      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 .

I think you're going to have a hard time getting coordinates from anyone.

Get the lakemaster map and it has general coordinates for the flats, rocks, etc. It shouldn't cost you more than $20 or I think the Tut's maps have coordinates too.

If you're not sure where to go, let the masses help you. There should be enough boats around the rest of the year to help you find fishy spots.

Sloppy Joes, Banana, 7 & 5 mile have been worthwhile, especially the deeper edges away from the mud. Try 30+ feet during the day.

I wouldn't trust any coordinates you get from this crowd. We tend to not give up the hot spots. You can ask about tactics, areas (Sand, Gravel, Mud), but that is about as specific as you are going to get on the open forum. Someone may email you them, but even so, you are better off finding your own. Use the main areas as mentioned above, venture around a bit and you will find your own honey hole. Using other people's coordinates don't help you enough because it doesn't teach you the current pattern or specific day's bite conditions. Be flexible and find your own way, you will enjoy it much more than relying on someones coordinates from 2 years ago where they caught 15 fish.

VEXI,

That is like asking what the lotto numbers for next week are going to be grin.gif.

You sure get an A+ for trying.

I would get out to the pond and do like they said above. Soon enough you will build your own way points for hot spots. Then you can report back and let us know what they are grin.gif.

Good luck!!!!!!

I would say asking for fishing GPS points on a publish fishing forum is like asking for someone's bank account information.

The H20 uses the mapping chips. Get the lakemaster chip and use it to identify breaklines on flats or other structure that might be fun to fish. Go from there. Either that or get to know people, fish with them multiple times, become friends, and then they MIGHT get you those coord's! smile.gif

Get the lake master maps and mark spots as you here them on here Sloppy Joes, etc. The main thing is just because someone gives you a coordinates does not mean it is the right spot to always catch fish. Weather, wind, water temp time of year change these things. I don't mind giving out coordinates the main thing you need to know is when and how to fish those spots which I and others tend to keep to themselves. Good luck.

Rodmaker,

My cousin got in trouble with the wife at the last minute. He apparently forgot to ask permission. I told him that was his first mistake, not asking to go with a wife and 2 kids is like telling me your going to give up the hot coordinates, it just isn't going to happen. I swear, I am never going to make it up to ML. I am going to the cabin this weekend (Pelican), but that is with the family, so I will just have to fish there for the time being.

It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. But you have to get out of the house first.

That's my tactics... Hope she doesn't read this.

      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

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.
