      Minnesota Fishing Report Clubs - ONLY 20 FREE MEMBERSHIPS Per Area - Join Today - FREE   03/08/2018

      Fishing Minnesota has 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. Initially 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 see detailed fishing reports/tips  around your area and will share your detailed fishing report as soon as you join, then 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.

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Dances with Walleye

Trolling Motor Prop replacement


Dances with Walleye

So this weekend I was coming in to a shallow dock... It's kind of a tricky dock... It drops up from 20 feet to 2 feet in the span of about 6 feet. (Great for catching Walleye off the dock... But tricky to bring a Deep V boat into.)

So I'm heading in, with a stiff cross wind... Had to go fast enough to beat the cross wind... Then pull up shallow... Hit Neutral for a second and use reverse to slow me down...

I've done it before, and it's not too bad...

But this time as I brought it in I had the motor a little too shallow... I turned to my buddy (Who is a rookie) and said "When I tell you to, jump up front and grab the dock."

Only he didn't hear the first part over the wind, heard me say really loud "...jump up front and grab the dock."and just jumped all 240 pounds right up front...

Prop came out of the water, and I had no control... I lowered the motor and hit reverse, but it wasn't enough, and my trolling motor prop clicked the dock, and snapped the Fluke off one of the blades.


I've never had to replace a TM prop...

Is it as easy as it looks... Just reverse the screw and the nut, and take it off? Bring it into the store, find the same prop, and I'm all good?

Or are there some somantics I should be warry of?

Thanks in Advance.

Yep, its as easy as it looks.. but do it over land.. not over water.. them wing nuts seem to find a way into the depths if done over water...
