      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 .

St. Paul panfish lake??

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I'm going to be in St. Paul for Xmas Eve ans Xmas. I'm thinking of getting out for a few hours on Friday morning before the Vikes game. I'd like to be close.

Anyone have any suggestions for a decent panfish bite over there. I'll be in the area of Como, and anthing within 20 minutes of there, or so, would be great.

I'm not looking for specific hotspot, just a lake with potential. I'll do my own hunting.

Thanks.

climbmda, Owasso has about 15 trillion crappies in it. I've never fished it early ice, but I know late ice the things will hit nearly anything dangled under the ice.

Lake Johanna in Arden Hills has some nice sunnies in it if you can find them.

Gervais has some decent sunnies and perch. Use bigger minnows to keep away from the small perch.

como has some pretty big crappies in it, but you have to get close to the aerator to get them. The crappies in owasso are all around 4", but people do catch some decent ones out of wabasso.

This is all new water to me. If anyone is interested in going out Friday morning, I'd love to link up for some fishing. Or if anyone had any tips they don't want to post, I can be emailed at climbmda71@aol.com.

Any ice reports on these lakes?

I was thinking of heading out to josephine friday morning for some eyes, then i might be going to turtle or owasso after that for some tip-up fishing at owasso or craps at turtle. Look for my car it is tan and has a FM sticker on the back. But all that depends on what time i am going to my uncles, if it is early i will just be fishing north center all day, propb with tip-ups next to the access, his house is the one right of the access

Bobb-O, let me know how you do on Island. I drive by this lake every single day on the way to and from work. I see the occassion boat and ice fisherman. Close to home for me and may be worth a shot if it holds nice crappie and eyes. Just post if you have any success or I may see you out there one day. I would have a black Dodge Dakota and a green Eskimo quick flip II

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.
