      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 .

3/16/07 Report

mnvikings1

Did not fish on 3/15 because of the nasty weather conditions. Heavy snow, 20+ mph winds, not a good combo for Lake Winnie. Did go out on 3/16. We fished the South end of the lake exclusively on 3/16. Fished Slippery's Corner and several areas of past success all along the dropoff down well past Judds. Also ventured out towards a large group on Sugar Bar. We caught pleanty of small perch, they were very active. A guy would catch around 10 five to six inchers for every keeper. We ended up leaving the lake with 17 nice keepers. Our best luck was in 26-32 FOW along the South end dropoff. No specific location, we picked up a few here and a few there. Must have drilled 100 holes. Fished with everything from a deadstick, plain hook fathead combo to gold and watermelon colored buck shot spoons. Again, tons of lookers, just coaxing the larger fish to bite was the toughest part. Did manage to land an 8lb Northern on my ultra light outfit. That was fun. Again, not many Minnesotans out on Winnie. Come on folks, we need to get out there and enjoy our Lake!! All of our perch are going across the border and getting fried up during Packer games!! GRRRR!! Good luck fishing!

Come on Colt44, your a "Yooper", don't rope yourself in with the "Cheeseheads"!! I went to college and now work with some UP'ers, most of them are Vikes fans, except for one misguided soul from Ironwood! You don't wear your blaze orange deer hunting suit out there fishing too do you?? That is another tell tale sign out on Winnie - Orange suit = Wisconsin perch jerker!! confused.gif HAHA!! This is all in good fun, I'm not trying to upset our friends to the east. Anyways, let us know how the fishing is/was for you. I grew up on Leech Lake and Fished Leech and Winnie my whole life until my job forced a move to the Metro. Now I must commute for my outings up there. Looking foward to open water. I will be on Winnie playing bumper boats on opener with every other jerk opening weekend. Can't wait. Godd luck fishing!!

Hey Vikings fans what does 0 and 2 mean to you?

I eat my Perch in Minnesota. I just add a little Green food coloring to the batter!

They taste so much better that way.

Let me rephrase my prior post

I cringed at the fact I was misunderstood

Vikings 0 Packers 2, if I’m correct that was the conference record between these teams in 2006.

I ate my Perch and watched my team win both games. They were however caught, cleaned and cooked in Minnesota So the answer is no I’m not a Vikings fan.

No problem. It's all in fun anyway. I heard the Packers were looking at Randy Moss. I refuse to watch any game he plays in regardless of what team he's on so I probably will have to be a Bears fan if it happens.

I couldn't agree with you more....but then a small voice in my head says...last year for Favre...needs help on the receiving core to balance the effectiveness of the offense, maybe a 1 yr deal for Moss??.....sheesh.....can't believe I even visualized that! confused.gifgrin.gif

STINKEYE

Sounds to me like mnvikings1 ought to pay more attention to finding his own spots to fish and less attention to where the other vehicles state of origin is. We were out in the Winnie area this past weekend and never set foot on Big Winnie and you know what, most of the plates we seen were from MN. There is so much good water to fish, if you don't like seeing all the WI people out on Winnie, go to another lake. People are going to take trips to go fishing, whats the difference if they come from Rochester or Madison? Now for the report, cause this is what this thread is for. We did try Little Cutfoot and hit some nice perch but most of them seemed like (and were) wormy, I've caught fish there in other years and they were less wormy. We moved on shortly there after. Found that the Gill's (sunfish as our friends from MN like to call them) were hitting most other lakes we tried, they fry up just as nice as perch! Yes, I'm from WI and I like to eat a few meals of panfish every year! Go Pack!

The question is stinkeye, do you wear your orange deer hunting suit when you fish on our beloved Lake Winnibigoshish?? HAHA!! I knew one "Cheesehead" would get pushed to his limits by some of these posts (all very mild and in good fun by the way). Oh well, I grew up on this lake and have no problem enjoying her bounties, thanks for the advice about finding "my own spot to fish". Maybe some of us need to find our OWN LAKE TO FISH, IN OUR OWN STATE huh?? Colt44, he got crabby at me so I had to fire back, sorry!! Good luck fishing!!!

No, I got it Colt44, at least you can joke around a little and have a sense of humor. Have you or anyone on here heard of anyone having any luck towards the South end of the lake yet? Moses, Sugar or anywhere else in that vicinity? Our luck this past week was pretty limited along the drops on the South end. Usually getting lake into March, the South end of the lake heats up too? Anyone?

      Is it always impossible to get a hold of Jeff?? It took me like 8 calls to get a hold of him, brought my boat down after I got a hold of him. I told him I was hoping to use it this weekend for one last trip...I've called him multiple times for an update and he never answers... Seems odd for a business.

      Recreational netting for whitefish and tullibee (cisco) is anticipated to open on several Schedule I Lakes in the Grand Rapids fisheries work area beginning in late October, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Schedule I Lakes, which are more susceptible to sudden changes that impact water temperatures, will be opened and closed on a 48-hour notice posted at lake accesses, other public places, and the DNR website. Schedule II Lakes, will open Nov. 3. Schedule I Lakes (48 hour notice) Anticipated opening dates are as follows: Friday, Oct. 27 through Sunday, Dec.3, for Deer (near Deer River), and Turtle (3.5 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Side and South Sturgeon (1.75 inch mesh). Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 10, for Big Balsam and Nashwauk (1.75 inch mesh). Schedule II Lakes Lakes open to whitefish and cisco sport netting Friday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 10: Bass (north basin). Ball Club. Bowstring*. Little Bowstring. Cut Foot Sioux*. Deer (near Effie). Grave. Jessie. Maple. Pokegama. Round (near Squaw Lake –1.75 inch mesh). Rush Island. Sand (near Max)*. Swan.  (1.75 inch mesh) Twin Lakes (near Marble). Winnibigoshish* and Little Winnibigoshish* (1.75 inch mesh). *Bowstring, Cut Foot Sioux, Sand, Winnibigoshish and Little Winnibigoshish are designated infested waters because of the presence of faucet snails or zebra mussels. Nets and equipment used in infested waters may not be used in any other waterbody unless they have been dried for ten days or frozen for two days. Fishing regulations require that: Netters purchase both a whitefish netting license and angling license. A person may use only one gill net, not exceeding 100 feet in length and 3 feet in width. One end of net must have a pole, stake, or buoy projecting at least two feet above the surface of the water or ice. Nets must have an identification tag attached near the first float of the end that is projecting from the surface of the water or ice. Identification tags must be a minimum of 2 ½ inches by 5/8 inch permanently bearing the name and address of the owner. Identification tags for marking nets are provided by the owner. Nets may not be set after sunset or raised before sunrise. All gill nets must be set and lifted by the licensee only. Anyone assisting in the taking of whitefish or ciscoes must have proper licensing. Nets must be tended at least once every 24 hours and all gamefish and non-target species must be immediately released from the net. A net may not be set in any water deeper than six feet. A net may not be set within 50 feet of another net. Minimum gill net mesh size shall be no less than 1-3/4 or 3-1/2 inch stretch measure depending on the lake (see full list of lake and size regulations online). Nets used in designated infested waters must be dried for a minimum of 10 days or frozen for 2 days before using in a different water body. Nets should be dried for 10 days or frozen for 2 before moving from any lake to another. Nets used in spiny water flea and/or zebra mussel infested waters should be not used in any other waterbody Nets should be transported in sealed container. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be bought or sold. Whitefish and ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting may not be used as bait. Within the Leech Lake Reservation boundaries, the possession limit for whitefish taken by sport gill-netting is 25, and the possession limit for ciscoes taken by sport gill-netting is 50. Net placement should not inhibit use of the lake by other boaters. About 700 people obtain special permits to net for whitefish-tullibee each year. The DNR bases netting schedules on expected water temperatures, fish abundance and vulnerability of game fish. As the water temperature cools, game fish head to deeper water and whitefish-tullibee come to shallow water for fall spawning.  Netting is allowed when there is little chance that game fish populations would be negatively impacted by recreational netting in shallow water. Find information about sport netting by lake, minimum mesh sizes, and fishing regulations at http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/fishing/whitefish-tullibee.pdf or contact the DNR’s Grand Rapids area office at 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744, or call 218-328-8836.

      It seemed cheap to me for all the functionality.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.

            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.
