      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 .

We just finished a week on Rush Lake. Windy and rainy, but we caught lots of fish. Here's what I know - I'm no expert, but I can pretend. LOL.

1) Sunfish - in the reeds - 4-6 feet. TIGHT against the reed beds - flip plain hooks with waxies. We did real well east of the 2 towers in the reeds - lots of really nice sunfish. There were lots of bass in the same areas as well - 1 to 2 pounds. All Nice fish.

2) Walleyes are going in that 20-25 foot range on spinners with crawlers. Lots of people are fishing the south east breaks - looking for fish and fishing the individual pods. They do have a great lakemaster map out - bring your GPS - or you will go crazy out there. (well, at least I did). I know the guides were using 3 oz bottom bouncers as well, but he was really hunting fish. BTW - whoever that regular guide is out there is a real pro with a sweet Lund 2010. I know his rates are real reasonable and he puts you on fish - so you might want to call him and see if he has an opening. His name is "Josh Haggemeister. Here is a link

Josh

3) The rock bass are EVERYWHERE.

4) I never checked for walleyes shallow, pulling cranks, but you gotta know they are there.

Hope this helps. Have fun. I love that lake.

Just got back from Rush. Stayed at Shady Grove. Got there Monday 6/11, left on Friday 6/15. Caught every type of fish the lake has to offer including Dogfish. Hammered the Walleyes on the North end of the lake in shallow water, 4-8 feet trolling Lindy rigs with crawler harness and leeches. Many fish in the 17 to 20" range. Lots of fun. Strong South wind blew for 2 days. Must have blown bait to North End. Did well in this shallow water no matter what time of day it was. Trolling very slow with just a split shot for weight, just enough to drag across the tops of the weeds. Good luck and have fun! wink.gif

      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

      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.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.
