      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 Liberty Beach Public Access!!

Recommended Posts

As of today Liberty Beach just got the final layer of new tar put on it. Got to be the nicest access I have seen on the east side and the best part is it is free! Got to be carefull coming out of the harbor though because it is narrow, but as soon as you hit the lake no problem with the shallow water. Went out of the wharf a couple weeks ago and it terribly shallow. Got beached and had to jump over board and push my Warrior through the sand. Like I said Liberty Beach public side is now open from construction and is a great landing.

Can you explain where that launch is please? I have a Mille Lacs map so which bay should be enough or just general location. Thank you!

Inbetween Hunters Point and Big Point on the east side. Or about 10 minutes north of Isle. Big white sign, if you hit Malmo you went too far! grin.gif

Thank you!

Just want to add it to the list of options I am putting together for my trip up there next week.

I have mentioned it before on here but if anyone is coming down to the SW Missouri area I will be more than happy to help. I fish around 80 days per year and usually have an idea what is going on.

Any estimate on how many parking spots? How was the layout? Does it look like it has a good flow pattern? Enough room to button up the boat after pulling out? How many ramps?

Yes you can. I actually did that 2 nights ago except I slept in my truck. The lot is huge, and easy to get in and out. Traffic stays on the outside lane and parking is in the middle. Two ramps to launch the boats. As of 2 days ago they have not gotten the dock in yet in between the ramps.

Not sure how many spots as the lot hasn't been striped yet, but it is a lot. Here are some pictures for you

db, did you go by yourself? i wanted to go so bad today but ended up not because i didnt want to launch & load by myself. ive got a warrior too and im not much of a walker (use cane). it helps having someone with to park the vehicle and go get it when done. last spring i went a couple times by myself and i love fishing that way...selfish about keeping my bait where i want it and not having to worry about the other persons bait too. but with the even lower lake, im a little more cautious. liberty looks fantastic for east side fishing.

today everything looked perfect. the moon is in 80+% full moon staging. the wind looked perfect. i know just where i would of tried...hahahaha. :-( next saturday for sure! i mixed up times and the neighbor couple are going next weekend. ...dont think we will have as good of weather though. on the brighter side, the water temps might cool a little.

good luck to all!

regards,

minnesotatuff

ps, thanks paul for the great pictures!

Is this the same area that used to be Liberty Beach cove? (A ramp on each end).Is there a tavern on that property? Or is it down from there? Was there last fall and was still paying to launch.

Kevin,

Yes there is a tavern there, Liberty Beach Resort. They have a pay launch adjacent to the public one now.

Yes I went by myself, which I do 90% of the time being I fish mainly during the week when everybody else is working. Not fun loading a bunk trailer by yourself but I have got it down to a short process.

This was not my experience. As of Friday night around 10:00 PM this access was barricaded off and there were pavers and heavy equipment still parked there. There was only one lift of asphalt. They havn't put the 2nd on yet. Good thing I had a backup plan. I would check with someone else before planning a trip and launching from this access.

That is strange because I launched my boat there Thursday and they had one pass of the second coat of blacktop going from the launch area out to the road. They stopped because of the storm. Equipment was in the lot and I had no problem getting in or out. The lot is huge as you can see in the pics. There was no barricade on the east side of the lot. There are a bunch of big boulders in the way on the north side where would drive last year to launch on the public side. Looks like they seeded that for grass now.

Someone put the barricades back up late Fri. afternoon or early evening sometime. They were up when we pulled a pontoon out Sat. afternoon. People have been driving around them for weeks. There were 6 vehicles with trailers in the lot on Sat. (evening) of Labor Day weekend when I pulled my boat out. The 2nd round of blacktop is done, looks like painting the lines is left and putting in the Satellites.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
