      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.

Recommended Posts

Lets start a list of resorts that are maintaining ice roads.

Barnacles, Lyback's and Hunters Point are three that I know of. Heading to Barnacles in the morning.

Do these roads that are being plowed have access points where you cant break thru to go off on your own.The plow berms can be a bear to get thru.

You won't get far with a wheeler or a truck. Was up there all weekend, struggled in areas with snowmobiles. Lots of water creeping up on the ice.

they kind of left us high and dry last year when there was plenty of ice left. They pulled there bridge while Barnacles kept there's going for weeks and won me over big time. I usually get more fishing tips from these guys too, they seem to work harder at it.

I think Hunters was out to 3 mile this weekend. 2 mile for sure. With the 40 degree temps there is going to be mucho water on the ice this weekend. Gonna be tough traveling even with sleds. I think the Whitecap owner said he was gonna plow out his road this week to for the big perch pounder deal.

was up yesterday out of Hunters, they were out plowing a lot yesterday, Definately making it out to the middle. We think we were on 7 mile, and roads went a long way further north/west of where we were. Fishing wasn't any good however.

Barnacles plowed roads to the flats yesterday. Hunters and Barnacles roads meet at the jug. Took me most of the day, but I found them in 32 feet.

He has great road service always keeping them safe and maintained and I will always trust him based on my expirence with him in the last couple of years. A great guy who will always give you good information!

I talked to a buddy this evening (Thurs) who is up on the NW west side. He said Terry's Harbor (St Albans Bay) has wide plowed roads out to several good spots including deep rocks on Seguichi point, Sherman's point, Sherman's mud flat, Rockpile Flat, Brown's Point, 7 Mi Flat, and some other spots I didn't catch. He said the perch are hitting on the deep rocks.

Eddy's been busy out of Lyback's this week and has an excellent road system to all kinds of structure. rocks, mud, gravel, take your pick. he's even got roads following break lines to make things easier.

It took us all morning but we finally found the JUMBOS!!! 22ft to 26ft of water just off the Doe Island Reef. The JUMBOS are in deeper water as we caught smaller perch in the shallower water.

The weather is UNBELIEVEABLE!!! You better get up here and fih these GIANT JUMBOS! Its going to be a great month of fishing here on Mille Lacs!

We have around 5 miles of roads gouing from Cedar Creek along Doe Island Reef and In the Bay.

See ya up here at Mille Lacs Lake!!!

I will post pictures later today.

Fish On!!!

      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.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet
    • tca12
      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.  
    • IceHawk
      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. 
    • mrpike1973
      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.
