      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.

Red Power Pro

Hey, Has anyone tried using the red power pro braided line on Mille Lacs? (Or any of the red lines for that matter). I've got half a mind to give it a try.

I was using red cajun mono on my bobber rig on monday and boated more than the other 3 in the boat. Worked great for me.

All the feedback I've heard from muskie fisherman regarding red Power Pro is that it bleeds. If you use it, expect your hands to be pink for awhile. Also, avoid wearing light colored clothing unless you're looking for the pink tie-dye look.

i caught a rod & reel on saturday that looked like it had been underwater since fall or longer. it had a flourescent green line like ive never seen. i wonder if it is the line you are talking about? the rod is a shakespear graphite, 6'6"-medium action 2 piece with a crooked end eye, and the reel is a 3 bearing shimano. i also caught a crawdad. my fishing buddy caught a rock...it was about the size of a tennis ball and he brought it up.

regards,

MNtuff,

Did your buddy get the rock by Shaws reef or Doe Island? I have caught rocks in that area before when I was ice fishing. I also have lost a couple of polls (with kids in boat) like you stated on Doe island reef when I was trolling. I never had green line before though.

shackbash,

it was in the SSW part near spirit island... im wondering if the flourescent green line is power pro? i use fireline mainly and im not sure about using flourescent line. other than that, its cleaned up but i have to take it apart and grease/oil it, then it will be useable.

regards,

Just received the 100lb Power pro Phantom Red and put it on my trolling rod(Muskie). It did leave some red dust when spolling it onto the rod and real.I have used the dark green Tuff line XP for a very long time and have not had an issue with that. I will report my findings after I get to use it. I would assume I'm going to get some bleeding as described.

      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!!!

      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      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.

      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.
