      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 .

Really, really weedy. Never tried it in the winter, might be interesting. There are some scary-big carp in there! Let us know if you're planning an expedition.

In the late nineties when I worked in Roseville and in-laws lived right off of CR I, I fished this lake a lot.

I think the aerator is way off on the west/south end. I would fish the east/ north end, out from launch. I would lurk around, until I found 15-17 FOW and graph fish. I caught some nice crappies out of that lake. Nothing bug, but after picking threw them, one could get enough for a meal. At least good action. I would go out of launch area right southwest, until I found depth. Small jig, spring bobber and a small crappie minnow. If they slow down, fish right under the ice. I worked second shift at the time and found 3:00 am to 6:00am a very productive period of time. Once and awhile, a hammer handle would rip me off.

Good luck!

Good luck!

try that tiny little thing right off 35W before 694 on the east side. it looks like an acre. there are always guys on that thing and it has to be frozen completely. i have no idea if they catch anything, but my guess is whatever gets in there during the spring high water is fished out really quickly this time of year.

I thought the same thing last year and ventured out there after work for a couple hours and didnt even catch a nibble or graph a fish ... maybe i was doing something wrong, but i moved around and tried different set ups , just no luck.

It's just south of 694 on the east side of 35. I've always wondered about that lake too.

ive canoed and fished the lake in the summer and spring. There are a lot of very small gills in there, and i have seen some absolutely ridicoulous big carp in there. I believe the aerator is by a drainage pipe where the dock is in the summer. I am gonna try and go out this weekend just to see if the carp will bite through ice

Shackbash, the answer to your question is either west round lake or valentine.

I have fished all of these lakes and havent caught much but dinky little stunted bluegills and paperthin crappies.

Thanks! This is the one I was thinking of. Been years, but valentine was nother one I fished. I can not remember cathcing anything out of there either.

I also see the pond you guys are talking about. Never fished that.

If I was in this area fishing, I would stick to Snail, Long, johanna or Silver.

Ryan, the one that I was referring to was on E2 and 35W. Its really more of a pond than a lake unless you are trying to sell "Lakefront" property. never fished that before but have seen guys set tip ups on the SW corner of it.

well i went out to lake(pond) "x" (the one on 35 and E2) and found myself with plenty of fish but nothing over five inches in the whole pond i dont think... If you saw three guys out there that was us! i was in my pak shack and the two buddies were just sitting outside with lanterns... we were out for about3 hours and caught about 20 4-6" crappies with a few sliver sized sunfish... there is about 3 1/2 to 4 inches out there by the way...

Later,

Ryan

      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
