      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'll be out the next two mornings. Going to do some hunting and work on taking the blind down. The ducks will be safe, I have a hard time shootin straight with the tears in my eyes. So hard to say goodbye to yet another waterfowl season.

Last week all of our ice had left and a good amount of divers came into the area. Got 16 ducks on Sat and 6 on Sun. Mostly goldeneyes, bills, mallards and butterballs. Quite a few swans and fish ducks hanging out. Starting to look like most of the birds have come threw here.

Good luck, be safe

I took a day off from those sneaky deer today and hit the big waters for some divers. My friend and I met on Leech Lake to try out some new waters and found a few birds. Bluebills and Goldeneyes primarily, with some Buffies and big Common Mergansers moving around. Nice to see some big ol' bluebills in the face again in the stiff winds to our backs. grin.gif

Not a lot of ducks around on the big lake, but on my way home I did see divers on about every lake I drove by in areas NE of Brainerd.

We are short lived for migrations I think. Most of the birds seemed to have moved on.

Water temp was 33 degrees on Leech. One big cold front could end it very quickly. wink.gif

I'm hitting the Rainy River after a dentist appointment this morning. I've been chasing deer since Wed. and it's time to get after some birds before I head back down to school tomorrow. Fresh 2.5" of the white stuff fell last nite so I might be needing the white camo. Rumors are there's been geese and mallards out there, but I'll see for myself today.

so haaad

Lots of mallards and geese still out in the west part of the state. We flushed the biggest flock of mallards that I have ever seen out of a field pond. Maybe a thousand+??? It truly was an awesome sight, just like a picture out of Ducks Unlimited. The question I had was...how the heck to they not fly in to each other??? smile.gif

The geese and the mallards played the game this past weekend. We had great shoots both friday and saturday. You can't beat it when there is snow on the ground and birds in the sky!

      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.

      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.
