      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 .

Whtie Bear lake boat launches...

Recommended Posts

Slyster

Well... the public landing on Hwy 96 sucks! So crowded and too steep for my small car... I hit my car on concrete every time.. can't be good...

Can anyone tell me about the other landings? How much do they cost? Can anyone buy a permit for the whole summer etc? I am a non resident since I live in Maplewood.

I can't help but to notice there are some nice boat launches.. near the island and other areas.. they look nice and smooth and MUCH better than the public landing.

I wonder.. do they have a seasonal one time fee? My car is SO low too.. makes it really hard.. I have a Firebird. Looks so funny parked in the lots surrounded by all those pickups and vans.

Sly,

Matoska park on the the northwest corner of the lake has a boat launch. You can buy a sticker from the city of White Bear Lake offices on Hwy. 61. The fee is $15 for residents and $25 for non-residents.

It's a good launch but gets pretty sandy. It might be a challenge for a car. Tally's is probably too steep, and I believe the fee is $25 per use. Tom Wheler must be remembering the good old days when it was $5. smile.gif

Thanks for the tips! yeah... I know that Wendy's closed many years ago too.. so I wondered if that was old info.. $25 per time? That would be rediculous... I can't imagine ANYONE paying that much unless it was just once per season for the rich who live on the lake.

Yep.. stinks having my car.. tires spin SO easy on sand. When my wifes van is paid off in 4 years I think I might buy a pickup and also sell the 14 foot Lund and get a REAL fishing boat.

Wendy's did close down awhile ago. Its now a Taco Johns. Either way Tally's is right there and they charge $10 to launch there. Its nice but definitely steep and spendy if you go there all the time. There is also a city launch right next to Manitou Island. I believe its $25 for the year. Not sure how steep that one is however.

The launch by Manitou is called mataska (sp.) park. The ramp is very nice with a gradual slope but plenty deep. Fee is $15 for res, 25 for non-res. Limited parking in the lot but parking is available on some of the streets in the area.

Is that that tiny little park and teeny dirt road leading to the water? That's a boat ramp??

Bellaire is NOT a boat launch. I'm guessing you would be issued a ticket if you back your trailer in there. However, I'm sure you could carry a canoe or cartop in there. It supposed to be a beach, but it's not much of that either.

yeah.. that's what I thought!

hey.. those fees you guys are talking about... like 15 for residents and 25 for non... are those for the season or just ONE launch?

If it's for 1 launch... eeek! No way!

Sorry, I assumed it was, since they had a road going to the water. Couldn't think why they would made a road to the water.

I know there is at ramsey co beach at the north end. Wait, I'm not sure of that now either....

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
