      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.

I am wondering how the ice is around Mora, I was hoping it holds out for another week. I want to head out over the 31st but I don't want to make a trip to find out I should have brought the boat.

I don't know about the lakes right around Mora, but I live on a lake about 20 miles from Mora. I was out on it yesterday, and we still have two feet of good ice. We have the same weather, so I would think Mora's lakes would still have fishable ice. Probally not quite the info you wanted, but the best I can do.

Thanks for the up date, I was thinking about hitting fish lake and just walking out but who knows I go 3 bills so if I can walk out most people can walk out. Good luck on the ice!!!

Not sure about fish lake, but people are still fishing Ann. Some nice sunnies have been coming out of there the last week or so after a horrible winter bite out there. the access off 47 is closed, so you'll have to use the other one to the north east.

Bigjeff I was out on Fish on Friday and a guy was driving his Subaru all around the lake. I really thought he was going to go thru but he made it off the lake.The ice will be good for sat and sun but its going fast.

Ok, I am thinking of going on Sunday to Fish, think it would be possible to walk out there? How much ice was out there? I am a little worried about the where the river comes in, with the warm weather I am thinking it is eating ice fast. Thanks for the updates

i am near the Mora area but have not seen the lakes like fish inthe last 2 weeks.....but i am not even 20 miles to the west and the lakes are not for venturing out on anymore.....i was on green on saturday in princeton and you had 20 ft to get to the main sheet of ice and even then the ice was starting to really look bad. the last three days have convinced me that ice season is done for unless you go 4+ hours north of the cities like red lake!!! Good luck but you might want to bring a pole and shore fish!! Alot of lakes have been losing 2-4 inches of ice if not more a day!!!!!!! crazy.gif

      I will be going out for the night bite on green this week. I need to find some more fish as the wife wants a fresh fish dinner.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .

      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated

      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.
