      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 .

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.

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.

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.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!  
    • Wanderer
      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!
