      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'd never been to Rochester before until my girlfriend started PT school there this fall. This morning I was driving home north on 52 and all I can say is WOW, there were geese everywhere. They were on both sides of the highway as far back in the corn fields as I could see and the sky was full of them too! I kept waiting to see some dropping out of the sky but didn't see or hear anyone shooting. Why is that?? To sum it up guess I'm just jealous of the number of geese you have in this area. Good luck to all hunting them.

Tippman,

I moved up to Oronoco and was sick of seeing them flying over so I finally got off my butt and asked permission to hunt the field behind my house. Guy was perfectly fine with it. Since it is by some houses, I introduced myself to the closest ones and explained what I would be doing and that the 500 foot minumum distance would be followed.

Here are the results

Gotta eat some since I got one Wed night also and now I have my posession limit in the freezer. Maybe give some to my buddy to smoke.

So many geese passed/missed also. First time out in 9 years but the convenience of hunting right behind my house was just too much to pass up.

You like my real hardwoods camo for hunting in the corn field? I should probably go get some different stuff.

Hey Tippman...I know that this is a bit off topic, but I was wondering if you could tell me more about your girlfriends PT school (at the clinic I assume). I plan on going back to school shortly and PT is what I was leaning towards. Please send me an email to chaddjurg@hotmail.com

Thanks,

Chad

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      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.

      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.
