      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.

All right Fellas…time to play Whose Memory is Better Than Mine (this shouldn’t be tough since I can’t remember anything)

Last year at the Turkey & Deer Classic down at the Steele County fairgrounds in Owatanna, MN there was a tree stand company there, promoting their stand (obvi). It was a lounge style where the hunter actually faced the tree, but it was hinged so that the hunter had 360 degrees of view. You actually almost lay down in the thing. Looked comfortable, but I’m sure I would spend my time sleeping in it. For the life of me, I can’t remember what the name of the company was??? My buddy is thinking about purchasing one, and he called on me to help remember the name of the company, but I have been no help.

Not sure but sounds like you might be describing the Steath Saddle made by TrophyLine. If this sounds right I know Cabela's carries them.

Looked that up, and that's not it. With this system you climb the tree with the regular steps, but you only bring the bracket of the stand up with you. There is a pin that comes out of the bracket, and then turns upward 90 degrees. Once you get the bracket secured to the tree, you bring the "saddle" part up, and slide the saddle onto the pin going away from the tree. Darn, if I could only remember the name of that company.

Here is a list of everyone that was there maybe you can narrow it down from here and figure it out. Good luck


Thanks Hartner, I already went that route, and struck out. Infact on the online exhibitor map, (they were in the west wing) their spot was listed as "Food Plots". I will just have to dig thru my hunting literature and hopefully I picked up one of their brochures.

All right, I dug through my old literature from the show, and I did have a pamphlet from them. They call it the "Dream Hunter" Yeah, like I need any more encouragement to fall asleep in my stand.

Here is a picture of the stand. Not too sure I would feel safe in it though…

Side note: After I posted this I revisited their website and I clicked on "order" and this is posted:

Due to overwhelming demand we have temporarily suspended the processing of any new orders . For any questions please call us at (XXX) XXX-XXXX. Thank you for your understanding.

Funny, I would think that they would want to sell them...?

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      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!!!
