      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 .

Well got back from Mille lacs lake a hour or so ago. We fished Sunday mornign from 12am to 5:30 am and have over 65 fish caught with only 2 keepers and rest were in the slot of no fish 20-28. Sunday night8-12 35+ fish same spot. Monday mornign 8-1pm 4 people in launch 7 fish 1 keeper. They were weird today, water was 25 feet deep and we had bobbers set to 10 feet and killed the hawgs. Almost everyone was 25 or bigger. Here is some of ours.

I was at Mille Lacs last weekend and caught 3 slots in a row on Sunday morning - two 16s and a 19. Overall, in a day and a half, I caught 20 walleyes and only 5 were slots, but I wasn't complaining about having to release those 24-26 inchers.

I have been going to mille lacs every weekend for the past 2 months. The DNR has done a GREAT job with the slot limit there. If your going for slot fish your wasting your gas money by traveling to mille lacs. Mille lacs fishery is going to be prime for monster walleye for many more years because of the slot limit. I just got back from fishing all night Saturday and we caught 15 walleye, our smallest was 23" to 27" I have had an awesome time fishing down there and plan on making a few more trips this year yet.

I agree... We didn't even keep our slot fish. You don't go to mille lacs to catch keepers. You go there to catch "releasers."

Good Point, without that slot, where would that lake be. But I see your point on wanting to take a few eaters. I wish they would implement more slot limits around here. Especially on northerns.

I don't want people to think I was complaing, I wasn't (ok Maybe a little bit) I was more amazed at the fact that we couldn't catch a keeper for the life of me. We got 2 in 3 days. I heard a horrible story while we were down there from our launch captain (that I have not been able to find verication of story) about how the DNR and the BIA and Fed's discovered an excess of 100,000 lbs of walleyes toss in a garbage pile after gill netting. IF that is true it is disgusting if not well I guess Our captain had a grudge.

He did not say, he just said it was more than 100,000 lbs of prime eaters. I dont remeber the exact number but is was astronomically more than 100k

Those kind of stories will never end. Rumors are rumors and if it was that big of a find (as you stated) it would have been on the news or in papers especially in the outdoor news. I think that captain just had a grudge.

I thought someone might get upset over my post so I figured I better show some proof. If you do a search for mille lacs messenger and then on that site you search the arcives for "dumped fish" you will see one such article. Not the one I was looking for but whats the difference wasted fish is wasted fish.

Mille lacs is famous for finger pointing, and that article you pointed out clearly states that. Why is it that everyone automatically assumes that the Tribal members are the ones doing this. There are a lot of Non tribal members out there famous for stealing nets and only God knows what they do with the fish. I'm sure they wouldn't want to get busted with a freezer and a half of walleye fillets. So they dump them and put the blame on an easy target. Sorry this is just a touchy subject for me.

No need to apologize leechbait, you bring up a good point and I agree with you. Some people don't see the other side of things or from a different perspective, they only believe what they want to believe.

Good point.

well don't I look like a closed minded A**

leechbait, when I read your repy I couldn't figure out why you got so defenceive because they article I had found pointed no fingers at all. It just stated that a gill net full of walleye was found in the woods near leech lake. Anyway I redid my serch to see if you may have found a different article and seen what you were refering to.

In no way did I intend to "FINER POINT" the only pointing I was trying to do was towards the fact that this sort of thing does happen and does get published, seems maybe not the most upstanding publiciations in your piont of view but you can't deny that it does happen.

P.S. sory about the spelling I sock!

Sorry Fishing Addict, I wasn't saying you were finger pointing. I got defensive about it because I'm a Native American and that Mille Lacs and the surrounding area area famous for these kind of accusations. It wasn't my intention to single you out. I only wanted to bring the other side of it, and I did that in a civil way I think. I do not deny it happens. It disgusts me as much as it does you, believe me it does. And you're right I'm sure I did read a different article. Again, no disrespect to you, and I think we both said what we had to say and we should just leave it at that.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
