      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.

any of you outgoing, electro savvy, technical guys want to mount a few web cams along the shore and up the mouths of the streams. that way I can have the deisel idling rods and reels ready for the ice to break free and come down those streams. oh yeah, maybe a good digital thermometer for the water temps near the cameras would be great too. I got about 20 or 30 bucks for ya to help out in the expenses. thanx for the help let us know when you get it all set up and online!!! If there is already something like this, the website address would be great! grin.gifgrin.gifwink.gif

There is one by the Aerial Bridge; there you can at least see the mouth of the harbor.

try using google earth to view the shore. I don't know much about it but if it's in realtime you should be able to make out ice from open water i would think.

Cool site Orlip.

Didn't see any N'shore rivers though. smirk.gif

youngie22, keep checking in, when the rivers open I'm sure someone will speak up. Pray for rain.

GOOGLE Earth is awesome as it is, but its not real time. frown.gif They periodically take sectional pictures and patch them together. One section can and will be bordered by others taken during different seasons and weather conditions.

I still dig it though. cool.gif

The guys at FM will be your most reliable asset!

I live on the vermillion river in Hastings, (awesome little stream). Watching it rage w/ snow melt made me get even more excited for the shore. What a "flash" snow melt the last few days. THe waterfalls down here look really cool w/ all this whater. Don't think the brownies in there no what is going on. THanx far that info on the cameras; had no clue those were there. I think google earth isn't very real time, would be interested in nowing what tyoe of cycles they might run. Gotta get out, need some trout!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

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