      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.

Consumption Advisories ????

Recommended Posts

I recently heard a rumor that it is not suggested to keep fish from the Mankato are due to high fecal matter in the water.

Does anyone have any information about this?

Ya Harvey Lee and Rushing keep pooping in the water. shocked.gif

I checked the U of M website, department of health, the pollution control agency, and other Minnesota river basin monitoring agencies and did not find anything new.

I just got off the phone with my buddy that works for the PCA and he has heard nothing of this in the Mankato area.He did say if you are fishing there that you should wash your hands before you have a sandwich as the weater purity is not very good.

He knows nothing of a spill of any type in this area.

JP,

Now I suppose your gonna tell us to pitch our walleyes as well........just to be on the safe side.

I'll take my chances with Hansons UNDERGOO rinsing down the river.

I will let my wife know to advise the medics if I get violently ill after I consume my tasties.

Dtro, you better hand yours over to me for safe keeping and inspection.

What makes you think I have any? grin.gif

Not only that, but I seem to recall you taking home a limit the last time we were out. You saying they are gone already?

I know where there is more. wink.gif

Its not so much that the fish may be tainted as I will not be able to eat when the thought of Hanson in his "Fundaroos" crosses my mind.

I just got over seeing him trot across frozen Red Lake in his boxers last year.

What is up with Hanson, water and taking off his pants?

So I guess this means that those of us that spend more time on the rivers and eating fish from the rivers........are more likely to get ourselves pregnant.

At least being pregnant will give me a better excuse for my binge eating.

Or, maybe I am already pregnant. I sure hope I deliver soon. I went from 200 to 260 over the last few years and I knew there was a good explanation!!!!

      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.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.  
    • IceHawk
      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
