      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.

Verizon Cell phone hunting / fishing related software application

Recommended Posts

Swill

I just wanted to share with everyone that I use a really nice cell phone software application that is really handy for hunting and fishing. It is called Weather Scout,by Gander Mountain, and when you dial into the software application with your cell phone you can view...

Radar

Forecast with wind speed, direction, etc

Weather Map

Baro Map

Fish and Game Forecast

and IR Clouds

It was a one time download for I think 5 dollars that is well worth it. I am not sure if only Verizon cell phone users can use it or not, but again this software application is very handy...

Any others out there using similar cell phone applications? I also must admit that I have played World poker tour online in my deer stand when the mid day action was really slow! smile.gif That can be fun when you are bored to death in the stand and you are trying to stick in the stand during that 10-noon slot....

yep I have the same thing on my phone only my carrier is RCC. It is kinda handy to have to see the weather forecast, radar and that kind of stuff. I have also been guilty of playing games on stand when I get bored. But I figure it is better than me getting ansy and moving around looking at everything. grin.gif I also have Fox Sports Mobile so I can keep track of my Fantasy Football Players while out hunting. What a technology, but I do feel a little guilty at times sitting out there playing with my phone. grin.gif

I use My-Cast and I think it was probably one of my best purchases this year.

Nothing can beat watching radar real time on the water.

I was looking at the Verizon web site for the Weather Scout. It states that there is a $5.95 monthly subscription. I would get it if it was a one time fee. Are you sure it is a one time fee?

One time "download", not fee wink.gif

The one thing nice about the subscription, is that you can cancel it for the months you don't need it.

My phone says "You will be charged $5.49 monthly for this app. Proceed?" when I choose Weather Scout (Verizon).

I assume from this that you pay $5.49 every month on your bill plus are charged for airtime whenever you use it.

      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.
