      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 .

Ash Lake

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.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.
