      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.

Fun League in Chisago Lakes Area

Recommended Posts

Dan Brelje

Going to start a bass league for fun this summer. It will be a Free bass league with a tournament type setting. We are going to use a tape measure format to allow us to fish catch and release lakes. The goal of this league/group is to have FUN during friendly bass competions. It will help the rookies (like myself) get a feel for competitive bass fishing for FREE.

here is what i've got so far.

-Friendly competion using tape measure format (record all fish, top 5 are the ones that count). This will allow us to fish chisago which is catch and release only.

-Have the gatherings on a weeknight, i vote either tues or thurs. Meet at the access between 5-5:30. (If it fits everyones schedule.) Designate an end time to tally up the results and share what worked and didn't work among the group.

I will be making a excel spread sheet with room for 15-20 fish for each event. The sheet will include: time,length, lure used, depth caught. We will use this setup so people can share what worked for them and see what worked for others at the end of the event.

The Rules for these events are simple.

-Anyone can come

- bump board measuring device

-Have a GOOD TIME

- events measured by boat, 1 or 2 fishers

here is a temporary schedule i have set up. I tried to avoid all the tourny's that are going on that i know of.

Week of/ Lake

June 3-9 Green

June 10-16 Chisago

June 17-23 Big Marine

June 24-30 N/S Center

July 1-7 Forest

July 8-14 Chisago

July 15-21 Big marine

July 22-28 Green

July 29-4 N. Center

Aug. 5-11 S. Center

Aug 12-18 Chisago

Aug 19-25 Big marine

Aug 26-1 Green

Anyone who is interested please let me know, i am very flexible with the schedule to try and make it work for the greatest number of guys. danbrelje at yahoo

Looks like tuesdays are leading the pack for the day of week.

I've recieved some pretty good ideas thus far and would like to hear new ones if anyones got some.

One i really liked was a point system that awarded an individual or boat the fun league champion. For instance, if we have an event every week that would be 15 weeks. Take your best 6-8 (can be decided later) weeks and add up your totals to see season point total. Point total champ will be crowned.

Trying to keep this league fun and just for bragging rights. If anyone else has an idea or two it would be great to hear it!!

Here comes open water. For anyone interested in a league w/ no cash on the line, this one should be fun.

      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...

      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!!!
