      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 am not sure exactly what question you are looking to have answered but if you post your question in this forum or the Boats & Motors forum I would venture to say that it would be answered.

I will give you a before image and in a couple of days, i will get a now image. I get alot of compliment's from the guys who were around when they were new. I dropped alot of time and money into her and I will give it to my son's before I sell her. Any ?'s please ask.

Well here she is. She is not that the brand new Ranger, but I call her home. I have dual live well's, bait well. Large rod locker. 12 gal. built in tank and 6 gal aux. tank. Dual bilge pump system and float minder (for keeping her in water for a week at a time). 105hp bored .060 over. Weisco alum. forged pistons. Three Makunie carbs (freshly o/h and synced). New Minkota trolling motor. Power anchor system. new carpet threw out. Humming bird matrix fishing system with GPS and dual display's(one on bow and other on helm). Happy Troller slows down troll. I have custom made back trolling Plexiglas shield’s (large pains)and bracket, but have not installed yet. Also original working retractable mooring tie off ropes (keeps tension when tied to dock, but lets out when larger waves come up). Remote controlled spot light. On board charging system (4 batteries). I know there's more. I also strengthened up transom with diamond plate pre-braked at 90 deg over top of transom. Also "CMC" tilt and trim. Tether switch and all items needed for tournament use. She is my river boat (note scum ring). Have not had her out in a couple of years, but am waiting for warmer weather and will have her out this year. A couple of my buddies have bought new decked out fishing boats and have not hade a need to take her out lately. OOOh. New tires, Power winch, and trailer jack. I love loading onto trailer with low profile and side guides. New windshield from Hanneys (not shown) All for now.

      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!
    • Bigfatbert
      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

      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'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      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,
