      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 .

Fishing Lately?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone gone out lately -- during the rain period? I am going to go out tonight if it does not storm. Any thoughts on where we will find fish tonight -- as far as depth.

Thanks

Nope not been out since just before the tornado. I am saving myself for the walleye slaugter that is going on on Mille Lacs. My Brother, Father and myself are going to Mille Lacs next weekend for 3 days. That should be a good time. The gal at the resort told us that she could not remeber when the walleyes were biting as hot and heavy as they are now. I cant wait.

Well I went out to Pelican and it was one of the few times I was shut out. Nothing was biting. I tried deep and I tried shallow -- no luck.

Not a rockbass, perch or northern -- much less an Eye. I thought the weather might mess us up and it did.

We got off the lake at 9 p.m. due to the weather looking really nasty.

Yeah, Mille Lacs is definitely tempting right now... We found a bonanza out there for the opener as well this year! We had 40 fish in two days that averaged 23 inches... No kidding. That lake will be my favorite lake to fish very soon I have a feeling... smile.gif

I have been out everyweekend since opener and it was great up until the last two weekends (talk about the dead sea). Just like you said... it got to be where I was marking BITES on the ol gps. I tried everything and nothing seemed to work, so I tried fishing areas I have NEVER fished before and managed to catch a decent number of walleyes (outside of the slot) but they were definitely not where they usually are (I found them along the weedlines in "non-structured" areas? Then, I was out all day and caught three (questionable) keepers last weekend only to come in at dark to watch a group of guys landing endless 16'' walleyes off the dock IN 3 FOW! I have all but gave up on the ol' walleye holes. Man it was fun the first couple of weekends though!

Well it sounds like the fishing is a little difficult right now. We are heading to Lida next week for our annual family vacation and it sounds like the usual spots aren't producing right now. We will just need to work a little harder I guess. I will share our results with you. Thanks for your posts guys it makes me think about fishinbg Lida even when I can't get there to fish it myself.

I fished Lida 2 weeks ago. From the Public Landing head out and turn left around the corner. 15-40 fow trolling deep raps wokred for me. If you go a little further there is a little bar there were it comes from 30 fow to 15 fow. I saw some people hanging jigs off the bar and the seemed to be having luck. Be careful of the slot limit though. A lot of nice fish being caught in the protected slot. 17-26" think.

Thanks Paul. That spot usually produces well for us this time of year, we will definately give it a try. I can't wait, we have a lot of fond memories at that lake. I will let you know how we did next week. Thanks again.

I have fished Lida every weekend and last night for that matter. Clay point (where you are talking about) has officially died. I will keep you posted if it picks back up. I did catch one walleye there last night that was about 10 inches, but that was the only bite I got. I didn't try pulling deep runners? But, jigging, spinners, lindy rigs...etc. don't work as well as they did a few weeks ago. The fish did seem to move a little deeper?

Was out on Pelican tonight. Tried several spots. varied depth between 23 and 14 feet. Caught several Rockbass, a couple of snakes and 1 nice 17" Walleye.

Caught on a yellow/green lindy rig with a leech at about 1 MPH in 19 FOW.

Beautiful night on the water.

I think bobber fishing may be successful as areas up to 17 FOW have weeds to the surface.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.
    • eyeguy 54
      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
