      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 .

Looking to go out fishing this Thursday due to having the rest of the week off after today, has any fished this lake?? I have never tried this lake and was wondering what kind of fish to people usually catch out of there?? I normally go after Walleye, Bass and northerns. I'm also in need of renting a boat and noticed there is a place called Harty's Boat Works, is this a decent place to go?? Any info is appreciated.

Hardy's is great. Heck of a guy and he'll point ya to some spots. It's a great lake for pike, eyes and bass. For eyes try the midlake humps, just off the main lake point on the west side. For bass flip senkos and dingers under docks. Pike'll be on the weed edges as usual, I usually focus on the cabbage bed just east of the landing on the north side. I've had decent luck trolling spinnerbaits right over the top of the cabbage, in 5-7 fow. Keep the spinnerbait right in the propwash, about 35-40 feet out.

Thanks for the info, if the weather is nice I should be out there Thursday all day. I did look at a map and I saw the hump that you are talking about. I noticed your from Heights, I grew up down the off 49th & Central up by the high school.

I moved here from the Grand Rapids area 4 years ago, but my wife grew up on 44th & 5th. We're living off 37th right now. From what I hear the neighborhood use to be pretty decent, but it's going downhill fast! I think we might be getting out of there in a few short years.

We were out about 2 weeks ago and only did a little fishing, and didn't get anything (went for pannies).

I know the north end of the lake west of the park in the weeds is good for northerns.

BPA -

Welcome to the fun!

As far as fishing alone goes:

Safety-wise - it depends on your skill and comfort level with your boat. Med is a small enough and popular enough lake that, should you be unshipped, you can swim to shore or be helped by other boaters (just watch out for the skiers - they may not see you).

Fishing-wise - I like to fish alone, but if the company is good (or brings the barley pop wink.gif ) then you can party-fish to get 2 limits. And just maybe your partner knows the spot-on-the-spot for that lake and will tell you where the big 'uns are hiding.

Good Luck

TJH

Well, I guess my league won't be going there next week. We heard a rumor that the launch is in the city park, which closes at sunset. And, that they have been ticketing people as leave after official sunset time which would be around 8 PM. We plan on fishing until 8:30 and then measuring (barley pop) etc.

Long/short No Medicine for us.

I've been kicked out a few times, but never ticketed. I think I got lucky, though. I've had a couple of friends get tickets

In August for some strange reason it is a flat, 9AM open... 8PM close.

They do ticket, even though you have to pay $5 for parking a trailer. It seems they only want the $5000 a lakeshore foot owners on this "Public" water, after dark. Also they limit the number of parking spaces, and if they are full you are not supposed to launch, even if parking elsewhere, thereby severely limiting non lakeshore owners.

I think this is unfair and discriminatory and probably violates equal rights of access to public property! blush.gifshocked.giffrown.gifconfused.gif

I know, it's a joke. There's a spot on the lake, a small easement that you can access in the winter, but there's no way to put a boat in. You could carry a boat or canoe down, though. I do agree, however, that everyone should be able to access it. It's not like it's the lake that every rich and famous person wants to retire on

      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?
