      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.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
