      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 .

Horshoe Chain of Lakes

Recommended Posts

Guest

Was out on the Chain today. Had below average luck on Horshoe and in Krohn's Bay, but had fairly decent luck on Schneider along the north shore line. Only took home 14 fish, but the bite was steady, only way too many small fish.

Question for anyone that might know. All of the no wake markers have been taken out for the year. Does this mean we can run those areas wide open or should we still honor the areas if we know where they are.

Also, I have just found this site, so next year I will post any information I can, as I get out on the Chain at least 2 or 3 times a week.

Zamboniman, The Schneider bite has been pretty steady both Crappie and Sunnies. It will get better yet as the water temps fall. Please obey the no wake signs even though they have been removed in most spots for the year. Thanks ScottS

I was thinking of trying for some panfish this weekend on Schneider. What depth do you think they might be in with that cold weather. Any other info you have would be greatly appreciated.

I was out there last weekend and found the sunnies anywhere from 6' up by the weeds all the way to 14'. The most productive depth for larger ones was 9' to 10'. Small ones are plentiful and it may take a little searching to find some bigger ones.

No, you should go fast through those areas. There are a lot of people that live there year round. And they put those in spots where it is shallow, so you shouldnt go fast over that. Just keep it at a moderate speed, and you will be fine.

On the Horseshoe Chain. I worked the east side of horseshoe, with pretty goodluck. This is the flats area, east of the point. The area where it gets about 1-2 feet deep. I trolled as slow as my motor would go, with spinners and night crawlers. Got a few eyes, smaller ones, but what do you expect. I had a few hard hits, which had to be northerns. I was in kind of a weedy area, so I would suspect it. Other than that, not much has been going on. Theres my fishing report. smile.gif

Hi Coleman. Thanks for the sarcasm. Like I don't get enough of that already. Maybe some of us aren't as experienced as you are. I simply asked the question so I knew what the answer was, and could be respectful to the environment. Sorry to have put a bug up your butt.

Hey guys...careful now.....
Once the markers are out it is ok to travel at higher speeds, just use common sense in narrow areas and near the bridges.

Sorry if I took your message the wrong way Coleman. Didn't mean and don't want to get into an arguement on here. My bad.

I guess where I thought the sarcasm came from, and again, someone please correct me if I am wrong on this, but, if you are going at a medium speed, you are kicking out more of a wake than if you are going wide open. Help me out.

Sounds like a plan Coleman. Any news on the chain? I have Sundays off from work, and am hoping to get some fall fishing in yet this year. Would like to get into some nice sunnies and crappies, wouldn't mind some bass action either.

Chris

P.S. Above being even Minnesotans, in light of what is being predicted, we are all Americans. Hope bin Laden is found in the 50' hole of Horsehoe!!!!!!!!!!!

If you want to catch sunnies. Go to Becker and fish the south shore of the lake, with worms. Just use really light tackle this time of the year. I'mnot sure on the bass fishing this time of year. I dont get into that it much in the fall. Also, I heard Mud lake is giving out a good amount of sunnies, try the west shore there. Good Luck.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
    • ANYFISH2
      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
