      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've fished out there numerous times during school. Sagatagan will produce good crappie and pike numbers->tip-ups won't stay down some days. Stumpf lake to the west is also a very good pike lake, I had my best luck on the dorm (east) side. I've never fished Gemini (I think that one is the campus sewage lake). Either Sag or Stumpf should produce action, and in the very least it's usually pretty peaceful out there. Good Luck!

All the lakes around campus are pretty good. Gemini is a small sewage basin that is always very productive for blue gills, craps, and a few perch. Eat at your own risk however. The little lake righ across the road from Gemini is ok as well with gills and a little better for craps. Sag is a fun lake with lots of pike and a few craps. Gills in this lake run pretty small but if you sort you can find a meal. Lots of bass as well. Remember, no motors on any of these lakes, including augers. I hear they are cracking down on this because of frequent violations. Good luck!

Anyone fish Achman Lake, which is in that area? I want to take the kids fishing for some Northerns. My son got a new tip up for X mas and he's itching to catch something on it.

I fish this lake from time to time and it can be real good for slimers and bass. The slimers run small but you can catch many if you hit it right. There are also craps and gills in there but I still have not figured them out in the Winter. Its a VERY clear lake (one of the cleanest in MN from what I hear) which makes sight fishing a blast, the kids will love it! If you are looking for some fast action for the kids, I would take them over to Gemini. The gills bite all day long and there is decent size to them. It is a waste water storage area however, so eat at your own risk! Good luck!

Thanks jlm,

If the northerns on Achman aren't cooperative we might have to go to Gemini and try for some Gills. The kids don't care much about the size, they just want action and I plan on throwing em all back anyway.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
