      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 .

JBDRAGON-Bass Fishing

About 2 weeks ago you were going to fish Sewell. Was wondering how did you do. I can hardly wait. Will be headed up there over Labor day to spend a week. I live in Missouri, but Minn bass fishing is awesome.
Any suggestions on BASS fishing some other lakes? Catch and release.
Thanks.

I did fish Sewell.

It was the first time I fished it this late in the season. It took me an hour or so to figure out what depth they were at, but once I did we ended up with about 50 fish in 7.5 hours. Try the deep weed beds anywhere on the lake (10'-15'). We were catching them excusivly on 7" berkly gulps (darker colors). Nothing Huge was caught, but all were between 2 and 4 lbs.

There is another REALLY cool lake to try not far from there called Spitzer. This lake is LOADED with northerns. Many times I will fish the morning and early afternoon on Sewell for Bass and spend the evening hammering northerns on Spitzer. Heavy weeds all over the lake with Crazy structure and backwaters. I fished it for bass opener and caught several fish (bass). I was only on the lake for a few hours. I have never spent an entire day working this lake (you could spend a few days working all the bays). There is VERY limited space to park, and there are stumps and rocks to watch out for so go slow. I took a chunk out of my lower unit on bass opener. I was in 8' of water!!

My wifes family has a cabin on Pomme De Terre. I have been meaning to try to find the fish on that lake. I know there are some there.

I have also heard that Ten Mile has been hot this summer. Never fished it but it is at the top of my list for that area.

jbdragon- Fished both Spitzer and Pomme De Terre this year for bass tourneys. Spitzer is a tough lake since everything looks the same. Most of the back waters/eddy's look the same. But I only had some success on a few of them.(mostly fishing reeds with plastics) But we fished there early bass opener when the weeds never grew up too bad. And Pomme De Terre had some good success throwing senko type baits under over lying trees. But my favorite lake to fish so far is Big Chippewa, those under cuts are AWESOME! grin.gif Pulled some nice 4 pounders outta there.

I've heard good stuff about Devils lake in Brandon as well. Each year I want to get down there, but I just never get there.

JB;
Thanks for the info. Been away from a computer for a few days. Were staying at Old Towne Resort on Clitherall. We'll be up next Saturday afternoon. Leaving KC Friday Night...picking up the boat in Omaha and fishing by about 3pm Saturday. Was going to fish Norway first. Sewell on Sunday. Talked to a guy last year at Norway and he mentioned Spitzer, but didn't fish it. Not enough time...too many lakes. We'll be fishing in a Gray Sea Nymph with Missouri tags on it. Maybe we'll see you.

George R- Went out to Norway a couple weeks ago trying to get a few walleyes outta there, with no luck. So we switched over to bass fishing. Pretty slow i thought. We only caught 15 bass in the range 13"-16" in 1 1/2hrs. Mostly t-rigging worms or throwin senko type plastics.

      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!

      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 
    • MinnowBuckets

      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

      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
