      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 .

Bass lakes near Perham?

Recommended Posts

TedT

Hi - My family and I are staying at a friend's house on Little Pine Lake and I am looking for a good bass lake in the area. This is the 3rd year we are staying in the area and I have not found a good bass lake to fish. I usually use plastics on deeper weed lines but I am having trouble locating fish. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them. Thanks

Try buchanan or devils lake.

Good luck. Everyone I know fishes bass catch and release, so why not share some spots.

Thanks for the help - I also am a sportsman who only practices catch and release. I only know lakes in West Central MN - Green Lake etc. If you need a good spot around there let me know.

I am from Prinsburg MN - I understand that you want to keep some of you "honey holes" a secret - I would too. I was just looking for a little help. It seems everyone just likes to talk about Walleyes!

It's the MN fish. Bass are pretty much just bait stealers to me. I do make it out with the spinnerbait in hand once in a while though. Good luck!

As you likely have already found out Little Pine is a waste of time for bass.Big Pine is good but have had better luck for them fishing shallower. Devils' has a good deepwater bite and isn't too large to figure out in a day.The McDonalds are all for the most part good diverse bass waters also.Lots of excellent oportunities in Ottertail country and the great part about it is that most everyone is chasing walleye wink.gif

We go up to Dead Lake every September, usually do pretty good. Lot's of points and weeds, Bass heaven. Haven't fished there in the summer but it's worth checking out. Clitheral and Marion are suppose to be good too from what I've heard but never fished them. We'll probably try Clitheral one day this fall, it has smallies too.

Good luck.

Thanks for the info - I might look into Clitheral for some smallmouths.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
