      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.

I've tried it and had success with deer hitting it. I've also used BLB's mix posted on this site and had just as good if not better luck with it and it is by far cheaper.

It's only illegal if it contains a food product. I looked at BLB's ingredients and it's perfectly legal. I couldn't find the ingredient list for deer co-cain so I can't say one way of the other. I can say that the molasses-based stuff that's out there would be considered baiting. Rule of thumb - if it's a scent or mineral, it's legal. Adding corn syrup or molasses to your favorite mineral mix would be baiting. If it contains a food base (e.g., molasses, corn), it's illegal. For example, Gander is currently selling a $20 cake that's corn-based. While it looks like a mineral block, it's illegal. Remember, just because they sell it doesn't mean it's legal to hunt over.

I hope that helps.

Buy yourself some good old Morten salt with Iodine and a bottle of Evian or tap water. Head out to the place you see some buck signs and work the salt into the ground. Then water the ground so the salt will leech into it farther.

If you want to see a buck with its head in the ground, this is a proven method. It is also legal and cheap on the wallet. Oh, and make sure the ground is dirt that you are applying salt to and not rocky. It will be easier for the deer to dig a hole.

I put out some deer caine about a month ago. The deer haven't paid much attention to it in one spot. The squirrels seem to like it a lot. I will check another spot tonight. Perhaps there it is all gone and a huge 12 pointer is down on his knees licking up the dirt.....

I have had great luck with it this year... but next year I am going with the 'home brew' mix.

Good Luck!

Gissert

1 part standard loose stock (white) salt

2 parts red loose cattle mineral

1 part di-calcium phosphate

I buy the stuff at Fleet Farm in 50 pound bags. Dig a hole about 6-10 inches deep, and about three feet across. Mix the materials well. I like to dump each bag in a corner of my Otter trailer, and then pull them all to the center to mix them. Dump the whole works into the hole, and mix some of the dirt from the hole back into the mix. Refresh every six months or so.

It is getting a little late in the season for them to be effective. The deer crave them more in the spring and summer. In may, June, and July, I got tons of pictures of deer digging in the minerals. Once the velvet comes off, buck use drops dramatically. They still give it a sniff, but are more interested in the clover right now.

The great thing about these licks is they give deer the mineral they need and crave once it starts warming up in the spring.

Oh yeah,not to be a wisenhimmer or anything but here goes,I believe the product is called "deer caine"not deer cocaine although deer on cocaine would probably be almost impossible to stick as they would'nt stand in one place to long.c63

      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?
    • BrianF
      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.
