      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.

Long Point,12mile,16 mile report 2-4

Boar

Had an awsome weekend, went up thurs. night to get ahead of the pending storm, HA!. Fished friday till Sat. morning at Twin Islands an Hammerd nice 15-16 wallys, in 20 FOW, mainly a morning bite but would pick up afew in afternoon, red hook undera rattle reel dominated, Chubs all the way. This time of year I think they want a fatter morsel to eat before spawn. Sat. afternoon snowcated to 12 mile, a little slower out there but picked up some bigger fish from 17 to 19 1/2. Babbler said he was gonna plow out to 16 so we set out sites on that for Sun. A tough one lane road that just came to an end with no off shoots to park, but what do ya expect for 5 bucks. So running around in a truck was tough. Got stuck but ended up finally fishing in 24' An piss pounded wallys an saugies. Every 20 minuets they would come around an we would pick a few nice fish. Every thing seemed to work but you had to change often, one or two fish then you had to change, Red glow ju-ju, pink glow genz bug, Gold red glow jiga bit, no chartruse worked though. halographic image jigs worked. Over a hundred fish in two an a half days. Gonna get better. WeeHaa!! Boar

We had a group of 7 that stayed at LP wed-sun and fished 16 mile Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It was pretty good, we had a mix using shiners and fathead. Like you mentioned, lots of changing lures to get them though.

Saturday Babbler was plowing his road so I suppose it will soon be a zoo out there again. We had the entire reef to ourselves thursday and friday (except for the group of about 12 sleds/fishouses that had to drive within 25' of our group instead of going around us on their way to someplace else confused.gif... I just don't get it)

Nothing big as far as the eye's or sauger, just nice 15-17" fish and 1 40" northern (18 lbs).

boar; My wife told me about the same story that Emil a co-worker told her. Am I right in thinking he was with you?

Hey how about that, yes me an Emil have been good freinds for about ten years. I call him "The Chosen One" Fish an wildlife just seem to chose him for their taker. Ive never seen anyone catch fish like him. I've learned alot from Emil. Boar

      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.

      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.
