      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 .

Trade Lake Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

Anybody know where I can get a depth map of Trade Lake in burnett county? Or any lake information and fishing reports would be very helpful. I will be fishing it on WI opener and would like to know what to expect.

No problem. I hope to be not far north of there on Yellow Lake for the opener.

A friend used to have a campsite there and said the bass and pike fishing was pretty good. I know there's some excellent panfishing there.

Good luck.

I was going to go there as well Don but after the indians lowered the limit to 1 cuz their too greedy i have changed my mind.. BTW How do they know if your fish came from little yellow big yellow or the river? In that case you could keep 3 and say 2 are from lil yellow and 1 is from big...

WIFisher I think you have the indian part wrong.

Aren't all regulations set per treaty with the LDF Indians based on the safe harvest and how much they spear?

If you want i will post everything Larry Damman emailed to me. The indians set the limits based on what they think is right so that they can spear how many they would like to. There was an indian guy the other night in the pour house in Siren bragging it up about how he speared 68 walleyes all by himself on Big Mckenzie.. Its absolutely ridiculous..

This is for WIFisher regarding limits on Yellow.

my understanding is if you fish Little Yellow and catch your two fish and then stop and fish Big Yellow, you could be ticketed for being over your limit. If you start in Yellow and catch one then head into little yellow you can only catch one more for a total of two.

It doesn't matter where you caught them but where you possess them.

Well I'm pretty sure you can take the alotted limit from each lake until you get the WI limit of 5. So I could go tio Big Yellow take 1. Lil Yellow take 2 and Big Mckenzie to take 2 more but i cant go over 5. This is just the understanding I have..'

Here is what it says on the 2009 Ceded Territories Bag Limit Page:

"The total daily bag limit for walleyes is five. If the lake you are fishing has a bag limit less than five, you can fish other lakes to fill your

daily bag limit. While fishing, you cannot possess fish in excess of that lake's daily bag limit."

I think WIF is right. The only issue would be getting your two fish from Little Yellow to your vehicle. Since there are no ramps on Little Yellow, you would need to take your boat to Yellow to load onto trailer. As soon as you enter Yellow with two fish in the boat you're over the limit.

You would need to park your boat on the Little Yellow side, carry your fish to your vehicle, then drive to Yellow and catch one more. Then you would be perfectly legal...I think. smile

Sounds like a plan huh Ryan?

Sounds about right, you'd need to use the ramp between lakes I guess. Not a problem for me though, our boat can't clear the bridge.

Speaking of the bridge between the lakes ---

My Brother-in-law was telling me there is talk about replacing the bridge with a taller one next year. Has anyone else heard this or have information on it?

    •  Indeed I am pretty confident I will get one this weekend I am able to hunt fri to monday morning  
    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
