      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.

I heard the sirens last night while coaching a soccer game in Biwabik and wondered what could be going in a little town.

Sounds like they found him safe a sound. Not many details right now but he is safe.

Great to hear, I can see how easily this could happen.

My 4 year old sometimes starts to follow the dog around in the woods and gets "turned around", even in our small woods.

I'll bet the family is beyond relief.

Six-year-old Jacob Lee Lagerquist was found alive and well this afternoon about three-quarters of a mile north of his house on St. Louis County Highway 4 after being missing for 21 hours.

Lagerquist was found in the woods at about 3:30 p.m. by a volunteer from nearby Biwabik.

Jacob was quickly reunited with his parents and then was checked by paramedics but appeared fine.

Minutes later Ted Lagerquist carried Jacob in his arms to the end of the family’s driveway to meet with reporters.

It was the happy ending that everyone was hoping for but not even the father was expecting.

“Praise the lord!’’ Ted Lagerquist said. “I expected the worst. God bless everybody… It’s been a tough 24 hours for us.’’

Jacob said he spent the night “out in the woods. I was sleeping out there,’’ the six year old told reporters. Search officials said temperatures dropped to about 45 degrees overnight and that hypothermia and exposure were a concern.

Jacob was found by Tim Baldonado of Biwabik Township, a volunteer who has a child the same age as Jacob. He was searching in a group of 10 volunteers and first saw the boy hugging a small tree about 25 feet away.

“He was standing next to a tree. I was calling his name, and he called ‘Mommy’,’’ Baldonado said. “He asked me if I knew his mom and his dad.’’

Baldonado said he hugged the boy and quickly carried him out to a nearby road. The boy was found about 25 feet off a road, with dense underbrush in between.

More than 100 people had been looking for Lagerquist since he went missing just after 6 p.m. Monday night. The family lives about seven miles south of Biwabik, or about 60 miles north of Duluth.

Searchers had been combing through swamps, thick woods and dense underbrush.

“You have thick areas, open areas, rivers and swamps. And the swamps are horrendous,’’ St. Louis County Sheriff Ross Litman said just hours before the boy was found.

Heather Kothbauer of Superior, Jacob’s cousin, joined the search with her husband, Jeff, early Tuesday. She said the family was thankful for the outpouring of support.

“He’s an outgoing, curious, 6-year-old boy,’’ she said. “The number of searchers is just great.’’

Jacob lives with his parents, Ted and Missy Lagerquist, a younger sister, and Ted Lagerquist’s parents.

Josh Larson, who lives about five miles from the Lagerquists, joined the search about noon.

“I have a lot of nephews the same age,” Larson said. He and seven other searchers spaced themselves 30 feet apart and walked about a mile.

“There were lots of little ponds, lots of old junk cars back there — lots of places he could be,” said Larson, who is taller than six feet, was wet to his knees.

Thank God.

I hate it when "missing person" is in the post title. We're still missing our friend that I posted about on the hunting forum. frown.gif This is the third one I know about since joining HSO and the first to be found safe.

Wow, I guess me and Junior will be having a little more of a serious talk tonight about following the dog into the woods. To see that was the reason he went missing sent a little chill down my spine.

My brother and I as kids went into the woods one spring because we could hear frogs. I was 6, he was 4. We spent a good part of the day chasing frogs. Came home after several hours to find the neighbors and the St Louis Co. Sheriff at our house grin.gif. We got our (Contact Us Please) kicked by my old man in front of the sheriff. This was the early 1970's when parents could still do that

      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.
    • Mark
      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.  
    • IceHawk
      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any. 
    • mrpike1973
      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
