      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.

      Here are some of the toads we have been catching on the Rum River this summer.  The biggest has been 19 1/4 inches.

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Did you find any? Let me know where you are located and contact info. Also what size is preferred?

      A popular method that I've seen is to use a slip bobber with minnows, leeches, or crawlers. Four-mile bar seems to be a popular destination but also try working along weed edges. You probably noticed the weedline is about 14' - 15' down so working those edges can be productive. Just my thoughts.
    • BobT
      The purpose for having fuses is to protect the wires and/or downstream devices from over-current situations. When an over-current situation exists the wires can be exposed to higher current than what they are rated to handle and the resulting heat will likely melt the insulation and possibly cause it to burst into flame, which can spread to an on-board fire destroying your boat and everything in it.  A fuse that repeatedly blows when replaced is a good indicator that there is a situation that needs to be resolved. You need to find out what is causing the over-current situation and resolve it. Putting in a higher rated fuse does NOT solve the problem. The wires are rated to a maximum current level and the over-sized fuse will allow excessive current to flow over the wires, which is no better than just getting rid of the fuses. Do not do this.

      Have a great retirement Ace. Really glad to hear you'll still stay on the forum!!

      When CigarGuy first showed up on these forums, I stopped by and introduced myself but I think that he was either on his dock or just hopping into the boat. I haven't visually seen him in a few years, but I did see the Mrs. Cigar Guy and another assembling a sitting bench earlier this summer! Some day I'll stop by to share a cocktail.   As for the people boating in close, here are my two Vermilion observations: 1) There are known spots on Vermilion. People go to those whether there are zero boats or ten boats there. If I am on a known spot, I don't get upset when others show up and fish close. If I am working a non-typical spot and others show up because they see you catch a fish, I do get a bit testy as well. 2) Navigation channels tend to hold fish, attracting boats that are fishing and boats that are moving. As a fisherman, I accept that people are going to boat close by in established navigation paths. I do get upset when people go through tight areas on plane or even just below it. I always try to follow a no-wake policy when going through tight areas such as Fectos or others. Our place is in Black Bay and the pinch between Black Bay and the Partridge River typically has boats. I'll come off plane and go nice and slow past boats. Treat others as you want to be treated. Preaching to the choir....I know

      move back to SD and then buy the boat You dont need to drop $50k on a new boat just to enjoy the water. I have just as much fun fishing about of a super old $500 aluminum boat with a trolling motor as I do fishing in a fully decked out Ranger. There are of course pros and cons to each but you can fish out of both and that's all that matters. And nothing is better than getting away from shore fishing it just opens up so many more opportunities to catch fish.
