      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 .

Is 3 mile reef out from hunters point producing?

It’s always producing!

You just got to get their and fish in and out of the buoy markers.

If I remember correct, there is a pretty stout drop off on the north end of markers. Anchor and slip bobber with leech or minnow right on break and you will get walleyes. It is always nice to mark fish before you set up.

Pulling cranks at the depths of marked fish works well also.

I have always seemed to have more luck on North end and little to the east. Who knows though!

Is this the spot by Garrison? I'm not that familiar with the names of all the locations. I know there is a reef just north of "3 Mile" but the nearest point seems to be Pike Point.

Husker, Three mile reef is on the southeast part of the lake north of Isle.

I would say it is a little to the east and in the middle of the lake. If you have a map, find big point (Big point is on the east side about half ways up). After you locate big point, put your finger on it and slowly go west out into lake. If I remember right, you might have to go up just slightly. It is not all the way to the center of the lake, about half way to the center.

minnesotatuff,

Thanks!

I never have fished in winter! My winter fishing is in the area of Doe island reef down to Isle bay and over to cove bay!

Do not rule out drifting! Keep rod tips up (so you do not get snagged in rocks) and use 2-4’ snell with red or yellow hook. I would use .5 to 1.0 once weight. Leech or crawler works best. What ever way wind is blowing (if there is wind) and set up and position your self so you will glance off to one side or another of 3 mile reef markers. This has been lucky for me also.

      Lots of birds kept spots open and the snow covered them now. It’s dangerous if you just rush out. Take your time if you are going to Ann lake or Lori or any in that area.  This my stomping grounds and there only one lake I would fish in the area

      Fished from 0815-1230 today out from McKinley out to 26 FOW. Found about 10.75 inches good ice with snow cover varying from 2 inches up to close to a foot in the soft drifts but still not too bad for hiking while dragging the flip over. Had decent action from 0830-0930 bringing up 8 walleyes less than 12 inches long, a 12 inch perch and 2 tullibees all released. About 50-50 on set line vs glow jigging spoon both with chubs. Not sure why I couldn't connect on better quality fish. Still a nice morning with the snow lightly falling and peaks of sun. Good running into you, Cliff! Hopefully we'll cross paths again this winter.

      I may make it over to Elysian, Francis, or Tetonka this Saturday. Depends what I find on the Mississippi tomorrow afternoon. From what I have heard the ice on the backwaters around Winona and La Crosse may actually be in better shape than that around Waseca and Faribault, which is kind of odd for early ice. Usually the south-central MN lakes freeze up just a bit quicker.
    • JIvers
      I'd be surprised if there were much good ice on Bartlett this weekend--that deep water with a bit of current takes a while to freeze--but I may go out and take a look anyway tomorrow when I am up in the area getting my first ice fix of the year in. Anyone got any early ice reports for the Mississippi backwaters around Winona and Lacrosse? I'll be adding mine tomorrow night.
