      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.

Check out this link it shows how easily your can get hacked with your online transactions. Keep your Anti Virus upto date and be very cautious about what you install on your PC. And never go to a site listed in an email and give any info about any of your banking type of accounts or any personal info for that matter.

What does this have to do with open water fishing?

It may not have anything to do with open water fishing, but it is a good reminder to those who shop online. Maybe you are getting ready to make a big purchase of new fishing equipment from one of the major online outdoor retailers and you could use a reminder to make sure you have updated your antivirus software. Just someone trying to help out.

I put it in this forum for visibility. And like Polarsusd81 said it's something that we all need to think about every now and then.

If it doesn't pertain to you disregard it and don't read it.

I got that link yesterday and the best I can figure why it won't work is that it is out of date.

I just checked it again. It worked but I had to refresh the page to get it to play. Not sure what is up with that. The video is named "Robbing your Nest Egg".

I use macs at home and work -- I am so lucky, nobody wastes their time on Mac viruses.

YET, just remember that these hackers are hitting the machines that are out there more than others, meaning as soon as they figure out that Mac's are underprotected and are there just as much as the normal pc, you will be a target. I hope you have some plans of back up.

Having spent my entire career in the Computer Systems Development (40) industry I can only say: If the hackers and creators of viruses would put their time and energy into productive development efforts they would be satisfied and financially rewarded far better than the life they are living.

It is not only virus, spyware and malware that are the problems. The problem could be a site you are connected to. If a site gets hacked you can be redirected from a secure site a non secure site(be sure that you always at a https:// not an http:// when doing anykind of online ordering.

Also don't go to any site that you are referred to be an email and give out any kind of personal info. I have seen a couple of pretty real looking sites that some of our staff got referred to.

      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.
