      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 .

Menagha Area??

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody, We are heading up to the Menahga area in a couple of weeks, I have access to a small fishing boat. Anybody have any suggestions for lakes in the area. I ahve a couple of boys 8 and 10. So it would be nice to find a lake where would catch some panfish, but still have a chance for a pike or walleye.

I have no idea what is in the area, if any.

Any info would be helpful..

Thanks

WAzz

For sure give blueberry a shot, my Dad took my young cousin out there last summer and got a good number of pike the only down fall to the trip, if you can call it that, is they couldn't keep any because of the 24"-36" slot. sounds like fun to me. As far as panfish stocking has some good cappie but not sure how good the bite is in the summer. Twin lakes is another one in the area, it has been putin out some good gills on the north side in the winter but by this time of year that is probly quite weedy, at ony time it was a good eater pike lake but now mostly little snakes! hope this helps

We have a cabin on Stocking just out of menagha. The crappies are in there, but you have to do some searching and sorting. As always you will pick up a bunch of small northerns and not quite keepable sunfish. Bass are also an easy catch on Stocking. It you want walleyes, probably your only chance is accidentally getting one while targeting crappies. Another good lake for panfish is Hinds Lake(8-9ft clarity), but it is tricky to find the boat landing. It is in between menagha and park rapids. If you go to the dnr website and use the lake finder link, and then go to the recreation compass, it should list all the public accesses for every lake, pond, river etc. Even Spirit Lake right in town has been good to us, but I havent fished that one in a few years. It used to have monster sunfish, along with stocking lake but I havent seen the size come back. Like someone else mentioned, blueberry is good, never fished it personally. Almost any lake in the Menagha area will produce fish for you, but you gotta spend some time and find the right spot.

potato would be my best bet. I fished it twice this year for the first time And has success both times. Could be different this time of year, but that is where i would head. Lots of northern and bass caught fishing walleye.

About 8 miles north of Park Rapids up 71, turn right on 40. Another mile or so and the landing is on your right after crossing the small bridge that spans the water way from Eagle to Potato. It's on the curve and comes up fast... easy to miss it.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
