      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 .

Not sure there are too many folks really pursuing them at this time. There are few incidental fish being caught by deep water perch fisherman, and those chasing walleyes in deep water transition areas. There are a couple of really strong year classes in the lake, as many as there have been in years.

Lyback's now has their road extended to the tullibee hole, and 41 feet of water, so there is one of the best options on the lake, short of going to the mud, or the deep transitions on the north end. It's the best of both worlds over that deep soft bottom, as you should also find some jumbo perch mixed in. Access is limited on the north end , but there were allot of tullies caught there in Feb. last year.

Good luck !

Has anyone been having any luck targeting tulibees lately? I just recently tries in about 38 ft, but only ended up with one after 4 hrs on the lake.

Glad to hear they are starting to bite! I marked and saw tons of fish  on the cam last weekend but I could not get them to bite.. I was also in 31 ft on the north side, after starting out on the south end in 38 ft.  I might have to give it one last try this weekend.

 Thank you for the advice.

Where on the North end did you go out of?  Last weekend my son & I went out of lybeck's and Terry's.  Marked a lot of fish but only got one tullibee and one jumbo perch that are in the smoker now.  Anyone know if there are any roads open on the north end I can drive out of?

Stick in Mud

We caught a few tullibee last weekend, and probably would've caught more if we weren't using very large spoons to attract aggressive walleye.  We had multiple fish on the screen, chasing the lure up 10-15 feet off bottom, disappearing quickly, reappearing, then a massive school of red that made you think the Vex was broken, etc.   Probably tullies. :)

We caught all of ours and saw almost all of them off the deep edge of the mud, about 31-32 ft.  I suspect if you had the interest and spent the time, you could punch a lot of holes and find some.

I'm not sure if Myr Mar still has its bridge out past the first crack; that's where I was out of last weekend.  Another new crack showed up on Sunday, heading south towards the main lake, but it wasn't that big.  If you're curious about heading out of there, give them a call to make sure they haven't removed the bridge. I wouldn't be surprised if they had.

I fished out of Hunter's Point last Saturday for the Perch Extravaganza and targeted tullibee. I fished some of the deeper areas as close the edge of the flat as I could get. 33-35FOW is where we caught fish. Between 3 guys and a matter of 3hrs fishing we managed 17 tullibees over 16" ad quite a few under that we released. Small jigging spoons like forage minnows (key was no rattles) and also 5mm tungsten jigs both tipped with either minnow heads or larva. It was mayhem when the fish would come through. We had multiple triples in the time spent fishing. Also managed to catch 3 jumbos right around 11"-12" and some 14"-16" walleyes. Hoping to make it back up there a time or two before ice out to find some more fish.

Good luck,
-Zander

By the way, we took the wheeler out of Hunter's point but there was a nasty pressure ridge that a Ford Explorer fell through. We were able to safely cross in one location with the wheeler but please use caution. This ridge will not be a problem if accessing the lake from the west/northwest side.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
