      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 .

Has anyone heard anything about this lake lately? I was thinking of going there this weekend and was looking for any tips. Also, is the campground still open?

I drove through the campground on Sept. 23 just to check it out. It is a very nice, can't say when it closes, but there is information on the campgrounds on the Superior National Forest Website.

There were very few people at East Bearskin, and very few at Flour Lake, Some at Saganaga at the end of the trail. Nobody at Iron Lake, that one burned over.

The campground will be open for another week anyway. The fishing has been slow and what they have been catching has been small.

That lake is a dead sea. grin.gif Seriously I wouldnt drive all that way to fish that lake. Take what Gunflint says as gold he knows that area very very very well.

As far as the campsite goes it is nice and has several sites with lake access. Very pretty area this time of year. Leaves are changing so if your into site seeing its worth the trip. If your going strictly to fish I would find some place with better fishing.

Two Island or Devil Track...nice campgrounds and good walleye producers. Plus your close to town if you need anything. Nearby Pine (trestle) lake is a good stream trout lake also, if you want a change of pace.

That's weird- I posted a reply to this thread last night and it doesn't show up. Anyway- I've canceled that trip and will head up to Kabetogama with Overdalimit. I've been to East Bearskin twice (maybe three times now) and have done well every time. I went there for my honeymoon back in '01 and was trolling the south shore by the bearskin lodge when I hooked into something big eough to break my pole, then my line(I had the drag set WAY too tight) mad.gif. I'll never forget that. I remember waking up on the second day of our camping trip there which would have been September 13th and while looking at the frost on the tent said to the new wife "let's go get a lodge room for the rest of the week!". That turned out to be one of the best trips I've ever had.

That was probably a Northern although Lakers move into the shallow bays in late September. The water is higher than it's ever been for this time of year. There's no discernible thermocline and yet the surface temp is still around the 59 degree mark. The fish are anywhere from 12 fow to 50 fow. A lot of guys are having trouble in the usual spots this fall. The forecast is calling for rain all weekend so you probably made a good call.

Lakes can be good and bad, but I've had great luck fishing the 8'-12' breaks, sometimes shallower, rigging with a glow white corkie and a nightcrawler. There's some good structure to the left and down a ways to the left after you go through the narrows(westward on lake from campground). Key for us was early and late bite - have pics of some nice 27" & 28 walleyes - which are still swimming by the way...smallmouth around whenever you needed them - again, crawlers were best - better than leeches even.

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
