      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 dropped a pontoon in there last week. It is still pretty low, but you can get in. You just need to keep it trimmed up while going out. Gull and Round are the only lakes that are at normal levels, the rest are just a little better than last fall. Hopefully we get a little rain this summer. Its tough to start the year at low levels.

I live on the lake and cant get my boat out there. they dredged the landing but still not deep enough for my 19' runabout. the motor hole wasnt even deep enough to get the rollers wet on the trailer. luckily was able to get out in front of my house-dont know about getting it out though!

Does any of the resorts have a deep enough access that we could use? I'm thinking the resort on the SW bay might work if the landing is too shallow? I guess it could be worse - I could have a cabin on Sandbar Lake instead.

Has anyone fished this lake so far this year for crappies or walters?

Well, I hit the lake tonight. The access is VERY shallow, as there is about a foot of water at the shallowest point. Good thing the water is warming up so you can get out of the boat and not freeze your butt off.

Got two walleyes on the south end, using leeches.

I did see a Fishing Minnesota sticker on a Ford pickup at the access. Meat-Run, was that you?

Is anyone else fishing this lake?

yeah, picking up 2 is not bad for this lake. was out till 10:00 and caught 2 but the lightning scared us off. I got my big boat in at cozy bay but is still shallow. probally end up leaving it out there as too much work going in and out. If you see me I'm in the maroon/white 19' four winns cruiser. otherwise it will be on the lift near cozy bay. maybe i'll see you out there as I am out there 2-5 nights a week

Icicle,

No sorry it wasn't me. I was thinking about getting a FM sticker though. I'm more curious about the water levels for a particular reason, BASS opener. Guys thanks for all the help and posting your findings on water levels. I have heard that Edward can be a good lake but because of low water levels I'm going to pick another lake. The access really isn't my concern more than the structure I want to fish.

Later,

I shouldn't have an issue launching a 16 footer, should I? I fear that when I get up there later in June that the water level will be around the same...since rain fall seems to be in short supply lately.

Also, got a map and GPS of the lake...I can kind of figure out where you guys are fishing (or at least get close)...but any suggestions as far as bait/speed/etc.? I'm going to attempt to target walleye. Thanks all in adavance, it is greatly appreciated.

You can put in at Cozy Bay...I helped put in the docks there this year, and we anticipated low water. The owner is a good guy, so ask about where to go. He is always happy to give alittle. Water depth should be good unless the lake completely dries up. Water was low when the docks went in, so the docks went out further. Should be good for the season, if not, we will be back to adjust.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      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.

      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.
