      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 .

Long Lake

Heading up to Long Lake near Glen for the weekend. Anybody have any info or general locations for some panfish/walleyes? Friend has a cabin on the north end by the access. Have fished it a couple times before in the winter and have got a few pike on tip-ups, but nothing too special. Any info would be great, will post when I get back.

I've been up there a couple of times and got a few pike, as well as a few bass. Last time I fished there was some terrible wind, had to build snow walls around the tip-ups to try to keep them from getting snowed in. Was fishing west of the deep hole. Sound familiar?

Long Lake was a former Granite Quarry back in the early 19th century. They dug down and hit water and flooded the quarry. The water is deep and very clear. I have fished it for years but have not had a lot of luck there. There are a few crappies and some sunfish and yeah you can pick up a northern or two. Every once in awhile you can even find a walleye by some miracle??

A better option for walleyes is Dam lake across the road from Long Lake. Abpout 5 years ago the DNR stocked Dam with walleyes and it is now starting to produce some nice catches. I posted about Dam back in December when someone asked me about it.

I have a friend who lives on the Dam Lake year round and as my parents have a cottage on Clear Lake at Glen I stopped by from fishing panfish on Clear. My friend said they were catching walleyes off the point on the South side of the lake near the resort there in about 25-35 FOW. Dam also has good size crappies, sunfish and decent size perch.

GO ahead and try Long if you want. Who knows you might have good luck. There is a whole in Long that is over 100 feet deep. I never understood why if it has holes like that the DNR never stocked it with Lakers? But then I never understood the DNR anyway. Good Luck! Tignt Lines.

Thanks for the info UncleKes, I'm going to be up there with Perch Lips this weekend, and I'm sure we'll hit up Dam after your info. We'll be sure to post how we did.

Thanks again!

Well we tried to hit up Dam on Friday night, but got there a little later than expected and didn't really have enough time to explore and find anything. We set up off the point by the resort, and just couldn't find the right spot with such big changes in the depth. Tried our luck on Saturday morning on Long Lake to no avail, and Saturday afternoon hit Lilly Lake between Dam and Long and found a couple of gills and hammer handle pike. All in all a fun trip, but nothing noteworthy in the fishing department. Thanks for the tips farmfishing and UncleKes.

Sorry you had such a miserable trip, Snoot! I would NOT give up on Dam Lake though. There are a couple of other nice places up in that area I can let you know about. Email me at UncleKes@comcast.net and I will let you know.

Tight lines!

Have spent a lot of time on long lake in the past. Even had a fish house out in front of the landing just a few years ago. There is decent tip up fishing around the landing for pike. Plenty of hammer handles to go around. Need to look around the deeper water for crappies. We used to do good out on the main part of the lake. Just need to get the mercom out at look around for schools of fish. I wouldnt even drill a hole until you can see them on the flasher.

Dam lake has plenty of crappies also. You are going to sort threw a lot of small ones. Dam is very good for pike fishing but again most are hammer handles.

Lily used to be a good pan fish lake. Most likely still is as it does not seem to see much pressure. I may be up on long lake next weekend looking for crappies.
