      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 .

Wall Lake info.

Recommended Posts

Iron Cowboy

Hey guys, Planning on coming up to look at a place on wall lake but its on the south end of the lake and there seems to be some sort of channel that seperates it from the bigger north end. Dnr report says something about unnavigable? Anyone have any idea what this is all about?

Any more info in general about this lake would be greatly appreciated such as how green / algea bloom it gets in the summer for swimming or what the rec. traffic is like etc.

thanks, iron_cowboy_69@yahoo.com

Lived darn near on that lake a whole summer...fished it almost daily.

The north/south parts are navigable. To the far west shoreline, off the end of a long, shallow underwater point there is a section where boats can get thru. Go slow. grin.gif

South end is deeper with not much structure, stiff drop offs along shore.

I don't recall much of an algae bloom in the lake, however, I can't rule it out.

It's a nice lake. Swam in it many times. Traffic wise, not horrible...

Not too much for sandy shorelines if that's your thing. The long submerged point that is between the north and south end is a nice spot to swim. There are homes with swimming beaches but just as many that are a bit weedy and mucky. It can have a bloom happen but since the septics around the lake were updated it seems to have improved water quality.

Fishing can be OK. Kinda like most lakes that size, when it's hot it gets pounded and takes a few years to rebound. Recreational traffic on the lake is not awful but can be busy on weekends. All in all, a nice lake with a good location.

Make certain you check what your property taxes are going to be on that lake place. Here in OtterTax County there appears to be no upper limit. Lake cabin owners are a prey species in this part of the state.

I've lived on the lake for the past 7 years. I've never seen more than 6 or 8 boats at one time ...even on the opener. The south end gets very little boat traffic. Fishing is great. It's sooo quiet at night you can hear a mouse f*rt from 500 yards. There is an alge bloom that lasts for about 2 weeks but you'll get that on most lakes. You need to check the yard once the frost goes out as some of the homes here have "wet" yards due to springs and run off.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
