      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 .

Waukon Bay (Need help!)

Recommended Posts

The company I work for is holding a fishing trip in two weeks and we are staying at Walleye Dundee's. I have never fished the south end of the lake and I was wondering what kind of structure I should be targeting. Any info is appreciated. We have alot of 1st timers going along and I would love to show them what it feels like to hook into some Walleyes.

Just look at the past posts, they list tons of locations / presentations on the south End. You will have a blast.

Don't forget about the mud either grin.gif

South end of the lake is mainly gravel beads and rock, the northern half of the lake is all mud flats with a few small gravel beds.

I can offer some help, try the reefs around spider island, basically look for the rock reef bouys and be there a couple hours before sundown. We have also done well dragging a crawler in the trench where Wahkon bay begins when it is hot out. Also try trolling for northerns along the weed edges in Wahkon Bay.

On a side note, are you from Iowa by chance? My hometown is Waukon Ia, and your post grabbed my attention.....

Good luck

Picks,

Funny you should ask about Waukon,IA...

I am not from there but I was just there today. The company I work for is contracted to install the sprinkler system in the addition being built on the high school. I didn't even realize I spelled Wahkon like Waukon,IA.

Thanks for the tips for spider island. I am really looking forward to getting up there and trying out my lakemaster chip. Catching some eyes would be nice too!

Hey Wallyeye,

What Sprinkler company do you work for? My Uncle owns one in Owatonna and they do some work in IA.

Later.

If you have a chip, you should do fine, just hit those rock reefs, there will be fish there at some point during the day, hopefully the wind will help out.

How do you like that stretch of concrete from the MN to Decorah? the worst section of road I have ever been on, and they fixed it 4 years ago.

That road is terrible. I actually stopped on the way down just to make sure it was the road and not a tire going down on me.

Wallyeye, the point that the resort is on holds some nice fish. Try 8-10 feet right around the corner towards the big lake. Otherwise, read some reports and you will find fish.

      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.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
