      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, happy campers, looks like the easy going on Bside is done for the last couple weekends of laker season.

We got four inches of light snow last weekend, and we've already gotten five more of heavier stuff from late last night through this morning, with some more expected this afternoon. Also, it's all getting blown and drifted from strong winds.

Only 4x4 full-size vehicles should probably consider Bside OK to travel on, and the lee sides of islands will be too socked in even for those. I'd guess wheelers, even with chains, will be a thing of the past.

I reckon it's snowmobile time! grin.gif

I don't know if the public landing at Van Vac is plowed or not, but I think it likely will be. Van Vac Road gets plowed by the county guys pretty quickly, so the lot should get it too. But if it's not, you can just pull up alongside the road and park if you have to.

Great Outdoors, any idea when Van Vac gets plowed?

It wasn't plowed tonight when I drove by at 4:30, looked like some drifting along with the 8-9 inches we got. It may be tomorrow some time, but don't expect it until Monday. I don't know if the same driver is plowing it as before. He was very good. Call me at the shop around 7:30 or so, I'll look when I drive by and let you know if anything has changed. If I have time, I'll take a swipe up and down the hill, but won't have time to play with the lot.

      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...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.

      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!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      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.

      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.
