      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 think that's what it's called. Hwy 36 goes over it, off 35E. What's in that lake? How do you get to the ramps? Any special rules?

It's Keller Lake. You access it on a little ramp of of Arcade just north of 36. You can also get on Gervias with this ram.

You can take County Rd C west from Hwy 61 to Keller Pkwy and turn left. Or you can take Roselawn Ave west from Hwy 61 to Arcade St and turn right.(first right)

Your best bet for bass/muskie/walleye is going to be around the point on the east side of the lake. Basically, right when you get out of the channel, directly to your right on the mian lake.

I have had a couple 2 ski days (nothing bigger than 36", but fun) and a day where my and bro got two twin 21" eyes. The point goes out quite far under water into the lake, and is really sort of the only main structure in the whole darn lake. There are little points and humps, etc. but nothign else on that scale.

That is the lake I learned to fish rubber worms, and on our one trip this year, we caught a ton of bass on plastic. Still the best bait for bass on that lake.

Also got a 38" pike several years ago (released) so there is potential for some biggies smile.gif

Have fun! Quite busy lake, but not early in the morning.

Try the carp fishing if the bass are not hitting. I did it a couple of weekends ago and it was a lot of fun on a very hot day when I did not feel like working for bass.

Box - Do you and your brother hunt geese during the early season? If you two have any open space in a field, can I come along? Still working on Pam for the new boat but it is not looking too good. I may need to start looking at used boats.

Hey Mike,

Our one close field is not allowing anyone to hunt this year, bummer. They are afriad of liability since the value is now up so high, and the surrounding retail areas are closing in. So that stinks. Oh well. I don't have any other near by permission. Have to work on that for next year.

I doubt I will go early season this year. We could go up west at buddies near Fergus, but I will prolly be at lake fishing smallies smile.gif If you are interested in that, Erik might be coming up for a day over labor day, and prolly has room.

Otherwise going to NoDak next weekend to do a little work and buddies place, and hang out with our friends who farm up there. If interested in NoDak hunting in real season, that might work. About $100 for license, but no lodging cost anymore, and about 18,000 acres from just our friends, much less the rest of un-posted areas.

Talk to you later. I just painted a new duck boat I got, and will keep that around here this fall. 14'

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T

      Here are some of the toads we have been catching on the Rum River this summer.  The biggest has been 19 1/4 inches.

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
