      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 see guys use smelt when lakers down deep, but what do you guys use rest of year? In May, June, July? Do you use flashers/dodgers all year long?? And when does spring/ early summer fishing usually start up?? And does anybody fish up there in Octerber for salmon??

May first I will use smelt if the water temps are not 42 degrease I will fish in 90 to 150 feet of water. Right on the bottom with fly and dodgers. When the temp warms up I will troll the point with stick baits and as the water is getting warmer I will use dips-yes and down riggers not to deep 10 to 40 feet depending on the temp? the fish move where the bait is it is hard to calculate where they are moving to? the pattern changes fast and so does the water temp. I think fishing as often as you can in the spring you will teach your self so much that what was working will not work the next day why? well I ask myself that every day the big lake is hard to fish and the more you fish it the easier it gets I hope we helped if not would be happy to help you one on one St and northlander know how to get ahold of me if you need more help cool.gif

The point that Tom is referring to is Park Point the beach between the Duluth Piers and the Superior entry. In October Lake Trout season is closed. It closes on the last weekend of September. If you are looking for a few salmon try trolling in front of the river mouths on the north shore.

Well guys, I did know that lake trout closes, just wondering if anybody trys for salmon and does any good?? Or does every one just call it quits when lakers closes?? Another dumb question!! You say you troll to the point, so you troll towards shore then?? Do you guys use flasher/dodgers all summer then too?? Or did you answer that question already??

Have you fished superior or are you planning a trip? If you're new to the game the transition of baits follows water temp, not the calendar. Stickbaits, spoons, then dodgers/flashers and flies. Sometimes i think the fishing can be more speed related than lure selection. My advice is to watch this forum preceding your trip and see what's going on...or look back at past posts and note the progression of methods throughout the season. Usually a guy can't go wrong running spoons. That's probably gonna be your best crack at a salmon too.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.

      Heading up to Beacon Harbor tomorrow for a couple days. Hopeful for decent weather and hungry fishes!

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
