      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 .

I have an opportunity to buy some lakeshore on Red Rock and am trying to gather some information on the lake. Is the lake a pretty good fishery? What species? I have checked the DNR report but wanted to gets some input from local anglers. Is there any thing to the claim that there is a water quality problem.

I am going up to visit this weekend so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Big Brown, did you buy land on the northside of the lake, and if so do you wanna sell it to me? smile.gif

Anyways... I've spent many a days on Red Rock, so maybe I can lend some service. The lake has been stocked w/ walleyes about 4 outta the last 5 years, not tons of natural reproduction, although some does occur. The alst year or 2 has been bad as far as size, but numbers are still good. (Next year all the lil 12-14" eyes should be choice).
Surprised to report that the smallmouths that were stocked a few years back have come on REALLY well and there is a massive amount of 1 1/2+ lbs bass. (Worming along the south shore and around the island during summer can be awesome).
Nice northern population, but not a lot of size to em. (Not a big pike guy).
Now we get to the secret of the lake.... this lake has an AMAZING crappie population right now. On opener all we caught were 1, 1 1/2, and nearly 2 pound crappies off the dock on the northshore. My buddies are gettin a group of 5 around abouts 2#'s mounted. They are awesome through the ice and about the only thing that bites.
Theres lots more so e-mail me if you wanna know more...

Big Brown, do you know if there is any other property for sale on the lake? I've been looking for a while and would be interested.

Actually it is a lot currently owned by a buddy who is looking to sell. I will ask him more about the area tonight and post something tomorrow. If I decide not to buy the place I will be happy to put either of you in touch with him.

He claims that there are big sunfish in the lake as well. Any truth to this?

Any comments on the water clarity?

Water Clarity is awesome... except for early June til late August... the 3 farms on the lake have pumped huge amounts of chemicals into the lake. This green stuff blooms every summer (its supposedly some micro sized shrimp). As they die they clump together and make big clumps that float right at the surface. Also they stick to everything, and when they dry they turn to this aqua color that sticks to anything and can stain. Its a big mess and no solution is apparent yet.

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
