      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 .

Eyehunter Minnewaska has some very nice fish in the lake, lots of nice fish last Fall same size range Corey is talking about. It sounds like you need to learn how to locate those fish. Sounds like you had a great day Corey, a few lakes around Morris have been giving up some nice fish in between the constant weather changes.

Cory,

Your posts on Minnewaska have been very informative for the people who really read into them.

BTW, I met you at the ramp the other morning and we were talking about exactly what you posted above regarding the change of location of walleyes in the lake. The bass guys throwing hard baits know exactly what you are talking about.

Bassman,

You need to get down to Waska. It can take a little while to figure out, but it is loaded with 3-4lb. largemouth and smallmouth.

It is not hard to catch bass on waska right now. Anything will work. I was out on Friday for the first time in the morning on the Starbuck end. Went to Priest Point and caught a few small eyes on fatheads then went to the south shoreline and worked a jig off the bottom in about 14' of water and nailed a 19 1/2". Had to leave and did not make it out the rest of the weekend. I think I caught 50 bass in the 4 hours I was out and I was fishing for eyes.

Corey

Where did you catch all the nice eyes? If you want to share but not post it here you can email me at pjcodner@yahoo.com . Always looking for good spots to fish and to take my two young boys out fishing.

Only fished minnewaska twice. Once just kind of screwing around and then last sunday spent about 3 hours chasing smallies. Only caught 8 but 3 were between 18 and 19 inches. Fish were really scattered where i was fishing just catching one here and one there, not really that grouped up. Just wondering how the smallie bite is typically, more numbers or size or both. Also, generally, what is the preferred approach for largemouth, deep, shallow, or in between; weedlines, pencil reeds, docks, rocks, flats, etc. Not looking for specific spots, just a general idea to help get me started.

Are most of the bigger bass deeper? I was out there memorial weekend in the tsunami waves and only caught little ones. What lures? And where, the points and boulders?

eye10,

I WAS feeling you're frustration, but then you go and say the lake's full of 3-5# bass and inviting everyone to come up and EAT them and that there taking over the lake. Good thing waska isn't gonna be your "home" lake any more. BTW, 1-2# LM, yes, but 3-5#??? At least Corey's info is accurate, although I do admit I wish everyone didn't have to know about it. Still gotta be able to catch em, just don't enjoy it as much with the added # of boats. Yes, Selfishness is my middle name. lol. I'm workin on it!

      Can't make this one but looking forward to meeting up on the next. I may even try moving around to catch some like eyeguy, instead of enjoying a nice relaxing sit in my chair and talking!! I think I still have 17 cans of beer in my basement of the 18 can case I brought last year no one drank, I can bring again!!

      Anyone been around the western edge or north side of Pine with sled or atv?

      My dad fell thru Camp Lake just north of Shakopee last weekend.  Went from 6" to less then 1.5" in an area that typically never has issues.  Lots of abnormal freezing this year, there were still open pockets Sunday afternoon.   Haven't seen it freeze like this in years (at least on our lake.)  Don't go alone on lakes you're not familiar with.  Bring a spud.

      Any info on Mayhew Lake just NE of St. Cloud? Just moved to the area and was looking to get out a small lake.

      Now is the time to talk to kids about the dangers of thin ice. As temperatures continue to dip below freezing, ice is forming on many lakes, ponds and rivers. But conditions vary across the state.  Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Hannah Mishler has already responded to multiple ice rescue calls. “Ice, especially snow covered ice, is extremely deceptive. You can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” Mishler said. With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward the newly formed ice for entertainment. “Teach your children that ice is never 100 percent safe,” cautions Mishler. “If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” While adults and children are recreating outdoors, they should always take precautions around any body of water during the cold water season. Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator, advises in addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). When a child is near the ice, an adult should be near the child. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
