      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 .

Typo lake traditional ice conditions

Recommended Posts

Chester-MN

This is the Typo that lays just north of Linwood lake in East Bethal/Wyoming.

I really am just looking to see if it is a lake with the history of people driving on it or if people leave trucks at the access so I know what to bring and what I should leave home. I'd hate to find out the hard way that people drive around certain parts (or not at all) of the lake because of traditionally unsafe ice conditions.

Nice call, I totally agree. I grew up around there and always considered Typo a pond; it's funny to see all the interest in it lately.

Years ago, (I mean back in the 60's and 70's) people discovered Typo. Back then it was a great little lake for panfish and the odd walleye. However, over the years like so many metro lakes it has been fished out. I don't think anyone fishes it anymore. At least not seriously. Their may be a stray crappie or sunfish in their but they will probably be very stunted. After the panfish declined the carp and suckers too over.

Not that I am against carp. They fight hard and properly prepared can be as tasty as walleye. But it would be nice to see the lake closed down for a few years to let the panfish and other species come back a bit.

I fished this lake last year and caught a few eyes in it. They were small but fun to catch. The DNR used it as a rearing pond and that was why there was some eyes in there. Sounds like some people are trying to keep others away from it.

It isn't nor was it ever a rearing pond. The DNR actually stocks it on purpose for walleye fishing. Why I don't know. Apparently they found some one year that had swam up from Martin. Last, and only, time I was out there I churned mud with the small boat I was in. All I found was 4 feet of water.

It was a great little walleye lake at one time until everybody started flapping there lips about it and they fished it out. Taking there limits out of it every day ,it doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out that it wont last long!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
