      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 .

Turnover

Recommended Posts

Have any lakes turned over or are any close. I'd imagine some of the smaller lakes would be with the colder weather heading our way. Get ready. grin.gif

I have found the most lake turnover around 60-58 degrees. Much of it is dependent on summer temps and how cool the water is getting. We may be getting very close, on some really small lakes. This time of year i'll fish the bigger lakes, looking at the smaller ones from time to time, because they turn over later.

Pulaski was 53 on sunday evening. I was fishing and chatting with another gentleman. He caught a 35" pike the largest I have seen come from pulaski. It's to bad the city pulled the dock out so soon. The lake will not freeze another month.

Exactly how do you all define turnover? Technically, it is when the water on the top "layer" becomes more dense than the layers underneath. Well water is most dense @ 39°F (known physical properties of water) and not 58-60.... Just wondering. confused.gifconfused.gif

Smallie-h, that is true water is most dense at 39. But the bottom of a lake may warm to 50-60 degrees, than when the surface temps match that of the bottom, you get turn-over. Some lakes don't get a thermocline (ie Mille lacs) the bottom may be cooler than the surface but it still has a good oxygen at the bottom. Pulaski has very little oxygen below 35ft in august. I checked water temps in august was 55degres at 44ft, I could not check lower than that for now. I just purchased a temp recorder, you attach to a fishing line a lower to the bottom, it is to show the temp every 5 ft will be interesting to see what the temp is at 80 ft.

I was pulaski friday, the surface temp there was 50 degrees. If that would say any about clearwater, would figure it could be colder. That Clearwater is not as deep as Pulaski. I plan on going to clearwater either today or sunday.

Pulaski did turnover on monday. When I drove to check surface temp. the lake smelled of rotten eggs. Just I was told to watch (smell) for. Today's surf temp. 48 degrees

Buffalo, surface temp 45 degrees

Clearwater, surface temp 45 degrees

Time to hit the fall post turnover lakes.

      I have owned a place on Lake Vermilion(WE) since 2011 and have absolutely enjoyed every visit and season on the lake.  Our knowledge of the lake and fishing patterns have grown tremendously.  However, this experience has not translated success onto the ice.  We catch some fish, but feel like we should be doing better.  Typically we use small gear 1/16th or 32nd jigs with minnows, Spoons with just a minnow head or when we go after panfish we'll use wax worms.  We fish all the same spots and don't catch nearly as big or many fish.  When we do catch most of our fish, it's typically on mud flats and we drill a lot of holes.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!
