      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 .

I'm looking for a place to go with my wife for our one year anniversary. It would be July 20-22, Fri-Sun. I was thinking the Walker area would be a nice place to go for an extended weekend. I would prefer something on the lake with a A/C room and a hot-tub. I'm sure the casino has nice rooms, but I would like something more private, if you get my drift ooo.gif. Room rates need to be reasonable, but it wouldn't be a deal breaker if the place was worth it.

Anybody have some suggestions for me?

I stopped by and checked out Trappers landing while on Leech over the 4th. Seemed to be a real nice place. They were working on some new condo's on the west end, but the cabins appeared to be in real nice shape. Didn't go inside.

The food was great at Beachfire grill. We only had burgers, but I heard everything else was great too. Service was the best we had up there.

We also stopped in Trappers Landing and had just the opposite experience. We had the worst service we have ever had at any establishment. The bartender wasn't to be found. When she would come around, it was like pulling teeth to get her to pour us a beer. She told us she didn't want to be there and that since she lived onsite, she always had to work. She left to shower and left the bar unattended. At times it took about 30 minutes to get a beer and we were the only group in the bar/restaurant. I had to go upstairs to ask another lady, who was actually pretty nice, to serve us. We asked for a couple pickles and she reluctantly gave us some, but said not to ask for anymore. Anyway, I doubt I will ever step foot in the place. I just can't justify spending over $100 again in a place where you don't feel like you or your business is welcome.

Northlander,

Looks like I won't be able to give you a report. I had to push our trip back until August 24th - 26th. I'd appreciate if you could post a report on your trip though.

Northlander, he has taken care of this in a very professional manner. I retract all the comments I made regarding Trapper's Landing and the experience we encountered. Maybe we just were in there on a bad day? Either way, I would like to thank Tom Linderholm and Robin Bucholz for their "over the top generousity". We ate at Trapper's Landing last Thursday and I can honestly say it was the best food we ever had. I would highly recommend visiting their restaurant if anyone is in the Leech Lake area. Robin personally waited on us and the service was second to none. Once again, thank you Tom and Robin, we will definitely be back soon!

I know Tom and his crew aim to run a very customer friendly place to stay and eat. I can honestly say every place I have eaten at that Tom over sees has had very good food and great service. Tom doesnt accept average thats for sure.

Im glad Tom took care of this in a timely/ professional manner for you. I knew he would.

Well here is my Leech Lake Report for 13-16th of Aug. PERCH PERCH and more PERCH. It was nice to have action but no matter what I tried and how deep I was I only caught perch. Did manage a few small eyes but just couldnt hit a keeper to save my rear. I fished crawlers, leeches, cranks of every sort and even tossed some plastics.

Later I talked to a couple guides and they said the ever change in winds these past fews days has made it tuff.

One thing I can say from talking to many fisherman from the area is get out early and late and hit anyplace from 6' to 12' with a lindy and crawler combo and either drift it or slow troll it. Wind was tuff most of the time I was there and had my magnum sock out to kep on the spots long enough to hit a few fish.

Oh well it was great experience and the food at Trappers Landing more than made up for my lack of walleye catching ability.

BIG Lake and beautiful. Tons of reefs to fish. I probably only saw 1/20th of the lake in 3 days. Ill be back next year for my walleye revenge. tongue.gif

Those who live close have a real Gem.

      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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
    • MinnowBuckets
      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.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
