      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 .

fished rose twice last year and got some nice eyes each time. Seemed that most of the fish were deep. Got one that went about 7 lbs. Beautiful lake

It is also a very tricky lake to stay on the structure when it is very windy.

Seems like every time we go there it is windy, but we still find a few fish.

nice norts out there...got one one year getting blown off of my spot went from 10 to 50 feet and never let line out and it bit. 12 or 13 lbs. fun fight. lots of structure takes a while to find everything look for points and start there. There is a sunken island that is fun...black jig head...orange Twister...Minnow (sucker small) and you'll have 4lb norts most of the day.

I see on the map its a deep clear lake,a guy told me that the lake shuts down on the eyes around mid Jun, is this true, Ive been wanting to get over there and fish this lake for a couple of years but just has never worked out, Has anybody fished them suspended in that deep water?

That is the thing about that lake -- one second you are on fish in 18 feet, then you are blown off so far it is 50 feet of water.

It is a challenge.

Ok now has anybody noticed baitfish flipping out of the deep water in the evenings,I ask all this because there is a lake up here that we troll 50-105 feet of water at night fishing down anywere between 8-24ft and do well on the eyes one night I was bs'ing with some divers over a cool one at the landing and they told me about Rose and what they see in it when they dive, and it is a very similar lake and I HAVE to try it, the short of it is there are some (alot) of HUGE eyes in there guys. I think what we do up here will work there.

YES!! They are out there. On another lake i watched a guy release a walleye that would have went over 11 lbs doing this trolling over deep water, he showed me how and thats how i learned. Im not great at it, but getting better.

THose fish are chasing tulibees in the summer over deep water. If you pass over the deep water you will see tons of arcs. I will one day get set up to troll open, deep water and get on those eyes in Rose. I may even get a downrigger for it.

Are those arcs, say at about 24 feet early ie before sundown then start coming up shallower until they disappear off the locator. The lake up here you get eyes off the typical walleye structure early untill about the 3rd week in June then it gets real slow on structure then I pull out deep. How the landing there are there lights to get back to it at night, Ive been on unfamiliar water at night and spend a long time looking for the landing.

I don't think there is really a lot of equipment that you need fisherdog. You must have a couple of trolling rods, a nice selection of cranks and a dive chart...that should do it. When the water temps are at a certain level most of the action is in the top 20 feet of the water column. I'm on vacation for four out of the next five weeks and plan on getting on this pattern at a different lake. I'll let you know how I do if you're interested.

Ya get some trolling rods with some diawa accudepth 27 rods and put a mono filler on the first couple hunderd yards then end with 125 years of fireline. In most trolling situations you will use a max of 200 Feet of Line. the trollers bible is a great tool. YOu look up your lure, compare it to line type and bingo if you want your #7 sahrap to run at 18 feet it will tell you how much line ot run out. However, make sure you reel is full to the top and if you have 2 have identical amounts of line otherwise the line counter will not be accurate. Since we are only allowed one line per angler in MN you probably won't need planer boards uless you have more than 2 people in the boat. IN ND you can use 2 lines per person, put 3 people in the boat and watch out for the confusion of 2 lines in the back and 2 lines on each side of the boat with 2 boards on each side. it takes lots of Practice to keep from getting massive tangles.

I say "a couple of trolling rods" only because it always seems that if someone jumps in with you they don't have one. And yes...those Daiwa reels are sweet aren't they?? My uncle just had to get one last year after he seen mine. smile.gif

Would the other lake be in Hubbard County by chance? Equipment I mostly use bait casts anyway and trolling all I do is count the times the level wind crosses at night I hold my finger there and count the times it touches it. and of course we want to know, I should hookup with someone here to ge experiment on Rose with.

I am interested in trying this as well and looking for some area lakes that allow for some "deep basin" trolling.

Do these fish hang out during the middle of the day or is it more towards evening? I have found it tough to find fish during the day trolling.

Hawghunter, if you are in the area I would be willing to try this with ya! grin.gif

The when they hit question depends a lot on the lake, Ive been on some that during the day you see them on the locator but its like they have lockjaw then evening comes and you see them starting to move up shallower, but still in the deep water, and start hitting, daytime is tough. I prefer night and the light of the moon, during the days I use downriggers but not at night. Id begame to hook up with you when I go try Rose that lake just intrigues me I just think that it could be one of those deep water sleepers there are a lot of lakes out there that really hasnt been tried in the deep yet,more and more people are begining to tho and Id rather find the lake than here about it. Its just like the bite by time you here about it its over YOU have to make the bite everyone heres about.

There are a few lakes in the area where the trolling bite can be awesome. Rose, Long, Pelican, Otter Tail(So I've heard) and Big Sand (Hubbard Co.) I prefer silver shad raps and also the largest cisco colored stick baits. Boards are nice and multiple anglers in the boat is the ticket. My old land lord's kid landed a 13.2 walleye open watering on a DL area lake that will remain annonymous. However I've named the lakes that I usually fished.

Timing is key. Full moon periods are best, as well as water temps that focus tullibee near the surface, in otherwords the water temps need to be relatively cool, but not cold. Otherwise you will have to go deeper, which can be achieved with inline weights.

      Any new ice reports?  Looking For s something about Nicholas or strand
    • rundrave
      what if you pull a wheel house to Mn from out of state or are a non resident?
    • Hoey
      I am noodling this same concept over.  I am thinking either a dedicated (portable) battery, since I may be pulling on shore to the ice with the 4-wheeler or a hand, boat-type winch, not always hooked up to the truck.  
    • Hoey
      Copy that!
    • Hoey
      Wow that is great to know.  Thanks for sharing.  Nothing like learning the laws from a CO on the lake.
    • birdguy
      Per the DNR news release dated November 20th:  “Wheeled fish houses, which formerly were considered portable – and thus excluded from licensing requirements for shelters – will now need to be licensed,” said Al Stevens, fisheries survey and systems consultant with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “In the past, anglers using wheelhouses could use them without shelter licenses as long as they were occupied, including overnight.” The change pursued by the DNR and enabled by 2017 legislation accompanied hunting and angling fee increases. An annual resident shelter license is $16. A three-year license is $43. Owners of houses to be rented pay $31 annually or $88 for a three-year license. A valid license tag must be attached to the outside of the fish house in a readily visible location. ~~~~~ Any ideas on how to go about attaching them since they're no longer stickers like they used to be? Apparently you can't put them inside in a window facing out per the 'outside' requirement of the law.

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.
    • OhioVike
      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!
    • workin4bait
      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.
    • KidMoe
      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it.
