      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.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!

      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.

      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.

      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
