      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.

Hutchinson Area Get-Togethers

Recommended Posts

B@ssDoctor

Time to start thinking about a Multi-Species Get Together ever week on Wednesdays. Poeple have shown interest in the past few years, but nothing has happened. I know there are other weekly get togethers that people belong to, but I would like to start a new one.

Would anyone be interested in this......

Since I didn't officially call it a L%@$#ge or a Tou%@ment, I hoping that LMITOUT will let this slide...... laugh.gif

I think that a get-together would be more likely to happen rather than a structured league or tournament as most would prefer to go fishing without the rules and pressure and just have a good time. Come whatever time you make it and leave when you want to type of deal. Not to say there can't be any side wagers wink.gif but with no "fee" I bet more people would be willing to participate.

If there is enough interest in this thread, I'll create a new thread and sticky it for discussion of more specific info and details with suggestions by those interested.

I would likely attend if I didn't have any conflicts. Set a date and time, and you can probably count me in!

I should clarify that if it's a one-time get-together, I'd likely attend. A league would not fit my schedule (although it would be fun if I had the time).

No, not a league format but rather something more informal. I'm not sure if a weekly thing would get enough people, but maybe every two weeks or once a month? All depends on the feedback here so lets hear everyone's thoughts.

Are you thinking about doing the same lake each time or trying different lakes?

Different lakes around this area. Mix it up a little.

My idea would be to have get togethers periodicially at different lakes. Meet at the lake and head out for the evening or day if it's on a weekend. No specific species to target, just head out and have a good time on the lake.

Some lakes to think about would be: Washington, Belle, Erie, Collinwood, Minnie Belle, Stella, and others if suggested. Maybe put them in a hat and pull one out to see what the lake of the week/month is depending on how often we do this.

I don't have much for a boat, but I'd be all for something like this. I know another guy in my neighborhood that probably would be up for it too. If it was on a weekend we could make a camping thing out of it too.

When I started this thread, these were my intentions:

Wednesday Evenings: 6:00 start at the defined launch/lake-8:30 end time until May 9th. 9:00 thereafter

Location: Locations/Species for that location defined at the beginning of the year. A couple of Mystery nights/Species thrown in.

Entry Fee-None

Limit 2 or 3 people per boat-

Species Limits for weigh-in: 20 pan fish (crappies/sunfish combined) /6 bass/3 pike/8 walleye. Any additional numbers/types of species may be kept for personal reasons.

Weigh-In- No weekly standings. Daily weigh-ins recorded and posted on the Internet.

It would be nice to have some sort of an “unofficial format” so we can keep it fun but organized. We especially need to watch the weigh-in limits so we do not have dead fish, dying fish to deal with at night. The other reason to define the lakes prior to the season starting would be to do the work now (deciding on what lakes/species) so when open water comes, all we need to know is what bait to bring and where.

Let me know your thoughts…

I'm open to anything and it should be based off what the majority wants to do. I don't fish bass or panfish so those nights don't interest me much personally.

The thing that bothers me with "weigh-ins" is the trouble it causes at the boat ramps. I've been witness to many a bass league night and it does nothing but disrupt a relaxing fishing evening for those not participating...especially at these smaller lakes around here. They all think they are Roland Martin and $100,000 is on the line and the lake is a mess for the rest of the night. Their boats clog up the ramps because they pile in at a certain time and pile out later at the same time. Courtesy doesn't exist on these nights as those who are not affiliated with their group seem to be imposing on their league night. I don't want to be "one of those guys" and I don't want this to be "one of those leagues". frown.gif

During the work-week doesn't usually work for me personally. But whatever is decided, I'll keep an eye open and if I'm able to make it to an event, I'll let you know.

I would love to see a few things about bass fishing. There is always time for everyone to learn a thing or two.

I say we all get together and rip some mouths.

      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!

      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!
    • monstermoose78
      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.

      Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall
    • Wanderer
      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.
    • mrpike1973
