      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 don't have mapcreate 7 I have 6 something I am pretty sure that in the instructions they said that I can only use the LEI card reader. But it came with my GPS and mapcreate program. I would call LEI customer service they have been good to me in the past. Phil

you'll need the LEI card reader.

I thought it came with MapCreate?

Bought it from scheels and they said lei wouldnt allow it to be sold with the reader until may 4 but that I could go get a card reader/writer at best buy and that would work.

Well they are 100 percent wrong as you have learned.

You must initially use an LEI branded memory card reader/writer for MapCreate 7 to work properly.

Well, with version 6.3 (not sure about 7) there is a way to make maps without the LEI reader. I have made them using the MMC reader built into my computer.

First, you need borrow an LEI reader. Initialize your first card, this unlocks the software and you can unplug the LEI card reader an use your own. Put a "different" card (one that you haven't initialized with the software) into your other non-LEI card reader, run the create map command on the software, leave the Save As window open. Open windows explorer, then browse to the C:\Program Files\LEI\MapCreateUSAHuntTopo6.3\Res folder and get the Untitled.at5 file. Copy that file over to the card that's in your non-LEI reader (rename it if you want). It will work in version 6.3, haven't tried it in 7.

      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

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.

      Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.

      We made a day trip a couple of Sundays ago. Fished from about 9:30 to 3:30 and my kid caught 2 walleye- 21" & 25" with a tag. In the past two winters I've made a total of 3 day trips and have a total of 10 walleye from 19-25 inches. I think the numbers may not be a may, but the quality is great. Very similar to the late 90's not as many fish, but great size.

      no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.
