      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 .

Fishing Mille Lacs

Recommended Posts

I'm new here so I hope it is not considered inappropriate to ask members where and how to fish. I am going to Mille Lacs on Thursday for the first time in two years. Probably will put the boat in at the south end (Cove Bay), but could go anywhere. Will fish from about 4:00 PM until whenever. I have a GPS and have already input the coordinates for many of the spots marked on ProMap Series LakeMaster map of Mille Lacs. That map shows coordinates for a lot of the flats in the northwest quadrant of the lake, plus many reefs in other parts of the lake. Can anyone give me some advice on how deep the walleyes are likely to be? Are they out on the mud flats yet? On gravel? What techniques are likely to work best this time of year, and should we change techniques as we get near and after sunset? Any advice on location and technique would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Not enough

There's plenty of old posts that cover all your questions but I'll give you my two cents worth. The fish are out on the flats, we fished on Monday and caught fish anywhere from 23-31". we drifted the flats with 10" snells with red hook and white beeds and Leaches we also caugth fish with a spinner and Crawler. I would find a flat and depending on the wind find the edge and troll or drift. if you don't catch any fish or mark fish move to the next flat. It really isn't that hard to catch fish and most will be nice fish.

Good Luck

Mark

not enough we fished the mud flats on Sunday caught fish on top of the flats, on the slopes and out in the deep. They just seemed to be scattered all around the flats. We fished with spinners 8-10' crawlers and leeches. Hammered Copper was the best.

Just spend a while and look at some of these posts. Head out to the mud for sure!!!! Try the tops and the edges. If there are a few in the boat , rig up differently. Last Fri they preferred chart hooks and a chart. bead, over red hook . Leeches, different color beads, and spinner colors. Crawlers also. Just make sure you use snells anywhere from 7-11 ft.

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.

      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff
