      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 .

Warroad Access?

Recommended Posts

shae1986

Just wondering guys if you can still drive the trucks out on the warroad access there by the casino for pike fishing. Trying to decide whether i need to get the trailer and pull the wheeler up, which i dont want to do for just a day trip up there. Thanks

I went on at Springsteel yesterday with no probs. Appeared that folks were getting out at Warroad from what I could see from the N. Iffin the access at Warroad is impassable you would be able to get on the ice at Springsteel depending on just when you're planning on going of course.

Shae,

Go to springsteele and take the sharpest left turn you can take right off the access. The so called road takes you over some smaller rocks that on normal water levels I'm sure aren't visiable. Head straight NW about three miles, oh are you only pike fishing??? If so thats' where I'm giving you our info. If you have a gps on hand go until you almonst run into the main point (sorry don't know the name of it) we were out about1/4mile from what you can see is a camper up on shore in about 11ft down to 6th of water with tip ups.

Regarding quick strike rigs, I didn't purchase them but some of my buddies did before we got there and at the bait shop in town they had dead bait harnesses that are "L" shaped and stuck into the ciscos and then you placed the treple where you wanted it. This set up was AWESOME and was 100% successful compared to the quick strike system on are other tip ups. 80/20 of our pike where on live suckers so I would look into bringing up some live bait too. Between 7 guys and four days of tip up fishing we went threw about 10lbs of deadbait.

Good luck and if you want exact cordinates let me know???

Yeah this is strickly a pike fishing adventure for me and my buddy. He was up a week ago and had tough luck out of warroad so we haven't decided where to go yet. Thanks for the offer of cordinates, i hate asking for them but if you feel like sending them too me my email address is shaex001@mail.crk.umn.edu.

Also did you have any luck on live bait or mainly dead. Usually i use both, but not having to pay the money for live minnows would be nice too, but i'll probably pick some up for saftey's sake.

We also have smelt hooks, have you ever used them, i havent in probably 6 years and being 20 now i was a youngen and cant remember if they worked or not. Thanks for all your help guys.

I would like to thank you fiskyknut and especially you meat-grinder for your help. I will lay out the story for you tomorrow with pictures since i am a little too tired tonight to upload the photos. But we didn't do great by any means but had a lot of fun. We ended up catching 4 a 34, 32, 28, and a 21 inch northern, of course all released to be caught another day. Missed a couple others but i can say i was 3 for 3 on flags and catches. All fish were caught on Hairing (sp). It was a great day with probably the best weather i have ever had in my last 8 years of going up there. Thanks Again.

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Any thoughts, opinions on the new lighted jigs from tundra tackle. Anyone seen them in any store. I could only find on-line. https://www.tundratackleco.com/collections/frontpage

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
