      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.

STAY OFF! I was at the bait box. was told that a truck went thru so being the smart guy I am, I parked my ruck at the landing and decided to take the wheeler. Well, that was at 11am. I just got out of the shower from being wet to the waist. The pressure ridge out from the landing (behind the trailer park thats behind the holiday gas station) has 2-3 ft of water on both sides of it under the drifting snow. I had to take my truck out part way and pull the wheeler out onto good ice. Luckilly it only got stuck in the slush, no water in the engine or crank case.

Maybe I can get out fishing next weekend.

Wade, take it easy on the new wheeler man wink.gif. Glad ya made it out alright. The harbor and bays are really starting to open up and split cracks. This new snow will only make it worse. Be carefull if your heading down there and don't drive your trucks out there crazy.gif

Wade Im glad your ok.

Ya all the pressure ridges and cracks are opening up with the wind and snow insulating the cracks. I went in up to my knee last night, luckily the opening was only about 16" wide.

Be very very careful on the river, even walking. I surely wouldnt drive out there.

Glad to here you are o.k. Wade. I was out there on Saturday and that truck was sitting there up to it's headlights. It looked to me that he was driving parallel to the pressure ridge and dropped through. I bet that the ice races out there on Saturday did not help things out at all. there had to be at least 50 - 75 rigs out there on the ice. I think I may have taken my last trip to Allouez unless I enter from the Wisconsin Point side.

Even the spots to get onto Alouiz off of Wi. Point are starting to look discolored. Im thinking my bay fishing days a very numbered. Oh well it sure was fun while it lasted. This years ice walleye bite on the river is probably the best one I have ever experienced. Lets hope we see a few more of these in our lifetimes. laugh.gif

I had heard about those perch, and was trying to get out there after them. Seems I missed allot of good fishing this year, man I hate my job. I tell you , if it wasn't for work, I'd get ALOT more fishing done. Oh well, maybe I can still get out there next weekend. If not, thereis always open water fishing.

      Darn you guys!!   How am I supposed to stay at work and pretend to be interested now? There's nothing better than bow hunting turkeys in the spring after a long winter!

      Hey all just a reminder you will need a new license March 1!! Well it looks like we should be ice fishing for another month or more. There is some coming, so if you need to get you house off the lake it might be wise do it now. bites: green crappies, little elk gills sorting but you will catch them eaters, skogman has good from numbers of gills and crappies, and Lori lake for crappies. the turkey fever is starting to set in for me

      Hi @Rick, I'm also looking to take my family out this weekend. I  have a 3/4 ton with a 8x24 ice castle. Was looking at Shields or German. Is it pretty safe with my rig? I know some of these smaller lakes are aerated and can have some soft spots. Just want to be extra safe with the family. Also, the fishing been ok down there? Thanks in advance! Justin

      Hey @jlang_04, i'm looking to take my kids down that area and was curious how's the ice for a 3/4 ton with a ice castle 8x24. I'm sure the ice is thick enough but I also know some lakes are aerated or have current and the ice can be soft in some spots. So I just want to be safe with my family. Also, how's the fishing down there?  Thanks, Justin

      Up until about seven or eight years ago we were on Head-o-lakes bay. Minimal to no Rustys. Just the old school guys with the big blue boxer-mit claws. We were seeing rounded gobies.  We're on Frazer now. Wow! It's indescribable how many of those buggers there are. We've been trying to do our part by having frequent crawfish boils. Haven't made a dent but fun and tasty to try.

      will definitely be hunting turkeys again this year.  Love chasing these birds. Intend to go the archery route this year for the first time.  I have 2 kids that always are excited every year, until a couple of early mornings wain thier enthusiasm!  Figuring archery will allow me go on those days the kids dont want to wake up and I think I have something figured out.  Hope my skills will be up to the challenge.

      I've had very good luck with them also. Always pick some up before heading out on the lake.

      Was thinking about heading up the shore for some open water fishing. Was just wondering if their is alot of ice floating around and if not wat kind of wind would make it difficult to fish from shore? Thanks
