      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 .

Ramp Conditions

Recommended Posts

Woollybob

Headed up to the pond this weekend. Can anyone suggest a decent ramp on the West side? I have a deep-V that pulls a lot of water and have already fouled the prop once this year. I don't mind paying to launch if the ramp is decent and less crowded.

Has the bug hatch slowed the fishing?

Thanks,

Bob

First, welcome to fishing Minnesota and Hot Spot Outdoors. Yes, the hatch was big but the other day we still caught our fish, slots and the bigger ones also.

Garrison (public) has taken some pretty big boats along with Terry's Boat Hardor. Avoid the casino public access(very shallow).

Watch out for the rocks at the Garrison public landing-- if you aren't trimmed way up there are rocks right off the channel' s edge.

The casino ramp was very popular and very shallow last weekend. You will run at 1.5 feet deep from the opening of the little harbor till a ways past the bouys. A good wind from the east would make that ramp very intersting. If I recall correctly Eddys dredged their harbor as well. Myr Mar was the most crowded ramp I saw last weekend next to the Casino ramp.

Also, when there was a real flurry of bugs the fishing seemed to slow but when there wasn't a hatch, the fish bit pretty well. I wouldn't worry about it.

What does it cost to put in at Myr Mar Marina? I thought it was closed.

I put in today at the Myr Mar access and it was windy. As a result, a wave lifted the boat and set the spinning prop down right on a rock. That was the end of that prop. I was able to run the boat with remainder of the day but the lost of performance from the one bent fin was interesting in that wind. I know have a nice new shiny black prop.

Does anyone know how the Red Door launch is? I'll be going there in July and am just curious. I'm sure the launch itself is ok but i know it's shallow coming out of there. Anybody know for sure?

Thanks

I just got off the phone with them and they told me that they dredged it to depth off 6' and 5 - 6' out the channel but she said with the wind it probably blew some sand back in.

She also said there are some pretty big boats in there harbor and have not heard any complaints.

Update: I spoke with a gentleman yesterday and he asked when they dredged at Red door because he was there on opener and said it was real shallow.

$8 or $10 a time. $100 a year at MyrMar. I haven't used the access since 6-9 but think it would still be fine. Harbor is 3-4' deep opening into lake 3' deep. With all the rocks out front I'm pretty sure that no sand has washed in. I paid the $100 this year after busting up 2 props & 1 skeg last year at the public access by MyrMar. Worth every penny especially if the wind comes up out of the S-SE when you try to load out!

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff
