      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.

36"er?

Recommended Posts

White-tips

I was working a boat show yesterday and was told of a supposed 36" walleye caught on teh big pond? Any confirmations of this? I was expressly told that it was not the photo of the catholic priest's fish from Tobin and also not the photo of the new Washington state record recently caught on the Columbia River where the Snake dumps in. Any idea where they're seeing this photo?

Whitetip's: I got an Email from "Old Guide" about two weeks ago with a Picture of the fish. It was caught over by Twin Islands off of Long Point. It was reportedly 18 pounds, which I thought would be a new state record... Pat, if you can cast some light on the subject, let us know more about it... Kaz

That one has legs, I get a new wave of emails every 90 days or so asking me about the 36” monster caught near Twin Island. One day I hope it will be true but every one so far has been the priest on Tobin Lake.

Fisky: I have the picture on my computer up north.. Pat Fisher sent it to me, and it did look different then the one from last year.. Looked like it was taken in a fishhouse. Maybe you could give Pat a call in Warroad and ask him to send it to you... I don't think it was the same fish.. Kaz

As far as pics of the walleye thats floated around the internet for the past couple years, go to google and type exactly this in the search:

tobin lake walleye father

Select the first internet link at the top of the list. Father Walleye is pretty darn good apparently. The bottom picture on that page is the one everyone is talking about above.

I don't know how all these rumors get started, but everyone always jumps to a conclusion. I am not saying that it is not possible, but we would have heard some solid evidence from a newspaper or resorts.

As far as that goes I also find it funny that no one has caught on to the same father in all the rumors. They started that one about the harbor down here in duluth not too long ago. I checked it out myself as well...the fish mentioned were caught in tobin lake saskatchawan...the same pic from the rumor can be acces by googling the key words mention two posts above. Nice fish though, but not caught on LOW.

Makes for a good read, but that's about it.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing Guys!!

White Tips and all,

Its funny that this is specifically NOT the fish caught on

Tobin when it is.

If you hear of a 36" Walleye it is not going to be a true

story. 34 is about all these fish will get. That 19 pounder

in Washington State was 34 inches long. Not to say its

impossible because there might be a mutant out there some

where but unless the story teller hands you a picture of the fish while

talking you can safely discard the information.

With the magic of Photo Shop and digital imaging its funny

we dont see more of these 36"ers.

If you go to google and type in "tobin lake walleye father" like the other guy said, and click on the first link it brings you to a 10 pound club. There are two photos of "Father Walleye" on there right in a row from Oct. 25 of '04 and the picture has to be photoshopped or something. If you look at it, there is a transom mount trolling motor just behind the guy on his right. Nothing wrong with a trolling motor in a fishing picture, but he is in a camper style fish house from the looks of the photo. I don't know anyone that is going to try to power their fish house accross the lake with a trolling motor.

Just thought I would point that out.

I dont think thats in an ice house.

Its in a living room.

And if its from October, that pretty much seals the deal that its not in an ice house.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,
