      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 .

I caught 3 in less the 20 minutes with one being a keeper. Saturday I spent a little time on the lake as it was about a nice as day as a guy could ask for. Landed one just over 15" and saw alot of smaller fish caught, I saw one crappie caught and greg said he got 3 crappie saturday eve.All males, The sheephead were on the terror and saturday eve you could here them croaking under the water next to the pontoon.

My son (age 9) and I fished Red for the second time Saturday. On the water for 8 hours. We did a creel survey for the DNR, so we kept track of all our fish. 34 walleyes, with 3 keepers. Another 1/2 dozen between 17 & 18" and the biggest about 22". Plenty of little ones, too. No crappies.

I don't know how many thousands of acres we can fish, but we had 3 different boats troll past us while we were anchored that were close enough I could have spit in their boats. These must be the (insert comment here that will get deleted) guys that set up 5 feet from your ice house door in the winter. This is in open water, too, not on the river. I'm continually amazed at some people. They would have gone over our slip bobbers had we not reeled in.

Otherwise, a great trip.

Thinking about bring my brother-in-law & the two 9 year-olds up to fish Red the end of next week. If we stayed at Big Bog what would be a good plan of attack to get our walleyes & maybe a few crappies at this point in the season. We've only got a 50hp on a 16', so probably don't want to run all over the lake.

Is trolling plugs likely to be working then & if so about how deep?

Yeah I'm in the same boat as you too,excuse the pun,I think I'll brave it though. I got a 16 footer with a 35 hp. Man I can't wait to make it up there. How far do you have to venture off shore to get at 'em?

Look for them, they are not always where they are suppose to be.I have caught them in 2 feet of water, yes 2 feet... on the north shore in the middle of summer on a hot sunny day. They are sometimes tough to find but grat when you get in to them...I'd try 4' out to 9' work the ridges or drops and dont be afraid to buzz in to the shallows, ya never know with the pesky Red lake wallys...

How's the fishing been on Red? I was thinking of heading to Lake of the Woods for walleye next weekend, but was thinking of stopping at Red instead. Haven't fished it in years.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
