      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 .

Goose Lake chain

Recommended Posts

mnwild

I have noticed quite a few houses out on the last lake on this chain of lakes from Goose. The lake I am talking about is

Robour (pronounced Rowbar)just wondering if anyone on this site has been fishing out there. I fished it alot in the summertime and caught some very nice sunnies and crappies. Fished once so far in the winter and am heading up there this saturday. Does anyone know what is going on out there??

In the words of the moderator.

"we try and keep the smaller lakes on the down low...

We (fishingminnesota.com) does'nt want to be responsible for the over harvest of a lake.

Check smaller lakes for yourself .."

Mabey I'm wrong, but would'nt this lake be considered "a smaller lake".

BYW, I do not fish this lake.

It is a small lake, and it already is overfished. Unfortuneatly, the small lakes get outed on forums like this and are easily pirated by thousands of people. In the past, I have put in a lot of time and effort to find these gems. It used to be a guy would have to write or call the DNR for lake info, go to little lakes and spend some time (sometimes fruitlessly due to things like winterkill), and even keep working a lake even though past results were worthless. In my opinion, this was the most fun part-catching fish is great, but beating the odds is a bigger rush. Now, all folks have to do is a little homework on the net, and can pretty much find a spot electronically. I love this site, but at the same time I kind of hate it.

John,

I am with you. I love talking about the techniques and equipment here, but I hate to see someone gain insight to lakes that guys like you and me put hours into finding over the years. I think every fisherman is naturally greedy, and no doubt I am. I want the bite I found to myself.

I still fish for the thrill of the chase. A joke between the group I fish with is, "We did good on that lake last weekend, so let's go somewhere else." I still live that even though I don't have as much time to really find that obscure bite as I used to.

Sorry guys if I let the cat out of the bag on this. From reading it seems some of you know where this lake is and some dont. To get there I dont know the names of the roads just know from memory what turns to take out of Cambridge. I was a rookie to this lake at the begining of summer, and it pretty much took me all summer to find certain spots on this lake know ceratin depth and drops, so I know where you guys are coming from when you find these litte lakes.0 This lake I believe is 46 acres if I remember right. I didnt make it up there this past weekend wont get back up there until Feb 23rd, In Mexico all next week fishing, golfing and relaxing. Again sorry guys about this.

It is sad we all can't enjoy these lakes because most of us are all about catch and release,I understand it just takes a couple of 'fish hogs' to ruin a good thing.John and Ray are correct,I will not post on small waters in the future,I see the error of my ways,and in no way want too have these small water gems get punished and overfished.

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
    • Bigfatbert
      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!
