      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 .

Lake Nipigon Brookies and Lake Trout

Recommended Posts

Sniper1

Guy's I need some help/suggestions. My wife and I are heading to Pasha lake on the 15th. I have fished the area during the winter but never the summer. We would like to fish some splake, brookies and lakers, the lakers and brookies would be on Nipigon. I know you have to use barbless hook on Nipigon.

I was wandering if some one could suggest what type of baits to use, we will be running down riggers. So any help you guys could give me would greatly be appreciated.

Take care,

Sniper1

Sniper,

I've stayed at Pasha and spent time on big Nip. Depends when your going up. Early season the brookies can be found shallow around the rocks and you can cast to them and during the summer out deep suspended near the top over deep water or on the lakes humps. Try jointed raps, stick baits, etc for the brookies and for the lakers which can be found just about anywhere troll HUGE spoons. Try canoes, williams, and wobblers. I'm sure you've been to the splake lake already cool.gif. Good luck and let me know if theres anything I can help you with.

Outdoor ran:

I was planning on running cowbells and crawlers for the splake. We have never fished trout when we have been up there. The splake lake is thru Geraldton, we went into a fly in lake in March on sleds. Did you ever fish Neeza, just up the road from the 801 for blue walleyes??. We did in march wow are they nice fish.

Our plan is to fish Northwinds, Neeza, the splake lake, maybe run up to Katchican for a day and maybe run to the jackfish river on Nipigon.

Any suggestions you can give us as far as what to use and where to go would greatly be appreciated. This is my wife's first trip into Canada.

Thanks again for the help.

Doug

Havn't tried Neeza, Have fish NW a few times. Last year it went bad at the landing. Some Mich boys thought they owed the lake and launch. We just run stick baits on the DR for the splake. We talk about making the 20 mile run to the Jackfish every year but just havn't done it yet. If you get blown off the big lake you can go to the royal windsor and fish Oriant bay. Some nice brookies in there too.

Tom, what map? I no nothing about a map wink.gifgrin.gif

I was wondering where that map came from smirk.gif. I'm not going up there this year frown.gif My fishing buddies talked me into going antelope hunting in the fall instead. Hopefully next year we can get back up to the big Nip.

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.

      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.

      Most coho being on Minnesota side are 12" - 17".   Occasional bigger fish.  Very few 3# pound fish.

      SM, Nice meeting you today! I am sure we will see each other again! We ended up catching 6 walleyes and 6 tulibees. Kept 3 walleyes from 14" to 19-3/4". We quit at 1:00pm also.

      drove around the lake last night, the open spot has moved east back to halvorson pt. and extends west/ northwest and has gotten much bigger.  numerous small spots opened up west of peters resort to baycrest. I would say from the beach to a little before halvorson pt. over to the dnr landing and west to bottle bay should be good to go, that's where the majority of houses are out.
