      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 .

Hey Mr. Jones,

We'll be up the week of August 5th. The family, Brad and Monica, and Mike Marra..........I think little Jimmy is ready for a half day trip. Can we book you for a half day for walleye or panfish?

Let me know what's available. Also....I want to rent a pontoon (nice one) for a few days. Any suggestions?

Commanche,

Talk to Bill and Lois or Ron their son at Wishbone Resort. They have two pontoon boats that they rent. Tell them I sent you. Not sure if they rent to non Wishbone people but I can't see why not. I will be up there from July 21st thru Aug 5th. Let me know if you want to do a half day with Brian and we can split it. Muskie, walleye, northern whatever is ok by me. I think it would be fun to get the three of us in Brians boat. We could overload him with White Sox banter, though this year is not much to speak of. We can relive 05 for about 5 hours with him, that would drive him nuts. I shot you an email at the restaurant so give me a shout if you are interested.

Windy,

We already rented one from Stony Point.....I called Wishbone to ask if we could rent one and they said a firm "No, we don't do that!" I reminded him that we rented one from him last year for a full week......but he didn't want to hear it. To be honest, I wouldn't ever stop in there again after the way they talked to me. It wasn't Ron, but whoever answered the phone wouldn't budge.

Anyhow, are you leaving on the 5th? We won't be arriving until the 5th, probably later in the afternoon.

Shoot me an email if you want.

CJ,

I'm almost positive Steve at Break on the Lake will rent one to you... even if you don't have a cabin from them. They have 3 for rent in varying degrees of nice, from really nice to O.K.... I don't know how their rates vary with each craft. Give him a call. Also he is renting 2 houseboats this year... water slide, grill, kitchen and biffy... may be a good way to burn a day with a large group. I'm thinking a big group parked over some shallow structure slip bobber fishing through the night while grilling chow and having fun... kinda like a private launch...

Good Luck!

Ken

Thanks LABS4ME.....

We're actually staying on Break on the Lake. I thought they only had 1 pontoon, but was kind of small. I'll have to call Steve and inquire. What are the houseboats like?

Thanks!!!!!!

Well Jim, look me up! My cabin is right behind B.O.T.L.'s #10 and #11! We'll have a cold one together.

Steve has an agreement with 2 of the seasonal owners to use their pontoon boats... both are pretty darn nice!

The house boats are newer... they are nice! 90 hp Mercs, Small kitchen, bunks table/booth, AC, water slide and a huge sundeck on top, I think it'd be a hoot to rent for a day and night and to be able to fish all night while "camping"! Of course it'd have to be somewhat calm so you'd be able to anchor, but they are available most days as they are new for him to rent out.

Good Luck!

Ken

Hey Ken,

We'll have some cocktails when we come up. I called BOTL and I'm waiting to hear back on the availability of the pontoons and houseboats. What would you think about getting a few guys together (including Mr. Jones, and 2 of the guys I'm coming up with) and use the houseboat overnight, mix some cocktails, and try to catch some fish.

My wife is very interested in using it during the day with the kids.........then we could try it out at night?

I've had some decent luck at night, right Brian??????

I could be up for that... we talked about that very subject last weekend. Anchor on a spot like Deadman's and lighted bobber fish, a couple cocktails and some smart talking... Could be fun!!! Let me know as you dial it in...

Good Luck!

Ken

I didn't stick around for the night bite but found lots of willng eyes during the day.

Ken feel free to give me a call and I could point you towards a few spots. It might be different but I'm guessing these spots could still be good.

      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

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      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.

      get a guide for a day
