      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.

Sorry to hear that. That must not have been a very fun 1/2 mile walk. Hopefully the surgeon has some good news for you.

sorry to hear, that sucks. for bird hunting, you could post if you have a group of guys, or train your dog to stay at the end of the field and drive to the other end, then when he sees you get out, he can kick some birds up to you (if you do this, find me so I can get your dog's pups!)! If you were going to go deer hunting, make one of you buddies of family members help you carry your gun and such to your location of choice.

Sorry about the broken foot, it's a bad time of year for that to happen. I broke my right wrist in Mid Oct. many years ago but I was able to hunt anyhow. The foot is much more difficult to deal with. I'll take a broken arm over a leg any day. Later on maybe you can make some money runnin footballs!

Broke my leg when I was about 16 in september late. After I finally got socks to fit over cast I was back out at least posting on deer hunting opener. If I remember right I never went back to get it cut off , it pretty much rotted off. Maybe a different story now 20 years later. Good Luck.

Bad timing, hopefully you can limp out to a deer stand to at least say you tried...

If worse comes to worse,you could get a permit to shoot and hunt from your car.I pretty sure you can get this from the DNR and have the doctor fill it out and get it back to them.Only problem is time is getting short for the paperwork.Maybe e-mail it all back and forth.You could still deer hunt this way if walking is to hard.

are they putting you in a walking cast of any sort? I would try finding a ground blind and look at Arctic Shield Boot Covers. Put that over your cast foot and walk out if your terrain allowes. I saw a guy last night one leg deer hunting stands might be out of it for getting in and out but why not a ground blind?

I don't know if it's over yet. I got a Jones fracture college. I was on crutches for 4 weeks and then good to go. You may still get all of December. Good luck with the doctor and maybe things will work out for you.

gundy89,did they put a walking cast on it at all? i know i can make it out deer hunting i have a big box stand that the guys built steps to just tonite. but the walking to the duck blind i am sure is out as of right now. and the pheasant hunt is a no go but goose hunting on the week-ends should be ok as long as i have grunts. but the bad thing is i save all my vacation for the fall and am solo most of the time so that is out to

find a young person willing to help ya out if you take them with. You'd be shocked someone 25 and younger would do if you took them goose hunting or something like that. I know if I was invited to go with I'd help out a lot especially since I've never been able to go out before. Otherwise try finding a 4 wheeler to help with the gooses.

No, they stuck me in a regular cast and crutches. It sucked big time, but I was good to go after 4 weeks. I was playing football at the time and got hurt almost exactly 4 weeks from the start of camp. I think I only missed a couple days, but the first week or so I had to lay off of the contact. They could put you in the walking cast though. I think that the doc took a little bit more precaution with me and put me on the crutches to heal faster in time for the season.

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.

      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      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.
