      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 .

A guy I work with lives on Swartout, and they have been harvesting carp out there for the last few weeks. I'm not sure the actual amount they've taken out or what they are doing with them.

That sounds like a lot of carp for Swartwatts Lake. I don't understand the effort. It's all and attempt to clean up Cedar Lake but every spring the carp come upstream from Cedar trying to get into Swartwatts. Doesn't that mean Cedar has the carp problem, or even Clearwater? Maybe I don't understand the whole deal.

I'm pretty familiar with the whole Cedar Lake water quality plan. The reason they want to reduce the carp in the upper watershed lakes such as Swartout is to reduce the nutrient output from these waters. Carp tend to stir up bottom sediments, thus stirring up phosphorus from the sediment into the water column and it flows into Cedar Lake. The thought is, if there are less bottom-feeding fish such as carp in the lake, the phosphorus that is settled in the sediment will be less likely to be stirred up into the water column. So that is the reasoning behind it.

I guess the rumor is true. The Annandale Advocate said 20-ton of carp were netted in Swartwatts Lake. Most of them were in the two pound range. They might try it again because they say there is lots they did not get. I cant believe that many carp can be in that lake. The lake used to freeze out every so often but with mild winters the last ten years or so I guess the carp took advantage.

That is really crazy considering the huge crappies that came out of Swartwatts the last two years. I'm sure they were fished out as there have been vertually no houses out there this winter. Am I thinking of the right lake? Off hwy 6? My inlaws have a place on Cedar, and anything they can do to improve that lake's sport fishing the better. Carp/bow-fisherman have plenty of ditches to use during the spring to hammer those carp. Not to mention a ton of smaller lakes like Albion & Swartwatts. 20 tons... 40,000lbs of carp averaging 2lbs a piece. 20,000 fish ... that's believable.

Yeah, you have the right lake. A couple years ago I heard the rumors of huge crappies. I couldn't hardly believe since I grew up on Swartwatts and never knew of much for fish in the lake besides rough fish. But, the rumor of crappies spread fast and I think they got most of them in one winter. I fished it once for crappies and got three. One small, one keeper, and one big one that got off at the hole. I should have stuck my hand down to land the fish but I was unsure of what might come up!

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.
