      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 went out to Tetonka this AM. The northerns and Walleyes are chasing White Bass. The White Bass are around 6" long. The last two times I've gone out all the Walleye have come from around tight schools of White Bass. The bite seams to build as the schools compress then quit as if someone turn off a switch. We are catching the Walleye's on larger profile bait like #7 jointed shad raps in 12-18 FOW on inside turns in the dropoff.

The moss is breaking loose from the bottom and is making a mess of the lake along with making a good trolling run next to imposable.

Good luck!

We went out this AM, from 6-11:00. We fished the 10-20FOW zone. It was fantastic!

1 Walleye

4 Lm Bass

6 Drum

15 White Bass

Over 20 Northerns that were from 22" to 26".

In case you missed it, that was four Lm Bass to one Walleye from deep water! I see this alot this time of year. As for the northerns, we could have cought more if I hadn't switched to a monster Muskie lure.

#7 or a size smaller jointed Shad rap type lures were just to much for them to resist.

I have never been to Tetonka, just wondering if there are any shore fishing spots for white bass or notherns?

I was out with the family this afternoon and early evening scouting for a guide trip tomorrow. Didn't run into anything overly consistent but I think we'll be able to stay busy. Trolling for me too unless something changes my mind. I had to vacate the area that has produced though and headed way West. I'll post a more detailed report tomorrow evening.

After the wind picked up yesterday we did some trolling near the landing to the DNR fishing pier. There were plenty of 22-23" Northerns and white Bass in the area.

After hauling grain all day, I made it to the lake just before 7:00 pm. I decided to fish for northerns which I rarely do. Started out trolling a #5 shad rap in 8 to 10 feet and caught half a dozen sheepies and white bass in 40 minutes. I switched to a #7 tail dancer and went to 12 feet. In the next 40 minutes I caught a 28" northern, a 16" walleye and a super-thick 36" northern. The last fish was way too big for my rubbber-mesh net so I landed it by hand--easier then I thought it would be. A quick measurement and she was back in the lake, no worse for the wear hopefully. By the way, the fish that hit the hardest--was the walleye.

Boat motor is in the shop and it will be awhile befor they can get to it. Is the fishing pier by the access any good? How deep does it get off the pier? Motor has been in the shop for 2 weeks now and need to get out fishing this tuesday before I have a break down.

In front of the pier is a nice location for multi-species action. You can expect to catch about anything but the 'eyes, northerns and bass seem to be active there now.

The water at the end of the pier is not all that deep. There is a drop off of around 6-8' just past the end of it though and 12FOW is not that far off. I would try casting to the north east.

Went out to Tetonka tonight and didn't get ANYTHING. I tried shad raps, spinnger, worm lures with jig heads, topwaters, and even the good ol leech and jig on a slip bobber rig. I tried by tree cover, shallow and deep (less than 10 feet and then greater than 10 feet). I think I just wasn't in the right spots. I heard a bunch of the guys loading their boat saying they did good on pike, bass, and 'eyes. I saw a couple of guys pulling in several nice pike.

I must be doing something wrong.

No, I don't think this cold front has helped the bite. I find as long as the water temp is slowly going up, the bite just keeps getting better. When the water temp stops going up, the good bite slowly starts falling apart. Last week we were out in front of a cold front and had a barometer reading of 29.85 after a week of 30.1. In other word; right place, right time.

I did have a very good Bass bite the night before on another lake. So it wasn't just Tetonka that was turned on last weekend.

If you are looking to catch some Northerns on Tetonka. the bite seem to start around 9am out from the landing. We were there today and so were the Northerns, White Bass, Drum and Lg Mouth Bass. The bite was slowed but we did catch a fish every 3rd trip pasted the dock.

I turned 50 today, so we were in Tom M's boat today. My boat will be in the water tomorrow and I'm heading to Frances.

Yerterday I went to a differant lake with the better half. I cought a 11.4 lb Buffalo. What a blast.

The swimming beach on the E end near the Cannon River outlet, off Best Point Resort (if allowed) and the fishing pier near the hatchery are all locations worthy of an effort.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
