      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 .

No need to give out GPS coordinates (you can e-mail them grin.gif) but, whos heading out this weekend?

My plan, the plan that I have not yet presented to Mrs boilerguy so it will probably change, is to hit Bingham Lake after work on Friday. I haven't fished this lake much, and let's just say I'm curious. Saturday is my sons birthday and he wants to do other stuff. Maybe that evening after festivities are over I'll go hit a lake somewhere. Sunday I think I have open, anyone wanna hit a lake????

Wooooooooooooooooooo, tempting. I was just told my weekend schedule is goood as long as i fix Mrs boilerguys chair. I can do that. I fix million dollar machines for a living I can handle a chair. Or, I can wrap enough duct tape around a chair to make it work.

I really want to go to URL, but I think it's no go for this weekend. However, I'm game for a Sunday if anyone is interested in a local SW MN lake.

I will say this, South side road is the way on, but don't always believe the masses are on fish. There are fish biting, but you have to find them. One thing I can surely tell you about Round, you have to be willing to move to keep up.

As for other reports from phone calls of people asking me where I am at... Lake Wilson perch bite... Boot Lake perch bite... Talcot walley bite.... Have not heard a single thing off of West Graham, or Okabena. East produced some fish a week ago with very light bite, not too aggressive.

I have many friends who have spent the entire week on Round Lake and yes they have caught some fish, but many were 12-14 inchers, which in my house get to swim again. Give me 3 or 4 16-18 inchers and me and the girls are gonna eat! Fry up the taters, butter me up a piece of bread and strap on a feed bag.

Long story short. There are some fish going home, but nothing to write home about. I am going to try again on Saturday afternoon, with the buddies, but for the most part we are just going to be christening a new year by bringing out the first of three hard houses....(this being the LIGHT one!)

I think I am done pheasant hunting in Minnesota this year. I got my share and gots to leave some to grow up. Plus I am going to South Dakota next week.

Tight lines and stay safe!

Last weekend. Dead smelt on the bottom. They are on the prowl that's for sure.

Some perch are coming out of Bean. Crappies and perch on Lime. I haven't heard anything about either Grahm or Cottonwood.

I never saw a house on Bean, but I heard the walleyes are biting on Double. Tonight again there were around 8 vehicles at the landing. I am going to assume at least 6 inches as there was 4 wheelers out there.

Kennedy is a fishing pro at the age of 10! Enjoy them eyes! Key to good day ice fishing is getting a full tummy in the near future and not falling in! Bonus if you don't have to walk 3/4 way across the lake again!!!! Had a blast man, gotta do it again!

Fish in the pail make the work out worth it.

I'm glad you towed my outta shape butt back. I would have had to stop at Wal-mart and buy a lung.

Too much fun. We have to hook up again. (pun intended)I don't know what lake I'm hitting next. I think I'll get the wheeler running this week and put my house on Sarah for a try.

I will be at a local treatment facility soon... but for the next week, I will be having ice fishing withdrawls. I have to go to ND for work and then hitting South Central South Dakota to shoot some rooty birds with the boys on the annual Pheasant hunt!

Keep some fish in the lake and be safe.

Sounds like you fellas had a pretty good time. My Amateur Coangler and I headed south saturday to do a little looking around and ended up with 25-30 nice gills and headed back sunday on my own and ended up with 49 gills and crappies in less than 5 hours on the ice. Pretty good weekend and hopefully the next will be better now that we should be able to get onto some better spots.

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!  
    • Wanderer
      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and 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. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and 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.
