      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 don't know much about the guy, he might be a great addition to the team, but don't you thing we have enough safeties on the team? Do you think they are setting up for a trade or something?

Before we signed Doss every mock had us taking Landry(safety.LSU). I think that we signed Doss so we can trade down several spots and pick up an extra pick from whomever we trade with. I think our team has too many needs for us to trade up because it would cost us too many picks. If we trade down 5 spots we can pick up an extra late second or third round pick.

There are a lot of trade rumors going on right now with the Vikings. Some say we'll trade our pick to NE for their two first round picks. That way NE can get Landry and we can address the wr and db positions in the first round. Probably not going to happen though. Another rumor is trading with Buffalo and getting their first and second round picks. Buffalo is interested in AP. Will it happen? Only God knows. Nobody can predict the NFL draft.

Why wouldn't a guy want to return to a Super Bowl-winning team? Something's not right.

He had an ACL problem last year and missed a bunch of games , maybe him leaving wasn't an option . On the other hand , did anybody hear Sludge & Hawk interview B-Wade this morning . Sounds like a good guy and has his head in the right spot . Says he is a Hines Ward type of reciever . Was honest about his short commings , which is nice for a change . Lastly , won't Doss have to fight for a spot ?

They better be sure about Doss if this means they are trading down or passing on Landry. All accounts are this guy is one of the best safeties to come out in the past few years.

They signed Doss for one million for one year. It's probably just a competition thing because that's what Childress likes. It could just be a smokescreen or a move to get someone to trade up to our pick to get Landry. I wouldn't mind having Landry in purple.

You have Tank Williams coming back this year too. I dont think safety is one of the top 2 needs for this team.

Wonder if any of them might be tried at cornerback. I think our nickel and dime coverages should have some good players in the game with this kind of depth. One could play up on the line to cover the short stuff or blitz.

I don't mind this pickup at all. Greg Blue, shoulder, Rondell Whitiker, arm, and Tank Williams knee .. still might have some problems. This is a move for depth, he held his starting job for 4 years before getting hurt last year. I hear he's a hard hitter, but could be a little better in pass coverage. Unless they guarenteed his contract,They could still cut him before the start of next season if his knee is too messed up still. nothing lost.

I personally like this move. Mike Doss was a beast when he played at THE Ohio State.

      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.
