      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 .

Jep I know Jack. I don't post too much on catch-n, but I go by my real name Ben Newton. Jack is some sort of crappie genius. Last winter, Jack, Mike and I fished together on a metro Mississippi backwater for 'craps. We all fished the same location with similar lures and presentations, but Jack caught more crappies than Mike and I put together...

Call me an oddball, but I'd really like to get into some tullibee and/or whitefish through the ice sometime. Do you get those on BS?

So when you catch 'em, are you fishing for crappies and incidentally run into tullibees? Or do you specifically target them?

They come late ice.

I'll be fishing crappies and I'll see them come in way up high.

Then I'll go after them.

I was at BS a couple of years ago in the spring, there was another fisherman that was after tullibee. they weren't hitting on BS, so he decided to drive to Leech. It is fishing no matter what the species.

I am sure with a name like Carp-Fisher, you have read the "carp" forum. Tullibees, carp, bullheads...they are all fish.

Hay, carp and bullies are one thing!

Tullies are a whole differnt world and class of fish!

I used to buy smoked tulips and I tell ya! Smoked, they are the cats meaow!

I have tried carped smoked once, it was ok. Not enough oil?

Bullies are only good for bait!

Good luck!

Ok I admit it, I do fish for carp on occasion. If you have access to alot of big carp and/or buffalo fish try this: just smoke the rib sections of the fish...cut them out just like a small pork or beef slab. When you are done smoking the little slabs, you end up with some nice meat with toothpicks!

A genius...thanks, Carp. That's a first. It's all in how you hold your mouth. I'm looking forward to a few more winter trips to BS. But not quite yet. Too much good fall fishing ahead to be thinking of winter.

Not that I don't want to but probably not. I vacationed in GR a few weeks ago. Our winter trip will most likely be the next time up for me.

Crappie Keith,

My son is off of school for MEA on the 18th and 19th of October. My plan is to bring him up to our cabin on Big Sandy for some grouse hunting, but I'd also like to get him out on the lake for some fishing. I've never had a great deal of luck on Big Sandy after the turnover, but would love to get out and fish it some time. Let me know if you would be interested and going out with us for a day. We could use a good guide. We would be open either the afternoon of the 18th or 19th and would be willing to take you out in our boat. Let me know if you would be interested in coming out of the woods for either one of those days and we can try to get something planned.

I've enjoyed reading all of your posts on this forum for the past few years and it's obvious you have had a great deal of success fishing Big Sandy. I'd love for you to share some of that knowledge with my son and I.

Tony

Tony,I'd sincerely relish the opportunity to show you however I already have that weekend booked with hunters.

I would point you to Davis Bay ...in the 25 foot hole.

They should be there suspended.

Get set up with a slip bobber set up and minnow for those slabs.

Also on the main lake just off of the road to the west from Bill horn in Wabun Bay there is that big water slide.

Get straight out in front of it only favor the east where the small house is right next to the slide.Then look west toward the dam and line yourself up with that 1st point.

In 10-12 fow you can mark 2 cribs.

They will be there too.

The main point on the northern end of Bill Horn Bay. It gets 24 fow of off the point .Try there as well.

For eyes just troll 7 fow around the shoreline with lindy's tipped with leeches or find humps on the main lake that you can slip bobber with leeches in 7-10 fow.

You should get a good map or if you have an H2O with navionics you'll have 1 foot contours to lead you to those areas then use your electronic fish locator to home in.

If this was earlier in the year I'd have said yes in a heartbeat.

Once we get ice I can show you how to be deadly on BSL for those slabs.

I'm sorry,I hope this helps....oh Aitkin lake may be a place to try in the main 17 foot hole.

Crappie Keith,

Thanks for the response. I'm familiar with the slide and the cribs that you mention. We have a place on the lake near the boat launch/culvert.

Shoot me your email address or phone number, I'd love to bounce a couple of question off of you around Aitkin Lake and Davis Bay.

Tony

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T

      Here are some of the toads we have been catching on the Rum River this summer.  The biggest has been 19 1/4 inches.

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
