      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 .

Any Ely luck last weekend?

It seems the Duluth boys have found some fish worth posting about. I don't see anything out of Ely though. tongue.gif

We fished Farm Saturday and Sunday. It was dead in the spots I fished 3 weeks ago. Kinda figured. We searched around but just picked up scattered fish from 16 fow to 1 fow.

In all, about 4 walleye to 16 inches on jig/leech. 4 pike on spinnerbaits killed right after the weed clump. Mostly 2-3 pounds with one 8 shaking off. Finally a few of those plump sunnies on leeches by the weeds. And last, about 10 smallies on pop r and tubes. Biggest about 16 inches also.

Lots of casts to get that far. So, what did I miss? confused.gif

Good question. I fished very little but did manage to get out for 1.5 hours of panfishing & 2 hours of walleye fishing in the Ely area last weekend.

Panfish were biting in the deeper weeds, LMB were tight to shore & SMB bit on my plugs while trolling for 'eyes. Seems they are on the rocks pretty good. No bites from 'eyes, only skeeters. No fish for the braggers board, but worth posting...

Could have fished more & I am sorry I couldn't goto Algoma last weekend but check out the Blue Berry crop, thats a shure bet! grin.gif

Yeah Steve, but what a great start you had! smile.gif Is it the employment switch (can't call it a career switch so much)?

Maybe you need to do a couple lake/sunset shoots???? Loons???? Mergansers????? Eagles????? Any of these sounding like an excuse to be out yet? grin.gif

Well, Wanderer, late May was weddings, and June was taken up completely with weekend guided photo excursions. Then there was the family reunion over July 4th, and now it's finishing off the new garage and getting siding going on the house addition.

And I've also started work on a fishing book.

Sigh.

I'll have to shoot you an e-mail one of these weekends, Casey. I'm definitely going to need a break from work. grin.gif

      WARNING a buddy was on  MELISSA and was aiming towards the crappie hole in the NE Corner/First break to fish out there last night.  He was checking ice and was having 10" of ice then hit 3"!  Please be careful out there.  Needless to say he turned around and went back to the access.

      Best use I can think of for a selfie stick. Great fish.

      I will second what Icehawk said.... some good lakes around you. Briggs chain is close, some very nice fish in that system. I tend to fish fairly shallow(under 10ft) most of the time 6-8 right in or on the edge of the weeds for the gills.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.
