      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.

Ive been on this website for a year or so and have a question Id like to pose.What would you,as a fisherman rather see on this site,Info on a spot to catch fish or tips and technics to help you catch fish?Ive always been one to soak up as much info on fishing methods as possible.I dont pay much attention to hot bite info as this really doesnt help in the learning curve.Just curious how many people just want to know where where they are biting now.

I like to see both. I like trying new spots out.

I also like to share and learn new techiques. I have learned a ton from guys on here as far as new techs go. Until a few years ago I had never trolled a crawler harness on a board before and now its one of my favorite methods.

I like both as well. Techniques are great to hear when you are kinda new to boat fishing. But since I moved from out of state, it's nice to get a general area or lake name to find some fish. Don't need the exact location, but just finding a few fun lakes to fish is always nice.

Smannd..yes what you and northlander have said makes sense.Like you guys I dont mind hearing about stuff like,perch are going good on lake x on the rocks.This kind of info is general and most people can go out and figure out the how to contact these fish.That to me is the fun part of fishing.However it seems to me that alot of folks just want to hear,go to lake x and fish 10ft deep on the third rock bar west of the launch use this color jig and tip it with this kind of bait.I suppose some people like that kind of info but to me it didnt teach me anything,its not always about bringing home a limit of fish.I try and learn something from each outing and sometimes I learn about being skunked frown.gif but thats ok I still have fun.

I definitly like/appreciate reading everyones techniques. But, on another token, I have a wife that works, and goes to school full time on opposite hours as my work week, and we have an 18 month little bambino thats not quite ready for ishin(his lingo). Nedless to say, when I have only 2 hours to dip a line, spots are nice to hear about. Of course

I understand how it feels when you find that certain honey hole, and you show up one day to find your honey with 12 guys fishing her. blush.gif

Yes I agree with the learning every thing a person can learn about what any are going after, and there is a great deal of info on this web sight, I wouldnt limit how much you can learn here.

Like this little trick my grandpa used to do, he would take egg shells and wrap a bunch in cheese cloth, he'd put a pretty good sized weight in the bottom, dont forget the wieght. then we would go to the deep flat, he'd drill a hole and drop his wieghted egg shells to the bottom, drill a couple more holes close by, and we almost allways had fish. shocked.gif

      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.

      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
