      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 .

I have not fished it much in the winter. I do get out a few times on the open water. Great pike population but not sure if they are as aggressive during the winter as summer. If they are you should see a lot of flags. Good panfish population as well. Good luck

was at minnewashta yesterday,, the ice is solid but there are some shakey slushy spots where you break through down to about 2-3 inches of ice.

fished tipups, it was slow, there was a couple others panfishing and i didnt see anyone pull anything up.

the water was clear though

As far as I know the only legal access would be from Minnewashta regional park off of hwy 41. The park has two boat launches. Many folks also park on the point, or "the beach," and then walk out.

I have never seen much VEHICLE traffic off of the big launch during ice season. Must be some notorious bad ice on that side of the lake.

from what i can tell the water is pretty clear.

there is a place to get in on the west side of the lake i think it is called minnewashta blvd or something like that, it is a a road just west of 41 that connects hwy 5 to hwy 7 it runs the lakeshore on the west side of the lake.

No PUBLIC access to Washta from Minnewashta blvd. There is access to lake St. Joe from the blvd.

Is it one of the private beaches maintained by one of the Lake Minnewashta housing associations?

It would be sweet if their was still a public access on that side of the lake. Used to be a resort/bait shop that allowed access over there. That was turned into residential houses years ago.

It is a public access. Fishing pier sits there in the summer. You can park west of Minnewashta Pkwy and have to cross it to get to the lake.

      Sorry, don't remember TJ Hooker.  Besides I make it a practice to avoid hookers....  (rim shot)

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
