      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 .

Rush Lake Metro LETS - Directions and Info.

Recommended Posts

Those planning on camping, I'll see you guys Saturday either on the lake or at Cory's. If your not planning to camp, check-in is at 6:45 a.m. Sunday morning on the lake at Cory's. Launch at the either access and boat around to Cory's on the lake (more detailed directions coming via email).

I've never fished this lake, but here are directions that I have. Tournament headquarters may be slightly off, this is my best guess based on directions I have. It should be pretty obvious on Sunday morning - an FM banner will be up lakeside and there will be a bunch of boats on shore.

Note -
route marked on map in yellow is not correct. I didn't realize HWY 7 doesn't have access from 35W. Try...

35W North to 1 West/North to 2 West to 4 South. This may not be the best way around to the west side of the lake, but will get you there. HWY 7 doesn't have access from 35. This is to the West Rush landing and closest to Tournament Headquarters.

from Cory below - his house is North of where it is marked on this map. Just around the point south of the landing on West Rush.

Hey guys!

Its not quite as far down as the arrow is. It is about halfway between the arrow and the circle, by lake look for a green house with a stone front and a willow bush out front we like to call our chia pet!

Anyone gonna come up and prefish this weekend??

We went to check out Rush Lake last night for the Metro LETS on Sunday. Just scouted the lake for the most part but wet a few lines.
WATER IS WAY UP (or so it seems as I had never been there) but every 1 out of 5 docks are under water.

High water caused lots of rip rap in the water. Trees, brush, grass clippings...

We drifted with crawler & leech harness. Couple nibbles but not much.

Tossed Senko worms by docks spotted a few but were not willing to hit, only "sniff".

Had a few follows on some spinner baits, one hit but not much.

Few more hits on weed line with bobber & leech, but could not tell what it was. Took bobber down but then would come back up.

Overall we got a good view of the lake and have scouted a few spots that we will be hitting up on Sunday early, then go back and hit the points that I outlined.

We fished for about close to 2 hours so we did not put that much time in.

Good Luck & Good Fishing on Sunday!

As for bait shops in the area...

Go to Fish Lake bait in Harris, thats a good one, or Gander Mountain in Forest Lake, the freshest bait is at either Bakkens Bait which is just off of 65 or Deidrichs Bait which is on the North side of the lake, they have a sign saying livebait with an arrow! Doesnt look like much of a place but they are the major wholesaler in the area!

See ya this weekend!!

We parked on the East Rush landing and boated over. What road do take as a short cut back to 7 from 1? It seemed like all the roads going west out of town were driveways.

    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
    • Coulda stopped the story there. Already too much work!
