      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 was at a Christmas play last night and drove by Lost lake on the way. That must have been you twords the middle of the lake as I saw one lighted shake and was wondering if the lucky person fishing was on a hot crappie bite. I asked about this lake because I took my daughter to the playground there a few times this year and on those occassions I tossed a line from the fishing pier. I was suprised and pleased by the size and number of fish caught. I caught sunfish, crappie, bass, and pike. I am for the most part a catch and release fisherman. The lake is small and I thought it might be worth a shot one night afterwork for some good quick action through the ice. It appears to be connected to White Bear so you may have a shot at a walleye as well. Do you fish this lake often with much success?

Yeah, that would of been me...That was my first time out on lost in years. According to the dnr, the lake did winterkill last year, but they also say it re-populated itself. They also stocked it a couple times this year with perch. I'm not sure if it is connected to white bear, but I was thinking that it was as well.

There was a few holes out there when I got there, and I also drove by tonight and saw someone out there, so It does get fished, but its definitely not fished as heavily as it was a few years ago. It wasn't uncommon to see 3-4 houses out there in the early winter.

good luck, and if you see a purple otter out there, that will most likely be me.

Shhhh, speak quietly, that's my favorite small lake to hit. I know people are listening here.

Seriously, it dosen't get a ton of pressure but it's not a real producer of big fish. It is connected to WBL thru culverts so there is the chance of anything there. There is worse lakes to kill some time on.

BTW, I have a Eskimo quik flip 2 so if you see me out there stop and say hi.

I have a the Eskimo Quick flip II as well. I would never try to ruin any man's littl honey hole. I just need something close to bend a stick for those days when I only have a few hours to get on the ice.

It's really not that great of a little lake, it's just close for me as well and you don't have to fight alot of people. Decent pike and you can catch some metro sized sunnies and crappies.

Try a tip up by the dock in about 10 feet of water, half way down.

At least we know the name of the lake this year. The next step is to actually get out on the ice and fish it.

i figured lost got winter kill, i hit the crappies out there about five times and every fish was the same size, they must all be stocked by the DNR, too bad it used to have some dandies. in 97' i cleaned 10 crappies over 1.5 pounds out of that lake.

      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.

      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.

      Plus+1  The size seems to drop off late in the year. Last year bait shops I went to were selling Large as Jumbos and small as large!

      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.

      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.

      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!

      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
