      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, by the sounds of it, at least you made the rounds and got to experience different lakes and locations. Too bad you couldn't hit one day, one lake, that highlighted the weekend. I just wish I could have an open weekend to get up to the cabin and fish. Cut Foot crappies will start to bite better and Bowstring crappies will always be a hit or miss option. Jumbo sunnies on my lake will pick up too. The way things are lookin', I'll finally get back up in the area the weekends of 3/10 and 3/17.

Been kinda quite on this forum....hoping someone is having fun somewhere, someplace.

I caught about 50 fish (mostly small perch) in the high banks area on winnie. I kept 2 walleyes and half a dozen nice perch...would've been able to cover more ground if it wasn't so windy out

Glenn, it's called Lake Paglaroni. grin.gifgrin.gif

Depending on weather, I am planning on hitting URL for crapps during the better weekend day....it's only 1 hour 15 minutes from my place. Otherwise, I'll be at my usual haunts in the area both weekends. I'll let you know for sure later...perhaps we can cross paths.

As far as ice out in the area, end-April is the average. Depends on the amount of rain and amount of wind. I still ice fish right up until I can no longer get on the ice safely from shore. Can't tell you the times I've been out fishing when it's an easy hop to get on the ice in the AM, and then find a 12' area of open water from shore in the PM.....I have found that I cannot walk on water. grin.gif

So I should be good through the month of march then? I'll be sure to bring my rubber raft.

      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.
