      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 .

Rush Lake was really going Thursday evening, Friday night a person could hardly stand up out there with the wind, fish still cooperated. Sat night ventured to Big Pine, all I can say is wow! Fish are on fire in that lake. Many, Many nice fish we caught out there Sat night. Everybody out there is just slaying them, and I mean nice fish... If you get a chance go too Big Pine. Find a goup of houses and fish because they are all catching fish. Went too OtterTail Sunday and there is not a lot of ice there. Kind of scary, lots of open water? I don't know why? I mean in real odd places. We decided instead to go back too Rush Lake. Rush is just like OtterTail, there are lots of open water holes out there. Be very careful if you go out on any of these lakes, they are really messed up...

I'm not sure what lundprov considers "nice" fish, but Big Pine has loads of dinky fish, and a "few" nice ones too. We caught 18 fish on Big Pine last Saturday, 3 were keepers and the rest were dinks (10 inches or less).

I guess I consider three over the 24 inch mark nice fish. I don't know what you consider to be nice fish, but I know that many would agree with me that these are nice!! We had some small fish as well, but we also brought home twelve that were all 16-20 inchers.. These fish are going nuts out there, many other groups around us also caught nice fish as well, oh, can I say nice or is Matt going to correct me again?

LundproV,

I will never speak for anyone on here....but hopefully he didn't intend for his comment to offend. I know what Matt is talking about when he says little. Big Pine has it's share of little fish, but also has it's share of nice ones like you got. They tend to really school up size wise out there. Nice job on the fish. I have some good spots gps'd out there, just need to find the time to hit them! How much ice? Is it pretty consistent all the way across or are you down in one of the bays??

I used to fish big pine more frequently when I lived in the area, but have been unable to get out there much in the past few years, because I moved to Moorhead. I am coming up this weekend to give it a shot though. I assume the breaklines would be a good place to start?? I used to have success out there with sucker minnows. Is this the way to go, or should a guy get shiners?

Walter,

Find the weeds in 4 to 7 1/2 feet of water and jig a dead smelt. The 'eyes are hammerin' with this technique.

Go Dragons!

Walter,

Just kidding... But you never know. Glad to see you're back on again. Up for another trip up to URL and LOTW? Looking forward to it. It looks like we might have to jump over to the Turtles this winter also.

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
