      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.

we had our first gathering last night at Green lake. It was a blast. We had 7 boats and everybody caught fish!

After the event, we all stood at the boat landing and explaied how each fish was caught. This is to help us each learn more about the lake and how to improve our angling skils. If anybody is interested in joining, we would always enjoy a few more boats to enjoy the time with us. This is all catch and release, a boat with a livewell is not needed.

Yep, It was great fun last night. Great group of guys and more would just make it more fun that is if last night could have been more fun. I may even have to go out and get some new baits to try for my self. The best part was standing around talking about our night on the water. Can't wait for next week. Deitz or Dan maybe we could get a list of phone numbers together so we could contact each other if someone needs a boat seat or something? Will great night see you next Tuesday.

It was a blast. I am looking forward to learning each week how to catch more fish. I hope that this league grows as it could be even more fun and education with more boats. I think we have a great group of guys that have a lot of knowlege to spread amongst everyone. I am looking forward to Chisago as I know a little more about Bass in Chisago than I did about Green. I am going to get my wife out with me next week Should be fun. She may spend more time reading her book and telling me what I am doing wrong grin.gif than casting for big daddy bass. see you all soon.

Hey guys,

It looks like fun. Would it be OK to just show up on the nights I can make it? Unfortunately Tuesday night is LARA baseball night until mid-July.

Thanks

OK, thank you. One last thing- is it one person, two person, or does it matter? I know it's informal, but I don't want to show up with two when you're all alone in the boat! One of these Tuesday nights, the pain is coming! That's OK, I'm used to it. grin.gif Thanks again.

PS- I'd love to hit the St. Croix upper one night too. Smallies are my favorite, but I've only had luck there in the fall. Heading to Green in Kandiyohi this weekend and bringing a sling for my arm!

Well Gentlemen,

I don't know if I am going to make it tonight. It is looking like I might be stuck at work later today than I would like. I am hoping to make it. Dave, If I can make it and on time I will have an open seat in my boat (1850 Crestliner Sportfish). We can play it by ear. If I make it you can jump in with me!

2Fish- I just sent you an e-mail.. We are not on Chisago tonight, but Big Marine as others have stated.

I know our leader Dan said he will not be there tonight. Myself and Jeff will be there as ususal. And I got an e-mail from a new guy who also said he will be fishing alone. He goes by Ham on the boards here.

Should be tough fishing tonight.., High pressure, cold front and this durn blasted wind!!! yuck! Be willing to bet that nobody will be over 70" tonight.

      Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall

      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.
    • mrpike1973
      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      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!!  
    • fowldreams
      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.

      Thanks! Flash "Set the Hook"

      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!!!
