      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 .

This is in New Brighton off of 694. There's directions in the "Long Lake (N/B)" postings.

It's not too far from Long Lake.

Hey Lost,
If you go to Pike, another spot to try fishing is right in from of the main sewer there is a sandbar, you have to walk throught the woods to get access to it. Usually kids will made a bridge from shore to the bar but if you are wearing sandles the water is only about 6" deep. There are numerous spots down the path more that you are able to fish also. If you are going there Sunday maybe I will swing by and see if your having any luck.

Baswacker, I'm talking about the Pike Lake between Long Lake Rd and Silver Lake Rd in New Brighton. Trust me, it's there. I looked it up on Mapquest.

Went to Medicine today after work.
The French Park area at the canoe docks are putting out some crappies and sunnies. Most of the fish are small, but you can pick through them and make a meal.

But today I took the boat out and fish most of the northern parts of the lake. Man, was that wind strong. Didn't really get into some fish until I fished the back channels leading to French Park. Between the two of us we caught about 40 sunnies and most where pretty good size, some even in the 9" range. Kept some for the fry pan. Only managed 3 crappies and only 1 was nice about 10". Oh, also caught 2 more dogfish "which makes 4 for the yr already" not sure if that's a good sign, but good fights and had something break me off.

All the fish today were in about 2.3'-5' of water and most came on a white flu flu or white tub jig, tip with either a wax worm or BioBait from Catch-N-Tackle green crawler.

Hope this helps and good luck

LOL Baswacker. Normally I am but not this time. I still would need directions to get to most lakes here in the metro area. I hardly know where a lot of the smaller cities and towns are. Obviously I don't get out much.

Pike Lake (in New Brighton) has no public boat access. You can get to it by foot by following a park trail that goes along 694, parking either in the church parking lot (Long Lake Rd) or following Pike Lake Rd (the service rd) off of Silver Lake Rd just up until it starts to curve north.

      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.

      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
    • leech~~
      Plus+1  The size seems to drop off late in the year. Last year bait shops I went to were selling Large as Jumbos and small as large!

      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.
    • gimruis
      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.
    • BringAnExtension
      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!

      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      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.
    • CigarGuy
      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.
