      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 .

Does anyone know the thickness of the ice or if anyone has been out on Hydes by NYA? I usually like to hit this lake early season.

Hey WAC...i only slighty agree with you. This website provides valuable info in regards to many things...one of them is SAFETY. It isn't like people are giving EXACT spots, times and what to fish with. Most people are inquiring about small lakes right now because they want to fish on a lake with fish...and stay safe. I do agree with you in terms of "what people are inquiring about"....but i am happy to supply info about what sort of fish are in a lake, what the ice depth is, and maybe a past experience.

I agree with both you guys, i remember when almost no one else fished this lake and now there are huge crowds. Im just trying to figure out ice depths so I can have a safe day on the lake. I just want to go to a small lake until the bigger ones are froze over and safe to walk on.

Right on tip... this is a great site for info I was just saying that you got to remeber there are thousands of people looking at these post. If you asked me post like these killed that lake and its a real shame. Free country you guys can talk about any lake you want. Just a heads up to what can happen if you start posting on these little lakes like Hydes that can't take that kind of presure. Good luck to you guys and by all means be safe out there.

I'm surprised that was it. That lake gets pounded now from word-of-mouth ruin. Like Wac said, all it takes is mention of a lake for the crowd followers to show up. And you don't need to say where the spot is on a 200 acre lake-it's obvious. Good thing there's better lakes in the area....

i drove by on sunday, and there was 8 portables out there.

for all the fish that have been taken out of there in the last year, i still cant believe that so many people are still fishing it.

you and everyone else has and still will fish crappies till the lake itself is gone again for another 12 years.

There has been so many awesome fish caught out of there in the last year, and i believe there is still a ton in there. I dont fish them, but my old man spent alot of time out there, and he was getting some nice fish, but to many people out there fishing them out.

You guys kill me. If you want to complain about some one posting a report, go elsewhere. It's call free speech and this arguement is older than any of you.

ps I live 7 miles from Hydes and knew they were slaughter the fish out there. I have never fished the lake. If you don't like someone posting about your lake, go fish another.

just my Opinion, and i beleive I am entitled to it. grin.gif

In reality, if nothing would have been said, this thread would have gone un-noticed and not really caused anyone to go fish the lake that doesnt already, he was just asking for some ice conditions so he can be safe. But since he got jumped on for making the post, now this thread has everyones attention and people will go find out what it is about this lake that you dont want people knowing about.

My point being, if you see a post about a small lake that you dont think can handle more pressure, dont bring any more attention to it than already had been, you just made it worse.

This lake has been destroyed due to urban sprawl and the internet. Period! This is one of the last remaining lakes in the west metro that was once considered a "farm" lake. Arguing about it on the net is only going to add chatter (as I just added another post to it). The people who have been out there in the past will continue to go until the lake stops producing numbers which I believe already has.

(besides all of the 15-17 inch crappies I caught last night)

Duh!

I agree. I think some fisherman fish lakes out of habbit. Which is ok with me & not a big deal at all. I've fished a couple small lakes in the area within the last 10 days or so and have come to the conclusion that the pressure inflicted the last 2-3 years has wiped out a couple of the good smaller sized lake bites that were going on. I have sat in my portable for a couple hours giving multiple presentations and iced three small fish.... Now I know one should be more mobile but I was too lazy and only had my hand auger... I really don't think that there is a healthy population of decent sized fish anymore... Time to move on and let these lakes rebound. Give two or three years and it'll happen all over again.

I just can't believe that anyone would keep any fish to eat out of this lake (and it's neighbor). If you think I'm nuts for saying this, you need to go out in the middle of summer to take a big ole whiff of what's in there. Poo run off. Period. Nasty, nasty.

it wasnt that bad this year when i went out there with my bass boat. It was 89 degrees out, in the middle of summer, and i had not bad smell from the lake.

Its a great little lake, and i hope that people watch what there taking home.

      Sorry to hear. Being the guide-dad you want everyone to have fun. No fish on worms? Had to be the Eclipse!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Trip didn't go as planned. I had been asking some questions on here to get some info/ideas for the trip. Greatly appreciated all the stuff you guys shared with me. Unfortunately most of it wasn't in the plans  Camped at fall lake, as this was the first time my wife tagged along in a few years, and I thought his would be the most family friendly. After getting setup on Sunday, I launched the boat and goofed around for a bit, but didn't catch anything. My daughter was using worms, and she didn't even get a nibble. Is there not much for bass in fall?   Monday we had to spend some unexpected time in town, making certain purchases. Made it to snowbank late. Trolled for lakers, but only marked ciscoes. Once we started fishing for bass, we caught a few, but then the rain fell. Had it just been me and the 2 older kids, we could have fished through it. But with my wife and the youngest, it wasn't going to happen!   Pretty much the same thing happened on Tuesday. Went to burntside, but the lake was too windy. Went back to town, let the kids play at the park, then had lunch at the boathouse (I highly recommend the motorboat burger). Then we decided to keep it close and simple, and went to miner's pit. Weather got the best of us again. At least this time, my wife caught a few fish. No trout though.   Sometimes there's more to camping trips than good fishing though. We still had lots of fun, and I'm already making some notes for my next Ely trip, which I don't even know when will happen.

      Tommy, can tell by your posts and photos that your dogs are very special to you and Bonnie.  I shed a tear or two while reading this.  I got a kick out of you telling me here after I saw you driving through Cloquet a couple years ago.  You saw my dog riding co-pilot and you mentioned that you also had a dog in the passenger seat (can't remember which one) and Bonnie in the back seat riding with the other dogs.  Good Stuff! Take care, Bill

      I pop in here a few times lately for some humor for myself, it is hard to do. No, very hard to do...but this sight makes me smile sometimes so here ya go...FYI.   Moe Rock passed August 14th  ~  4 days before what would have been his 11th birthday.
      He was our rock in many ways and was one of the smartest retrievers we have ever had in our family in 30 some years.
      If you knew Moe Rock you can understand, remember. He was so strong an fought the cancer just over FOUR MONTHS....
      Pills n tests an more pills an more tests...until well CANCER SUCKS.
      In the end the cancer wins no matter how hard he fought or how hard his TEAM fought with him and for him. Bonnie an I, the special vets an techs at Osceola Animal hospital and the top doc's, students and assistants and at the U of M vet center tried very hard and long to help him in his battle. He never changed, stood tall an strong, bright eyes an devilish smile.
      Truth is we only stayed a couple steps ahead of the cancer that took him that day at 5 PM.
      He was strong right up until he passed with Bonnie an myself holding his paws an making his passing go easy. Bother Polar Bear Boy looking on also.
      Don't make any of this easy saying this, but he was not doing good at 5 am Sunday morning as that cancer stuff just jumped him good this weekend an well,  he lost.
      We never gave in, nor did he. This weekend at the cabin he tried to enjoy himself, DID enjoy it all.  He swam, couple dock jumps, we fished morning runs an sunset, did boat rides, worked on some shore n boat small projects an ate pretty dang well. He was fine until bedtime when we knew an HE knew something was happening.
      Not good. CANCER SUCKS!
      We had a great time, Moe only showing to Bonnie an myself an his Brother Polar Bear Boy he was not feeling to good in the evenings the last week. Very sad. Never forget Moe Rock or his up north name of NoMoeToe given to him by long time guest in my boat from Capser Wyoming the late Mary Cob and his Chisago City area name the Fire Chief gave him of ThreeToeMoe. He was not only special to me but to a host of people in this area an on or around Lake Vermilion for his whole life.
      Good boy, darn good boy. One regret is not everyone that knows of Moe or knows him only online did not get to meet him in person.
      You would have enjoyed him in many ways as we all did.
      Loveable, big nut, sweet, smart, goofy, odd and a total tick that like to start fights with this brothers an then leave them to settle it while he went an ate their food or got best seat on casting deck my big black boat.
      Yup, Moe Rock was a Tick.   Any way....very sad are we, but he fought like tuff darts, a good long fight.
      Never whined a bit, did as was asked an stayed pretty much himself the whole time until that Sunday morning really.
      Not once showing anyone not in family he was sick, real sick. Still loved his truck rides, belly rubs, swimming his pool, wratling with me n Bear, watching TV, Playing on Kendel or computer with Bonnie an just plain being Moe to his brother Bear Boy...big smiles. Fishing, how he love3d fishen...mostly topwater of any kind, but he would go with me anytime, anytime....true fish hound was he, our sweet Moezy.
      I did not tell anyone about Moe rock but Mom Joanne as figured he might kick cancer to the curb an well..........
      Never gave up hope but most times cancer wins in retriever hounds, even our sweet Moe Rock.
      PEACE!
      Very Sad. Now running with his fellow Mallard Island Marauders that crossed over before him, Barney Toonder, Homer J., Bailey, Beckey, Buddy.....plus Jack n Ev the Kats.
      Some good party.....good food, big smiles and all that go with them....all very special. Lov ya Moe......I miss you my boy....rest easy until we meet again.   Keep on rocken!   Tommy

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em
