      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.

lucky, i'd say you shouldn't have any problems as long as you don't go blazing off the beaten path. drove the truck down to the ice off of maple there but wasn't going to get much further on sun morning. there were a few sleds out on clapps and the snow was pretty well crusted over.

No road on the lake. About 10" of snow and 2" of sludge on top of the ice.

Just an update, there is a road plowed from the north dnr landing to the island. There was one spot on the road with 10-12 inches of standing water but the ice is holding up well at about 2ft or so. The crappies and sunnies were biting well on Ratsos and Shrimpos in 15-16 feet.

That plowed road must have melted some and recieved run off from the rest of the melting.

We were there yesterday and that road is as slick as can be...seems like it would be really scary driving on that and breaking through as you went? Someone drove on it for about 20 yards and got off as soon as they could!

People are driving all over the lake, there are some mushy spots and they will be getting mushier with the warmer weather and direct sunshine.

There are a couple of heaves that really put a hitch in your undies when you go over them! I no likie!

Still alot of ice, but I think that the accesses will deteriorate quickly for vehicle travel with a little warm weather....ATV travel will keep you fishing for awhile.

Lots of people out there yesterday. We got some sunnies and a few crappies....biggest sunnie 10 inches....biggest crappie, a 13 inch white....only one of each the rest of the fish were hand sized, or smaller. Plenty of little ones and lots of little perch.

      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.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
