      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 .

Hello Russ<BR>I have fished Woman for about 20 years and guided on the lake for the last three years I have found June to be a vary good time for walleyes and northerns thy should be going vary well on live bait I prefer shiner minnows on a lindy type snell or jig and minnow combination a good depth to start is around 14ft. moving shallower or deeper from there the fish will be on the rock and sand structure There is an afull lot of structure on woman and can be intimidating I believe your resort is in hunnters bay and that bay has some broductive humps and a large rock bar at the mouth of the bay that will produce fish Explore the lake it is vary beutifull and expariemnt with structure as you come on to it.Sounds like you will have quit an armada so you should be able to divide and conquer. Good luck injoy your vacation and keep your hooks sharp lure wet and line tight.<BR> Dan<BR> Lake State Taxidermy & Guide

I have fished Woman Lake. It is a great Largemouth Bass lake. Quite a few Smallmouth as well. I placed 4th in a bass tournament out there last summer. BIG fish. Also good for walleye, muskie, pike.<BR><P>------------------<BR>Adam Johnson<BR> <A HREF="http://www.adamjohnsonfishing.com" TARGET=_blank>www.adamjohnsonfishing.com</A>

I was raised on millacs lake,starting with cane poles to the steel rod era, Itwas always fun but not very table worth, AH!!!! rapela,a boat,but still cane poles and steel rods, more food but still close to shore, when the fish moved,so did we,to the hay fields!! AH!! alum boat,motor,nice rods reels, life was grand. we learned to move when the fish did, field work by day,fish by night, I thought i was hooked before,this did it,4-5 foot rollers, a coffee can to bail with,life is more beautiful. Ilearned that lake as i grew,I guided for certain co.s after earning what I called my badges. Times have changed, its time to meet new people and new ways.Thats what its all about. Nothing wrong with a new lake and adollar bet with the son in laws. at least I would like an edge over them,any more help would be helpful I would like to take ther dollar!! thanks all

I have fished Woman for about 25 years and June can be an excellent month. Some of the other posts have suggested trying the various rock piles around the lake. This is a great place to start especially for walleyes, smallmouth bass (there are some lunkers in Woman), perch and pike. Depending on how the weather goes this spring, early June could be perfect for slab crappies. This is a greatly overlooked species on Woman. Get yourself some crappie minnows and use a plain hook below a light bobber in about 2-3 feet of water near new weed growth. Lantern Bay is a great spot to start. The lake is going through a cycle the past couple of years where the northern pike population is pretty small. We've been catching tons of 'hammer handles', but I'm sure the bigger ones are around somewhere. Good luck and have a great time. While you're up there, be sure to treat the family to a boat ride over to see the homes on the 'Gold Coast'.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
