      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.

Recommended Posts

Where to start.My head is still spinning.

OK I got it,bagged work at 3 bells .My son and Dad & I hit my hole for what I thought would be good ,but so so.

crappies004.jpg

I was soooooo wrong! :lol:

We caught 100's of fish.

crappies034-1.jpg

The bass were coming..Do I love those fighters,my son does too!

The water was 50 on the nuts and we were work 2-4 feet of water.

You can tell that the water is warming,look at how black the males are getting.

crappies011.jpg

T.H.E. jig was working really well.

Too well ,I caught another bass after I do not know how many I reared on & snapped off.I know I should have retied ,but I had more.

Well anyway I switched to loby's Drag-n Mags & never skipped a beat.

crappies017.jpg

They inhaled that plastic like no tommorow.Like it was there last meal.

I strapped on the Drag-n Mag onto a 32nd oz jig that was white with orange eyes and a collar.

crappies012.jpg

I know the 1st one caught 30 fish and was in the mood for more ,but like earlier I had more & a pike snipped it off.

Well I retied in about 45 seconds and went back to drilling them again.

To be honest I'm glad I sent them home with the 20 we kept &as my arms hurt & this post is draning what I have left.Sure is nice to not have to clean fish.

had to leave a few for seed anyway.

crappies030.jpg

I had Sunday open yet & I asked if those two giggling girls wanted some more abuse.I think you know the answer to that.

I also got a firm handshake and a wink from pops,so cool.

As we drove back across the lake I looked back to say goodnight , this is what she said back.

See ya soon!

yup my dad too.

He used to be one heck of a fisherman & hunter ,but the stroke did him in so now I really try to cater to him & do all I can to get him in the fish.

I'll be going back in there in the after noon tommorow.

I have another small lake that has monster gills in it that I'm going to see if they are in yet.

It's loaded with springs so it takes a bit more to warm up.

I'll come back to make the posts.

I think I'll start a new thread called Bulls& Slabs.

good luck finding some quality fish!

Those bulls just started so we will have a few days of banging until openers.

Too bad you are busy or we could go tommorow for those bulls.

I do not have a date for tommorow so I'll be home tying should someone pull up with that pro-v.

Here's some parting shots at the end of the day.

That cold front moved them out to some deeper water 6-8 FOW.

I figured as much and we did find us some,but not as many.

Here's my son David with a few he caught.

      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 .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated
    • JBMasterAngler
      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. 
    • IceHawk
      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,
