      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 .

I was out on Twin Lake today the wind was tough out there. Didn't manage very many pannies out there. The ice was good used 4 wheeler out there and worked just fine. Anyone getting report of that area lately.

I assume you guys are talking about Twin lakes by Nowthen. I grew up on that lake. I have a friend who lived on the north end and owned the little island. Most years it wasn’t even and island. I used to work at Nowthen café and the old guys said Twin was an aqua ducked that joined deep under the earth with other small lakes in area. Like the one behind Green Bergs Implement. In the mid eighties, I had one of those old flasher with lantern batteries and I graphed depths around 100 feet deep in middle. I was out there 5 or 6 years ago and only could find around 70 feet deep. I figure with time sediment builds up and fills lake. With all the farming that used to go on around there, I would suspect this is what filled the bottom. For a small lake, it sure was deep. Caught a lot of crappie and northern out of there. At Ebners bait, way back when. I heard of a larger walleye caught in Twin. That was in the eighties as well. Anyone remember old Buck from the east side. He lived on hill in the center area. I also knew the Anderson’s, that bought the old roller rink on the north east side. Haven’t talked with them for years. Now a days, I fish it more so in summer. Our family picnic is there this year in July. I will report after I go there.

Good luck,

SHACKBASH

I believe zzap was talking about nowthen, not sure which lake river huntfish was refering to.

Shackbash, was twin (nowthen) a good fish producer last summer? Northerns, pannies, walleye?

The fishing at Twin is always good. If you know were to go. I have caught crappies in the summer in 35-40 fow. The northerns are always shallow, but once I did catch one in 25 fow though the ice. I though fur sure it was a walleye. I though they had stocked walleye in past years. I could be wrong. I also did hear in the eighties the lake froze out. I do not know how this could be with the depth the lake has. I never saw it. During summer, stay to your right when going out. Look for structure in and around 15-25 feet of water during middle summer. If nothing is biting, go shallow. I always meant to try the middle for deep walleyes,

But never did. When you get to 70 FOW, what could be down there. Good luck!

Thanks for the info, I may take my boy and try from the Park dock when some time soon. Had any luck fishing from the dock?

I'll report back with results.

I tried the pier once last summer to get the feel for a new 6 1/2' rod. By mid-June it'll be pretty well lily-padded in, but you can catch all the SMALL sunnies you want, often even on bare hooks. I'd think it'd be a good place to take a young'un to keep them interested - you can practically sight-fish the spots around the dock.

I haven't looked at the ice condition in a couple of weeks, but I'd bet it's gone by now.

Good luck

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"
