      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.

I am going absolutely insane here in my cube in Dtwn Minneapolis. I have been working on my lists all day, haven't shaved in two weeks, and have been constantly reading these forums just to keep from totally losing it.

I'm not leaving until tomorrow after work, so there's probably some more I could add to my list. Ooooooh, a little sack of flour to check the wind direction in the stand...check! grin.gif

I'm leaving in 3 hours 55 minutes and 13 seconds, roughly!!! I have Purchase Orders to get out today, some production reports to finish up, but somehow can't seem to keep my mind on the task at hand. Did any of you watch South Park on Comedy Central last night? Cartman couldn't wait until the new Nintendo came out so he froze himself in the snow in the mountains and had his buddy "butters" wake him up in three weeks because the wait was actually killing him. I'm thinking about doing the same. I may have to go and jump in Lake Vermilion and try to freeze myself for these next four hours. Is it time yet.....? How about now....? And now....? Nope still four hours, dang it!

Yes, I'm dying here and I should be paying the company instead of them paying me for today! Just got some hand-drawn maps and ballistics recommendations/yardages ready for my two kids that are coming along. The hard part is forgetting their ballistics to remember my own!!

Unforunately, realized that I have both of their rifles zero'd in wrong and will now need a stop at the range to make sure they are correct. That isn't a bad thing but isn't the day I care to be at the range if I can help it.

Oh well, if I focus on worrying about how they are sighted-in I'll probably be able to quit running thru the packing and lists so much.

I'd rather only have to wait a day and a half than the 2 weeks I have to wait.

Two more hours for me Hee Haa. Might even get to bow hunt an hour or so tonight. We have some fresh snow on the ground (Not much but just enough) Need the winds to mellow out!!! Shack is being heated and the truck is packed. The longest week will produce the quickest weekend. No doubt!!! Good luck to all and be safe.

My brother just called me to tell me he made it in to the shack. Didn't even have to cut any trees down over the trail. He's got a barley pop open and awaiting my arrival. He just had to rub it in mad.gif . I've got two hours to go. Well, actually 2 1/2, but I'm sneaking out of here at 4:30.

It's easier to beg for forgiveness, than to ask for permission!!!

I'm in a similar but different situation. I'm stuck at class yet until around 4, thank God for laptops and wireless internet though. I knew I spent the extra dough for the longer lasting battery for a reason smile.gif I've been zoned out of the professors' lectures today and probably checked the weather and this site about 1000 times already today. I'm leaving tomorrow after a morning presentation and a quick stop at Gander Mtn. I'd also like to shoot about 5 rounds just to ease any doubts I may have. This has probably been one of the longer weeks of the year, though ever since I started bow hunting it's not AS bad as it used to be. Just gotta wash the clothes tonight and make sure everything is packed, check the list about 10 times, don't wanna get out there and realize I forgot the shells. Good luck to everyone.

Ok, here I go. I'm leaving right now. If nobody ever hears from me again it means the boss caught me and put me solitary confinement. Wish me luck!!!

I don't know about you guys but I have been sitting up my stand for about a week and a half now, my wife says I have shot a deer every night in my sleep for a week. Good thing I don't let the anticipation get to me.

Don't even get me started on all the deer I've shot while losing sleep this week. I've shot some bucks that would have made Boone and Crockett use their gloves as TP! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I know the feeling about the shortage of sleep but that won,t get cured till saturday night. I mostly try to keep busy with little projects. Right now I have about 5 pounds of venison in the smoker making pepper blend jerky and I still will sharpen a couple of knives and pack a little more stuff. Good luck to all and I hope the time passes quickly for you all.

      I will be going out for the night bite on green this week. I need to find some more fish as the wife wants a fresh fish dinner.
    • Wanderer
      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!
    • Bigfatbert
      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 .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated
    • JBMasterAngler
      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
