      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 .

Panfish on Fish Lake?

Recommended Posts

Fish- N- Hunt

I was planning on bringing my daughter out fishing on Sunday, it seems to be the only way the wife will let me go. I want to try Fish lake (maple grove area), But really have no idea where to even start. I hope I can find some action for her, any help or information would be appreciated.

Thanks

Try all along the same side as where the beach is at. Fish the shoreline from the big fishing pier all the way to the beach. I've had a fair amount of luck with the crappies there (lived about 2 miles from there until i moved by tonka), I've found very few keepers there but hope fully it will be enough to keep your daughter busy

Thanks for the info, i'll probably start there and see if i can get a few. my gf's house is the one directly across from the fishing pier so itll be easy enough to access. were you using plain hooks with minnows or did you have some kind of a jig on there? thanks for the help i really appreciate it, now im getting excited for the weekend

Honestly i'm a pretty crappy crappie fisherman,(no pun intended) I typicaly use just a minnow and a bobber or a flu flu and a waxie, thats basically all, I think i was just using a bobber and a minnow

Hey guys, I currently go to the U of M and love to fish crappies and plan on heading out to Fish Lake this weekend. I am lucky enough to have access to her dad's canoe so i will be out in that but i was wondering if anyone could tell me if the back channels are any good. i canoed around the lake the other day and found a feew spots id like to try and that channel with all the piers and some downed trees looked promising. also you say along the shore from the fishing pier to the beach is pretty deep there, i was wondering if you could tell me how deep you usually fish them there?? any info would gladly be appreciated and i will definitely post on how i do this weekend assuming i get out. if you would like to email me some info my email is bert0169@umn.edu thanks again guys for any help! good luck

Hopefully fish n hunt will report back how he did out there this weekend and maybe be able to give you some ideas. When i would fish from the pier to the beach I would fish about 6-8 feet (bobber fish ) in between the weeds. If you find a good pocket of them you can catch a ton but did not find many keepers whatsover (maybe it was before the females got in there so hopefully you;ll have better luck then I did)

Well i went out in search of crappies this weekend, but the water really cleared up and i couldnt seem to find them. i fished in the channel that is across from the beach and caught some nice bass while fishing for crappies. Also caught a couple of monster bluegills on minnows, but no crappies. any help on where to find them would be appreciated. thanks.

I lived on this lake from 4th grade up through high school. I also fished it periodically until my parents sold the house 4 years ago. Before it got fully developed, it was one hell of a lake to fish. We used to pull very good bass and pike out of there on a regular basis.

We always had to sort through the panfish to get keepers, but there was always plenty of action.

We always got the biggest bass in the early morning hours, working the docks and sandy shores adjacent to weedlines with plastic worms and topwaters or rapala shallow divers worked like a topwater.

We got big pikeon the deep weedlines by the park. This was before the access (or the milfoil)was there, however.

I'm thinking of throwing the canoe in there a couple of times this summer to see how much it's changed.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
