      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.

Lake I Wanttobethere of course! the water is clear and the access deep. A variety of fish and the wind is always just right. Bugs are few and there is always a passing boat of gals who need directions. You can get the Twins game on your boat radio and your kids are never cranky. Did I mention the parking at the access with the first spot always open for you? The place where memories are made from, I'm sure you have been there..

I really like Pulaski but the PWC on that lake can get a little out of control. My other choice'd have to be cedar or sugar. laugh.gif

I also like Pulaski, it is such a refreshing lake. I take measures to fish when the jetski/ski boat jocks are asleep or wussed out on the weather. :-) Unless it is clear, sunny and glassy, those pests don't hit the water until 10am usually. :-)

I also like Mink/Somers before the pea soup boils over.

But Clearwater is at the top of my list - it's big enough that even on high-traffic days, everyone can find structure to work for what they want.

well you guys r naming of those big name lakes, ill stick to the little ones... haha... ok starting withjohn lake... great bassin' and defintly got to hit the northerns... Indian is another good lake for bass. dang them bucket mouth were on a feeding frenzy with our wacky worms. Locke was a good contender in consistancy. Nuthing real big for the pike, but did manage to get quite a bunch. These lakes lie north of annadale though... Little lakes sure do have the potential to through out the big ones.

I'll agree wiht that. Biggest crappie came from one of those hundred acre lakes. Like Rock for pannies.

some years back I had a hey days on Locke for crappies with the biggest one weighted in at 1 3/4 lbs it was weighted at the old big lake bait store. also smaked a few eyes out of their. havent been their for 8 years might have to check it out again. Indain has always been good for a great bass bite for me also.

      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 .

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

      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,
