      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.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....

      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
