      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Since having a few folks from different sites wanting me to keep the smaller lakes from being overfished I'll be making all of my post with funny named lakes.

Should you want some inside info I can be emailed & I'll do what I can to help you.

palisade1kid@yahoo.com

I just want to be helpfull and maybe make a few fishing & hunting friends along the way.

Appearently I have been ruffing up some feathurs and that was never my intent.

So from now on you'll see me fishing Lard with is where the crisco river flows into.The bass have been busy eating the frys by the way.Then there will Happy go lucky which is right over by nofish lake.

The info will be real with only the names protected to serve

the lake home owners.

This message will not self destruct & that fat lady is dead.

Is Nofish lake named after me?

Hopefully no one goes looking for these lakes on the Lakefinder on the DNR website. It might start leading people astray.

Well, Im hoping that before I come up to that one lake up there in August, you might be able to help point me in the right direction for all them dogfish. You know, I don't want to name that lake, or that fish. This forum isn't about fish.

Thanks for the great help on the ATV's! cool.gif

Ck,

Should we just code all the lakes so that no one knows what we are talking about or maybe we should all just give up fishing? NOT

I'm just trying to appease everyone.I've got sponsers&potential sponser watching me.

If I continuelessly get into the type of banter that has been going on,well it's not good for me soooooo.

I do not know how else to make a post.

I'm fishing everyday or almost everyday.I'm trying to spread out to different lakes so as to be well rounded.

Keeping the fishes pulse is my main goal & to talk about that .Again if there are questions or whatever there's the email address.

I know some pros that stay away from forums because of the banter.That's to bad as we could really glean some good info.

Well there it is,I hope your fishing is going well.Mine sure as heck is.

The fish have moved deeper with the hot weather by the by.

Most fish are in 15-25 FOW.

The weed patches have developed so if there's a pattern you used to work on the outside edges,nows the time to hit them.

We have been on the bass and sunfish around here. The eye bit has been ok but I have done a lot better.

One of my freinds was up around your area on Saturday and his 8 year old son pulled up a 29".

that's so cool to hear Dale.A 29" eye would have put that eye in the 9 lb.range.

for a 8 year old ,that was a trophy to be sure.

I'm a bit far for you to go for bear. We do have a good amount in the area.

Last year during grouse season I found an area being worked hard by a big brusier.

I have a size 14 foot & I found a rear print that I could put my boot in.

I'm guessung it was over 400 lbs,maybe close to 500.

He had tag elders 6" in diameter snapped off from chewing on them & if I hunted them I know where I'd set up.

Fecal piles all over including on oak tree limbs where he must have been snoozing.The tree stumps were dug out 3 foot down and you could see he spent a bunch of time in that area.

Promise me you'll keep on keepin' on! Only about a zillion lakes out there, and they all are on the up and down cycles - hot or cold one year doesn't mean much for the next year anymore.

ONWARD!!

It's easy to name a lake with only 20 residents.

      I start trolling raps with lead core in September,   look for active fish on the mud flats.  You can cover a lot of ground and produce a lot of fish. Some people think it is a boring way to fish, but I think it is a great change of pace and far more effective this time of year when fish seem to be more scattered.  I have not fished much over where Del has suggested but I am sure there are spots there. Niles Bay works too.

      Sorry to hear. Being the guide-dad you want everyone to have fun. No fish on worms? Had to be the Eclipse!

      Trip didn't go as planned. I had been asking some questions on here to get some info/ideas for the trip. Greatly appreciated all the stuff you guys shared with me. Unfortunately most of it wasn't in the plans  Camped at fall lake, as this was the first time my wife tagged along in a few years, and I thought his would be the most family friendly. After getting setup on Sunday, I launched the boat and goofed around for a bit, but didn't catch anything. My daughter was using worms, and she didn't even get a nibble. Is there not much for bass in fall?   Monday we had to spend some unexpected time in town, making certain purchases. Made it to snowbank late. Trolled for lakers, but only marked ciscoes. Once we started fishing for bass, we caught a few, but then the rain fell. Had it just been me and the 2 older kids, we could have fished through it. But with my wife and the youngest, it wasn't going to happen!   Pretty much the same thing happened on Tuesday. Went to burntside, but the lake was too windy. Went back to town, let the kids play at the park, then had lunch at the boathouse (I highly recommend the motorboat burger). Then we decided to keep it close and simple, and went to miner's pit. Weather got the best of us again. At least this time, my wife caught a few fish. No trout though.   Sometimes there's more to camping trips than good fishing though. We still had lots of fun, and I'm already making some notes for my next Ely trip, which I don't even know when will happen.

      Tommy, can tell by your posts and photos that your dogs are very special to you and Bonnie.  I shed a tear or two while reading this.  I got a kick out of you telling me here after I saw you driving through Cloquet a couple years ago.  You saw my dog riding co-pilot and you mentioned that you also had a dog in the passenger seat (can't remember which one) and Bonnie in the back seat riding with the other dogs.  Good Stuff! Take care, Bill

      I pop in here a few times lately for some humor for myself, it is hard to do. No, very hard to do...but this sight makes me smile sometimes so here ya go...FYI.   Moe Rock passed August 14th  ~  4 days before what would have been his 11th birthday.
      He was our rock in many ways and was one of the smartest retrievers we have ever had in our family in 30 some years.
      If you knew Moe Rock you can understand, remember. He was so strong an fought the cancer just over FOUR MONTHS....
      Pills n tests an more pills an more tests...until well CANCER SUCKS.
      In the end the cancer wins no matter how hard he fought or how hard his TEAM fought with him and for him. Bonnie an I, the special vets an techs at Osceola Animal hospital and the top doc's, students and assistants and at the U of M vet center tried very hard and long to help him in his battle. He never changed, stood tall an strong, bright eyes an devilish smile.
      Truth is we only stayed a couple steps ahead of the cancer that took him that day at 5 PM.
      He was strong right up until he passed with Bonnie an myself holding his paws an making his passing go easy. Bother Polar Bear Boy looking on also.
      Don't make any of this easy saying this, but he was not doing good at 5 am Sunday morning as that cancer stuff just jumped him good this weekend an well,  he lost.
      We never gave in, nor did he. This weekend at the cabin he tried to enjoy himself, DID enjoy it all.  He swam, couple dock jumps, we fished morning runs an sunset, did boat rides, worked on some shore n boat small projects an ate pretty dang well. He was fine until bedtime when we knew an HE knew something was happening.
      Not good. CANCER SUCKS!
      We had a great time, Moe only showing to Bonnie an myself an his Brother Polar Bear Boy he was not feeling to good in the evenings the last week. Very sad. Never forget Moe Rock or his up north name of NoMoeToe given to him by long time guest in my boat from Capser Wyoming the late Mary Cob and his Chisago City area name the Fire Chief gave him of ThreeToeMoe. He was not only special to me but to a host of people in this area an on or around Lake Vermilion for his whole life.
      Good boy, darn good boy. One regret is not everyone that knows of Moe or knows him only online did not get to meet him in person.
      You would have enjoyed him in many ways as we all did.
      Loveable, big nut, sweet, smart, goofy, odd and a total tick that like to start fights with this brothers an then leave them to settle it while he went an ate their food or got best seat on casting deck my big black boat.
      Yup, Moe Rock was a Tick.   Any way....very sad are we, but he fought like tuff darts, a good long fight.
      Never whined a bit, did as was asked an stayed pretty much himself the whole time until that Sunday morning really.
      Not once showing anyone not in family he was sick, real sick. Still loved his truck rides, belly rubs, swimming his pool, wratling with me n Bear, watching TV, Playing on Kendel or computer with Bonnie an just plain being Moe to his brother Bear Boy...big smiles. Fishing, how he love3d fishen...mostly topwater of any kind, but he would go with me anytime, anytime....true fish hound was he, our sweet Moezy.
      I did not tell anyone about Moe rock but Mom Joanne as figured he might kick cancer to the curb an well..........
      Never gave up hope but most times cancer wins in retriever hounds, even our sweet Moe Rock.
      PEACE!
      Very Sad. Now running with his fellow Mallard Island Marauders that crossed over before him, Barney Toonder, Homer J., Bailey, Beckey, Buddy.....plus Jack n Ev the Kats.
      Some good party.....good food, big smiles and all that go with them....all very special. Lov ya Moe......I miss you my boy....rest easy until we meet again.   Keep on rocken!   Tommy

      Here is the latest....it is changing quite a bit and the water is cooling off.  Check it out while you make your plan for Labor Day

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em
