      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 .

Sounds like you are heading in the right direction. The past two weekend I have had good luck on the other side of pine it 23-26 foot of water. I will be up there the same time but I am heading out to 5 mile reef with my Dad, Mom, and Sister. Should be a fun trip. I have usually had pretty decent luck this time of year on 5 mile.

I found the gps coordinates for 5 mile last year by doing a search on the this forum. Twelve & 16 are available too.

Try setting the search to go back 2 or 3 years.

Labby,

Going out of the Warroad city docks (mouth of the river), head out Northwest well, 5 miles out and there you have it. Take a look at any lake map and it’s basically right in the middle of Muskeg Bay. I haven't heard if there are any houses out there yet – I would assume so with this cold snap we are in. "REEL ADVENTURES" or the bed & breakfast as many of you may know it by typically haul their houses out there. As of Monday they were going to see about pulling some houses out there. They generally have a bomber trail that heads out that way too and typically a truck path parallel to that. Usually, there is a marked path as well. I haven't been up to the lake to verify this…just based off of the past years.

If you have wheelers, you shouldn't have an issue at all.

If you go off of Springsteel you go straight east to

get to 5 mile. So I think 5 mile is NorthEAST out of

Warroad public landing. Northeast, or East Northeast

right Vexi man?

Yes Reel Adventure Fish out there and that is who I am going out with since I am taking my family with me. They were going to be pulling house out the end of this week. It is 5 mile NE of Warroad Docks. I never have driven out here myself I have only went with Reel Adventures but it probably is just as easy to head out from springsteel as warroad docks. Watch for cracks there are usually some out there.

Thanks for the info,

I think we will be staying in the Pine Island area this time being we have young kids with, Any depths in that area producing better recently, I usually try shallower then deeper but we may just pick a spot in the low 20,s so we dont have to move as much with the kids. I have had better luck in the past closer to the gap has anyone fished in that area lately

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
