was going anywhere.

Cut & Paste from the Star Trib

Twins GM working on next year's team.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has signed a contract extension that will allow him to run the club through the 2009 season.

In addition, the entire Twins coaching staff has been signed through the 2008 season.

"I thought we had a tremendous year," Twins General Manager Terry Ryan said. "We've had a number of good years. This staff is experienced and they have a work ethic and they have the same philosophies. I know Gardy delegates a lot of responsibility to them."

Gardenhire will head into his sixth seasons as Twins manager with a career record of 455-354. Only the Yankees' Joe Torre, the Cardinals' Tony LaRussa and the Braves' Bobby Cox have won more games among active managers.

The Twins were 25-33 when Gardenhire made changes that helped the club finish with 96 wins and a fourth American League Central title under his watch. He changed the left side of the infield and had a heart-to-hear conversation with first baseman Justin Morneau. The new infielders, third baseman Nick Punto and shortstop Jason Bartlett, played well. Morneau became a Most Valuable Player candidate. And the Twins caught the Detroit Tigers on the final day of the regular season to win the division.

But the Twins lost to Oakland in the AL Division Series, something that still bothers Gardenhire.

"I'm excited that we are here a few more years to try to get to the ultimate place, the World Series," Gardenhire said.

Pitching coach Rick Anderson, bench coach Steve Liddle, bullpen coach Rick Stelmaszek, third base coach Scott Ullger, hitting coach Joe Vavra and first base coach Jerry White all agreed to contracts which will run through the 2008 season.

Gardenhire, 48, was named manager of the Twins on January 4, 2002.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.

      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.

      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      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.
