      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 .

Mitchell/ Big Lake

Recommended Posts

Busdrivers33

First of all, anyone having any luck out there? Sure is alot of people out there these days.

The main reason about my post is that I have a cousin who lives on Mitchell. Right on lake drive or Hiawatha or whatever it is down that way. Anyway, theres some people that access the lake next to his shoreline, and in the past he has seen them throwing rocks and [PoorWordUsage] on the ice from shore. Know we don't know for sure who did this, but whoever it was left wood, cardboard, beer cans and 5 northern down on the shoreline. If your going to keep the northern, then fillet them, not leave them on shore. Along with your garbage, its pathetic. IMO some people shouldn't be allowed a fishing liscense.

It's an awesome lake - clear, lots of great structure and prominent weedlines.

I have lived in Big lake for 20 years and the fishing is nothing to brag about. everyone once and awhile i hear of someone catching a walleye or a few small crappies. I saw a picture of a guy who caught a 30" walleye about a month ago. first ice out I know a guy who fishes crappies and does pretty good with the size. some around the 12" range. unless you have a lot of time and a lot of beer dont bother!

yes, in general it's a slow fishing lake... not a bad thing however if like me you fish to unwind... and it's _really_ clear... I check clarity thru the ice with a weighted glowstick on a string... I could ever so faintly see it on the bottom in twenty FOW. I have got to get my aqua vu working~ \:\)

my aqua vu shows lots and lots of 4 inch bluegills. nothing any bigger or smaller, which disturbs me. I did see a couple of perch which I am glad to see.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.
