      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 .

Recommended Posts

It seems that nobody fishes Lower Cullen anymore.

I guess that's good in ways but I would really like some info about what's happening out there this year.

I'm in the St' Cloud area and don't make it up that way very often, but I want to get up and give it a whirl.

It's one of my favorite lakes...everyone has 'em!

Somebody drive by the d*mn thing and let me know what is happening, better yet, get out there for a day and check it out for me.. HA HA!

Any info is GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Thanks!

not to mention I have posted a couple of times this year about the lake and no replies.

maybe I should take that as a hint and just do it regardless of ice condition!

Our ice conditions are pretty good all over. I haven't been out there myself and was hoping someone would reply with first hand experience. But I have heard a couple of reports. Sound like they are getting a few crappies not a lot but a few. A few pike too. I think with the walleyes still plugging away on Gull thats where most anglers have been. Usually when the walleyes shut down they switch over to crappies. I'm guessing that'll happen real soon. You'll start to read more crappie reports in the next couple of weeks.

Sometimes it's hard to "read" sarcasm. It sounded rude when I read it too. Now days with people asking for GPS coodinates to hot spots and all,,,,,,

I took it as sarcasim but it usually doesn't translate well over the computer......but I noticed he had asked about this lake a little while back and there never is a reply.....but I took that as I should check this lake out as nobody wants to talk about a hotbite while it is happening right!! Good Luck this weekend...I will be searhcing for crappies from 6 to Gull this weekend on some of the local lakes......

I read it for what it was... sarcasm. I thought it was loud and clear. Daddyducker helped me out with information that helped me catch fish last summer and I'd be glad to help if I knew anything. But I don't know squat... sorry.

Not trying to start anything guys, I'm just old school I guess, when I go fishing I just grab my stuff and go see what I can find. When reading all the posts on various sites it just seems that people want exact locations and details etc. If you have lived in this area all of your life and have seen the growth you would understand more.

Good Luck.

Lunger...sorry I blew up.

I was coming back with sarcasm as well as the original post.

If I was mad/rude to someone on here, they would probably just have to boot me off of the site completely.

I hear what you are saying about the area and sometimes I feel the same way about people wanting you to hold their hand and almost punch their holes for them, but I have to keep in mind that most every one on here asking about info, has at the least fished the area, maybe not the perticular lake but the area.

It's American nature; to get as much as possible for free.

And just so I am clear with everyone else...if I have any info that is beneficial, I will give it. I may not give you my honey hole but I will give you tips and safety type info.

Daddyducker, I got out there yesterday and did pretty good. The fish were 2 to 3 to a lb. Nothing to brag about but iced enough keepers for a meal and tossed some back.

Hey that's awesome.

I made it out this past Sat. morning and it was tough.

I found them, read them but couldn't hardly buy one.

Glad to see that the ice is good enough to drive on.

It looks like maybe a full sized truck could make it out but there is about 4 in. of white ice on top from the slush.

Everything below that though is good.

I might have been off the "spot" abit but the fish weren't hitting anything real good.

The key seemed to be "if they would chase they would usually hit.

I picked up 3 in about 2-2 1/2 hrs.

Don't know about you DUCKJ, but they were anywhere from 6 to 15' off the bottom.

The ones further up was all that I could entice.

Good luck!!

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.
    • Chill62
      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
