      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 .

Breakers!

I was out on Gull this evening and over by Rocky Point I saw a bunch of activity. Police, Tow trucks and things of that nature. I didn't get too close but I am pretty sure they were pulling a vehicle from the water. It looked to me like a vehicle attempted to cross the massive breaker that splits the lake. I don't want to jump to conclusions but what were they thinking! Does anyone have any more details. Just curious?

Was anyone hurt? I am not murphy, but he is a friend of a friend. I got the house I was responsible for off the lake last night. Was very close to this murphy you speak of though. I left the spot because thursday night and friday it was like a circus out there. I don't know what happened but was doing well until Barnum and Baily's came to town so had to move unfortunatly.Were you out on the lake yesterday or did you here of this ordeal through the grape vine. If you were how was the fishing.

These pressure ridges are so darn dangerous to drive across. Every year somone goes through the ice by just not using common sense and staying away from channels, points, ridges, etc. Hopefully no one was hurt! I live on the west side of gull and if I hear any more I will pass it on.

Kind of sad to see the season come to an end... All and all a good winter experience on gull lake. Caught walleyes all through the season. This last week has been quite good. Three walleyes last night on fatheads under a bobber. 5 the night before in the snow both jigging and under a bobber. No large fish but a number of good eating size fish. Also lots of small fish which bodes well for the next few years!

Now it may be time to make a few trips up to Lake of the Woods o Red Lake. Also will start looking for some nice sunfish in our area.

I just retired and now have lots of time to fish. Years ago we use to go up to Pelican Lake near Cook MN and Lake Lyda near Pelican Rapids... Both Lakes were great in March for very large Bluegills.. The larges Bluegill that I have ever seen caught in MN - 2 lbs 5 oz came in March on Lake Lyda. With fishing pressure as heavy as it is these days I am not sure if any lakes in MN produce fish like these two use to.

It's geat to be back in central MN after being away for the past 15 years.

Welcome back JConrad. I to had a good year on Gull and the amount of fish I catch each winter reassures me what a great fishery it is. I never did get that walley for the wall I was looking for. There is always next year. Maybe I should put away my golf clubs and fish the lake in the summer... or maybe not.

Salmon I'm the guy that was fishing right next to your house when you brought the circus to town. I'm also the guy that you guys wont call anymore for cards because your scared. Hope you got Lil Yar put away right so we can make a couple trips to Lake Scuzzy this year. In Owatonna the farms are only there to hold the Pheasants. And my new lab is rearing to go. There's also a nice golf course down here so come on down and take your beating. Joe as far as why the one ton deuly crossed the breaker. My question is why is it on the lake? I get tripped out with my half ton. He probably wanted to save time by not driving around. As soon as I'm done grinding my reels I'll be heading up to Red hopefully in the next two weekends this double storm is already setting me back so I'll be in touch. Thanks for getting the big shack off and storing it for us. I'm glad you got some use out of it this year. Salmon I'm 99% sure you are who I think you are so if I'm wrong forget what I said.

I would not put away the golf clubs either.... I plan on playing a lot this summer.

I will also fish a lot this spring. Caught a 30 inch walleye last year end of May plus a good number of fish between 25 and 27 inches... Spring on Gull is good expecially in the evenings and after dark.

Hit em straight!

SNOW!!! Wow I'm sure you guys are feeling it too but we got a wall mounter down here 34+ inches since saturday night. This will definatly hinder lake travel. Was planning a trip up to the Chisago lakes area tomorrow for some Crappie action but I don't know how the Chev will handle all of this. What's the story up there Joe-Seppi anything better wouldn't mind hitting a few lakes up there.

Not sure on totals but I would say that we have between 16 and 22 inches. Was thinking about Red next weekend but not 100 percent sure. A few buddies are thinking of going. I would just be tagging along because I don't think that the Somoma would handle the lakes. Still snowing...

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T

      Here are some of the toads we have been catching on the Rum River this summer.  The biggest has been 19 1/4 inches.

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. 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. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
