      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 .

Kandi fishing report

Recommended Posts

kandi2

Hello everyone, just kind of want to give everyone a fishing report from the past week...May17-23rd. Lots of small walleys being caught as you all know, but Friday and Saturday started to see fish coming in that were pretty decent, not huge, but in that 15-18 inch range with a few bigger. Still catch alot of fish but it seems the bigger ones may be starting to turn on a little bit. it seems that most of the decent fish were caught on a fuzz-e-grub type jig tipped with a fathead and or a leech. A jig that is colored similar to a perch seemed to be the hot bait. A group of 4 campers from outside the area managed to leave with a bunch of "nice" walleys and a few really nice perch on Saturday night after fishing most of the day. They did have to keep 4 smaller ones that they hooked too deep...I gave them credit for doing the right thing and not just throwing them back to die. They also complimented some "locals" who were out fishing by them that gave them some pointers and were very helpful...good job whoever that was, you represented our lake and area very well!! It is nice to hear about the good things that happen around the lake rather than the bad stuff lately caused by a few. Storms predicted again tonight, not sure how that will affect the fishing, but we still need the rain...at least the ditch by by the campground is actually flowing again...first time this spring pretty much!! Good luck to all who venture onto the lake, remember to stop in and say hello!! If you are new to the lake stop in and I can give you some ideas of where to try wetting a line!! Take care and GOOD FISHING!!!

Just want to introduce myself....I have the old Norling cabins out on the Island...the dock with the white bench as opposed to the Islander's wood bench...I always put in at Park 1 so I don't get to Park 2 very often...If you need shelter or emergency assistance it's available most weekends on the Island...There seems to be a world record year class of 12 inch Walleyes this year...If people could just show some restraint the next few years could be fantastic for Big Kandiyohi

Don't forget the bullheads. The best bullhead bite I have seen in 30 years. Big colossal yellow belly bullheads so if you like bullheads come and take a pile home with you. I don't think anyone would care if you don't practice catch and release on bullheads.

If anybody wants them I'll start saving them ...Heck I'll even keep them alive...I grew up on bullheads and God as my witness I'll never eat bullheads again...

It doesn't seem to matter what you use for bait out there either. The bullheads hit anything. The bigger shiners and suckers caught fewer bullheads but they would still bite at them. Those things are annoying!
Maybe they will cut down the numbers of Memorial Day fishermen on Kandi. Bullheads may be good for something!

Gettum and eatem before the water temp gets to high cause they will taste like **** . Best time for those spiny critters is after ice out. Catch a mess ,fillet and fry use remains for the garden will make the sweet corn grow well!!
I don't know if they still do but there were guys from Indiana coming up every spring and netting them bullheads out of Lake Lillian. Maybe someone should invite them to net some of those out of Kandi

thought I would update the kandi fishing report. The bullhead bite is still hot. You don't want to miss out on this. Get out there while the action is hot.

I have had luck on Kandi in one spot and one spot only, this year, only 1 bullhead too. A couple of nice Northern and a bunch of small eyes. It seems kinda tough out there this year. I am not catching them in the normal spots. I did see one guy pull about 10 nice ones in, but I was right next to him and nothing. He must have had one hot spot.

yes it is leech21. It is like a slime that hangs just under the surface. Does anyone know what this is caused from. In past years it is only on the side of the lake that the wind blows it too, but this year it looks like it will be all over.

This bloomin' Kandi issue has been around longer than I have. I researched it a couple months ago and found that Kandi is classified as a 'hypereutrophic' lake which apparently makes it naturally fertile. High amounts of phosphorous are found in Kandi which contributes to the bloom.
An article on the net
(http://www.pca.state.mn.us/publications/reports/lar-34-0086.pdf)
listed the major sources of the excess phosphorous in Kandi. First it blamed the "loading of nutrients into Wagonga." It also mentioned agricultural runoff and human waste issues upstream and on the lake. The information is almost 20 yrs. old so it might be outdated and completely false. Take a look anyway, it's interesting stuff.

Whew! J-Hawk, it would take a long time to go through the historical/current impacts Kandi. has and continues to take from upstream. If you're ever in the area and would like to hear/learn more about Kandi. and it's past and present problems please look me up, I'd be glad to share. One positive note though, I believe the lake is improving gradually with each year. smile.gif

Well Saturday the "green splooge" on Kandi. was about as bad as I've seen for some time!! To say that it was a just a nuisance would be an understatement. It was the blue/green, ugly, ameba looking patches of slime with a smell so bad you didn't want to be outside! Not a good weekend to be on the side the wind was blowing into! frown.giffrown.gif When the boats left the North landing they left a trail of "blue/green splooge" out to the gravel road! YUK!

      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

      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
