      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 .

styx, I went into Lakemaster and found the general area, however it does not specifically name Terrys. I know I can drive right to it as we access there to hit 8 mile from the west. Maybe someone else has a different map, perhaps Gizmo Guy, he's got all the toys. Sorry, Bill

No problem guys, glad to help. I will give you a freebie also. Straight out from Terrys there is an entrance to a small lagoon. Right in front of that entrance is prime during the day with a north wind and can be absolutely deadly trolling cranks at night through that area laugh.gif

Paul,

How deep of water would you fish during the day??? With the forecast next week temps being in the 50's, I may head up .

How have you been doing during the nite bite , colors, sizes confused.gif Always willing to read, and purchase cranks, and most importantly learn from everyone.

Thanks for the info!!!!!!

Geez Paul! Giving away the farm grin.gif FYI you can fish that spot during the day and pull walleyes out of it. Done it trolling and slip bobbering fatheads. Usually a few boats hanging around there though. Few weeks ago I saw a 28" eye get caught there around noon. You do not need to be very deep. 10ft max. The trick is getting on the lip of the first little break from 4 to 10ft. During the day lean toward natural colors Tennessee shad, blue chrome etc. At night I would switch to perch patterns. If you feel like there is some great perch fishing in this area during the day (that's why the walleyes are there). You have to do some searching to find the school but some nice jumbos can be caught.

Mark,

thanks for the good information. What determines during the day to either troll cranks or slip bobber? (wind conditions ??)

I slip bobber when I am chasing perch. Find the perch (they will be shallow on rock about 4ft depth) daytime walleyes will be close by. Anchor along that break I mentioned. Cast out to deeper water for eyes shallow for perch. If I were only fishing for eyes I'd troll. If a certain spot put out fish in two or three consecutive passes consider anchoring up and working slip bobbers for a awhile. Then back to trolling. FYI if you do find a honey hole for perch be sure to be on that spot at sunset and slip bobber. You will have a pretty good walleye bite. After it gets dark trolling is all I do. One last thing for slip bobbering use 1/8 jigheads gold if sunny orange if not and bend the hook tip up and to the side a bit. Helps hooking up on the eyes and the perch.

Mark,

Thanks for all the info. There is so much info from everyone here. I do bend the hooks with 1/8 oz or sometimes I use a little smaller jig (glow jigs). Are you heading up anytime soon??

I am hoping to be up there tomorrow from 2pm until whenever. I need to get my tow vehicle out of the shop first so it's not a for sure thing. If I can't hit the big pond I will be trolling on Minnetonka.

Good luck if you get out. Still trying to find a way to go Sat afternoon/eve. What would be your top choices for cranks on Mille Lacs (sizes and colors).

If you ever have an opening sometime, give me an e-mail mpothen@intricon.com. (w) 651-604-9540.

Husky Jerks 12 or 14 similar sized Rogues. and Rapala floaters. I always have HJs in clown, fire tiger, glass perch, Tennessee shad and blue chrome with me. Rogue lazer craw and the chrome with black stripes. Fire tiger cloudy nights clown on clear and glass perch for either are my best producers. Need to experiment to get the color right. It really helps to have three in the boat so you can get it dialed in.

Mark,

Thanks for all your valuable info!!!! It is a great help.

Just curious, any rule of thumb or what determines to try Husky Jerks over Shad Raps??

Time to pick up some Cranks this weekend. Good luck this weekend!! Post your results or give an e-mail next week.

If you head up next week , give me a shout if you have an open seat. I'll contribute to the "gas fund".

This time of year I don't use shad raps. I have found the minnow bait profile and action to be a lot more effective.

you are absolutely right! the facts of the matter are mille lacs is a public water way and more and more people are fishing there all the time. that same confrontation must have occurred many times in the history of the lake and will continue in different forms for as long as mille lacs and humans are here. we all have to learn to live with each other, EVERYWHERE!

If he thinks he had a spot to "fish alone" and that no one else ever fished that spot before your post, then he is clearly the dumbass.

Universally loved minus 1 is still pretty good. If you have any info or recommendations for baits, colors, times, depths, presentations, size of fish caught and numbers of fish caught right in front of that lagoon, I hope you share them too wink.gif

That is way offsides to me. I live on Minnetonka and have bass and musky fisherman going by all day long. I even have them casting at my dock while I am on it. I could have that guy's attitude but I don't. I just wave Hi and ask how's the fishing. They have the right to be there. FYI I had another owner in that area come out and ask me sarcasticly if I wanted to buy his dock so it would be easier to fish there. I countered with how about a month lease for October with an option to buy and I'd throw in a limit or two of walleyes as a bonus all with a smile. He softened up a bit and we chatted for awhile about the fishing in that area. Point there is it goes both ways. Those lake owners have paid and continue to pay via taxes for that property. Let's be considerate no matter what they do or say.

I agree Mark, I live on a lake also and I happen to have some of the best fishing on the lake right in front of my house. It's not a huge secret or anything, other people fish near my dock everyday. But if someone put the exact location on this website it would completely destroy that spot. I don't own the water but we need to use our heads when giving an exact location. Lure color, speed, time, depth and general location are all very helpful. Naming an exact spot is destructive and disrespectful to anyone who has put in the time to find that spot on there own. There's a difference between a well known spot and a boat parking lot which can now be found out in front of the lagoon by Terry's.

Paul, you have to feel sorry for the guy that wrote that letter to you. It is obvious that he dislikes humans therefore he wants to be left alone. Consequently his social skills have not allowed him to find any company that he might enjoy him, vice versa. Some people choose to go through life miserable. By the way where I'm from you would never talk that way to someone who knew where your cabin was.

Good point PieEyed. Fortunately for us, Mille Lacs remains one of the premier walleye lakes in the state with a very strong and healthy stock of walleyes. I've personally seen excellent, yet much smaller and unregulated panfish lakes completely destroyed due to "word of mouth" resulting in extreme pressure. With responsible catch and release practice, regulation and proper handling of fish, Mille Lacs should continue to produce a healthy stock despite the pressure at the recent "hotspots".

It was good chatting with you at the access early this morning. Unfortunately for me, there will be ice the next time I make it on the lake. Give me a shout if you're out early ice. Chances are I'll be hitting a few early ice "hotspots" of my own.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!  
    • Wanderer
      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!
