      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 .

after this weekend, next weekend is the traditional opener for tulibee's i guess.. just wonderin if im the only idiot that will be chasing these slimy stinky greasy things or if there will be other idiots out there too>? lol

also wanted to keep the hotspots rolling in. its not like you really need to keep a tulibee spot top secret. they are rough fish.

by the way- i havent made it to that little lake by Dent yet.. but im thinkin maybe on tuesday.. i guess we'll see.

ive been told that i could get some on star too.. dont know for sure where on the lake- the only lakes that i know at all are Clitherall, and Little Pine. those are the only lakes ive ever fished tulibees, im relatively new to the sport.

its real fun when you get into a good school of em you can get a couple hundred a day. ive seen a group of about 10 guys up on little pine that had 'bees stacked up like cord wood, about 10 feet long and 4 feet high!!!!!!

id like to get into a school like that! fill up the back of my truck and find a jumbo sized smoker!!

I'm gonna be searching for some crappies this afternoon/evening. Would definitely like to mix in some bees with it.

I live real close to Clitherall Lake, so that might be more appealing. Anyone heading there at all over the weekend? What about this front moving in today??

Just wanted to let you guys know that the bees were biting on clitheral this morning. Me and another guy went out and caught 14. We were fishing by 5 but the best bite was from 6:30 to 7:30. Marked very few fish after 8. We fished in 45ft of water on the east point. Caught fish anywhere from 5ft to 40ft. We could actually see the fish down to 15ft in our holes. If anyone goes let me know how you do.

sorry guys.. i woulda maybe gone on sunday if i had known that there was an interest. when i went on the check the site on saturday the forums were down, this was about 3 in the afternoon, then it got so **** cold i decided not to go on sunday anyway. sounds like this weekend is supposed to be nicer, so maybe we can organize somethin for sunday this week on clitherall. doesnt sound like a bad plan at all.

my theory is more people=more FISH!!!

the more guys you got in an area to keep the schools interested i think the more fish you will catch when they do come through.

a couple of questions??

the east point?? i really dont know the lake that well i didnt realize there was an east point.. did you see alot of fish on the vexi that didnt bite or were too busy with other fish?? multiples coming in at once?? the one time that i went i didnt see alot of fish. but the few that i saw got caught.

e-mail me- gogblon@hotmail.com if you guys are interested on setting something up for the weekend. saturday is an option, but sunday would work alot better for me.. hope to hear from you guys soon

It was way cold to sit outside over the weekend. I tried and failed.

A friend of mine is coming up this weekend and we are going target crappies on W. Battle or Clitherall, however I've never fished Clitherall for crappies yet. Tulibees might not be a target, but I'll definitely catch some for fun. smile.gif

I believe east point is off a resort on the east side? I forgot the name of the resort but there is a destinctive point that extends out.

remember what i said, i got 3 really nice crappies right by the landing there while i was tulibee fishing the last time i was there. i dont know if they would be running better early like the tulibees or not??

i think ill definately be there on sunday, but i dont know for sure about saturday yet.. i think im gonna go home on friday and do laundry, take care of some business, so i MIGHT be around on saturday too.

if you see a gross 87' ford (black and grey) with a topper on it right next to the landing either morning that will be me.. chasing those stinky buggers

Sometimes they will wack a pimple or an angle eye with some grubs or a minnow head on them.

More commonly I will use a small 1/64 oz size jig with a waxie. It helps to have a flasher above the jig. A blade from an Angle Eye JR would work well. Just take off the hook, and then drop a length of line below the blade and tie your jig on the end of that. Those slip droppers work well also.

I fish up and down that break right off the landing. They are usually suspended.

Some days they are fussy and wont touch anything, others your 5 gallon bucket will be filled in an hour.

I have a ton of stuff to get done this weekend, so I don't know if I will get out or not.

Geeman from the Shanty is headin up in a couple of weeks so I need to do some scouting before he comes.

hope to see you out there

There is an outside chance that I may be out there on Sunday morning if all goes well for me on Saturday.

If not, I plan to hit that spot the following weekend.

Cool. We will try to be there Sunday early morning. So far we are going to concentrate Sat. morning on Battle, and it all depends on what happens from there.

Can I ask what you use for catching these bees? I'll prepare my tackle for the occassion.
You said you were deep too? Fish come in suspended? Off the break or away?

I usually catch bees with crappie jig/minnow combo most of the time.

sounds like we might havea few guys out there this weekend eh?? i usually use a small dare-devil or a do-jigger for a flasher. put about a foot or 15" of smaller test line under that with a smaller sunfish jig tipped with a waxie.

thats the way i was told to do it.

last time i was out there the stupid things were more interested in the flasher half the time, i couldnt get them interested in the jig!! i just sat in about 45-50 - i cant remember how deep it was for sure, but if you come out, ill be there set up by 5 AM for sure on sunday so just set up by me if you want, i dont know if im close to a break or anything, maybe that was part of my problem the last time i was out there??

Gissert- how soon will you know for sure if your gonna make it out or not?? maybe you could give me your phone number or i could give you mine, we'll see if i was in the optimum spot the last time i was out there.

Gogblon -

From your description, you were right where I have done well before.

40 to 50 feet of water, right off the access.

I am gonna plan on being there. I work in the cities during the week, so when I get home on the weekend I have to cram a bunch of chores into Saturday and Sunday. If I go, I should be there by 5 am also.

My truck is a maroon Dodge diesel.

okie dokie. sounds like a plan. if we have a few guys there, maybe we can keep a nice big school interested for awhile and pull up a pick up load. i dont know for sure what there is for numbers up on that lake, but like i said, ive seen some big ol' piles of tulibees on other lakes before!!

i just wanna get at least a dozen for the smoker!!!

I found some crappies last night, so depending if we find the hot spot or not, we may be on Clitherall Sunday morning. Hope to pull up some bees and crappies, that would be fun. Maybe see you guys there.

nice. im thinkin slip bobber with a minnow under it for my second line- see what happens, i know ill pick up a few crappies and maybe even snag a couple 'bees on that!

gotta see if i can hunt down a gas auger for the weekend, i have one at home, but i dont even know if it runs anymore, its been a couple years since it got used, and last time we did use it, seemed like it took forever, its an old strike master and it's pretty gut-less.

hand augering through 3 feet of ice is not fun, contrary to popular beleif...

Sunday morning.. be there or be square.

a nickle to the first tulibee!!
lol

I've got a question for you tulibee guys. It sounds like the morning works well, but what is the word on the rest of the day? Are there other times that seem to be as good? I am just wondering because I would like to get out there, but I can't fish the mornings. Any other advice would be helpful too. Thanks!

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.
    • delcecchi
      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day.

      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.
    • Wakemup
      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
