      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.

Gander Mountain TecH2O jacket and bibs. Have had it for several years and love it. It is not extremely lightweight, but is 100% waterproof and breathable.

I like the lite weight Frogg Toggs and if it gets heavy then Gander Mountain TecH2O jacket is nice. I usually just use the Frogg Togg pants as I am to short to find a pair of bibs that fit and don't look like a baby's sleeper on me grin.gif

The Frogg Togg's are great. Lightweight, and they breath very well! And you really can't beat the price.

My vote goes for the Cabelas Gore-Tex. 100% waterproff, windproof and breathable. They are a bit spendy ($400) but they will last a lifetime. Get them slightly bigger than you want and they will double for winter outerwear as well.

I own the Cabela's goretex also. Problem is when it's over 70 degree's the frog togg's are more comfortable. I do love Goretex, but more in spring/fall. Just my experience.

I just bought the Gander Mountain Tech20 rain gear. I fished this past weekend on Devils Lake in 35MPH wind and rain/snow. I stayed dry and warm. It seems to be a bit heavy, but I like it none the less. Also, Gander is giving a $20 gift card for every $100 you spend on "Guide Series" apparel. So I bought a shirt and got $40 bucks in gift cards.

Guide Series TechH2O is my recomendation. If you watch there ads they sometimes go on sale and get them at a great price. Here is what I use mine for.

-fishing (soft water)

-hunting

-ice fishing

-snowmobiling, yes snowmobiling.

-and a good wind block!!!

Just an all around great investment PERIOD!!! There in the boat more then the fishing net.

Good luck,

mr

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      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.
