      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.

Poor refs

Recommended Posts

What a sad bunch of refs. They could not control the kindergardan class. How much times did they favor the Ducks and let them get away with anything.

Its to bad Boogard didnt play more to stop the foolishness. The refs are lucky no one was hurt bad.

The Wild beat the pants of the Ducks tonight and took them to school.

I agree the refs let it get that way but you've got to blame the ducks also. There is a differnce between chippy and flat out cheap. Kunitz pulls Burns hair in game 3, I mean what is that? Then at the end of this one Hall is in a straight up fair fight in which their guy dropped the gloves first and one of the Ducks skates the length of the ice to be the third man in. Add to that as this is going on May sucker punches Johnson. May had also punched Boogaard earlier with no call but of course won't drop the gloves. May could fight back in the day but is washed up now.

None of the ducks will drop them with Boogard....they all saw him break Fedoruk's face earlier in the year.

Harvey Lee,

What time of the year is Zebra hunting start?

I could have bagged three of those (Contact Us Please) tonight!

I wish that I was 50lbs lighter and 20 years younger so I could have been.................Oh sorry guys I drifted off to sleep there and was dreaming.

But them (Contact Us Please) refs must have been brothers of Stevie Wonder, oh if they could only sing! Both of those Duck players better be suspended for the remainder of the series!

We could have a Wild game feed with Zebras and Ducks!

GO WILD

Fish On!!!

lots of bad calls last night. Veilleux going to the penalty box after he was punched in the side of the face. Radivojevic- goal not allowed for his skate in the crease (you cant call that anymore anymore). Brad May and Thornton both should be suspended for a few games especially May for the sucker punch. Don't remember who layed the check from behind on Walz, horrible referring last night.

Well there was alot of bad calls last night, its a good thing it didnt cost us the game in the end, But lets hope johnson is ok! I think the wild won the game last night because they were more aggressive, getting in their goalies face, and protecting backstrom more, in which they werent doing in the first three games. I think the wild just got under their skin after finishing their checks more and playing a little rougher, and the ducks got frustrated and played poorly! It makes for a fun game to watch when the refs swallow their whistles, but they need to do it evenly, and call some of the severe shots, or it will get out of hand. I think the new refs wont let this happen in game 5, and there is to much on the line for the wild to go out and look for revenge. There should be a couple game suspensions after last nights game, and Im sure some fines handed out. I think burns is going to be fun to watch this guy has some guts, and some good swings also!

I will leave the refs alone for now cause everyone else has pointed out what they did wrong..As for the Wild, they have found a way to get to the ducks and beat them...Now it got out of hand last night but I think the Wild have a great chance now to step up and win this series if they keep playing tough and going to the net. When the ducks get upset they are useless...The Wild play great when things get tough...The next game will be good and I know the commissioner will be watching the reffering also....Which should keep things in control and the Wild will know what to do to win...Now they need to do it.

They've been getting screwed all series (all season for that matter) with calls but last night was just ridiculous. Hopefully Johnnson is ok and maybe all of that cheap, cowardly Ducks play and the one-sided officiating will just pump the Wild up even more.

May should be hoping he gets suspended, otherwise the Boogeyman will be his best friend in game 5... grin.gif.

Maybe it would be better if May ran into the boogie man instead of a longer suspension grin.gif

I hear that!

Suspensions of marginal players only do so much, Brad May for a lost Kim Johannson is not equal. Power plays as a result of antagonistic play, which Boogaard excels at drawing, are the key. Plus, I wouldn't mind seeing Boogey lay down the law, if you will!

I agree the refs let it get out of hand but its about time the wild stepped up and punched the ducks in the mouth. The Ducks were pretty rattled by the 3rd. I hope the wild open Game 5 the same way.

      First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there.  I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break  apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not  Good luck in your search.

      this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area?

      When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.

      +1 here.  I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy.  Not yet anyway.  The more days I can get in, the better.  And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird.  Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe?  I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow.  Hoping two times is a charm.

      I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!

      I hear the panfish are kicking it up a bit? Any word out there?
    • Alex wilhelmi
      awesome feedback! thank you so much for the info! Ill get up ther next year, i dont want to keep any i just want to catch some nice eyes and northern.....hell, whatever! ive been in a sleeper 5 times on LOW and we only had one real good trip. upper red lake once in a sleeper caught 3 eyes in 3 days. i dont mind if i catch one or two fish, its all about the experience for me on the big water. but the girlfriend is a hard one to convince at times for a return trip if the fishing is slow. were headed to fairbault this weekend, i hope we get into something. thanks again guys! ill post a report on our trip. good luck on the ice!

      Well who else is going after long beards this spring? I was drawn for season B again no surprise. There were surplus tags left as there were last couple years.  Really like the new approach to not having to apply for the later seasons spreads the hunters out and gives guys like me the opportunity to get after them early   Been out doing some scouting and been seeing some big wintering flocks one I was glassing other day had over 60 birds in it! They have really been working over the picked corn lately.  Oh cant wait to hear the first gobble of the year

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff
