      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 .

There is nothing but little pike in Medicine. Really, they are all small. The 38 inchers I have caught out there and the 42 Med Man caught were anomalies

Actually I was being sarcastic. It's hard to do that on here I guess! Sorry! Alot of our metro lakes are GREAT pike fisheries. People do need to practice catch and release.

Don't forget about Calhoun, Harriet, and the like!!!

Medicine is one of the best Pike lakes I've ever fished, but she's real tricky. Its either feast or famine. First off, there is no weedline as of now. The DNR has been spraying chemical to rid the lake of Curly Leaf Pondweed the past 2 weeks. A lot of the Northerns are scattered throughout the lake. I've seen Northerns anywhere from 2-30 feet. The fish are bound by nothing. Theres enough oxygen in the lake for them to roam anywhere. Once Mid-June rolls around, oxygen depletion starts playing a part in fish location. This will help fishng a lot because they'll be confined to certain areas. But note: Once the water temp gets too warm, the majority of the fish you catch will be smaller. Unless you're out fishing right before a front comes throught, then you'll catch bigger fish 'cause they'll be on a feeding binge. I've had pretty good success out on Medicine so far this year. I've caught at least 1 30+ inch Northern everytime I've gone out.

Medicineman can you give me a general area to focus on. I thought i would throw some #4 mepps, some little cleos, buzzbaits, spinnerbaits, etc. What do you think?

I would try the islands that have weed growth on them. The milfoil is starting to come up and there are 4 islands that hold pike year round because of their weed growth. Basically, if you find an area with a fair amount of weeds, you'll find Pike. The water is a good 5 degrees warmer right now than it was at this time last year. Fish are moving into their summer patterns about a month earlier than usual. I wish I could be a little more specific but I've spent much of my day doing stuff for college next year. My mind really isn't on fishing right now.

As for bait, I would try trolling Rapalas. You can cover lots of area. Plus by doing this you can locate active fish.

OK Hammer

We caught several over 30 inches that day.
Including GJ's 38.

Seriously though, that was 4 years ago. The last couple years have not provided the quantity and quality.

I hope people are lettin' them bigguns go back.

OK,

Make me feel bad for trying to have a little fun………

Yes there are big pike in Medicine. Troll the weed lines and you to shall get your carpet all slimy! Can’t give away all my secrets though. You will have to figure out which lures work best for your fishing style. Have fun and put the big ones back!
