      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.

      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.
