      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.

Ikeslayer,

Mac's may be closed to parking, but is the water closed to fishing???

I fished from the green bridge up to the plunge pool on Sunday. I tossed jigs and plastics for smallmouth and sauger, and husky jerks and smithwicks for exox, and didn't even get a bite. I've fished this stretch since I was a kid with my Grandfather in the 60's, and I'd like to think I know it well enough to find the fish. Yesterdays water was low and clear, but something is up with that stretch ~ it's really changed in the last 5-years (about the time the zebras were introduced). I find some fish in the summer months, but not like it used to be. No more 50 fish outings on the tail waters. I miss it.

Anyone have a theory?

yeah i know that you can't get into macs anymore and that is a shame however there are some alternate routes of getting down there and i was wondering if anyone had been down there lately. i am looking to do a blast and cast trip where the rod is in hand and the gun is accross the lap for ducks and geese. Wondering if anyone has had any luck in the area. Goody it sounds like that was rough. I don't know what i would have done differently. best wishes to all and let me know if you have any hints. ike

Ikeslayer,

Spoke to a man last night that knows the zumbro better then the back of his hand, and he still has great outings on that stretch of water from Macs on down ~ as recent as last week. Could have been the cold front or the pace I was working upstream to cover the miles. Probably a combination of the two. Go for it, work the deeper water slowly, and best of luck. Post a report if you are inclined.

      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!
