      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 .

Fished today 1/10/05 from 10:30-2:00. Caught limit of Perch ranging from 9"-12" fishing in 14 fow (Did a lot of sorting) ...also caught a couple cigar Walleyes mixed in with the Perch.

Was wondering if there are any decent Walleye bites in this lake? I would like to know time of day and depth of water and best time of year preferences.

I've fished the North end of the lake (out from the benton beach access) with spotty results. Uusally I go and will fish from about 3:00 to 7:30pm. Always will end up catching few fish. Perch, crappies, and walleyes. Usually walleyes range about 14"-16". Occasionally I will get a limit of eyes, when the bite is hot. Where did you go out of, my guess is that if you stayed there and fished at night you may be able to pick up a couple eyes.

Are they driving trucks out from the Benton Beach access yet? A couple of weeks ago I was out on the Rock and noticed people pulling fishhouses out from somewhere on the west side. Is that access open to the public?

Thanks,

Nels

Stellarfisher ,I've been going out of the county park access. Went out again this a.m. and did well on the Perch again, pretty much the same location as before. Just trying to stay away from the crowds. I will have to go in the evening and give it a go. Thanks for the imformation. cool.gif

Nells-Bells I havent gone out from the Benton Beach access but I have seen plenty of vehicle traffic in that area. I know that everywhere that I have been the ice has been over 2ft thick.

Little Rock Lake has four acess that i am aware of that are open to the public. The north end has benton beach, the west was the old paper mill (St. Regis)which is now a park, the south has a dirt road that comes off sucker creek road, and the state owned landing off highway 10. i have dirven on from all these except the highway 10. This one might be questionable because thats the channel that connect the lake to the river. I was fishing out there on monday on the west side and caught a few perch. I was catching a few crappies and walleyes out there a week ago but they moved out. I was fishing in 16 FOW. Theres lots of people fishing on the east side. Just wondering if anyone has had sucess there for some walleyes/crappies. Any info would be good. Thanks a bunch good luck!

The East side is dry. I talked to several people yesterday afternoon when I was out there and ony a couple perch have been caught by them or their families/friends. I fished it from about 3 til 7 and didn't get a nibble. I guess the North end by Benton beach and the south side of the main part of the lake are doing so-so.

      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

      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.
