      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 .

Went fishing for tulibees about a week ago on clitheral. we caught about 15. We were set up fishing by 5:30am and didn't mark a fish until 7:15. fishing was pretty fast from 7:30 till 8:00 most of the fish were only five to ten feet down and you could see them come up to your waxworm. Most of them would just nudge your bait but we did have a few takers. Had another pretty good rush around 9:30.

What kind of bait do you use for Tulibees? I'm going up to work on the cabin this weekend but might try fishing Little Pine if the wind will let me get out with my portable.

I saw several on the aqua vu on East Battle last weekend.
We were fishing for Pike/Walleye, so we were not using anything that appealed to the tullibees.

I would love to give the tulibees a try, but I have never done it before. What advice can you give me to help get me started? Depths? Time? Presentation? etc..
I just need to have an understanding of what I should be doing when I am out there.
Thanks.

What is a good lake to catch them on? I love catching panfish and such. Just love to catch fish on light tackle. Would love to get into a mess of tulibees! Do you fish them like sunnies? any spots would be appreciated.

Thanks

Tullibee's can be caught on many area lakes.

Deep and clear are the better choices.
I attach a silver spoon to my line, than 1-2' of mono, and to that I attach a small tear drop jig and a waxie. Than with your vexilar, jig like crazy til you see fish come in. I let it sit still, and wham!!!
Usually two lines like this jigged opposite of each other is a better idea...although more difficult when the bite is crazy.

Lakes.....
Otter Tail,
Clitherall
Battle
Star
Stalker

Just to name a few.

I fished Clitherall last evening for tulibees and crappies and hooked into a couple dandy tulibee. Those fish love the glow devil 1/16oz spoon. I was using the pink/white with a minnow head.

Fished 42 feet of water and the bees were suspended about 28 feet down. They are fun to catch for sure!!

Just find deep water adjacent to structure and start jiggin. They will come in and nail the lure.

Gissert, you still want some bees to smoke??

ChuckN -

Yeah, some 'bees would be great! Just gill and gut 'em, and toss them in the freezer.

I'd like to hook up and fish with you soon. I am up to my ears in a project right now, but after we finish the first couple of aircraft, I'll have some comp time coming.

I got into a bunch of 8-12" one last spring and froze them whole. I'm saving them for the day when I can get back up to LOW and use them under some tip ups!!!

If you are planning on heading up there this March or April, might be worth saving a few of the smaller ones......they sure love anything that is greasy, oily and smelly!

Hey Hammer Em,
Just wondering where you caught the 8 and 10 inchers? I have been on clitherall and all I've gotten there is 14 to 16 inchers which is nice size for smoking but a little to big for bait. I am going to low in mid march and would like to freeze some that size. If you would give up some info it would be appreaciated.
Thanks

Hi, I am new to using this forum but I have been reading it in school. I really want to catch more tulibees. Got a cabin on East Battle, and I know that they're are a lot of them out there. Haven't really had a chance to get out there much this year, but I was wondering what's the limit and when are the best times to fish for them? And also if anyone fishes E. Battle has anyone been catching walleyes lately?

boganboy,

The best times to catch tulibees is during low light periods (early morining or evening) with the morning bite being the best from my experience. There is no limit on tulibees.

By the way, walleye season has ended so you'll have to wait until May.

Was wondering if anyone here has actually tried Ottertail for tulibees. I fish OT religiously and have caught several bees in the summer and during there spawning season in November December. There is so much deep water on OT that I think it would be tough to target the ciscoes through the ice.

I have always managed to catch a few while walleye fishing in the west basin.

They will usually hit my angel eye or pimple type lure when I reel up to them on my locator.

I still think that lakes like Star and Clitherall are more consistant for tullibees.

      East access..... only 3.5" - 4"  200 yards out.  .... don't know north acces as I saw enough to  stay off.
    • MrSchrute
      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!
    • walleyewalby
      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
      so went to go scope it out, 15 trucks on the northside, wheelers and houses out. Baxter is packed. last nights fresh snow is showing alot of active cracks too... i may wait a coujple days for blue and check out baxter instead.
    • Wicheesehead37
      Anyone know of the ice conditions in the oak narrows area?
    • blue gill hunter
      Has anyone heard of any ice reports on Big Marine?
    • dindunuffins
      I heard  6" or so around terrys..  id figure public access must be close to the same?
    • gimruis
      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
