      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.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Spring Break Pics!

Recommended Posts

tearin' lips

While almost everyone else I know was enjoying a sand beach or a nightclub in Mexico or the Caribbean. I ventured "up north" to spend some quality time with the family and of course on the ice. I figured I would post a few pics of our adventures. There will be more pictures coming as soon as I can scan my 35mm pics onto my flash drive. Also about 1/2 the pics turned out sideways...I edited them on photobucket so they were oriented properly, but they insisted on being sideways on the post confused.giffrown.gif So I guess you guys will just have to tilt your head or something confused.gif Enjoy!!

Day One, Crow Lake and my buddy with a nice 6 lb. laker


My buddy with a nice nine pounder


Me with another gorgeous laker.


Here's one from the next day. We were on Lake of the Woods fishing out of Zippel Bay. Fishing was terrible during the day, but the evening bite was really good, with alot of nice 15"-17" fish.


My buddy with a nice Water Wolf.


40 incj bruiser.


Slabs, What a day...All the big fish in the pics went back that day. We had a handfull 15"+ with the biggest one 15.5"


A nice 15" and a 13".



Stay tuned for more pics as soon as I can get my 35mm scanned!!

Superblack, You could say that we got into a few fish. There were many days of catching and releasing, only a few did we bring fish back. If wanted to we could've brought back a limit on everyday, but its fun just to get up there, enjoy the scenery and spend quality time with friends and family.

Cedarnarrows guy.

Being stuck down here in Duluth going to school. I probably will not make it up there until open water, most likely in May/June. If the ice stays 'till Easter I will go then, but I am not sure with the gorgeous weather we are is going fast down here in Duluth. We'll have to meet up there this summer and chase some lakers/muskie/bass whatever, just as long as we are fishing!! grin.gif

Take Care All and Good Luck Fishing!!

Tearin', nice pics that really show the Rainy smorgasboard of fishing. You never know what's coming out of the hole.

Your picture of that pike didn't do it justice. I was just at a buddies place yesterday and hey got his new 41" pike mount back and it is huge (keep your hands inside the boat at all times).

Looking forward to more pics.

Hey great pics Tearin'. Looks like you had a blast!!! I'm not sure if I'm heading up this year but I always enjoy reading your posts. I'm heading the opposite direction tomorrow and going Largemouth and crappie fishing in Mississippi. Temps are suppose to be in the 80's so it should be good.

Take care and Keep the pics coming.

      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!

      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.

      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.
