      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.

Road kill

Recommended Posts

Ron Burgundy

What are the rules for road kills. On my way to work this morining I saw a large buck laying in the ditch. Big 8. Tines 10 inches or more. 18 inch spread. These are estimates as I was going about 70. I just started thinking about what You can legally do with the deer. Maybe go back home, get the truck and call the hwy patrol and the DNR. That would be a nice rack to have. I wouldn't mount it and tell people that I shot it or anything like that. From what I could see, it was very nice deer. If I had shot it I'd probably put it on my wall. Now I'm really disappointed to be typing this and not parking that deer in my garage and getting to work late!

i dont know the legalities on taking just the antlers, but laswt year i had one that was hit right in front of my driveway, called the DNR and they issued me a permit that i just had to come pick up the next day. Really funny and cool conversation piece that i left on the fridge. It says Deer Roadkill Possession Permit right across the top.

You can get a possesion tag for them I think it is a $1.00 and they will meet you and issue you the possession/transportation tag

Where I live the CO or deputy will issue a possession permit and it's a freebie.

If that big boy is there when I go home tonight he's coming home with me. Who knows. Maybe he was shot this morning and not tagged yet. Too close to city limits to be an archery deer, and on that side of the road.

i have never hit one but I call the sheriff if I see a fresh one and have probably claimed 15 or so in my life.

sometimes there is lots of good meat and sometimes it is a waste of time.

I got burnt once and must have claimed a deer WAY older than the freshly dented car with it's flashers going would have suggested. They do turn green at some point....

You can call the sheriff or police department and get your name on a list to come get them as well. you can bank on a call on saturday night at 1:30 am.....

Make sure to call the local authorities, the animal and ALL its parts are state property, antlers included. Usually the co will let you have them but I have seen differently with moose for a few understandable reasons. It is the CO's discretion.

The deer was gone when I got there after work of course. On my way to the Dover exit to go back home I found another deer in between the four lanes of I-90 with the rack cut off. This morning just past that deer I saw a big basket six on the edge of a cornfield looking for a date.

if you stop and pick up a dead deer with out calling the local police or sherriff it is considered poaching dont do it without calling stopped last year to pick up a hit deer and take it to a place that has caged lions where the police take them and sherriff pulled up and told us we were poaching because we didnt make the proper calls he let us go because we were at the lion place but man close call so a word of advice dont do it

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .

      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      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,
