      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 .

Schilling lake

I was driving around yesterday and noticed about 10 houses out on Schilling lake by New Auburn. Anyone heard if they are getting anything out there or is it just a bunch of kids doing what kids do?

Any numbers to it or is it just an occasional fish or two. I've been looking for a place to set up a couple flags in the area. Is it worth my time?

Any kind of depth or structure out there? I'm assuming it's a bowl like most other lakes in the area. Not asking for a secret spot, just if the lake is worth exploring. I'm new to the area and trying to figure it all out.

Probably migrants from Buffalo Creek is my guess.

I've got a friend who has been out there several times in the past week and I joined him this past Tuesday. We didn't see a fish Tues. and he has speared three fish in six trips out there. For whatever reason the pike don't seem to bite if you angle for them but they are coming in to spearing decoys and it is by no means fast and furious action. It certainly is strange seeing ice houses on this lake though.

I thought it looked funny too! I wonder if the lake has any springs to keep it from freezing out? With what I've heard about the size most of these fish have to be 4-5 years old or older. I wonder if they stay in the lake year round or if they just migrate there from the creek at certain times of the year.

Since I'm fairly new to the area can anyone tell me if the conecting creek from Buffalo Creek to the lake is open year round? If so I might try to venture there this Sunday.

The connecting creek is very tiny and it is usually dried up by the middle of June in a normal year. It is dry right now and it empties into one of the shallower areas of the lake.

Yup, the creek coming in is a ditch. I may have shot a few ducks on that lake, but never caught a fish out there yet.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.
