      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 .

Fishing on Red Rock in E.P.

Was out on red rock this morning from about 10am-2pm. Walked out to the center on the north end and caught a lot of small sunfish and a few nice crappie. Does anyone know if there is a better spot for bigger crappies on the lake? I was in 10 FOW, should I try the 16' hole??? Not looking for your honey hole just some pointers as it was my first time fishing the lake today...

Check out this link Here it has some info. I was out there on Sunday and caught a few sunnies and bass in the south bay. There were a few houses off the point to the north. The DNR map shows the north end to be slightly deeper.

Hope that helps.

Hey Pikeguy,

I was out there on Saturday too. Were you in a house? Were you the guy on the 4 wheeler? I was with a buddy in the guide just north of the point (black Pickup next to the house). I fish on the SE side of the hole in anywhere from 5-10 FOW. This has proven to be the best setup for crappies. I have been migrating towards the hole moreso this year, but it has proven ineffective so far. I may need to start wandering back towards shore. Good luck and keep us posted on what you catch.

Curtis

P.S. I may be heading out there today, sometime in the afternoon, if you are out and see me, stop by and say hello.

Squirtis, I was in the Clam 2000 with the black jet sled.. I was also off the north point in about 10 FOW, Did you drive your truck out? I think you were there after me cause I didn't see any trucks on the ice when I left. I am going out tommarow morning so i'll post the results then!

Yep, I have a black Tundra. I drove out around 11:30 or 12 with a buddy, and then also went back to the launch to pick up the wife and her friend to show them the house. We had a good hit on our jigging rod with a northern, but nothing after that. That was within the first 15 minutes.

I was out yesterday afternoon and had a couple of nice hits by northerns, but I couldn't set the hook. I wonder if they might be bent.

Good luck today if you go out, let me know how you do.

I would really like to give Red rock a try because I live so close. Is the only place to access the park on the south end?

Yep, take Mitchell north off of Pioneer Trail and head to Blakeney Rd, take a left and the park is straight ahead at the 'T'. There is a pretty good trail heading out on the ice from the launch and there is 15" of pretty good ice out there too. Just stay on the beat down path and you should be fine.

Good luck,

Curtis

Unfortunately I didn't make it out this morning, I ended up driving the wife to work and then got called into work myself for a few hours, so I didn't make it... I am going to try and get out there on Sunday after work(5:30 or so) with a buddy. Hows the panfish bite after dark? You think I would be alright driving out in a 2x4 ranger? If anyones out there we'll be in a clam 5600 and a white blazer or my silver ranger, stop but and sat hi! Good Fishin'

PikeGuy, you should be alright out there in the truck. I have been driving my Tundra out there for about a week. There is a pretty beaten down trail out to the main part of the lake too, so the snow shouldn't be much of a problem. There is a pretty consistant panfish bite and I saw the crappies come on about 4. Bring some crappie minnows and maybe some wax worms or larvae and you should be able to keep busy. Good luck and let us know how you do.

No Problem Chuckwagon,

I have gotten them on a Custom Jigs and Spoons blue jigging spoon with a red treble and shiner (Medium sized), and a glow in the dark Lindy jigging spoon also with a shiner. I caught a nice 4lb bass a couple of weeks ago on the tipup with a simple quick strike rig and a shiner.

Good luck out there and let us know what you bring up the hole.

Fished for about an hour and half until sunset on 1/6/08. Sunnies were plentiful but smaller than previous years. Had to do a lot of sorting to make a meal. Seems like Red Rock may have finally succumbed to the heavy pressure of the past few years. Did catch a 2 lb. bass on a tip up, and missed a northern that took my sucker for a ride.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
