      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.

Anyone have a reccommendation for a good taxidermist in the area? Specifically for a stringer mount of 5 nice Crappies? Thanks in advance.

Mount 'Em Taxidermy in Clearwater does a very good job. He does take a little longer so if you are looking to get them back right away I wouldn't use him. His phone number is 320 558-2419

I have to agree with fish about jims taxidermy. He has done a walleye, a wood duck and a buck for me. All turned out fantastic and I get compliments on the mounts all the time. A few on this site have seen my mounts and maybe if they see this post they will tell ya what they think. I also have a cousin who jim did a crappie and sunfish for.

Real nice work wink.gif

I've looked in the yellow pages and found Tim's Taxidermy and Tredwell Custom Taxidermy both in Maple Lake. Is either of these the "Jim" you are referring to? Thanks for all the help, The "Tim & Jim" show is a little confusing.

There's a guy in Coon Rapids who works out of his house and does an excellent crappie at a very competitive price. I have one crappie on my wall and will definitely go back to him next time. It's been a while but I think his name is Jack Hanson and he's listed in the phone book.

Warren Wehmas out of Big Lake is good too. He's got his own shop behind his house and is very helpful with options. Fish, birds, mammals, and antler mounts. The guy uses mostly word of mouth and doesn't advertise.

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff

      Anoka county union says it is opening in the sports authority building in Coon Rapids. Cant Wait!

      I've found it interesting that the past couple years we haven't seen quite the numbers of rustys on our beach in the summer.

      There were a lot of cabbage beds on the North side of Pine Is. and on the far East end of Big Bay. Gone now! Cliff

      I never guarantee safety. Others in similar position are out on Shields. I would assume German is the same. I would do it just not telling you to do it.

      I have a skid house on Mille Lacs, the yellow perch has is no joke, camera all day long perfect sized perch for them to eat. The walleye numbers are strong, regardless what dnr says. The tough bite this year does kind of stink, but it's good for the lake. Every fish you catch is nice and healthy, and as previously stated usually big. We have been fortunate enough to get a couple slot fish (unicorns) out this year
    • FishinCT
      Just out of curiosity where were the cabbage beds on the east end? Rustys have been infested ever since we started fishing the east side

      shiners or suckers

      The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.
