      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.

3 trips this past week and great fishing each time out... Yeehaw!! After the 4 days of wind shut down the lake bite I had mixed results in the river week before last, good 1 day slow the next time. This week it all came together and the bite was red hot 3 days in a row. Lot's of great reports coming from up and down the river from friends as well.

Get out there while the gettin is good!

Hmmm, and your excellent results on Wednesday are on account of me being at the tiller then I take it!!! I can turn anyones boat into a lucky boat ya know!!! Like I told you Thursday in that Tyee of Jim's your best bet at getting better at your jiggin skills would be to just sit back for an hour or 2, eat some sandwiches, and dillegently watch me.....Anyone can catch an 8 pounder, the real skillfull jiggers shine at getting the 4 inchers too!!!

Got your gameface on Keith? 10 am we're out of here to go jostle with the weekend terrorists....I mean tourists! Gosh I love fishing during midweek, but sometimes ya just gotts fish the weekend days too when the weather is so darn nice eh!

After searching high and low at all the Roseau and Warroad shops for that particular jig yesterday I sure hope I can find 'em in Baudette. If not I do have a few in 3/16ths oz and they'll probably work today as the wind speed/direction looks to be perfect for the slow slipdrift down that break. After I nail a few I may be conned into selling you one....Starting bid 5 beans to you my friend!!!

Here's hoping you nail another whale!!!

Hmmm, end of the 90's I may have been the only guy out there pulling those big Reef Runners for a summer or 2. They were quite the weapon for awhile. Brought a bunch back from MI after seeing the magic they can work on Saginaw bay, and it was a couple of years before these shops up here caught wind.

Back in the early FM days we used to be a bit more blabby with such things as lure choice and general locations. Last winter I learned my lesson well when the spot Jim and I had the rentals setup on was spot specific posted for all to see on the WWW by someone who was privied to the location by a well meaning friend. As the bite was tough last winter for most, once our location was divulged for all to see, a group of 8 to 10 perm huts became a swarm of 50 within a week! Even worse was one day I did the early morning bite and moved out deep to another hut for the day bite. Upon returning some yangs had swiss cheesed 58 holes in rows between our grey house and our green house which were 50 feet apart, yes I counted them. This flooded out our entire setup forcing us to move, and that 12 x 24 sleeper is a pain to move!!! Worked out well in the end as we found fish to sit them on and that spot was where I pulled that 30 incher at 1am.

As to crankin in the fall....I won't waste my time doing it once the water is under 48 degrees if I have a choice. And I just plain like to jig ya know!

Another good day yesterday on the river...Launched around 130 or so, ran upstream a bit and dropped the electric on a little stair step 2 foot break about 40 yards long. Took about 2 minutes for me to get the first keeper in the boat, so it was a slower start than the last couple of trips! The 3 of us landed perhaps 60 or 70 fish total including a 25, 26, and 29 incher. Now the weather is going south so I'll be stircrazy till it shapes upenough for more jiggin!!!

I had that 'Dangerous magic' fellow in the kicker boat yesterday......School was in session!!!

I tried calling old TC via cell phone and could'nt get him.

Ya know what I heard Todd, Wigwam spring tourney is gonna be a fifty boat deal this year.

Gots to run over to Steven real quick to drop of my buds black Lab F, my choco lab 'Bobber' has been a happy fellow the last few days!!!

Regrds.....Norm

Not sure what is going to happen with the Spring Classic next year. Kevin is throwing a bunch of ideas around such as limiting the fishable water to both gaps and the river like they used to do. If that's the case, Kurt and I won't be coming back. I like the west end of the lake just as much as you do. I was just razzing you a little about the crankbaits. Keep the fishing reports rolling. We enjoy reading them.

      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!
