      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.

I agree, Arnesens is a first class outfit. We had our first experience with them this winter, and will definitely be going back.

I just got back from two days up there at Arnesen's fishing in the FOP fishing tournament. Out of 4 classes of fish I took the winning prize for Walleye. Won a Nice portable fish house.. fishing was pretty good. they are a class act up there and you could not go wrong with them. We fished two spots out past pine and did very well in each. One spot was lots of med. fish.. they other one was less fish but bigger fish.

Ticket for the good fish is either dead sticking or tip ups for Eyes.... for some reason they are super jumpy all of a sudden. the slightest jigging will send them running... Right off the bottom.

Happy fishing.

How much do they charge to use their lake access? And can you get pretty far out from their access?

Arneson's Rocky Point does not plow a road. Richard Babbler has an access just before Arneson's. He charges $5.00 and you can get to Gull Rock. His road had been closed to any points past that for the last week now. Don't know if it's open yet or not. With the coming snow not sure what he will do....

My bad, I was up by Adrians.. oops.. I got them mixed up but both are class acts..We still have a house out on the lake by Arnesen's past Gull Rock.. wonder how we will be able to get it off the lake if we get more snow or that crack opens up more. For the most part they are all very good at what they do. It is getting to the point that if there are not roads out there, you could get stuck easy. to be on the safe side, I would try to go where there are roads now or go in a bommer.

Thanks guys. I agree Arnesen's is a class act and this will be our third year up there.

Wisker, nice to see the FOP does something like that, we don't get that with LELS; atleast that I know of. Is that an extra charge or does your dues cover most of the cost? Happy fishing and be safe.

From Rocky Point to the East:

Babblers, Long Point, Zipple Bay, Morris Point, Adrians Resort Access at Wheelers Point.

Watch the weather, they are calling for around 12" here in TRF, a little less the farther north you go, but you still have to drive through all this to get there.

Reelguy, our FOP LODGE 8 runs an outstanding get together.. We pay $60 entry fee, that includes a monster supper and a free bar until it runs out. Prizes up the wazooooo.. Very good time. The committie that puts it on deserves a real pat on the back.

Wiskers, I just talked to another lady that was there and said it was a good time. May have to see if the MPPOA would consider something like that? I would imagine it could be huge then.

      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.
