      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 .

If you live in crosby I hear that a lake in trommald is loaded with them so I would try the deep water out there to start out. Let me know if you try and how you do I have been wanting to try that lake. Other than that try some deep spots on the big lakes. I hear we can't say the name of small lake otherwise I have a good one west of brainerd.

yeah, it is suppose to be good but i have never made it out there. I was going to try my luck in march to see what i could get. The DNR site showed some good numbers for that lake.

I heard there have been good size die offs in lakes over the past two years do to the water warming up to high in the summer. We used to fish them on Mille lacs and catch them all day long now your lucky if you get one a year.

thats what i have been hearing too. I know the lake I fish west of brainerd has been netted at least once to stock shamineau so the number in there is way down compared to what the DNR site says. last year it was hit or miss out there but we always caught at least 4 or 5 with some of the best days being around 30 or 40.

I've never had a chance to try the Leech tullibee bite but I have heard alot about it. I only started fishing them 2yrs ago out of bored and have been hooked since. Maybe leech will have a good bite in march this year so I can go try that. 100 or more a day, I would be wore out by the end of the day but is sounds like a blast. Any hints on setup, I use a spoon for flash with a 12in drop line and a small jig tipped with a wax worm?

goggy eyes, come on, I hope your kidding or trying to stir the pot a little...

Cormorants ate all the Tullis, huh?

I suppose they'll get blamed for cleaning out 50" muskies next. I'd venture to guess that the basin East of Stony Point on Leech where most of us have caught them in the "old" days is just a little too shallow with all the warm summers we've been having and since they are a cold water species, lakes w/ shallower water like parts of Leech or Mille Lakes will always have fluctuating populations in warm years.

If you do a little checking you will see that leech lake was hit really hardby the birds.I read articles about the dnr shooting large quanities of the birds. It didn't just hurt the tullibees the walleyes were the hardest hit.I think the water would have to drop a long ways to kill or move fish. Just my thoughts.

I live on Gull Lake and we had a pretty good die off each of the last two years.. Seems like the larger fish did not make it. Most of the dead fish floating were fairly large.

tullies !! what a fish and fun to catch ! yes in the hay day ofthe late 90,s were just that a feeding frenzy with no end ! we did take our share from stonie point then ,could be part of the reason for the laps os fish not being there ? and yes the heat waves we have had along with the black commerants did not help ! there was also a report from the dnr at the time the commerants were being thined out around 1999 thru 2002 of a worm that caused a die off , they were to be infected with them in their gills that killed them off . if you were a diehard tullie fisherman you probably remember this . with all the reasons for theie demise you cant forget about the one that was reported to be from the great minnesote big toothed shark the " MUSKIE " helped to thin them out ? so take your pick as to why they were far and few between ? they will be back and when they do ? the bite will be on again ! djwood fish on and oftyen !

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!
    • Daniel Anderson
      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day
