      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 .

Hey Woodland going to be spending a week on Miltona this coming week. Wondering if you have any words of wisdom on where the walleyes are biting and what the guys at your place have been using to get them? Was out there last Saturday morn and didn't get anything besides a bunch of Large Mouths, then we got chased off by the wind. tongue.gif

Hey Alex1,

Sorry for the delay. This is our busy time of year. Just to set the record strait, I don't want you to get the wrong idea, I rarely have word of "wisdom" when it comes to fishing. crazy.gif

Here is my two cents. I am sure someone else can tell you another technique that is working better... It seems like the best bet for quality is trolling cranks. I hear of some walleye being caught with slip bobbers and lindys with leeches, a few dandys, but a lot of 14"ers.

However, for the quality fish, I would stop at the tackle shop on the way up and spend a few bucks on an assortment of crank baits. It also eleminates the rock bass, perch and sunfish.

I was out last night for the first time in a while and caught two, after sunset. One 16 and one just over 22, one in about 17' and one in about 13'.

Hope this helps a little! Let us know how it goes.

Good Luck,

Woodland, every little bit helps when it comes to fishing tips. Thanks for the reply, and I'll be sure to send a post when we get back as to how we did. Sounds like its going to be a scorcher out there this next week, sounds like it will be a good week to sleep in for the morning and sit in the shade with a beverage of choice during the afternoon wink.gif, then hit it hard just before sunset. grin.gif

Well I'm home again and it was a tough bite. Managed to catch one walleye each morning using a Chartruese and Silver shad rap, that was a keeper. They ran the 15"-16" range, so nice fish for the fry pan. The evening bite was pretty well non-exsisting for me. Managed a lot of Bass and and a few northerns, and a couple of small muskie that would follow when you checked for weeds. The fish I did manage to catch were excellent for the shore lunch one night, with a few fried potatos ooo.gif. Will be coming up again hte later part of August, and agin last part of Sept. Hopefully with the lower temps and likewise ater temps the fish will be coporating a little better. All in all we had a great week, temps were a little outrageous on Wed. but still managed to find things to keep cool and enjoy. Monday morning was interesting when the fog got real thick and I had forgotten to grab my GPS before i went out. Did manage to find my way back by keeping the sun to my back going very slow. crazy.gif

      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.

      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

      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.
