      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.

Who's the Jerk?!

Recommended Posts

Royal Dutchman

Who's the jerk that ripped on Gail for not having the river open?!

The ignorance of some people just leaves me shaking my head. The one person that's doing the most to keep us all informed, and she get's crap about controling a natural phenomenon? The freakin' weatherman can't get it right more than 24 hrs. ahead and we're supposed to tell you 2 or 3 weeks ahead to the day? Get real.

Probably one of the same guys that call us demanding to know what day it will be open and what day would be the best fishing and if we would guarantee him fish. If your looking for a guarantee of fish it tells me that you are used to not catching fish and are probably the guy raving at the ramp about "no fish in this #$%#&@*! river" when I've just hit 100 fish in 4 or 5 hours.

We always say that the A-hole factor is about 1 in 1000 with our fisherman customers, and that is so much better than any other business I know, but this guy gets the Golden A-hole Award from me!

Tell Gail you're sorry for being stupid and maybe the River Gods will smile on you again. Otherwise I hope someone pours gas on your bait and your boat springs a leak.

To end on a positive note, this all say it together:

THANK YOU GAIL!

Gail:

I hope the jerk doens't make you think we are all that way. I for one think you're special and appreciate what you have done for me and the boyz when we come up there fishing (note fishing not catching) even if our tape measures are a little off. So Gail THANK YOU for the wonderful job you do for us cit-idiots and your hospitality.

Gail and Doug are great on the way they pass on information to us less fortunate, the reason I fish is to get away from the real world, its sad some dumb a$$ cant get that. So Clementson and R/D keep up the good work, your second to none to me and I've never even stayed at either of your locations cool.giflaugh.gifcool.gif

All the effort Gail, dutchman have done to keep us informed is greatly appreciated by many. Far more people rely on the info than we could know. Gail I will be seeing you tomorow night.

It would be very hard to plan a trip without local reports.I know I am very grateful.

There are many options for those who just can't wait. My group will be starting our trip tomorrow. Boats loaded with ice gear. Looks like we will be putting in at Pelland or fishing down river on the ice. Maybe even a trip up to the lake is in order.

I would also like to thank Gail, Doug, and Marilyn for all their effort as well as their continued pleasant personalities. It seems its hard to find that as much anymore and customer service like that keeps people coming back. Don't think it goes unnoticed...

I can't belive that someone would give them a hard time. They don't have to keep everyone informed on the condition of the river, but they do and should be thanked.

Agreed, without the Royal Dutchman and Clementson's reports we'd all be driving up checking on a daily basis. Granted it's only 2 hours for me... wink.gif

Yeah Northlander, I too am wondering where my call was. I just spoke to BDR two weeks ago and he stated he wasn't coming up this year... He's trying to go incognito... grin.gif

Thanks again Gail, the reports are great, don't let the overly anxious one's spoil the excitement!!

Hey thanks guys, it sure makes the trips worth it. The last couple weeks our lives got turned upside down and Doug has been great with you guys on this site, a BIG thanks to you! I couldn't ask for a better neighbor!

Art checked river today and tonight we got a call from a friend that just back from Birchdale area and told us the open water has reached Manitou! I'll be posting more pics tomorrow and course checking again! It's getting exciting now!

Thanks again & Take Care

The updates and postings are more then helpfull to a true outdoors person. These bad apples (to say) are the reason be it hunting, guns in general, fishing, and almost everything outdoor are giving outdoor enthusis such a bad rep. Its a wonder why funding and children are struggling to get into these wonderful activites.

If anybody wants to be guarnteed perfect conditions and fish jumping into the boat would be better off buying them at the store and leave the unperdictable fishing to the sportsman. You guys on the border are doing a great job-Thanks.

      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.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      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!
