      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.

Not many guys getting out. Some guys are getting Coho and Lakers off of PP. Surprisingly shallow. Must be hitting all the smelt that are still in.

I wish I had today off though.

Now watch opener will be 50 and raining with 30 mph winds from the N/E.

You guys should load up the boat and come this way. In lake michigan right on the border of IL and WI we are getting limits of cohos in no time at all. on sat we got 40 fish in an hour and a half. The limit for everyone on board including the captain and myself. These fish are also much bigger than they are in Superior with the biggest right now being about 6# and averaging between 3 and 4. Just thought I would give you guys the heads up if any of you can or want to make it down.

not a whole lot of smog where we fish it is a ways from the city. but I did get out casting on the breakwall myself the other day for a couple hours and got 18 cohos up to 6 pounds something that I know for a fact you aren't going to do on your big lake. We have also been limiting out for several weeks now. We left the dock at 5:10 this morning and were back at the dock by 6:00 with 33 nice silver buggers. They are still there to be had so you guys can keep your lakers I like my way better.

I used to fish out of Waukegan every weekend when I lived down there The coho's are a lot bigger down there than the ones up here. As I remember, May was the hottest month down there trolling out in front of the Com-Ed plant with alot of cohos and BIG browns.

I used to fish the same area as JarJar when I was stationed at Great Lakes. They might be bigger, but the water is alot cleaner and fish in Superior taste different(better).

      Darn you guys!!   How am I supposed to stay at work and pretend to be interested now? There's nothing better than bow hunting turkeys in the spring after a long winter!

      Hey all just a reminder you will need a new license March 1!! Well it looks like we should be ice fishing for another month or more. There is some coming, so if you need to get you house off the lake it might be wise do it now. bites: green crappies, little elk gills sorting but you will catch them eaters, skogman has good from numbers of gills and crappies, and Lori lake for crappies. the turkey fever is starting to set in for me

      Hi @Rick, I'm also looking to take my family out this weekend. I  have a 3/4 ton with a 8x24 ice castle. Was looking at Shields or German. Is it pretty safe with my rig? I know some of these smaller lakes are aerated and can have some soft spots. Just want to be extra safe with the family. Also, the fishing been ok down there? Thanks in advance! Justin

      Hey @jlang_04, i'm looking to take my kids down that area and was curious how's the ice for a 3/4 ton with a ice castle 8x24. I'm sure the ice is thick enough but I also know some lakes are aerated or have current and the ice can be soft in some spots. So I just want to be safe with my family. Also, how's the fishing down there?  Thanks, Justin

      Thanks guys.

      Up until about seven or eight years ago we were on Head-o-lakes bay. Minimal to no Rustys. Just the old school guys with the big blue boxer-mit claws. We were seeing rounded gobies.  We're on Frazer now. Wow! It's indescribable how many of those buggers there are. We've been trying to do our part by having frequent crawfish boils. Haven't made a dent but fun and tasty to try.

      will definitely be hunting turkeys again this year.  Love chasing these birds. Intend to go the archery route this year for the first time.  I have 2 kids that always are excited every year, until a couple of early mornings wain thier enthusiasm!  Figuring archery will allow me go on those days the kids dont want to wake up and I think I have something figured out.  Hope my skills will be up to the challenge.

      I've had very good luck with them also. Always pick some up before heading out on the lake.

      Was thinking about heading up the shore for some open water fishing. Was just wondering if their is alot of ice floating around and if not wat kind of wind would make it difficult to fish from shore? Thanks
