      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.

Sounds like the walleyes are small...how are the bass and northerns doing? I am fishing it for the first time in a few years this evening, any tips?

If you are fishing for bass, they are on the outside milfoil edge at the moment. You can find milfoil on the north, east, and south sides. Good luck!

Thanks, I will give it a shot. I will plan on working plastics or spinnerbaits to cover some ground, any other suggestions.

Plastics or a jig would be good. Don't be afraid to fish with the wind, since I had a more aggressive bite in the wind.

Just largemouth at the moment. The smallies were not biting the last time I was out there on my smallie holes. smile.gif

Worked in and around the south milfoil patch last night...boated 2 nice largemouth and lost a really good one at the side of the boat (all the good ones get away). I couldnt belive there was not northerns there.

Nice! Good to hear there's some LM action again out there this year.

Sluggo - were you using jerkbaits, drop-shot, shakey heads or _____ for the smallies? I was shut down on another local smallie lake the day after opener no matter what I used or how finess-ey I went.

Most of the time I get them on a pig-n-jig. However, elsewhere on other lakes/rivers I usually get them on x-raps, the bigger one's or the husky jerks.

I've got Long Lake out by Spicer for Midwest Sportsman Saturday. That will probably be enough punishment for the weekend. smile.gif

We did as well as to be expected without prefishing it. We didn't have big fish with a five pounder, and only caught four fish. We had 12.6 pounds for our four. I think 20 pounds won it. smile.gif

Sluggomaster, what did you throw the most? I was Green lake, saturday, there was a walleye tourney going also. I fished smallies, had a blast, most on beds. Long lake is a good bass lake, 15yrs ago you could get a limit of walleyes in an hour. I grew-up in New London, my parents now live on Norway lake. Someday I should fish bass tourney there. It is also a great lake for L.M. bass.

I could not get a bite on anything other than a large jig/trailer. It's the same every year. There were 26 boats, which makes that lake fish very small. I hope they take it off the schedule next year, since there is not enough water out there for that many boats. smile.gif

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      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.
