      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 .

New to fishing in Rochester,When does the green slime & weeds go away?

Welcome to fishing in Roch,

I don't believe there is any one answer to your question. It depends on a lot of factors.

The weeds in Willow Creek will generally start turning brown within the next month or so. Some weeds on Foster Arends will die at about the same time, but others will stay green and flourish throughout the winter.

Most water impoundmen’s will go through a variety of water clarity cycles. Things like alge blooms, water turnovers, rain, and water temp all affect this. Typically a body of water is green for about 1.5 weeks before it starts to clear. Some never completely clear up in the summertime though.

The green slime you’re talking about is a tough call. If the water is stale sometimes the green slime will break off in chucks and float to the surface. Other types affixes to rocks and other firm surfaces. I honestly don’t know exactly when that stuff goes away.

Good questions though. Hopefully somebody else can chime in. Welcome to FishingMinnesota.coma

Not much of a weed expert,...but maybe,..(if you don't mind nameing your fishing spot) you could tell us the body of water you are referring to. There are alot of knowlagable people here,...and maybe you might find one that frequents the place you are referring to. Being a regular visitor to a lake can some times be better than a text book life cycle of weeds and slime wink.gif ,...as every body of water is unique,..and as tyler said it faces many unique factors that will set it apart from others.

Good luck, and welcom to the family!!!! cool.gif

Foster Arends has been reported to have Milfoil in it. Tis not good at all.

Oxbow has plenty of smallies within the park. Caught 10-20 each trip out there last year, but they ran small. Might have had 1 or 2 that taped in the teens, but that was it.

I've seen lots of suckers out there, but never fished for them in the park. I imagine one could catch some iffin he tries.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
