      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 ever fished this little lake? i tried yesteray and got 4 eally nice sunfish over 8 inches and one crappie but they were tough to get. the lake is only 5 feet deep so i had to search along time for a hole out of the weeds. does anyone know of a hole out there that is not really weedy?

I fished there on the ice once last year of found the exact same thing as you, too many weeds to really get a nice hole. I too found a couple decent fish but because of the weeds they where really scattered. I think that most of those nice sunnies die out every year and the dnr stocks the pond in spring with adult fish. I would stick with larger lakes in the area like johanna, which is less than a mile away.

Yep.

Someone should delete this post soon because the pond is managed as a kid's fishing pond. Please don't abuse this little spot. According to the DNR they stock it each year with bluegill and crappie. If you want to bring your kids out there fine, but otherwise you might want to leave it be. Please try to respect what the DNR is trying to provide with that little pond.

Excerpt from the DNR page...

Langton Lake is managed as a Kid's Fishing Pond. Shore and pier fishing are available. The lake is subject to winterkill, and therefore is annually stocked with panfish in the spring. Over 1100 small (approximately 5 inch) bluegill were stocked in May of this year (2000). They showed exceptional growth - by June the fish had grown to an average size of 6.5 inches, and by October to an average size of 8 inches. Pumpkinseed and hybrid sunfish (also from the May stocking) were sampled in low numbers in June. Black bullhead were sampled in low numbers, with an average length of 5.3 inches. Annualy spring stocking of panfish is planned to continue.

If it does indeed freeze out every year and stocked annually then I think the kids will still get plenty of fish. That being said I doubt all the fish die and would still practice selective harvest letting the big fish live. Personaly I wouldnt give out names of lakes I get good pannies out of, especially small metro ones.

The lake is only 5 feet deep-every fish in it will be dead by christmas. that is why i went there first ice. why not catch a few of them before they freeze out.

I fished Langton several times last year with good results. Several large 8+ gills and some nice 10-12 crappies. I didn't keep many and threw most of them back. I agree that if it is restocked every year that it won't hurt the kids fishing. Just don't keep all the large ones from this little honey hole.

You'd be suprised There is a pond near my house about two acres max. depth of six feet and has crappies, sunnies, bass and pike. While there isnt much size to the fish they some how manage survive the winters. Spring fed maybe?

The DNR was in there in October removing a bunch of bluegills and crappies. Then they stocked them in a few other places. I guess the DNR stocks bluegills and crappies in Langdon in the spring and remove as many as they can in the fall. Sounds like expensive musical fish to me.

Maybe the numbers were so good there they decided to take some out. I'm sure there are still some good fish in there.

I agree. Spots like this that are good should not be shared with everyone. If you see a other angler out there just say hi, and ask if they are a member on this forum. Who knows mabey it could be me.

No, I talked to them and they said they were removing as many as possible before they killed out. The DNR bringeth and the DNR taketh away.

I just got back from Langton pond. 2 hours of drilling and scanning with the locator and never found a fish. I was on the south end, out from the fishing pier. I also tried the north side of the little bridge and the ice was pretty bad. I never found anything deeper than 3.5 feet. I was hoping to take my kids fishing there this weekend. Dang!

TRZ - Thanks for the heads up on this lake. I only get to fish a few times a year and appreciate the info. It's nice to know that the FIN - Fishing in the Neighborhood - program and lakes like Langton Pond exist.

has anyone got out there to find some of them slabs? too bad you took your kids and got blanked it was a tough bite you needed to be quiet and fish about 1.5ft below the ice, not the best for kids. I still want to hit this lake again and see if i can get some 10 inch gills I think they may be in there, i got one that was almost 9 inches. grin.gif

Langton will occasionally provide some nice panfish for kids if the winters are mild and the water levels are good the fish will crossover and survive.

Since the pond has a good amount supply of forage all year fish can expect to gain weight and grow fast.

To me Langton is nothing more than a Childrens fishing drainage pond. It may occasionally have a spike in fish numbers but winterkill or summerkill takes care of that. That why it's stock frequently every year. I would not keep fish out of there for many reasons. I don't recommend it for ice fishing either. But it's nice in the Spring & Summer for the little ones to get introduced to fishing. It's no secret or super fishing hole but feel free to try it out if your bored and have no other destination.

      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.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
