      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.

Babbler's Road

Recommended Posts

I heard Babbler has his road going around the crack by 12 mile to get to 16 mile or Arneson'r reef. Has anyone heard if he is going to have his bridge operational for the weekend to shorten the drive to 16 mile? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Well as of last nite just before dark the bridge was closed still. The road now runs towards 12mile then doglegs back adding about 2.5 miles if you want to get to Arnesons or 16mile or anywheres on the N side of the crack.

Road was all refrozen anyhow! Kinda lookin like some cracks between shore and that big bridged breaker could possibly become a problem with the temps moving up and down??? They had done a bit of buldging since the weekend it looked like yesterday.

How do you think it will be to get to Arneson's Reef, or just the north side of Gull Rock?

Just talked to a buddy who is up there right now (Friday). He said it was a long, bumpy ride around the crack.

mad.gif I can vouch for that. Very slow and very rough ride to Arneson's reef on Sat. The fishing and weather made up for it though.

Was out to Arnesons and 16 on Sat. I used ATV but plenty of trucks were out and about. A fair amount of water on the roads and not as much other places. It was full raingear on the ATV. I don't think he'll keep his road open to trucks too much longer. If you do a search his phone number will come up. I would call b/4 coming up. The ice has softened up a bit but still plenty solid. Have your extension on. The bite was OK. I fished Arnesons in the AM and caught 6-8 fish 12-14" I could have kept but only kept 1 15", all on jigging spoon. Went out to 16' and missed the set on a what felt like a hog within 5 minutes and then just caught a few more. All in all I had a blast. The fishing wasn't fast and furious but I still caught about 25 fish throughout the day and we are having fresh fish for din din tonight.

      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.

      I did not have as much of a problem with them eating my crawlers on my lindy rigs last summer either! Maybe they are finally getting thinned out by the fish and other predators! Cliff
