      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.

Wade-

I have heard that it appears the ban will be relaxed today. It sounds like campfires at campsites in rings may be allowed along with charcoal.

Here is what I found on the relaxed restrictions.

For St. Louis, Lake and Cook counties, no burning permits shall be issued, however, permits for special exceptions may be issued by the state or federal agency having suppression responsibilities (including prescribed burns).

In addition, recreational fires or campfires are only allowed in a designated fire receptacle designated for such use and associated with a residence, dwelling, campground, or resort. The USFS will be restricting the use of campfires in the BWCAW and other remote campsites until further notice.

I could not find anything on what exactly the park is going to do regarding remote campsites, but it appears like the Superior will not allow campfires on remote sites. (yet)

I called voyagers park and she said you can have camp fires and use charcoal grille only in camp sites that have fire rings. Atleast its better than nothing

That would be everything then. You are only allowed to camp at designated campsites in the Park, and every designated camp site includes a fire ring. So basically that tells me that ever site is good to go. I guess the only thing that would rule out is pulling up on shore somewhere for a shore lunch, but just cruise back to camp and your good to go. I'll be up there too this weekend, but I'm going into Little Eva via the Namakan river. Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources said that the Candian side has lifted the fire restrictions, so I am one happy camper, pun intended! We'll be staying at my brother's cabin on Crane Thursday night and then heading over to customs Friday a.m. So if any of you hear some hooting and hollering coming from East bay tomorrow night, I apologize in advance. smile.gif

      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.

      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.
    • Wanderer
      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.
