      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 .

Rick & CK find a new lake on fire.

Recommended Posts

palisade1kid

So there's this little lake that no one ever see someone fishing.

Rick & I decide to see what it is all about.

It's got some 20 foot for a max depth and a good stiff break line once you hit 10 fow.

It's only 200 acres or maybe a bit bigger.

It has a ton of lilly pads growing all around the lake.

Picture064.jpg

We are tossing buzz baits right through all of those pads when this guy tags my bait on the outside edge of the pads.

It was a hard smash on the waters surface.

Picture068.jpg

There were a few more that we caught,but nothing boated were any bigger. We did manage to hook up on 2 others that spit the hook when they made their mighty leap into the air and by the looks of them they were bigger than the one in the picture.

The buzz baits started to take their toll on our arms so we switched over to a jig and sassy shad in a 3" black and pearl with a 1/4 oz white jig head.

As we trolled the pike would hit those shad like gangsters.

After around 6 or 7 -3 lb'ers I managed to hit this 33 incher.

Picture071.jpg

It was a girthy brute that gave me a great fight while I was using my Grandt 6' medium action rod.

I'll say it could take a lot more fight albeit that pike made several runs.

No leader or nothing.

I was a bit lucky with the jig placement on the side of it's mouth.

Once I saw the line was not in his teeth i really laid on the heat.

Watch the video.It's too bad the motor was running for most of the fight as that pike had my drag just a singin!

The pike seemed to be holding in the 8-14 fow.

Se we battled them right into sunset & then tagged a bucket full of small sunnies & crappies. Nothing worth keeping ,but I can tell that I fished today.

These guys were doing the same thing we were doing.

Picture069.jpg

The ducklings had to be dodged of coarse on our way in.

and the sunset showed off these clouds in the most prettiest was.

What a day.

You have my number,whatcha waiting on???Those bass to get bigger?

That's no bass it's a carpet carp.hahahahahahahahaha!

I met a guy from this site & we headed out for a little rearing this morning.

His name is Brian & he's got a good head on him for fishing.

I left my locator at home ,DOAH!

So when we hit the 1st lake it was near impossible to stay out of the weed as the breaks are so sharp.

We pulled out after an hour of struggling with little fish being caught.

I decided to try that lake Rick & I had some success on yesterday.

It's a bit more forgiving as to the sharp break & we did manage to catch some fish in the hour we had left.

Here's Brian with a few pike.

Picture075.jpg

Picture072.jpg

Picture074.jpg

The action was not like what we had yesterday ,but then again we fished later in the day right into dark.

I also managed to hook up on another carpet carp too.

Picture073.jpg

All in all it was nice to meet another fisherman & it looks like we will be doing this again.

The added bonus is that Brian hunts too so I'm looking forward to some duck/goose hunting with maybe a grouse hunt thrown in for good measure.

Thanks Brian for stopping by & it was a pleasure to fish with you.

Here's a video of a pike & Brian having it out.

Cool beans!

I'll look forward to that day then!

We went out for some eyes tonight.

I caught 2 stockers ,pretty slow with the weekend boat pressure & the barometer being so high.

Come fall the action should pick up ,but then hunting season starts.Too many fish & not enough time to catch them,errrg!

These fish have not seen to many presentations I'm thinkin so whatever you'll need is cool.

You only get 1 box though.hehehehehehe.

Heck 1 Scumfrog & you'd be set maybe a buzzer or a jitter bug or a spook would be alls you need.

I have tons of jigs and shad bodies.

Just found out last night we'll have familey up from Texas that weekend. So I can only fish until about noon on Saturday. Maybe we could meet at the lake and you can just run me back to the bout lunch at noon.

Why don't you just hang with them instead of spreading yourself so thin SF?

There's this problem,Mallard's gonna be up and his boat might be a tad big for the access.So that means I'll drop my skiff in there .Well there's not room for 3 big guys in that dink of a boat.

I think we could maybe get his in there ,but it's up to him not me if we should try it.I'd need a number so I can call you Fri. night to verify as we will hit it fri. night giving Mallard a visual on the access.

so do I have to confirm or can I deny????I'd laugh to see you pushin mud to get in there.The water is way down and it's not a very good access to start with.

I can only get in with a 12 foot skiff & that's a workout.

Aha! I got it.

I havent been there in a couple years.

That cabin in one of the first pics is on the NE side of the lake. There is a farmstead on the SE side of the lake.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.
    • Wanderer
      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!
    • grundy
      don't  give them any ideas!
    • fisherjmb
       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.
    • Jim Almquist
      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
