      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 .

Well, it's about that time again for the game fish to end and the "other season" to start. In preparation for this, I thought it might be nice to share some thoughts on where you catch your tullibees. If anyone hasn't ever tried this, you must. Not only can it be a great time....lots of fish and great weather, but tullibee smoked is one of the greatest fish ever. You just have to get past their oily, stinky smell sometimes.

One of my favorite places is Little Pine. Weather restricted me last year, but they were there, I wasn't.
Another pretty good lake is Long Lake by Vergas. I often wonder about Rose Lake too. Just never fish it.
I've heard Pelican can be good as can Sallie. Also heard Buffalo has quite a few as well. Anyone else with some good lakes?
I mostly fish drop lines off spoons but does anyone else have any secrets?

Clitherall is where I usually go. Right off the north access is good, as is off the sharp point on the west side. I use the same methods that you described. Best hours here have been about an hour and a half before sunrise untill just after full daylight.

I have caught many tullibees in the west basin of Ottertail, but they were always incidentals to walleye/perch fishing.

When I was in high shcool, we used to spear quite a few in the dark house on Stalker. That was a lot of fun, you had to be really quick with the spear. This lake might be a good sleeper for tullibees. I know the old timers used to net the west end in the fall.

Pickeral is popular, but I have not fished that one.

Here's a recipe you should try. Fillet ciscoes (tullibee in Minnesotan) and place 3 or 4 fillets in heavyweight aluminum foil. Add a couple gobs of butter, some lemon juice (not too much), salt & pepper, two slices onion, and top with ketchup. Seal the foil to retain heat & steam, put on Coleman stove for 6 to 9 minutes. Open foil and enjoy -- it's the ultimate ice lunch (or shorelunch).

Incidentally, if what someone posted elsewhere is true -- that you cannot clean and prepare fish on the ice, then I'm in potential trouble. (I leave no trace of my cleaning or eating practices.)

Has anyone ever fished Rush lake for Tulibee. In the summer there is always dead one's on the surface. They seem to have good size.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.
