      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.

Hello, Im from Michigan. A group of 4 of us are coming to LaCrescent to hunt. Never been there. Just wondering If the trip will be a good time or not? Meaning do you think we will see alot of deer? Thanks for the input...

Can't help you out with the number of deer you will see, but isn't every hunt a good hunt? Especially those spent with friends and family?

Blap, welcom to MN deer hunting! I am from Hokah, a small town just west of La Crescent. I have been hunting now for 12 years in that area and I love it. If the weather cooperates by giving us cool temps and cloud cover, you should have a very enjoyable hunt. I can't guarentee that everyone in your group will bag a B & C buck, but you should see some deer and hopefully some nice ones.

Write a post after the season to let us know how you did.

Where are you hunting? Just out of curiosity.

Good luck!

Blap ,

Start getting your cardio in shape. You will be humping some large hills. I've hunted the area for 20 yrs. It wears me out every year.

Good luck.

Mike

Thanks for the info, that will help alot( I guess I better start running to get in shape) We are not sure where we are hunting. State land somewhere. We are getting there thursday to scout a little and try to find a spot. Any suggestions would be great

Thanks Brian

Your basic good hunting spots will apply here (trail crossings, funnels, benches, saddles, etc...). Try figure out where feeding and bedding areas are and set up in between.

Hint: Sidehill trails about 50 yds. below the peek of the ridge, near the point of the ridge. Sit all day.

Oh, forgot about the hills, I am from the area so it is normal to me, but out-of-towners always mention the hills. Yeah, be ready for steep bluff terrain, thick cover, and shots 100 yds or under.

Any specific area of state or federal land would be greatly appreciated right around La Crescent. From what I see there is alot around there. Is it good just south of La Crescent about two miles?

Honestly, any land in that area will be good. Since you will be hunting public or state land, you will just need to get out early to beat the rush (there will be lots of hunters out)

As for speciffic pieces of state/public land, I can't reccomend any. I am blessed to have a nice big piece of private land down there.

Sorry I can't be of more help in that dept.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      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!
