      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 .

Does anyone know if the DNR stocks Cenaiko during the summer like they do to start the winter trout season?

A little off the subject but, Haad, what would you try to use for a fly or nymph when fishing Ceniko. I river fish, but haven't really tried lakes and Ceniko is close to my house

Great news! I'll hafta head out there and see what I can hook into if they're not all gone by now. There's some decent smallies in there that I'm sure have gone after some fingerlings.

Cenaiko gets hit hard, the 1st few weeks of the season, summer and winter! Once the bite drops off, the crowds drop off, then it is a little more interesting...less fish, but more satisfiying when you get one, because you have to work for them. Sometimes, the ones that are left will surprise you and go on a binge and even after all the pressure, you can still bag afew. Sometimes the DNR stocks it more then once.

They did stock Cenaiko with 2,000 rainbows in April of this year.

that sucks that they only stocked 2000 rainbows this spring, no wonder the fishing has been so slow, they usually put in 3,000. I wouldent waste your time fly fishing ceineko, you wont catch anything, the only time you could get fish is casting a dry fly off the dock in the evning. They will feed on bugs in the evning sometimes, usually before a storm.

Well, I don't fly fish so I'm throwing little things out that slowly sink that I hope interest them. Haven't made it out yet. I'll need to get out there this week sometime.

This lake can be very slow once it's been hit hard for awhile after stocking.


P.S. Don't forget the trout stamp. Lehmann's Bait is just down the road toward Anoka on Coon Rapids Blvd (Main St in Anoka). They can give you ideas on how to fish and you can get a license there. Very nice people. Though you can't fish live bait on Cenaiko, they have about the cheapest bait I've seen in years. I was just there ($1.50 for a huge scoop of crappie minnows, $2.00 for a huge fathead scoop, and crawlers were $2.25 I think for a dozen). They are open 24 hrs. After hours is an "on your honor" system. Just thought I'd give a good bait store a plug.

rjj15,
Lakes can be harder to flyfish for trout. I've done it in Colorado with some decent success throwing scuds and other nymphs. The Pass Lake streamer is a fly that works well up north, even in the rivers. Of course there's other species to go after when flyfishing, like carp, bass, northerns, etc. I got four carp Friday afternoon, and lost several others. If it's trout you are after, I'd recommend hitting the rivers sometime soon, they are fishing awesome right now. Haaad

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      A variety.   Abu 5500c3, abu 5600 mag, revo sx, several others.

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
