      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 .

Medicine Lake

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.

Anyone been out lately? How the lake looking,(weeds, clarity) whats working for bass? I have never been here, but will be for league in 2 weeks. Not looking for any spots, just some general info about the lake. I heard the landing is really shallow right now, any reports?

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

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

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?
    • Wakemup
      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!
    • monstermoose78
      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.
    • monstermoose78
      I need to slow down and focus on shooting
