      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 .

What happened to the med thread. I've been out of town since Monday . Anyone been out there? I didnt see the med thread except for the get together. Mabey I just missed it. I don't know if I'll be out this weekend. I think I am boatless. My brother is borrowing the boat.
Med man are you back? I did fairly well last weekend out in the usual spots, No eyes but about everything else.

Well looks like tomorrow morning is a go. My bro couldnt get the fam together early enough and decided not to take the boat. I am planning on the usual 5am or so start. Going to try and get tires finally so only be out until 9:30 or so. Probably will repeat but stay a little later on Sunday morning depending.
Yeah ebass. I still have your frabill bucket. Cant believe we havent fished together since Red Wing, back when it was still cold out!

Tim

I was on a med cruise yesterday with CrappieMagnet, turns out we are old aquaintences from "back in the day". Anyway we met at Harty's and then got on the lake and hit sunnies for about 4 hours solid. Threw a lot more back than we kept. Fish about 8 Ft deep with natural colored platics on a 16th or 32nd oz jig and a bobber.

Hey Ebass, whats you're new trick? I don't fish the islands exclusively. I fish all over the lake. I am just more fond of the islands then other areas of the lake.

Were you out fishing the humps? I was out there and one other boat came out to that area and was still there when I left. I was going to see if it was anyone from fm because I knew crappie magnet was out in that spot last weekend and thought it might have been him. I didnt know because I havent met him. Joe said he was there. I was in the little 12'. I did ok with some nice crappies and a northern around 30". Another nice morning thats for sure. I left around 9. I thought the rain was coming later and didnt bring the gear. My legs were too cold and wet.

Went out Sunday night from 5:15 to 8:30. Trolled Raps along shore in 10 to 18 feet. Caught around a dozen northerns and two bass. Shad color seemed to work the best. Raps running about 10 to 12 feet down. Felt good to get out. Can't wait to do it again.

Went out from 5-12 this morning. I ended up with 14 Bass and 8 Northerns. All the Bass were between 4-6 pounds, and all the Northerns were between 24-34 inches.

I went out last night (Tuesday). It was like rush hour at the access. I think I'll stick to am and early afternoon fishing.
Fishing was slow to say the least. Found a couple of those humps you guys talk about and caught a couple. Let them all go as usual.
Hey Med Man, what's your favorite presentation for your bass and northerns?
You can email me at olepresley@aol.com
Thanks,
Ole

Ole, I don't really have a favorite presentation. When I was out on tuesday I caught fish on 12 different lures/presentation styles. I am a big fan of crankbaits though. Trolling cranks is a good way of locating active fish.

Heres a few pics of fish I've caught this year. I've got a lot more, but I'm only going to post a few. The first two are of me, the last one is of a friend of mine.

Oh yeah, I was gonna say that we caught 14 Crappies that day, all between 12-14 inches. We caught them while we were trolling #10 Deep Down Husky Jerks for Northerns.

Med Man,
Thanks for the tip. I really haven't gotten in to crankbaits much as I keep coming up with lots of weeds. But that's where the fish are! I'll have to get a little more serious about it and give it more time. Do you primarily throw those outside the weed edge or inside? You said you troll a lot? Any tips about that?
Thanks,
Ole

Ole, I couldn't tell you how to fish the weeds since never fish the weeds. The last time I trolled a weedline on Medicine was on opener. There is no real "weedline" on Medicine as of now. All there is are patches of weeds in Medicine. Theres a stretch on the south end of the lake where there is a large patch of weeds. I would look for bottom content changes or points or underwater islands etc.... Medicine has tons of structure too fish. I suggest getting a good map and study the lake.

Well took a break from the roofing side work today and gave the old pond another go 'round. It was a bit brisk at 5am. I ended up with the rain pants and life jacket on to try and conserve a little warmth. Yeah, I'm a puss. Stopped in and talked to Joe to warm up a touch. Fishing was slow. No norts or bass but caught a half dozen crops 10-12".

Geez Moby, you are a total wuss. But yet you went out ice fishing on that day when the actual air temp was -24 degrees and the wind chill was -34. That doesn't quite make sense? wink.gif

Thanks for the tip!
What's a good map for Med.? I have the Sportsmen's connection west metro book of lakes but it's very general and misses a lot of structure.
I found one of those sunken islands (or humps) and caught a few bass on crankbaits. It was kind of hard throwing between the tubers and the jetskier's but I managed before I ducked into shallower waters.
May your worm keep wiggling!
Ole

Ole, the best map out there of Medicine is made by Fishing Hot Spots. I've seen this brand of map at Gander Mountain and Fleet Farm. But still, this map still has plenty of flaws. But its by FAR better than the map you have.

I know but I was prepared and in a house with a heater. I was unprepared Monday. I hope to be done roofing by saturday. I stuck it out for 4 hours in drizzle last night after work. I should be done in a couple of days if the weather is decent.

Ole the key to avoiding the skiers, at least most of them (there are always a couple out by 8am)is to get a couple hours of quality fishing in before they come out. I prefer 5am-10 or 11.

Went out yesterday from 9-6, my paps went out with me at 3. We ended up catching everything execpt Carp and Bullheads. Fishing was pretty consistant for a change. Between us we ended up with something like 50 fish, only 2 dozen of them being Panfish.

      See you next year, we are pulling out this week and it sounds like you were only up for the weekend.   Sorry I didn't quite have the nerve to climb the steps and introduce myself.   I guess I am not big on just showing up at the door. 
    • Surface Tension
      Lester River-McQuade area.   Last time out we found bait and Lake Trout 100-120'  taken off downriggers and stacked lines over 145-175' of water.  That can change day to day so keep an eye on the sonar.   Silver Flasher w/Fly, Water Mellon, Monkey Puke, Silver w/green/blue crushed ice spoons working well for us.  Last 2 times out were during midday and bright skies trolling around 2 MPH.   If you put in at Rice's Point bring rubber boots and watch your step as the beginning of the dock is under water.
         
    • Surface Tension
      So all 3 banks are blowing fuses with the charger outside the boat hooked to a battery with nothing else connected to it?   Try a different battery.  If your still blowing fuses I wouldn't use the charger.  
    • Surface Tension
      Buy The Boat.

      Labor day will be a busy weekend.  If you are around after the weekend, Maybe we can grab a beer.  I was going to say the landing, but maybe something else....WBL?

      Fuses are blowing for a reason most likely an undesirable reason. Much better solution to fix the problem than eliminating the fuse. Eventually the sort or item causing the fuse to blow will eventually make it to the wires. Just a thought, although not recommend, there is enough battery current where you can stick weld 11 gage steel with a 12 volt battery. Continued or prolonged welding (same as a short) could cause to battery to explode. Word of caution, led acid batteries are filled with sulfuric acid. 
    • papadarv
      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.
