      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 .

Boyer Lake - Public Boat Access?

Recommended Posts

jacedmal

Good Morning!

I have been trying to confirm information available in the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources web site, which indicates that there is access available for the public to lunch boats into Boyer Lake, at Becker County, MN.

I would appreciate any information in this regard.

Thanks!

Yes there is a place for the public to launch boats into Boyer lake, might want to wait a few months though... grin.gif... Just kidding. The pulic access is right on State Highway #10 right beside the nursing home, it actually is a very nice public access, "newly remodeled" in the past 5 years or so. Hope this helps.

Eyehunter is right. It is a very nice access and is easy to get on and off.

I would not even THINK about driving out there, however.

The access is not plowed, so it is easy to miss (even for myself). The ice IS NOT DRIVABLE as of yet. The fishing is notoriously spotty at best. I have a definite Love/Hate relationship with the lake. On paper it should be one heck of a fishery, but this remains to be seen in practice. I've been going to the lake on and off for over five years. 9 chances out of 10 I leave disappointed.

Todd --

I am with you.

But for me it is more a Hate/Hate deal.

When it is on, you can tell by the number of people. That lasts a SHORT while.

I have talked to people that Love the lake in the winter and do well, but the guy next to them can't catch a thing.

Talked to a guy at the office that said one of the Mattsons caught a nice big Eye and everyone and their mother came down. They all got next to nothing.

I have fished that lake about 15 times and have lost way more tackle than caught fish. Let's just say it is a (contact us) challenging lake.

Mattson probably caught the last one!

I've caught 2 dandy 'eyes and 3-4 good sized sunfish in five years. I have caught more fish than that, but not worth mentioning. I wish the lake would make a turn for the better because it is so pretty and so fuggen close.

Ah well, better lakes just 20 more minutes down the trail.

Tried Boyer one day and had no luck...i couldn't find the access so i ended up asking the nursing home if i could park in their parking lot which they allowed, and just walked the extra distance. You are right, looking at a map and the lake structure it should be a key lake, but i also found the map was out dated for depth, the lake must have flooded since the map was made, i found almost a difference in 5-10 feet from what the DNR map showed. Regretfully i have thrown in the towel on lake boyer!

Oh yeah, in all our Boyer Banter, we failed to mention the the lake is up at least 10 feet from the 1964(!) DNR lake map. The water level certainly changes things (a few more humps out there than what appears on the map)

Welcome to the club! You will return to Boyer. Whether you know it or not, it has infected you.... tongue.gif

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.
