      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 .

Hoping to find out how the fishing for eyes and perch has been on Cass. Headed up there June 24-30. Staying at Wishbone resort. Also bringing my young girls and was hoping to get them on some panfish. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey there Fireman,

Our family has been going up to Wishbone for 20 years. This is our 20th anniversary at Cass. Bill and Lois will take great care of you as will their son Ron and his wife Linda. If this is your first time up at Cass I would strongly recommend you getting in touch with Brian Jones who is on this site and book him for a half day or full day on your first day up there. We have been using Brian since he started his business 5 or 6 years ago and he and his father fish Cass non stop. They are on the lake almost every day and he will show you how to fish Cass, where to fish and what depths to fish. He is a wealth of knowledge as well as a polite and friendly young family man. Give him a call or just post on this thread, he is always talking to people on here. He will hook you up, no pun intended!

Gene,

What size boat do you have? Will be up in a few weeks and not sure if I can make it under. How is the water level going through? I have a deep V with full windshields.

My buddy and a guide both have pretty decent size boats and they make it under so I think you'll be ok.

Jperch,

What do you want to get under there for anyway. Pike has not done much, as far as I can see, for the past 5 years. Maybe Geno can shed some light on this matter. What's the dillio Geno? LOL

Can't speak for your time of yr (July/Aug), but in June all the seasonal guests at our resort (many oldtimers) spend lots of time in PikeBay. We never have done any walleye fishing in there in many years, but I also know one guide who really loves to hit Pike so I think it has lots of potential.

So much water...so little time!

Wow,

I did not realize that so many guides pound Pike. I havent found an eye there for years. What are they looking for? Perch or toothy critters?

I see more big 'eyes than toothy critters come out of Pike.

We go in for Perch and Rockies. Only went once this yr for a half-day. Got some of each but not enought to make it worth another trip. Our other boat found big gills in Allen's so we joined them instead of trying Pike again.

Another of the chat-guys hit Pike pretty hard for 'eyes and like it alot. Maybe I'll have to follow them in one day.

We ran into 'em all over the lake. They were on the feed during our trip. Good luck on yours.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.

            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Headed up for one last weekend of open water fishing.  Anyone been out this week, how’s the bite?

      Marcum keeps designing great new products...this is almost a must have for anyone with any Marcum unit. I ordered one for my LX-7, all the features plus a smaller/lighter battery that gives more hours in between charges.....swweeeet!
