      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 .

A friend of mine caught 20 bees on l.o.w. 2 weekends ago. I hate the little stink bombs myself.
Don't tell me you eat those things.

Smoked tullibees are fantastic! Well worth that heavy smell thay have in the shack.

I took a grocery sack full into Fergus Locker a few years back. They were gilled and gutted. They brined and smoked them for seven bucks.

They were all gone in a few days.

ohh ya. tulibee's are great smoked. cut off their head and cut their guts out and brine em up over night!! get a batch outta the smoker and they dont last longer than an hour. if you like smoked fish- the tulibee is the BEST smoked fish. really oily so they stay moist and not dry. good flavor too.

Give Clitherall a shot. Right off the access on the north side is a good spot. The break there is very sharp, and you are in 50 feet of water very quickly. Watch your electronics, as they are usually suspended at several different depths.

I suggest being set up at 5am at this site, as the bite has tapered off for me after sun up.

The access on the south east lobe also has some good tullibee action in the deeper waters. Work the point coming out of the east shorline about mile and a half north of the access.

i went to clitheral today and was set up by about 7. got 3 crappies that all came in single and 3 tulibees that also all came in SINGLE!!! i dont know what to think. i didnt even read much more fish than that. i lost a couple bee's at the hole, but that was it. maybe ill go back tomorrow earlier and try a little farther out.

went to ottertail after that and fished hard to barely scrounge up maybe 15 perch, nothin to brag about, no big ones and one walleye. the wierd thing was that everyone was sayin you need to be in 35 feet of water, but i got away from the group and set up in 8 feet of water!! ever heard of an eelpout in 8 feet of water?? i also got a 9 pound northern on my NOODLE ROD!! that was a blast!


ohh ya- one quick question.. you say the bite tapered off after sunrise- but did you continue to read fish on your graph on Clitherall??

The bite would typically taper off after sun up, but there will still be a few that pass through. That 5am bite can be fantastic, but it does not happen every time. In the pre dawn, they seem to run along that breakline just off the north acess on Clitherall. Try them later on in Feb or March and they bite will probably pick up.

We were out on Ottertail on Saturday too. No tulibees, but we were chasing perch. 21 to 38 feet, it really did not seem to matter. We caught fish as fast as we could put the lines down, but not many were over 9 inches.

i fished all over ottertail, and i had a tough time finding the perch. i tried all over the north side, drilling holes with my HAND AUGER!! and finally after my arm was about to fall off, i just fished open holes. finally got off the lake and headed down to the south side and thats where i got all my action. about 2 miles out from graystone or grayrock or whatever the name of that restaurant is..

woulda liked to have a lake map and get out on some of those midlake humps and whatnot and get really by myself. next time i head up there im gonna have to get a lake map and try some new areas.

We were off one of those humps about a mile and a quarter out of Graystone. Not too many houses on that one. More perch than you could shake a stick at, but they just running smaller than I like for filleting purposes. That's ok, we had a ball and the weather was perfect.

There is a little lake right outside of dent that is dynamite for tulibees if you can hit it at the right time. Tentor lake straight out from the access in 50 feet of water can be some of the best tulibee fishing around. There not quite as big as Little Pines tulibees but we found alot better numbers out there last year. You might want to try deep, last year we caught them at all depths but many were running 10 feet off the bottom, its a rush to reel those fiesty critters up 40 feet. I havent been out there this year but its worth a try. Let me know how ya did. TC

Gogblon,
Where were you fishing on Clitherall on Sunday? North or south end? Any depth to those Tulibees or crappies?

ya i was out sunday morning. i started out on the north end by the landing and then went and tried the south end for a little while. on the north end is where i got the 3 bee's and 3 crappies, the crappies came in suspended at all depths, anywhere from about 8 feet to about 30 feet down. the few tulibees i saw on the flasher came in at about 10-15 feet down. on the south end i didnt mark any fish besides right on the bottom there in about 40 feet of water, and whatever they were they sure didnt like it when i dropped my jig down there- they would take off fast.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!
    • monstermoose78
      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.
    • monstermoose78
      I need to slow down and focus on shooting

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
