      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.

Well, I'm all set to hit the river saturday morning, went and got ten gallons of premium in the boat, 3 more scoops of fatties to go along with the misc. redtails/ shinners, got 2 bobber rods loaded, 2 bottom bouncer rods loaded, 2 jig rods and a couple two riggen rods ready the go, batteries have been checked, GPS batteries are on the charger, I'm pumped up! The bridge area around Prescott is always a good choice this time of the year, as it also is in the spring, years past its been very good but its kind of loud around there, The river just has so many other less pressured spots that are peaceful, I will most likely be heading for them. Looks like it will be me and my dog out on saturday if he's up for it! grin.gif

Walli, perhaps we'll see you down there tomorrow. I was planning on staying away from Prescott as I'm sure there'll be more boats there than the rest of the river combined. I have 5 or 6 spots between Prescott and the Kinni that I plan to hit and if you're around I'll say hey. I'll be in a Tracker Tundra with a couple of Mercs on the back. I don't see too many of those down there so I should be easy to spot.

What types of depths/locations are you fishing with bobber rigs this time of year? Never have done much bobber fishing for river walleyes but always wanted to give it a try.

My partner and I fished the Vermillion yesterday. We caught about 25 wallege, 1 sauger. Biggest fish were a 22.75, 19.25 & 18.75. A few boats were in the area catching crappies in the timber. Pitched jigs with fatty's and twister tails to shore. Did lose a couple nice fish, too.

I did talk with a gentleman at the landing when we left who had fished Prescot. He said he caught two fish all day. Hope this helps.

Alright here's the scoop on bobber fishing the river at this time of year, I've found that ice jiggen spoons under a bobber work real well tipped with a fatty also vertical jigging them works well also, bringing ice jigging techquies to the river, strange but works!

USE2BWALLEYEFANATIC Hey I'm planning on fishing between Prescott and the Kinni also. 98% of the time I fish below the kinni somewhere, I only made it above the kinni 4 times this year and there isn't anything up beyond that point that I can't find below it. I've focused below the Kinni as long as I've been fishing the river so I know that 6 miles pretty good but I got alot to learn, the AQUA VA is a great tool and it will be in the boat in the morning, see you on the water! grin.gif

      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!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      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.
