      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.

Been pretty slow for me. With the gun season just getting over the deer seem to still be a little skitish.Have seen a couple small does just before dark but way to small to shoot. Still got 46 days to tag the 8 ptr ive seen. Yes he is still alive. Seen him one night coming home from work at 11 pm standing on the road. Glad the gun hunters didnt get him.

I haven't been in the woods this week so I'm not sure what is going on. I was hoping the snow would stick a little longer so I could see where they were moving, but not so. I still plan on sticking one before we get into the ice season. I was out on the water (Gull) tonight and we (Tim) caught about 8 walleye's. A couple were keepers the rest went back. Jigs. I was going for big momma but she didn't bite. We did land a 27 incher on Sunday evening though. I'm sorry, you wanted to know about hunting. I had my 4 year old son up in the tree with me last Saturday and that was pretty cool (long story). We did see a couple of does that were getting chased around. We didn't see the buck, but my neighbor drilled him about 200 yards or so from us. It only had half a rack (3 pointer). I hunt mainly public land and some private that gets hunted pretty heavily, so I think they are a bit shy at this point and probably sticking tight to the thick stuff until night fall. I hope to give you a report one of these days though!

Good luck meat,

Walleyedan

The bucks are holding pretty close to the does. Only saw a couple of spikers this afternoon. Still waiting to see the big one.

      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.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      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!!!
