      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.

This weather is making me crazy! I am coming up Sunday morning staying through Wednesday in I-Falls and this dang river is going to drive me nuts! I have had reservations for over a month hopeing I would have some good weather and good fishing....but I would be satisfied with just good fishing but is sounds like neither is going to happen. I wish Birchdale was open!

I hear ya Milkdud! We're supposed to leave tomorrow as well, but I think we'll wait. My fishing partner & I are both lucky in that we can leave on a very short notice. This year is a perfect example of why we don't make reservations at the resorts close to Birchdale. Love Clementson, and Royal Dutchman, but they're generally booked at least 1 week in advance, often more. Tough at the motels in town also. We started staying at various resorts on Wheeler's Point about 3 years ago. It adds about 1/2 hour to your travels, but most resorts have openings at the drop of a hat. Let's hope it opens up soon, and stays realtively mud-free! We'll probably head up next Wed.-Thurs., but it depends on Mother Nature. Good Luck, post a report when you return.

Royal Dutchman

Just got back from Birchdale and feel good about what I saw.

Appears to be open to about 100 yds. below the big rock in the middle above the ramp. There was a boat going from side to side there checking for depth. I was trying to send him a telepathic message where to fish and he settled in where I told him. Glad that worked.

Open water down the US side to the ramp. Hope it widens a bit tonight. Good wet/soft spot down the middle that I hope breaks out tonight.

      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!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
