      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 find the bars in Lacrosse, it's pretty self explanatory from there. Johns is a good time, but packed. Good scenery. Bodega has an awesome spread of beers and live music, but kinda granola. Del's has awesome bloody mary's. The Helm is a cool bar; get upstairs. The Library/Brothers are typical frat bars. Coconut Joes is a dance club. All this and more (20+ bars) in about a 4 block area. Cross the bridge on Clinton and turn south (right) 53. After about 15 blocks it splits into 2 oneways, stay right. You are now on 3rd. Look for a parking ramp a couple of blocks up on your right. Follow the people. Johns is the first bar south of the parking ramp.

I'm sorry could you be more specific with directions? You're awfully vague. smile.gif Sounds like this isn't your first rodeo?

Oh, I may have downed a beer or twenty while I lived there. GrandDad Bluff, The coulee's in the fall, the river in summer, Oktoberfest; One of the best years of my life. I'd love to get back there, but it's tough to find a good paying job.

I will second the Bodega, definately granola, but awesome beer selection, better than anything I have found up here. Basically drive through the neighborhoods, there is usually a number of neighborhood watering holes every 2 blocks. Sloop John B's or Sloops (help me here McGurk) is close to french Island, on4th street. The main streets downtown are 3rd and 4th street. Buzzard Billy's downtown is a pretty good dinner, but not much for nightlife. THere is a bar upstairs. If you are looking for the best Fish Fry (in my opinion) drive south of LaCrosse to Stoddard, and go to Rocky's supper club. Hands down the best fish fry I have ever had.

Good luck.....Just remeber, WI doesn't mess around when it comes to DWI and out of state drivers

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      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!
