      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 lucked out. We were originally going to go to Ike Waltons on Yellow for the WI opener, but they were booked and next week (the MN opener) was the next opening. We booked a cabin for next week instead. Dodged a wet, rainy bullet. Last year we went on the same weekend. 30's and rainy, yuck.

I would like to say I am, but instead I am sitting in sunny florida on my balcony smoking a cigar, drinking an MGD and reading fishing reports. Unforunately, we will be coming home tomorrow which is ok cause it's hot down here and we have to see the little rascals that have been driving grandma adn grandpa crazy all week........

Let's see, I installed an air conditioner for a family friend, went to the range and burned up some brass while it was pouring out. Went home for lunch, went to Gander, came home and got the gorrila charger installed on my truck and on my boat, cleaned up my firearms from this afternoon,it is 9:53 and I am sitting down for a beer...pretty good saturday........

i was out off and on all day. i live on the southside of the TC...and only got shut out for a couple of hours due to thunder and lightning. no crappies though...uuggh! caught plenty of Sunnys - none of them were anything to write home about.

i did however, get to see a nice domestic dispute when the wife backed the trailer in the water wrong, and the guy strated yelling at his wife. once she had it in the water, she had to take over and get the boat on the trailer...and she did a nice job. priceless...the guy was really upset - very funny.

Take a load old fish house scraps to be disposed, go get the camper out of storage and bring it back to life for opener, pick up some new flouro line, and mow the lawn when it quit raining and hurry to the compost heap before it closes. While the last item is iffy, most of what I did yesterday is contributing to getting on the water. smile.gif

I went out and had a good time. Fish were biting lightly and that made it a bit of a challenge. The mild Minnesota spring zephyr was a tonic for the bones otherwise.

The Grebe

Worked yesterday morning for awhile, came home and put the equipment away, cleaned up and the Mrs. Grebe and I headed up to my sisters on Mille Lacs. I was going to try to take a few casts from shore in a couple of shallow areas, but that was out of the question.

Nice white caps on the west side thats for sure! Everyones hair was horizontal to the deck! Even the fuzz on the bald guys was laying over!

We visited and had a bunch of laughs, hit the casino for a couple of hours and pointed it back home....pretty laid back, thats for sure.

This wind can die down anytime it wants! Sure puts the damper on things...even the driving is an adventure! I wouldn't want to be pulling my boat, the way it threw my Ranger around.

      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!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      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.

      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.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.  
    • IceHawk
      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
