      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 used to fish this lake all the time until some B-hole yelled at me claiming the lake was private! He also said that he would call the cops if he saw my truck parked out there again. The fishing is awesome, and i would love to get out there again without being hassled by owners. Where do you guys park and where do you go out from?

Right down from the school you use to beable to drive on the lake untill they dropped huge rocks there.. What you have to now is drive down past that spot and there is a road on the left hand side (Not Sure Name Of it), but you can drive on the lake down there. You have to go through the small channel to get back out on the big lake pulled a 14lbs northern last winter. Good Luck... Lots of hammer handles !!!!!!!! Good Luck

They also added a barbed wire fence there now, according to the DNR they said that you could access it here due to the high water mark, but the city of HUGO has declaired it a no parking/loading zone due to the small road there. Kinda sucks but Eh ohwell ..anyone know of a house that they are selling in the area?

You can only fish this lake in the winter, unless in the summer you want to park on the nearest highway and walk really far. There is another lake/pond that is connected to it, in the winter it freezes and people park on that lake. Nothing illegal about parking on a lake, all water is public. You can either park on that lake, walk or use a sled or atv and reach north and south school section. I was there last weekend and decided to drive my vehicle through the bay and reach School Section. Ice was around 12-14 inches everywhere. There was a lot of 1/2 tons driving on top of the lake also. Good luck and stay safe.

I don't understand why people say don't fish this lake. Some of my best winter crappies come out of there, plenty of nice size pick and even my largest bass since leaving Arizona a 22 inch largemouth last year. Try the southern section where the tree line is for some fun. Good luck.

I can't give you a recent report, as I haven't been there lately, but the Sunday I was there I got some sunnies and crappies. Most of them are your usually stunted metro crappies and sunnies. I caught a few keeper sized ones but all fish were released. That lake experiences winter kill almost every year, but it bounces back quick. I know it gets crazy pressure in the winter. If you want something for size there are better lakes around that area.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
