      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.

replace the carpet. smile.gif

Besides having a professional come in I don't know what other options you have. And even with that you may not get it all out.......did you search for other cleaning tips?

you might want to try Mr. Clean Magic Eraser's, I believe it was that brand, I used on our carpet when my daughter spilled grape juice on cream carpet with that and resolved I got it out...

I have gotten many stains out using the white can of Chem-Dry spray you can buy in the store. It is the same stuff the pros use. My wife once set a bottle of Old English on the carpet and the cat knocked it over and leaked for quite a while and left a huge spot. I used a can of this and got it all out and that was on a off white, speckled carpet. Worth a try.

Good luck.

The kid loves these things. He had one before and the bulb burnt out and melted the side of it so I threw that away but he wouldn't part with this one. He's done with them now!!!

Try Spot Shot. Its worked for anything that we have gotten on our carpets including red wine and markers. For $3.99 its worth a shot.

Regular rubbing alcohol - I've had great luck with it. Dampen a wash cloth/rag (make sure the rag won't create more of a mess) with it and daub/rub, etc etc.

Good luck

I have used non-chloronated brake parts cleaner on lots of stains around the house. Spray on-rub off. Try on a scrap or in a spot out of the way- had one person tell me it melted the carpet in there car. I use it anywhere I have a stain that I need to get out!!!!!

Definitely try in an inconspicuous place. We had some brake cleaner at the shop that was melting the clear coat on aluminum wheels. After polishing brake dust out of four we switched brands.

      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.
