      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 .

Hey there Ryan. I did well last winter, going there sooner rather than later. Wondering how the ice is there (out from the east shore). If I know I can walk out 50 yds, I am there. Should be a good 4, but never know. Be careful and let us know the ice. Good luck.

i was out there sunday and did pretty good. brought home a meal of sunnies and small crappies... There are about 15 houses over near the south end by the point although i have heard the ice can be very dangerous on that point. Then there is another group out from the east side off of old mill road. I fished there last time in about 14 FOW. I am going out in about a half an hour if anyone wants to meet up i will be on the side where old mill road is(East Side) with a pak shack and a mora hand auger. Say hi if you see me!

Later,

Ryan

A mile from the landing to Central 65 on Main st. is closed for construction. Not sure when it will be open. You can access the lake from Centerville rd. or FrenchMan Rd. There is parking on where the dock is in the summer. Weekends tend to be a bit crowded.

Ice conditions are perfect for walking. I would just be careful if you were to walk out close to the middle of the lake. There was about 4-5 inches of ice where I was on Saturday.

Fishing was "ok" for the most part. Considering that my vex bat died on me the first 5 mins I used it, but I came home with a good dinner. Crappies were picky on presentation. Toke me an hour to get something consistant. The lake doesn't have much structure I didn't bother to be on the move. Make sure to bring a couple of your favorite lures. There sure was alot of pesky hammer handles.

Let me know how it goes.

From what I remember from years past on this lake is that the ice around the point is somewhat inconsistant. The water flows out of the lake and over the dam, there isn't much flow near the point but there is enough to make it a bit scary. A few years back, a buddy and I went out on first ice out there, finding 5" right by the pier, walked out and were setting up in 12 fow between the point and the pier and drilled to find 2" and cracking at our feet as soon as the auger punched through. We got out of there as quickly as we could.

With the snow cover we have on the lakes right now, be careful out there. Check as you go, we were lucky when we found the thin stuff, but the next guy might not be.

On the plus side, we usually found some pretty consistant action out there. I have pulled out eyes, pike, crappies, and gills out of the lake.

Had a great night on the lake tonight! Got out there at about 330 and stayed till about 630. must have caught 35 crappies without exaggeration as well as a few nice gills. Started on the east side using my favorite lure, the white ratso and right away i started banging fish nonstop. Mostly crappies mixed with a few gills and a small perch. Many of the gills were in the 7.5-8.5 inch range. I ended up keeping 8 crappies for a meal biggest being 10 inches smallest around 8.5". Fishing has been very consistent out there as i did about the same thing sunday night just with a little better size tonight. Snaped a few pictures for ya here they are!

30 plus? Dude, try about three times that! Thirty plus was what the lake was like in the late eighties! Okay, well thirteen, but thirty? Nope, any given weekend there is 2-3 times that even with iffy ice.

Evenrude,

I do really like the pak shack as of now... i can fit my big buddy heater marcum and myself all in there reasonably well. I was just out on the lake again today. I fished out of my buddies pak shack three though. The three man pak shack is very nice for two people but i think with three it would be way to crowded. The fishing was a little slower this evening. Got on the lake again at 330 and got off around 630. I went home with just 3 crappies tonight though. we must have caught 20 fish total but only three were worth keeping. I also met a man from Fishing Minnesota out there! I didnt get your name whoever you are??? How did you do?

Heres a few pictures. Pictures012.jpg

Biggest crappie of the night... 11"s

Pictures013.jpg

Me and my friend with some crappies

A bit of a slow night tonight but still fun none the less!

Last saturday there was about 15 or so by 12 when I left. No one really likes to get up 6. I suppose after this thread there will be an ant field this Saturday.

I hope the crappie population maintains for the next few years. I've seen so many people go home with bucket and come back the next day for some more. Even in the summer when I take my boat out. I see at least a hundred people on the shore casting out their flu flu jigs with a red crappie bobber. I've talked to some of them and they go out their daily.

Hey there Crappieman, was there Wednesday night, same story. Kept 5 = 9-10 inchers. Caught 17. Strange though, minnows (really small) out produced my waxies. Not often that happens. I can usually trigger the most finiky to bite, but the minnows worked. Any walleye action on this lake? I did loose one in my hole, about a 12 inch. Oh well, he was going back anyways. I may wiat until a weekday for my return to Pelt.

yea it seemed like there were now mostly spots of frozen slush so now there is probably 8inches of ice 2 beein frozen slush though. The crappies were pretty finicky wednesday night and the majority were not in the "large" range. I as well wont be going out until a weekday because im going to my cabin and the weekends will be VERY crowded out there. I may be out early next week Monday Tuesday? depends on the conditions. If its as windy as it is today i wont be out for a while grin.gif

      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. 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. 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. 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. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      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. 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.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!

      Hi, I am selling my 2012 Polaris Ranger 800 XP camo. Very low miles, 1200. Full hard cab, flip out glass windshield, windshield wiper, almost like new still. Great for ice fishing, hunting and work around the house.  I also have this ad on C.L.  10,000 b/0 text me for pics, thanks.  I am located in west metro 763-two34-0837

      Any bass reports?  Have the walleyes been moving in shallow at night?  South wind I am guessing their is fish on the south side of pine? 24-32 feet sounds like right in front of the cabin.  Any in crawlers or have they transitioned to minnows.  Did well in 18 feet last weekend.  No matter what cannot wait for 3 solid days of fishing!!!

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks
    • Wanderer
      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?
