      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 dont think that everyone is worried to give up their secret spots, so I would not go jumping to conclusions. I have just moved to the area less than a year ago, and from what I can tell 75% of the winter fishing is done in the Walker Bay area. I have heard the fishing on the main lake had been slower, but has picked up a little as of late. I would suggest that if you are inquiring how the fishing is close to the Anderson/Northland lodge area to pick up the phone and give them a call. That way you can get the reports straight from the horses mouth.

I think the problem with your question is that you are asking about a huge area that doesn’t see the fishing pressure some of the more accessible areas do.

We have a place on the West shore at the South end. Haven’t been up yet this Winter, but will be up in a couple of week. Where we fish is dependent on ice condition, including pressure ridges; can’t always get to where we want to go. There are a number of small pop-ups along the South shore from West to East and several bays. All of these areas could have a potential for success.

Prospect with a good lake map and pick some potential good structure. If you are staying at one of the resorts, they should be able to narrow down the search.

chris3, i kind of have preference to staying at there resort because they have been really good to us in the past. we use to do the tullibbee off of stoney but found a decent spot near there place. the tullibee days are past, had to many, but we would like to spend a few days up there to spear some nords catch some perch or a few eyes, i would kind of like to know if that area could produce some of these fish species and not travel real far from there. depending the conditions i have either sleds or ayv to get around. its something my wife and i want to to if not this year next tear for sure. any infowould be really appreciate it. thanks.

Chris:

Just got up tonight. Were you set up on Marshal Point or closer in to Uram? Moving to 1st point east of Northland (Black Diamond, Third Rogers. Northland reef, or whatever it is called), or ¼ mile east of northland?

Have you been on the humps (pop-ups) between Marshal & Rogers Point/Pipe Island?

Our neighbors usually set up on the humps east of Grassy Point. Haven’t talked to them yet so I don’t know where they have set up this year or how they have been doing. Any update will be greatly appreciated.

Once I get out on the lake and have a couple of days behind me I will post my results.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
