      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.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
