      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.

Just a huge thanks to Cheffrey and Grand Superior Lodge for a fantastic spread tonight! Man Im still stuffed!

When we got home the wife and I took the dog for a walk to try and get circlulation back in our legs. I think my belt shrunk 4 notches at the table and I had a hard time feeling my toes. wink.gif

When we got home my wife crashed and Im not far behind.

Anyone looking for a good wild game feed should keep Cheffrey and his crew in mind. Oh and the South Shore Brew wasnt bad either. grin.gif Thanks to Badger for a nice variety of drink.

Frank and Lota is was nice to see you and your better halfs. I hope you guys all had a safe drive home. Those deer were crazy on the way home. shocked.gif

Who knows maybe you guys will be famous in the Big City. I think that camera man really liked you guys. cool.gif

Northlander, nice to see you again and nicer to see your lovely wife. Ha!

Cheffery and crew put on one heck of a spread. Last year my wifes favorite was the ravioli rabbit in a cream sauce. This year she loved the rabbit in a red suave.

After those dishes I might have to let Jr go jihad on the Cottontails on our garden. My favorite was the grouse & portabella mushrooms. Amongst that was Bore-kabobs, Antelope & curry sauce, bison salad w/blue cheese dressing, Rattlesnake casadias, Pheasant, Venison Swirls, and on, and on, and on.

On the way home we almost had venison on the grill a couple times.

It sounds like I missed a good time also. I'm finally done with my two weeks of schooling at work and I was able to get the rest of deer camp in order with the help of LoonASea and my Dad on Saturday.

I spent the last two hours putting things away in the garage for the season and I'm giving some serious thought to heading down to the French and float a couple of crawlers for a few hours.

I'll do my best to make the next game feed when it comes around next time. I think Cheffrey should practice a little more of his talent at our first ice fishing outing for the season. Sound like a good plan to anyone else??

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

      There is a bunch of walleyes in Mille lacs and for the first time in a long time there is  bait fish for them to eat. Mille lacs is a son of a gun to fish if there is a bunch of bait for walleyes to eat. It’s still one the best walleye fisheries in the world.

      Wait until open water season.  It was ranked #1 in the country for bass for a reason.  Its also ranked #6 in the nation for muskies too if you have enough patience to target them. A recent review of Mille Lacs was conducted by an independent Biologist from Lake Erie and found that what the DNR has done with that lake has been fair, accurate, and appropriate in terms of regulation/harvest/restrictions.  Course, some business owners might say otherwise but the science and data has been found to be true.

      I did not draw an early season permit.  I may be able to snag a surplus season B, otherwise it will be a later season for me this spring.  The birds are getting SMART.  They have refused to listen to any calls and they are decoy shy so I haven't been using calls or decoys for a while now.  Rather, I just sit there and wait on a travel route and hope they walk within range (sort of like deer hunting I guess).  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.  Scouting is obviously important.  What has also really helped is the use of Winchester Longbeard XR ammo.  I have harvested turkeys out to 60 yards with it in recent years.

      Found out we will have up to 17 guns up for grabs. Plus all the of other prizes. That does not include the 3 guns in the 3 gun raffle. The 3 gun raffle tickets must be purchased before the banquet, so let me know if you need some they are 5 bucks each.

      I will be at it with archery gear. It took some time to get the first one with the crossbow but the last two years I stuck a turkey. Watch for the turkey contest here as it is fun times. I can’t wait to see all the photos of turkeys soon.

      I wonder if you would still need both on you if you have the lifetime licence

      It's go time, i pretty much have all my gear ready for end of March for NE. Our first hunt is archery only then I get to come home and get even with the pipe bomb. Good luck Wanderer once you get that first they just start to drop after that. Bow or shotgun they are a blast. Bisonguy, Scout scout scout. The more you know what the birds are doing and want to do will help. Being a better woodsman and knowing your land and what the birds are doing will put more birds in the dirt then great calling. Patience is another huge part of turkey hunting. I am 1st to want to start running and gunning and give up on a bird i've been working but over the years have got a lot better and just need to give some setups a chance before moving. Good luck be safe.

      Anyone have a chance to play with these yet? I'm thinking of getting one to add a second unit to my boat. I have a hook 5 already and it is decent for what I use it for. Also, if I stay with just the original hook series, anyone know if there is a way to make a copy of the lake chip?

      Cliff is right. If the upper jaw extends past the lower jaw or lip (aka an underbite), then it’s a whitefish. If the lower lip is even with or extends past the upper lip, then it’s a Cisco.  This according to the DNR website. Cisco’s also seem to have an irredescent hue to them vs. whitefish, which in Lake V have a slight brown/yellow hue to them. Hard to explain in words. Bleeding fish...plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it.  I gill them. Leaves your fillets pearly white and creates way less blood and slime during the fillet process. Many say the fillet tastes better too.

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.
