      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.

Dear Mother Nature,

I would love to thank you for postponing my favorite trip home for the year. I was planning on getting done with a test in an hour and heading home for a great week of sping ice fishing. Now that you have decided to put home in a blizzard state i will be stuck out here in spearfish for at least a day or two. I am very pleased that you care about my ten hour trip and all, but i would have loved it if you could have made the trip drivable in less than 15 hrs. So, here is to you Mother Nature, i will be surfing the boards of FM until the roads clear and the driving conditions get better. Here is an idea, ill just go through ND and end up at the cabin up north, man ill show you who's boss. Wait, you covered the whole state with this darn storm of yours. For this, i thank you. Ill just continue to dream about the perch i could be pounding up north and the pannies i could be hammering in Chisago.

Thanks for the Blizzard,

Dan

Dano- there is give and take on this one... You will be thanking her once spring hits and we can use the boat landings... The lakes here are way low.. it would have been nice to spead it all out a bit, and not get it all at once.. but we could still use more...

NO MORE!!! I've shoveled my walk 8 times in the past 30 hours. I'd rather have 50 inches of rain in the spring

The first storm, over the weekend, I was in the truck 50 of 60 hours.

The second storm, I was awake in the plow truck 65 of 72 hours, from Wed. morning at 11 am until 11 am Saturday morning.

I slept for 3 hours in a bed Thursday night, from 5 pm until 8 pm, then had (6) 20 minute naps until I got home at 11 am Sat. morning.

I then slept from 12 pm Sat. afternoon until 9 am Sunday morning.

I agree, nothing like getting 3/5 of the yearly snowfall in a week and a half.

I know the contracts that were complaining about paying too much for me plowing, 2 more plowings and they'll all be dead on average for the number of times for the year.

Now that there's no snow to plow, I can't go fishing because there's too much snow on the ice...... maybe after it hits 60 on Monday, it'll be melted down.

      It's go time, i pretty much have all my gear ready for end of March for NE. Our first hunt is archery only then I get to come home and get even with the pipe bomb. Good luck Wanderer once you get that first they just start to drop after that. Bow or shotgun they are a blast. Bisonguy, Scout scout scout. The more you know what the birds are doing and want to do will help. Being a better woodsman and knowing your land and what the birds are doing will put more birds in the dirt then great calling. Patience is another huge part of turkey hunting. I am 1st to want to start running and gunning and give up on a bird i've been working but over the years have got a lot better and just need to give some setups a chance before moving. Good luck be safe.

      Anyone have a chance to play with these yet? I'm thinking of getting one to add a second unit to my boat. I have a hook 5 already and it is decent for what I use it for. Also, if I stay with just the original hook series, anyone know if there is a way to make a copy of the lake chip?

      Cliff is right. If the upper jaw extends past the lower jaw or lip (aka an underbite), then it’s a whitefish. If the lower lip is even with or extends past the upper lip, then it’s a Cisco.  This according to the DNR website. Cisco’s also seem to have an irredescent hue to them vs. whitefish, which in Lake V have a slight brown/yellow hue to them. Hard to explain in words. Bleeding fish...plenty of YouTube videos on how to do it.  I gill them. Leaves your fillets pearly white and creates way less blood and slime during the fillet process. Many say the fillet tastes better too.

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.

      this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area?

      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.

      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!

      I hear the panfish are kicking it up a bit? Any word out there?
