      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 .

Kettle lake in Oakdale?

Recommended Posts

SCUMFROG

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.

Hwy 61 is the same as arcade - Its been a while but I think so on 61 then right at first chance then right again and go back under 36 - look around a little - u can see the boat access from 36 on the no side. Excellent bass lake and a few skis also!!

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'

      I was out on Hiniker Pond last night. Had no luck with fish but I was after dark. Straight out from the pier about 30 yards you got a solid 3.75 to 4 inches. Duck lake has about 5 inches. Henry had 4 inches last week. Not sure about this week.

        Doc was up there with a couple of his boys on Thursday fishing out of portables.  He gave me a call when he was on the ice.  I said, “. Let me guess what you got on”.  Red stripe Demon with a female fat head hooked through the pooper hole on the dead stick and a purple smelt rattling flyer with a minnow head on the other pole.  I nailed it.  He still uses a jiggle stick for his dead stick.  He had to sign off as a fish came in on the Vex.  Put it in the bucket Shaky.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      No Lake Trout in the lake?

      Miss the old days too shaky, we had some fun didn't we.  I don't miss working on the lake tho.
    • kelly-p
      Westwind, Roger's and JR's that I know of. Not sure of the cost.

      Roughly 11inches... there were a few brave people who drove mini vans out

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.
