      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.

LOTS OF OPEN WATER AT THE EDGES WILL NEED KNEE BOOTS BY SAT.

AFTER A LITTLE BIT OF SEARCHING I WAS ABLE TO FIND SOME NICE GILLS AND A COUPLE CRAPPIES HOWEVER IT WAS SHORT LIVED DUE TO THE MAJOR FRONT THAT HAPPENED WHILE I WAS OUT THE FISH WENT FROM BEING 2-4 OF THE BOTTOM AND SNAPPIN' REAL GOOD TO BOTTOM HUGGIN AND UN-COOPERATIVE WITHEN ABOUT 5 MINUTES.

MOTHER NATURE SURE HAS A WAY OF CHANGING IT UP!ALL IN GOOD FUN THOUGH

Thanks for the report.Sheilds has always been good to me in March...except the last 2 years.A friend that lives on the lake tells me there are so many cormarants on the lake in the summer that he feels they have degraded the fishery.Since I've fished it only during winter,I can only say that I've not done well there the last couple of years.What's your take on the lake?Has my timing just been bad and I've simply chosen poor days to fish Shields or,do you feel it's not what it used to be?confused.gif

2 DA GILLS

luckycrank,

Did you access the lake from the public access on the north end of the lake? That is one thing I have noted during late ice. The north accesses open early and southern access points are a better option longer.

How was the ice once you were on the ice?

accesssed it from kaderliks bay ,use extreme caution by the point as there is rotten ice (whiteish/yellowish chunky stuff below ice) in the middle of the plowed road and is dangerous to walk on watch where your walking and you could be all right confused.gif

      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!
