      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 am assuming its going to be a low water year, but how low??

seaner,

I just got home from Kab. I was up helping my mother in law with some chores. I put my boat in the water...it was tight but it is in and tied to the inside of the outer dock. Many docks are high and dry but these are the private ones that only stick out from shore 20-30 ft. I think at this time last year it was about a foot deeper than it is now. What we need is some rain.

Most resorts on Kab have crib style docks that are still 5-6ft out of the water. A few resorts have large floating dock systems that go up and down with the water level. Even when the water level is low you can still dock a large quantity of boats. Have a great opener guys!!

Sam will be up on wednesday. Joan is her same old self (full of energy with too much to do and not enough time to do it) wink.gif. All the cabins are ready for opener. Water is up over the end of the ramp now coming up an inch or so a day. I put my TYEE in on sat, I must admit it was a little interesting but it was not too bad. There have been a lot of changes/improvements to the place. Rick O. and Joan's brother took down some questionable trees and built a driveway down to cabin 1 (that is the big cabin behind the office). 1, 2, and 4 all have new decks as well as a new (used) cabin at the top of the hill by the garage. I will be up most weekends so I will catch you either coming or going.

I just backed my trailer off the ramp and let it sink in the muck and then pushed the boat off and Joan sat on the outside dock and caught it. Pulling it out would be a little harder with the level of the water right now but given some more time it will be coming up at about an inch per day. Just plan on taking turns cranking the winch when loading would be the worst case scenario. Outside dock in front of 3 is completely open for guest boats this season. Just remember low water level years are very good for walleye reproduction. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I'll have to warn her! You must be renting a couple of cabin's at least, eh? Maybe you can play Sam at cribbage for the bill? Best two out of three? I will be posting our fishing results after opener. I am trying some new (to me) spots this year that are out of the ordinary. I may get skunked but I just hate crowds.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      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!!!
