      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 .

Slow fished 7 mile & Seguchie was out from 5:30 till 1:00 caught 3 keepers and 5 throw backs. We caught fish but it was pretty slow we did much better on Thursday. Less hours and caught around 15 fish with 2 slots.

The fishing has slowed for me from what it has been, but still definitely worth the trip. 2 guys caught about 12 fish, 4 slots in a half days worth. I would recommend getting away from all the boats. Was by a lot of boats with nothing going, and didnt start catching til we found our own spot.

Fished Sat. from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the mud. There were 3 of us and we trolled cranks using lead core from 5 to 7:30 an we boated a 22". Switched to slip bobbers and leeches from 7:30 to 10 and proceeded to catch 27", 3-26", 24", and a keeper 15". Most fish were caught right towards dark around 9:00. Beautiful day on the lake with a slight breeze and didn't feel like 95 degrees.

3 of us caught 18 fish on the mud. 5 fish from 26-27 1/4". 3 keepers. Find the right color combo and the bite can go from non-existent too very consistent. Leeches and crawlers on lindys and slips bobber.

We fished Blue Jug flat. We caught 12. No fish in the slot. Fish were in the 22-26 1/2 " range.

Caught fish on both leeches & crawlers. 10 ft snells, chart hook and single chart bead. grin.gif Seems like the last two trips (6/29 and yesterday, the chart hooks produced and the red has hooks have not been as productive. I've heard of people doing well over the last week using orange hooks also.

We also found that the red hook wasn't producing for us on Sat. One guy caught the first 4 fish on a chart. hook and orange bead. Once we all used those colors, we all started catching fish. Worked 7 and 8 mile and caught 12 fish, biggest 27" and two under 20".

I guess it pays off to have everyone in the boat trying something different as far as colors go. grin.gif Way to go!!!!

If you get up there soon, try orange, or chart hooks.

      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

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
