      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 .

Grand Rapids Winnie fishing report

Another week of hot weather and hot fishing. Winnie has been a good bite, with the fish being deep on the calmer days and fish in the shallows on the days with more wind. I have been on the humps in 21-25 ft of water with a 3/8-1/2 oz jig and a shiner. It seems like every hump on the north end had some fish. The south end bars also had fish on them as well as the first drop around moxes hole. The shiners are getting at the end of their run and getting hard to find, so I see us changing to leeches and crawlers soon. Bowstring, Sand and Jessie have been producing some good fishing with both minnows and leeches being the ticket there. The panfish action has been scattered but I have heard the bluegills are biting on cutfoot and area lakes in the new weeds.

Good luck fishing

I was up Thursday through Sunday...

North end rocks were very good to me... We boated 9...

50/50 mix shiners to leeches... 1 was caught trolling a perch rap on a 3 way rig.

I also hooked into a Musky while trolling my Walleye Gear on the North end of Zumers, but lost it near the boat.

I've had some tough luck the previous two years weather wise on Winnie... Big winds always made it tough to fish the big lake for long stretches, so this year with the kind weather I took the chance to move around, and sort of take the whole tour...

There are a lot of guys anchoring up in the calm weather on Gravel bars both in Cut Foot Sioux and out on the lake, and then talking to them they weren't catching much...

Talking to the guys who at prime time were trolling shallow structures near weed edges, and either the bulk of them were lieing or that's where the hot prime time bite was.

****

All told I had a great time up there... Folks at the National campgrounds were really nice... Got checked by a sheriff, when I was clearly the only sobre guy in the boat... And the Sheriff was incredibly respectful to me despite my friend's state...

Many boats have been out on the lake and fishing in deeper waters, the shoreline bite is tapering. A popular spot to hit which is producing nice walleyes is "The Fence" using crawlers. Lake level is good, with the rainfall that we have been receiving. No problem to launch in the area.

How is the water clarity up there? I noticed last year in places that you couldnt see bottom in 2-3' of water.

While I didn't really think of it in terms of Feet... I can tell that it was better than it was the last two years I went up there.

The Fence is located on the north side of Bena Bar. Which is located to the southwest of us about 3 1/2 miles.

      Is the Frabill a thermal flip over? It sounds like a steal to me. I would go for it if you’re looking for a house that has more room. I have a Frabill 2 man thermal flip over and I really like it.

      Steve, Thanks for helping me get a deal on my Otter. I was able to pick it up at Marine General on Monday. Can't believe all of the ice stakes that came with it. Bought one of the Eskimo drill adapters to install them.

      Just out on 1st Lake after work 5” solid clear ice out to 17’ of water

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.

      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update

      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T
