      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 .

Turtle Lake report

Well-- this is a repeat but now I am thinking it should have been in a post by itself!

---------TURTLE LAKE-Friday 6-11-2004------------

WOW! That stunk! Was windy and cold... only 1 crappie on the East shore right in the middle portion of the lake.. on a twister.

We saw a fly fisherman going at it too but he didn't seem to have much luck either.

I think the fish just were not biting today.. maybe the weather or maybe the heavy rains.. We tried ALL the spots for our four hours. South.. bullrushes.. north.. docks etc.

This lake is really developed- docks everywhere! The depths around the warning bouys are no less than 3 feet deep right now.. probably due to the high water with all our rain.

There must be at least 30+ parking spots at the boat ramp.. nice ramp.. not steep at all. Nice dock there too. We were all alone there today.. not another car or boat in site... until 4:00ish... being a weekday of course.. tomorrow- with the nice forecast so rare these days- things could be different!

We tried Twisters, redeyes, and a couple of different colors of 6ft rapalas. Nada. We didn't have any live bait however.

Was fun to get out though... until the skies started to get pretty dark! More rain!

Hit Turtle for the first time this morning. Lot was full at 8:45, but I only had to wait five minutes for a parking spot.

Caught four smallish bass and a 9" bull gill, a first for me, all around docks. Also lost one bass that was a bit bigger.

I did see one smallmouth follow in my first largie.

A little different lake for me, the water was kind of dingy in my opinion, maybe due to the rain?, and the weeds/weedline was kind of sparse.

Went over Center Bar and not much happenin, noted a couple of fish hanging on the drop.

Worth another shot sometime. Judging by all the fishing boats out there it has some fish in it.

Live bait is the key for me. I use suckers and shiners and seem to catch a lot of bass and northern.

I've had my best luck on the west side of the bouys in 10-17 ft of water.

Was out there yesterday morning for 2 hours.

Caught and released 6 Crappies, 8 LM Bass, and one 14" Walleye fishing in about 8-12 feet of water.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
