      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 .

Lake Sarah

I've never fished this lake before, and had a few questions:

Where is the aerator? I'll be driving my truck and would like to stay away from it...

Is there a baitshop nearby?

Where can I access the lake?

I'll be after walleye, perch, and/or crappie....whatever is biting.

Thanks!

The aerator is on the SW side of the lake near a park. It is staked off "big-time" and not hard to miss. Bait is a tough one; not much for availability other than Rick's. As far as where to access the lake, there is an access on the E end off of Hwy. 59 and then another on the W end, which is more involved from a direction stand-point.

Shooter, there is a bait store about 3 miles south on 59, Captin Blys, otherwise you go another mile or so and right on the curves there is petes corner, they both have bait. Depending on where your coming from, I think the one in Tracy is still open, its attatched to the red rooster cafe, stick to the county park area on the west side of the lake, thats probably your best bet for crappies, we fished the first bayto the southeast of the county park and had some luck with perch. I would suggest the west access, thats where the aerator is. Good luck!!

Tanner, that place has been closed for some time now. No Fuel, no LP, no bait. Rooster is still open but that attached Cenex is closed. The other places mentioned are good to go as well as C-store in Currie if coming from that direction.

Shooter, Here's the scoop.

The airator is by the county park, east of the landing. It is VERY well marked. If you miss it, you shouldn't be driving.

Baitshops- If you are coming from the north, let me recommend Ricks taxidermy and bait shop in Minneota. Rick will not let you down. In the local area there is Captain Bly's off of HWY 59 south of the lake, and Pete's Corner on the corner of HWY 59 and HWY 30, more south of the lake. If you don't hit Rick's I recommed Pete's corner.

There are 3 public access. If you come from HWY 59, look for the signs that say "County Park." The northernmost/east landing can be accessed from the north side of Sarah, look for the sign, off HWY 59. This will bring you to the east side of the lake. The other 2 landings are off of CTY 16, look for the signs. Once you hit 16 you will turn towards the county park, or go to the next gravel road, can't miss them.

Sarah is a good lake for Walleye, crappie, perch, cats, and bullheads. If you want perch and eyes, I'd say go to the east side, north of the point, and drill a ton of holes. Fish a hole for aboot 5 minutes. If no luck, move. Crappies are best on the southwest side, a little north of the dam. south of the airator signs.

Tip from boilerguy.........This lake is very clear which is unusual for SW Minnesota. I've caught a lot of nice fish from this lake but remember how clear the water is. The fish are skittish, even with almost 30 inches of ice. If you mark fish, or see them on a camera, and tap your foot on the ice, they are gone. Stealth mode is the key.

The night bite for eyes is picking up on the west side, north of the county park.

Don't go sayin you didnt' get good info from FM!!! \:\)

Let's see some pictures!!!

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      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
