      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 .

First Week in Feb Trip TO LOW

Recommended Posts

perchking

The past 7 years I have brought up a group of guys to Upper Red and now everyone wants a little change. I am going to set up a Trip to LOW but I have no idea where to go. Some things we like are, FISH of course, quality over quantity, Sleepers on the ice, drive our own vehicles on the ice, maybe a tavern or 2 close enough to drive to, and I guess that is about it. I know my criteria is a little specific but I usually bring anywhere from 15-22 guys and everybody likes it a little different. I am just looking for some suggestions.

Thanks,

PERCHKING

OK. Any,and all of the advertisers on this website are all sources for fish houses,and all the information there is needed to get on to fish.Rocky Point,Long point,wheelers point,etc. are also good places to try. choose one and get your gear to have a good time winter fishing the lake.

Any of the fine resorts will be good places to rent out of. If you have that many people looking for something different this is the area to go. You can fish LOW during the day, head to Red for the evening if you want, or you can Run tip-ups in shallow, or fish walleyes on the Rainy River for more fun!

I personally would bring portables and gear to be mobile. that way if the fishing is slow in the houses you can move around and find them. You can also move in shallow for the evening bite as well.

Ask around at the resorts and see what they think! Jump back in here and ask a few questions too. There are lots of knowledgeable people here!

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

Depends on what you wan to do - If you want to enjoy the bar scene, any of the resorts on the river will work for you. If you want to be a little more secluded, I would recommend Arnesen's. The guides are second to none, the food is excellent and they always treat you well. I have been going up there for 13 years now and can't complain. If you want more details, drop me a line at robert (Contact Us Please) nathe at target.

haha, I was just looking on the board for that same reason! Been going to Upper Red, but we got hit with a snowstorm last year and couldnt get off the lake to hit the bar for awhile.....we all ended up w/ severe cabin fever so now we're going to LOW, but we're using day houses so we can eat decent food at night.

Arnesen's is the best on the lake in my opinion. I have always had good trips out of there operation. They have some of the best people on the lake. Plus they have a hugh selection of areas to fish right near the resort. Where as other places have maybe just a couple options Arnesen's has a hugh selection to choose from.

If you know the right resorts (Sounds like Portsmans), sometimes they will throw in a free trip for the organizer! It's worth it. They have a few places close enough to walk to if you want to change scenery, food is great, live bands almost every night......what else could a group of guys want on a trip to LOW! Have Fun!

Just be sure to get your reservations done soon. All places on LOW are popular (as they should be) and book up quick.

I had a very bad experience at Arnenson's after several good years there and will not go back. It is also far from any other resort. We have been going to several on the Zippel bay resort which means several bars, bait stores and you can drive out on a very well maintained road to bring your own gear or use rentals. In my opinion the best is Sportsman's, however it is the most expensive. However for my money I really like Cyrus resort. Owned by a nice couple who have gone out of their way on our 3 trips there and I can only say nice things about the resort now that some much needed repairs/updating to the cabins have been completed.

Oakdale, curious what it was that made your experience at Arnesens a poor one? First time poster, so I had to ask you that because 4 of us are looking at Arnesens for sleepers this winter. Thanks in advance.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      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.
