      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 .

Beautiful sunny day on Big Saganaga. Most fish hit tip ups where as a few days earlier not a single flag flew on the same spot. Heres a few of the bigger ones we caught. Actually got a nice walleye also.

Sweet fish! What bait did you get them on with the tip-ups?

stf, got the fish on a mixture of live shiners and suckers. Didn't even try dead bait. The biggest one hit a sucker on a tip-up that I was pulling in to move to a new location. I was holding the tip-up in one hand and spinning the spool with my other when the line wouldn't come up anymore. Took me a couple of seconds to realize what was going on. My first thought was the hook got caught on the bottom of the ice, but when I looked down to see my floro leader nowhere in site, I knew what it was.

All in all an awesome day. Good weather, good company, and lakers. What more could a guy ask for.

Ever venture up this way stf?

You guys sledding in on the corridor? How long a sled ride is it, roughly?

Actually i'm the only one in our little posse that has a sled. So its usually a shuttle system, which I don't mind. The spot we have been fishing is about a 3 mile machine ride and about a half of a mile walk, so not bad at all. I am going to do some more looking around also. I have some similar locations picked out on the map with similar sled rides/walks.

Steve, to add a bit to Tulibee's answer, the Corridor is roughly 5 - 6 miles long from the landing up to the Canadian Border, with many many locations all along the corridor to fish. Tulibee, were you just in for a day trip, or were you there for saturday too? We stayed at VCO for the weekend and fished friday afternoon and saturday until about 2... I suspect we passed your group as we fished a bit further up the trail. Fishing was definitely good before that front moved in on saturday. Cant wait to get back up there this weekend!

Nice work! What's the ice and snow conditions like in that neck of the woods. I'll be up in the area in four weeks, I'd like to get a feel for what it might be like then. I know it's a long ways off and there can be plenty of changes. Ice thickness? Lake travel conditions? In the woods snow depth?

Thanks

Lake travel conditions were great, very little snow and no pressure ridges. Ice was roughly 16 inches where we fished, but that varies widely depending on the lakes depth, water clarity, etc. Not sure how the snow conditions on smaller lakes are but the bigger lakes are pretty good right now.

Tulibee, yeah that dang front blew us right off the lake. Wow, what a wind!

So I just wanted to make sure I understand this. You can run a sled up the corridor, but not off it. To travel off you have to walk.

But you can run a 25 horse motor around most of the lake in the summer right.?

Can a guy run a power auger up on Sag?

You got it, sled on the corridor only. Until you cross into Canada, then you can go anywhere up to the boundary of the Quetico. No motorized augers allowed on the US side though. Smart huh? You can run a snowmobile or a 25 hp outboard but not a power auger or a chainsaw... My recommendation, fish the canadian side after their season is open this weekend. Sled right to your spot and you can use the power auger.

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.
    • Reel_Magic
      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update
    • Rancid Crabtree
      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there. 
    • gimruis
      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious
