      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 .

Just wondering if anyone has fished this lake. Its just outside of Ogilvie and about 15minutes south of The Pond. Ive fished it this summer and did very well on 8+inch bluegills and some nice pike. Some bluegills up to 10 inches. Very few little ones. Would love to get out there on the ice. Lemme know

Its been a few years, but used to fish it a few times a winter. I remember it being a late afternoon (2-3 pm to dark) bite.

Looking at a map of the lake, it seems like a lake that would have a lot of roaming fish. Looks like it gets to about 9 feet and stays there throughout the whole lake. Punching lots of holes and staying mobile is going to be key out there.

Yeah i noticed how much they move around in the summer, especially the sunnies. But when you get on them its fun and nonstop and there's some huge bluegills in there and they taste great. Thinkin i should definitely head up there one of these weekends and give it a try, wouldnt mind catchin some 12 inch crappies

The river runs through there so the water is really stained. Use your jigs accordingly.

Very hard lake to fish in the winter. I think I said this on another post, if your catching 10" gills why would you post it on a fishing forum?

Just my two cents worth

Very hard to fish in the winter. Pretty much a bowl lake. Panfish could be anywhere.

Cuz people aren't that bright or lack common sense Key...plus I really honestly don't think they are getting sunfish that size, they maybe getting 9"ers but a 10"er to me in central minnesota is hard to come by...not saying they arent there, but they are hard to catch...and I would be tight lipped about it too.

I have talked with a couple of friends that have been out to Ann. You do have to punch a number of holes and the 5:00 bite can be the best time. They both were able to find sunnies to 9" or better, so they are worth pursuing.

      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

For us the only thing that was working leadcore with cranks 18-24fow looks of eaters but not one over 18" couldn't get the digging raps rigs or jog and minnow to go but I'm sure it's not far off caught about half of mine on cranks when I was turning and didn't seem to matter weather the pole was on the inside or outside 2.2 2.4 was our speed flicker shads and deep runner raps #5 and 7. Cliff what style and size of hook do u use for your minnow rigs? Any beads used?

      This weekend near grand marais on thursday and Friday the no see ems were out. A few skeets but once it cooled down the no see ems were gone. Fished a lake that known for horrible bugs and it was not bad.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
