      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 .

I was just wondering if anybody on this awesome spearing site has any good spearing Ideas for the walker\longville area.I have access to a cabin up there and was looking for spearing spot. One lake on the map that looked good was ox yoke lake. But I'm not familiar with the area so any help would be grateful. Thanks

I was also thinking the same question. But its more for my now retired father who has a lake home on Leech. Can you spear on Leech or not. Any input would be great. No worries about us setting up on your spots or anything because IF we do go spearing it may only be one or two times this year in a portable.

thanks,

mr

If you want some good action Ox Yoke and Webb can be pretty good. There are some monsters in Mule and Blackwater. The old baitshop by Mule used to have pictures of some giants that were taken on that lake. A couple muskies were taken too (angling). Not much for numbers but definitely some nice sizes.

You can't go wrong with many lakes up that way. They either have numbers or size on pike. It's just a really great place as far as the resource goes...clear and productive waters. Like no other in the state. You can find good walleye, bass, pike, or panfish lakes anywhere in that area.

Mule and Blackwater get the occasional muskie. It's believed to be transplants, cause they weren't stocked there. Blackwater has some Ciscos in it and both lakes have very abundant game fish populations, so I'm sure they could do well. There are lots of lakes around Longville that have historically had musky.

Spearing is open on both lakes. There is excellent clarity and some really good vegetation. If you're out for size and do decide to try Mule or Blackwater, on Mule I'd try the north end narrows or one of the steep transitions on the east or west shorelines. On Blackwater, there are some good reed patches to set up next to a 67 foot drop off. It is a STEEP dropoff. I would try there if I was a betting man.

Has anyone tried Pine lake? It is located about 2 miles south of Leech near Whipolt on Hwy 200. I've fish that lake every summer. It's very clear, good weeds and lots of pike. Wondering if anyone has tried it?

Tried spearing in Walker Bay this past weekend but the water was quite cloudy, although I still managed two fish. Did I just hit a bad spot or does walker bay get like that? Anyone have any suggestions on other areas of leech to try spearing?

Thanks

Joe

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
