      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 have heard some good things about this lake and wanted to give it a try, but I looked on the DNR lake finder and couldn't find a lake map, The lake looks pretty long and skinny, what is there for depth and structure on this lake? thanks!

According to a book of maps i purchased the bulk of the lake is between 5 and 7 feet, except the southeast end runs between 10 and 16 feet with a max depth of 16 feet.

Lake hanska has quite a bit of structure. It is all man made. It went thru a couple different dredgings a few years back.

I fish the lake often, but don't know it that well yet. Not like deltahunter, riverrat, and few others.

Unfortunately the walleye bite, has slowed to a trickle after the thaw a few weeks ago. And a trickle is putting it mildly!

No map avalable now shows all the structure after the dredging was completed. I've seen a map of the east end, and believe it is somewhat accurate. But sense the map was made a lot more dredging had been done west of the co. park. And no maps are avalable for the west end at all. At least I have not been able to find any. And I have looked. I even talked to some guys that worked the dredge hoping to find even a dredge guide map. But so far I have struck out.

The lake has 2 airation systems. 1 on the east end out from the co. park, and the other on godahl point towards the west end. I have not been out there for a few days, but did hear that the one at godahl has been turned on. Not sure about the east end thou.

Anything at all happening over there on Hanska? Delta? Any updates?

My wife is taking off for the weekend and I am looking for a place to take my two boys (7 & 3) for a weekend of living on the ice and hopefully put a couple of eyes in the bucket.

If not Hanska, anyone have some other ideas?

Thanks

During this cold snap the eyes seem to really slow down out there!! But don't get me wrong if you get out there and fish you will more than likely catch some, by some I mean a one here or there! The only thing I can tell you is that if you get the time to get out there and find some structure to fish where no one else is around you will probably have some luck! If you fish by the crowds you will more than likely be looking at your holes for hours without a bit or one or two bites. It is really slow this time a year! If you want more info shoot me an email at jkamrath@hotmail.com! I will try to point you in the right direction!!!

Those great Hanska bullheads won't let you go home without a bite.

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
