      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.

Anyone been out on Blue this spring? Have any luck with pannies?

I'll be up there all weekend and just wondering if I should fish in that small northern basin or stay on the main lake?

I'll be at the in-laws up on Blue all weekend. I'll probably be on the water quite a bit. Shoot me an email at jsslusarczyk@comcast.net and we can talk. I'd be willing to pull the boat to another lake in the area if you know of a better bite.

Ozzie,

Sorry we didn't hook up. I ended up leaving straight from work and I can't check that email address from work.

Did you end up making it out? I was out most of the weekend on the north basin on Blue. Couldn't find a crappie for the life of me, but caught a bunch of sunnies. Northerns and bass kept hitting my flu-flu/crappie minnow combo, but no crops.

Water temp was 65 degrees in there.

Did you have any luck?

The spot I used to fish(In-Laws have a house there)is on the south end on the side where the ski jump is. Work that shoreline(Esatside) from the shore out past the docks.

Ron,

What did you get on the south end, pannies? Not a whole lot of people fish the south end. I should give it a try.

We have tried the hole right around the ski jump and nothing was in there and we tried along the shore but we didn't connect on anything, but we also didn't stick around to long in that area.............I know in the summer I have done decent in that general area.

Ah yes the ski jump. I've fished that area and was rewarded very nicely. Plain hook and minnow head was the trick last summer.

We fished there in the spring for crappies. Plain #6 gold hook,sinker and bobber is what we used. The livelier the minnow the better. We didn't fish the deep whole. We fished out from the docks one or two down from the ski jump when you are facing the shoreline. I also have favorite walleye and northern spots, but I am not quite ready to give those out yet. wink.gif

Anyone out on Blue this past weekend? Bass fishing was slow for us on Sat. morning. We fished some T rigged stick baits with little luck. Switched to trolling to avoid dealing with the wind. Got one nice 16" walleye, but that was it.

I went out on Monday. Caught a few smaller bass around the pads by the north landing. Caught some bigger bass with a jigworm deeper in front of the landing.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
