      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.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Everyone that posts here spend a fair amount of time on the river wink.gif. I would like to be able to recognize a few of you when I am out on the water. Most have listed there boat in other posts, but I think a list would help me out.

I will go first:

Green chev extended cab long box with a Triton FS 190. White with black and red accents, Mecury motor, or the same truck with a crestliner fisher-something-or-other 1750? tan. Mercury motor. (neighbor's boat).

honda- does your hound bark like crazy when somebody walks by? I remember a white dog a few weeks ago just eager to get out of the truck and lick me to death.

Yeah he barks but he whines more smirk.gif. Sometimes he whines so much that it annoys the crap out of me. And dont get him started on swimming. He would throw a stick in the water by himself, and go fetch it, just cuz he will get to go swimming.

usually put in at the Hudson launch... blue Yukon. My boat is a Monark King185 but I pulled off all the labels except the "185". Boat is tan/black with a 140 Suzuki. I'm either by myself or with my fishing buddy (son) and a friend or two of his.

18' Tracker Tundra with 135 Opti and a 9.9 Merc kicker. Kind of goldish in color being pulled by the "big black bus", a black Suburban. I'm sure glad the price of gas has come down a bit. Looking at getting into a new Lund 2010 but mama has veto'd that for now. Love the Tundra but the boat control is so much easier with a tiller.

'97 red F-250 reg. cab Powerstroke/ pulling a '84 T-14XL/ 82' 20 horse Johnson. Gotta love having more money in your tackle, rods/ reels, and electrnics than your whole boat is worth.

It's not the rig or the money or necessarily the equipment one has, as it is the knowledge one has of species and area to be fished!

10-4; if you have alot of that knowledge; you don't need any of that! Maybe just some boots, string, and saftey pin or 2. These warm temps make a guy want to get in the boat pretty bad; I can barely wait.

I have a black/grey alumacraft lunker with a 40 hp merc. 16 foot tiller model. Sometimes I have a white Lhasa apso with me. Don't laugh too much grin.gif, she has brought me good luck in the past though. She has been with me when I caught 2 of my biggest walleyes.

      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.
    • Flash
      Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"

      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!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      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.
    • Wanderer
      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.
