      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 is a good running motor just needs a carburetor cleaning due to the fact that it doesnt run great at low speeds other than that it has worked very well for me. I had it on an older 16 ft lund and it pushed it 23 mph. i would like to get 350 for it but give me a call and maybe we can work something out. I could deliver this motor if need be.

I have school untill 2:20 anyways, so that will probably be fine, unless we go to our cabin (just realized we were going) before 5 but I doubt it. I wont be able to call in the morning because I will be at school, so I will just have to call later on friday, unless you want me to call tonight. smirk.gif

yes possibly tonite. My dad will be home any minute now, but we are going to see a 45 minute movie at the I Max theatre, but after that possibly. I just found two 25 horse motors on craigslist for a little bit more money than yours that I am interested in as well. IO still would definitely like to check yours out, because I dont want to get your hopes up of a sale, and say no. I am not saying this for you to lowere the price or anything, but just wanted to tell you that I have some others to look at possibly.

My dad just got home, and tonite will not work. Sorry it will have to be tomorrow after five. We drive basically through farmington to get to our cabin, so we should be able to find time.

I wish we didnt have to go frown.gif

sounds okay does that mean you buy it tomorrow if you like it or does it mean you have to look at those other motors first? youre not going to find a better deal than this because i am just trying to get rid of it. Another thing is that for some reason this motor is a very fast 18 horse because i have had a 15 horse motor on my boat and its not comparable at all so thats another thing to think about.

It is going to have to be sunday or monday now mad.gif

We are leaving now so I cant check it out until sunday. To be honest, I dont even know if my dad is interested in those others, so we will check yours out first, and if it is the right buy, we will get it. Im sorry about that frown.gif

I will be sure to write down your number, and call you, so we can see it on our way back home. ttyl.

I hate to be stubborn, but if this other motor that I saw is still for sale, I am going to check it out. Sorry I didn't call, didn't want to bother you at work. This other motor is a short shaft(Which is what i really need) a bit more power, newer parts, and such, plus its at about the same price, so I hope you can understand my reasoning for not purchasing yours right now. It may be up to a week before I see this other one (that is if it is still for sale) so I will get back to you when I decide. I am still considering yours, but if I don't I wish you good luck, and I think yours will sell pretty fast, because it is a good deal.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated
    • JBMasterAngler
      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,
