      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 .

Anyone have any info about this lake? I spent a good deal of time with my dad while he was in the hospital just talking and being thankful he is recovering. He told me some stories about this lake from when he was a young boy. My goal is to hopefully get him on the water one more time as it could be our last. many thanks in advance guys!

Castaway, sorry to hear about your dad, I hope you're able to get him out. Here is what I know about Red Rock. It is a great lake early and late in the year, as it is suseptible to algea blooms that really turn it green. The last time I was out there, there wasn't a dock at the access if that posses a problem for getting your dad in and out of the boat. It is a pretty good walleye lake, the panfish are decent sized, and the bass are everywhere. This time of year I guess I would concentrate around the Island for walleye, and bass, and outside of the back bays for panfish and bass. I hope you are able to get your dad out dude, I know for me the thought of not getting to go fishing with my dad would be a heart breaker frown.gif. I hope this helps you out.

Unless the DNR pulled the dock in the last couple of weeks there should be a dock there. The landing is extremely shallow, if you have a larger rig on a bed trailer you may not be able to float or power it off. A roller trailer should be ok.

thanks alex for your caring words and thoughts and thanks agape for the info...If things go the way they can, I could maybe get him out in a month or so, so at the earliest it would be the end of September or early October...boat's a 17 ftr so fairly easy with or without a dock. Is there only one access. Are there any resorts or what would be the best overnight accomodations around? I can rough it a bit, but the more comfortable with him, the better for him. Again, thanks guys and to whomever else may respond...it just feels great thinking positive thoughts about getting out with him. Funny thing, the other day here in Omaha, a 96 year old man and his 70 year old son were boating together on the Missouri river. They tried to go up into a channel and got high centered in deep mud. The fire and rescue had to get them out, and as the t.v. reporter spoke with the eldest, his grin and witty remarks made him look like a kid...it was probably a blast for him, but to think...would be kinda cool to have that kind of relationship with your dad for 70 years or more...how fortunate!

Castaway, there is only one access to the lake, as far as a resort I can't help you out there. I believe there is one but not a clue as to the name of it. Otherwise there are many towns not far from the lake with motels, not the same as staying on the lake but at least you would be close. Hoffman would be teh closest town, otherwise your only 15-20 minutes from Alexandria. Hope this helps you out a little more. P.S. the access is on the east side of the lake off of hwy 27 and county road 1.

Not unless there has been one built this summer, there is no place to stay on the lake. You can camp on Elk Lake near Hoffman, which is less than 10 minutes away from Red-Rock. As far as fishing goes, the Island that was already mentioned is a good place to start. Also, I have had good luck near the point where the lower an upper halfs of the lake meet.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping

      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
