      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 .

Hi All- will be fishing this lake/area next late July w/ the family-booked a cabin on Ash( just north of Orr) for a week. Anyone have any info/tips for us-we have three little ones also and want them to get into some panfish,etc. Also, any other area lakes close by worth checking out? No-ones "spot on a spot"-just a little guidance/tips would be greatly appreciated by us and the kids! Thanks, 8-Ball.

NEVER FISHED ASH, BUT WE TALKED TO GUYS WITH 45K BASS BOATS HEADED UP THERE WHEN WE WERE ON THE WAY TO CATCH A TON OF CRAPPIES AND WALLEYES ON THE SMALL LAKE THAT WE VISIT. I WOULD THINK THAT WOULD INDICATE SMALLIES ARE REASONABLY ABUNDANT ON ASH.

PELICAN ON THE OTHER HAND USUALLY IS GOOD FOR LARGE NUMBERS OF SMALL PIKE, NICE LARGE AND SMALL MOUTHS, BLUE GILLS AND CRAPPIES AND NOT TOO FAR FROM ASH. JUST LOOK FOR THE BIG ROCKS AND SHALLOW WEEDY BAYS FOR THOSE FISH ON PELICAN.

IF YOU GET BORED OR DONT CATCH MUCH, GIVE ELEPHANT A SHOT FOR CRAPPIES. THEY SHOULD BE GOING WELL THIS TIME OF YEAR AND THAT IS A SMALL LAKE. ALSO A GREAT POPULATION OF WALLEYES IN ELEPHANT. IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT ELEPHANT, POST YOUR EMAIL AND I WILL SEND YOU A MARKED UP MAP IN PDF FORMAT. SINCE YOU MENTIONED LITTLE ONES I WOULD BE MORE THAN WILLING TO TRY AND GET YOU ON A SPOT. I HAVE LITTLE ONES AND IT IS PAINFUL TO SIT FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS WITH THEM IN THE BOAT WHEN THEY ARE NOT CATCHING ANYTHING.

GOOD LUCK UP THERE. PLEASE POST HOW YOU DO.

I would appreciate a report when you return from your tirp. I've driven by Ash for 25 years on the way north and never have stopped there to fish. I always see boats parked on the point located in just about the middle of the lake.

I've waited 25 years so another one doesn't matter to me. Check the archives under the Kabetogama index. I recall several past threads on Ash Lake.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day
