Fishing Report Clubs

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 are also providing 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 to quality fishing reports provided in the club and regular forum. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course.

If you want fishing reports around your area, I wouldn't wait, 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 can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them.

  • Type the @ symbol
  • type in a couple "lowercase" letters
  • pause
  • then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for.

You can play a game so members can see how it works.

If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going.

Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses.

This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch

@Scott K

@Corey Bechtold

@Matt Johnson


@eyeguy 54




@Cliff Wagenbach

When you are the father you take your little girl to the Memorial day parade....but in my case...

This is what fathers do on Memorial day. Watch their baby girl playing a flute in the Marching band on Memorial day. That and remembering my father and grandfathers who fought n WW1 and the cold war defending our freedoms. And all the others who defended the liberty and way of life we enjoy today.

Annabelle is in the front row with the flute closest to the camera.

Have a great Memorial day and if you choose to take a second, honor a hero in your family, your neighborhood and your world.

2003-miss-gathering1.thumb.jpg.f38ab6bfeOur wish is to work out the tough bugs in your new Fishing Minnesota forum, there will always be some bugs and we want to have the ones that make it tough to sign-in worked out. Please use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page if you cannot sign-in. We will help you. Some of that issue was operator error...mine.

We are committed to moving ahead with the new forum because of the possibilities it offers users here, even with a few folks having a difficulty signing-in with the new forum software. There is no perpetual engine in the world. However, there are lots of eternal brakes.

We are pleased that a vast majority have no issues and like the new forums and the potential it represents. More good things are coming and they will come in measured steps. We went with the new forums because of the ability to enhance your experience in steps if you want to do more than just read the forums. Check this forum out on mobile, really check it out's pretty slick.

You may 'want to do do more than look, if 'you can, show us the sharing person you are. Perhaps you share outdoor pursuits and passions. We want to see you doing what you love most. You will be richer in the end than a prince, if you are a friend. A friend we will always love is in the pic on the left. A kind and generous friend.

I will end this with a quote by Robert Louis Stevenson:
"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seed that you plant"


Well ladies and gentleman, seeing as no one else has started their own blog and only one other person has updated their status here, I will kick it off.

As most of you know we changed over to a new forum. What most of you don't know is that it is a radically different forum.

Before we get ahead of ourselves, go ahead and enjoy the new, albeit slower forum (we're working on that). Once you get used to it, it will seem very similar to the old forum with a few interesting quirks.


As 'you post good information' you may be pleasantly surprised that you are being noticed and people actually let you know they 'like your post'. Yes, there is a 'Like This' button in bottom right of your post. Note: you can't see it in your own post if you are logged in.

You might also notice as more folks start to like your posts you develop a following that just keeps growing. That's because all one needs to do is click on your name and 'follow you' so they can see all of the great info you post. A nice benefit is that a lot of those folks who follow you will also see your posts with questions. Most are willing to share great info with you because they already know you are a generous soul because they are following you.

Oh wait, there's more....but we will save that for another post. The new forums are plenty to digest for the time being. You can find a lot more on your own if you want.
