      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.

Well I can tell you where the fish aren't. They deffinatly aint out bittn' on Cedar. My dad and I fished for 4 hours with only one sunny to show for it. It probable didn't help our cause that the cold front came threw just before we got in the water but I was expecting a few to throw in. That's why they call it fishing not catching.

Anyone else have a report for this weekend?

(Not) Good Fishing

Well, We went out on Buffalo fri. night @ 8pm til midnight and yes we found the eyes, and 11" was the biggest and no we didn't keep any. The wind was something of a challenge.

Tried to go to SCHMIDT Sat morning but I see the posts are in the ground again. I would like to know if this is a lawful access or not. Because I think i helped pay for the eyes stocked in the lake w/ my license fees! Sorry just frustrated. We ended putting some time in on pulaski. Worked really hard for rockbass, yeah!

I believe the water line can't be closer than 51 feet from the center of the road. If it is, someone needs to call the sherriff's office or contact Rick Reller at the DNR.

Good luck with that one! Perhaps we should pump some water in it from Green Mountain! smile.gif

I was also on cedar on sat.,noon to 4. My wife pulled in about a 9# carp and a 15" eye, I lost a couple that was it.I was using crawlers, she was using leeches.I really like the structure on that lake, some nice corners to fish.

Schmidt, does not have a legal public access. This came up last summer also about, if it was legal for the posts and a fence. Check DNR for stocking. It may have been used for a rearing pond?

Schmidt Lake is not stocked by the DNR and is has not been used as a rearing pond. It is stocked by the private landowner who gets a permit (most recent in 2006 (1,000 fingerlings).

There is no public access to the lake. Survey maps show that the right of way at that point is 100' (50' from the center). The landowner has the fence placed correctly on the right of way boundary and has the legal right to keep it fenced and posted preventing access across his property. Therefore, anglers are not entitled access to Schmidt Lake.

This seems to be an issue every year. Hopefully, this clears up that subject and saves some people some tickets.

Thanks for the info. I was thinking it would be a nice lake to take my 3 yr. old. it looks protected from the wind. we will find another, no big deal.

No problem for the info. I understand wanting to keep a 3 yr old busy otherwise they lose interest fast. My nieces are the same way. Good luck getting your kid hooked on fishing. We need to recruit more youngsters into the sport.

Happy Fishing!!!

From what I have heard, the schmidt boys don't pay much attention to posted signs when it's hunting season. I know for a fact that they took a deer on posted land 2 years ago. I have no problem with them posting their land, just stay off others posted land!

Fishhawk,

I agree with you. I'm just stating the legal facts about what they can do.

It sure would be nice, if we all would just obey the laws. grin.gif

happy fishing!!!

The birds must be transfering fish from buffalo to pulaski. The last week only little walleyes 10 to 12 inches. I'm going to give the smallies some sore lips this weekend.

Jim - are you saying that birds are catching walleyes out of Buffalo, carrying them to Pulaski, and letting them go?? And the fish are staying alive during this process??

Mo Gator, I'm kidding about the birds. confused.gif Just that lately, I have been small walleyes alot like what has been coming from Buffalo. May have to start keeping the snot rocket pike. (17-21) inch pike just to help thin the population. MMMMMM pickled fish, crackers, beers and a evening fire.

Less then 2 hours for smallie fishing, on Green lake.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
