      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 .

Am coimg up this week end to try for some Tullibees, When looking for a place to fish what should I guy look for. And what kind of fishing set up should I use. My plan is to look for step drop off's to very deep water and take a angle eye jr (witch is a gigging spoon)take the treble hook off and run some line down about 6 inches with a single hook and put a wax worm or a minnow. Dose my plan sound about right. Any advise would be great Thank you!!

Sounds about right, I like using regular Dare Devils in a silver or gold color. I also will supsend the dropper hook anywhere from 12-24 inches below.

My best spots are on inside crooks adjacent to steep breaks, or even some of the deepest spots in the lake will hold fish. They can be very selective on color so I usually have about 6 rods ready, red, gold, green, black, blue, and so on. Another major would be to have electronics and don't be affraid to look right under the ice I have caught them before with my flasher actually in the hole. They are a fun fish to target and the nice thing about this year is that a guy doesn't have to get up so early.

Good Luck

I can tell you that they must be biting....

I have a friend that works some really weird hours and days and while I went to lunch he snuck in and put one in my desk.

They have a distinct smell... The kids should enjoy that the rest of the day....

We used to take a rod and tie on 2 large silver dare devil type lures(no hooks), and jig that thing hard. Gramps was a believer that it would attract the tullies. And I cant disagree. Seemed to work good.

We would then just use crappie types of baits with the waxie on it.

Keep a watchful eye down the hole as daylight starts to show up (if you set up in a house). You can actually see the fish come by in schools literally within feet of the bottom of the ice. Its almost surreal. You think you are seeing things, but then you realize is a massive school of tullies whizzing by.

Grandad -

Good tips by everyone, especially about having lots of color set ups availble. Sometimes they move thru pretty quickly and it would be nice to have a couple of setups at the ready should the fish prove fussy.

PRFisher - Pew!

Oh man! Excellent smoked! I tend to like the smaller ones, about a pound or so.

Brine them up in a nice brown sugar brine or any other brine you like, and smoke away.

Several years a go I caught a bunch on LOW. I gilled, and gutted them, and then took a grocery sack full into Fergus Locker. They brined and smoked them and charged me 7 bucks.

I had 2 or three at home, gave a couple to my dad when he was in the nursing home, and took the rest to work. They were gone in a heartbeat.

Ice flies.. Like I said in my first post I use gold and silver flashers, always have... Not to say that other colors don't work, but as far as jigs go I like to have a assortment of color. I was out on West Battle Tuesday night and that will be the last time I drive out on the lakes this year. The ruts in the road where about a foot or so and the water was running down the holes everywhere. Plus if you go way out you will have to cross that ice ridge, lets just say that was a little scary.

Okay. So they ARE edible! Appreciate all the information. I guess that Fergus Locker place must be where the boys cut all those nice steaks for me?

If I can get strongly motivated I might go git me some Tullibees. But there is so much to do.... frown.gif

was out on molly stark last monday and caught six decent keepers.. They mainly bit on the still line with a bobber and waxie.. They would bite the jigging line but they would bite pretty lite.. a little pinkish white little tear drop did the trick.. marked a lot of fish on the vexlar but it was prertty slow.. I also heard they were biting on star pretty good... Good luck!

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
