      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 .

mussky with shadling on nest

Recommended Posts

angler903

I hooked up with a BIG musky on Nest. Had it to boat twice, danced twice got 13seconds of video with digital camera, then knot came loose.

So anyone see musky with blue shadling (type of crankbait) dead take measurements and let me know.

I never caught a 50" fish but this thing had to break that mark.

oh oh watch the boat landing fill up now, not many people new that secret but the locals. those fish were stocked in there many years ago when i was a kid and im 42 now, i once was out there with some freinds, we had a king fisher that would keep flying around the boat till we would throw a dead minnow out in the water. well we were getting ready to leave so we threw all the dead minnows out in the water and that king fisher would pick up as many as he could at one time. well he came back for the second mouth full and when he was picking up a fish a musky came right out of the water and grabed the bird, it was an awsume sight for that bird never did come back up.

There aren't enough musky's in there to fish if you ask me. It was only a few that got out when the DNR ponds in New London flooded and a few musky's got out. Defienetly not a fishable population

Eyehead, I would agree that any muskies in nest lake are rare. If they don't show up in DNR nets then not to popular. But then they don't show up in to many surveys due to the nets used. Harriet lake, in Minneapolis only had 1 and guys beat that lake up hard. I have caught several muskies on harriet my largest was 44.

i really don't know how many are in there because i don't fish muskie, but i have seen them caught there a couple different times. so im going to agree with you guys that it wouldn't be a lake to go looking for muskie. man im so use to the quiet lakes in southern minnesota, then i moved north and the lakes keep getting worse with jet ski's, skiers, and people that have no cares about the fisherman. that is why i started to fish private lakes, and catfishing.

jigginjim and all other fisher people, check out my question in the mille lacs forum,(big fish in private lakes) not many people with answeres, and we all know why. that is why they call them private. if it is not in the dnr lake finder for people to get info what can a person say. and i have been whatching and there has been over 100 people that has veiwed this with only a couple comments.

I have fished that lake pretty hard for about 4 years for Pike. I caught quite a few nice ones and some big ones. But in that time I have never caught a muskie. I may of had a follow one time but you really can't tell underwater.

My biggest pike out of there is 39".

In that time I only heard of 2 muskies being caught. One was a 51" (or something) and the other was a small one caught at a resort.

I also have heard of people spearing what they thought was a average size pike that turned out to be a muskie too. They are there, just not a lot.

BTW, Green Lake also has muskies in it.

      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
