      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.

Hit up the Big Pond today and found a good 44-46 inches of ice everywhere. It has been awhile since I have seen ice this deep. We went out of zippel bay, got a late start from the 'Falls and were fishing by noon.

Started fishing in about 24'-25' of water(from the 'ducer) graphed lots and lots of walleyes, but most of smaller proportions. At 5:00 we moved in shallow, in 17'-18' of water. It was looking pretty discouraging until 6:15 when the LX-3 lit up with five fish. For the next half hour we pounded on them as they fed like there was no tomorrow(I love the big pond).

All in all we ended up with enough fish to save the day and to have for a great meal. I will be up in a few days and you can guarantee that I will be there at sunrise to catch that morning bite in shallow.

We fished in the afternoon until 7:00 PM up at Knight's/Bridges area in 28 feet by the Riverbend houses. Wound up with 5 walleye/saugers, 1 12.5 inch perch, and one burbot. Saw lots of fish on the graph at time and missed a lot of fish. Probably threw 10 dinkers back. Good time though.

Tough bite on Friday afternoon for me out from Pine....28fow and 3 keeper Sauger in 3 hours.

Waypoint on some rocks out from Babblers was a whole nother story Saturday and Sunday.

March Madness for sure and the Walleyes were just plain snappin Saturday in 24fow. Bright sun on Saturday and the fish were liking Chartreuse and pink/white colored lures and taking Fatheads, Dace, and Shiners with equal gusto. Jiggin and deadsticks both busy. Nothing big but gobs of quality eaters thru the day and big numbers of fish for each of us.....30 to 50 per line or there abouts!!!

Sunday same spot a bit tougher....Only 15-25 per line! Cloudy day and gold was the ticket for me, by the end of the day every rod I brought had a gold something or other on it. Seemed the fish prefered Shiners but caught fish on all 3 types of minners too.

Got some dandy Jumbo's out there both days too, not much for Sauger either day on that spot though.

Sore eyes as I forgot my shades and a bit of a tan/windburn from bucket sittin all weekend. Good friend and his daughter were up from the GR area so that made the weekend all the better watching her put on a schooling....She had 1 super hot hole that was really pumping them out on Saturday and my cheeks hurt from laughing so much!

Gosh what am I doing at home.....Should be fishin!!!

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
