      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 .

Good goin, Todd and Fisky, awesome fish. Glad you are outa your slump, Norm!! I was on the water Mon-Wed and fishing was very, very good. Kinda weird tho--some spots were void that usually produce this time of year. Monday, the Knight reefs were slow but the rocks further north and west were loaded. Tuesday, Arnesons was empty (boats and fish) but other west side rocks were rockin. Baitfished until they moved out then pulled the white #11 a little deeper and got into some biggies. A snake stole that #11. Paints drying on a new one! Wednesday, the LP reefs were empty but the mud to the east was really good--lots of size and decent numbers.

Norm, that 34' stuff we longlined in last year was pretty much empty--but it's time for that to load up. I'll shoot you a mail next time I come up alone--heading to Rainy the next couple days.

Nice Piggies Fisky and Todd!!

My Dad and I will be up this weekend fishing out of Arnesens. We will be in a black and platinum 2010 Pro Guide. Swing over and say hi if you see us.

Fisky,

Do you know what channel everyone runs on the radio? I did not make it up to the get-together, hopefully next year the wifey and I will be able to make it up again. If you are out fishing Saturday or Sunday look us up or just hooler on the radio.

Later

Brian, most of the chatter on the west side is on 6. Walleyejon and Pat the "Old Guide" would surely talk with ya. Pat goes by "Powerful Magic" and some of the other charecters from FM should be out.

I gots a trip out this afternoon, doubt I'll get out over the weekend as Mrs Fisky would maybe have a cow as I have'nt been around the house much this past week!!!

You and your Dad are gonna have a good weekend. May wanna bring sunscreen!

Pulled around a coupla rock piles with nothin. Finally found a few fish to make the day fine. SRJ started it off with a fat 26+ first fish which ended up the biggy for the day.

Well here is my report from the weekend. And what an awesomeone it was. We longlined cranks arounds the reefs on Saturday, and ended up with a 23", 26.5", 27", 28.5", and a 29.25". Man we had a blast on the big pond. We caught 12 fish total an Saturday. On sunday we ate breakfast and waited for a storm to roll across the lake. We did not get out to fish the spot we caught the big girls at, and only managed two smaller fish Sunday morning. All in all it was an great weekend.

We were out on Saturday and Sunday pulling balls. Only went out 1-2 miles on Sat. due to the forecasted 10-25 mph winds (which didn't get to 25 thankfully). Had OK numbers on Sat. but generally smaller (1 - 25"). Sunday was a pretty good day with nice 17-19" keepers and another 25" for fun. We waited until the wind settled down in early afternoon and could then go anywhere. Went out 6 miles and trolled around some rocks. It took awhile to find the right depth and right color but after a couple of hours we figured it out and had a fun next couple of hours.

Made it out today and man was it hot! Fishing was pretty good all around. I talked with Fisky, TravisC, and ccmonsr over a couple cold ones and it sounded like they had a pretty good day also. Lots of fish being caught on top of the reefs along with some edge fish popping the TD-11's today. I do know one thing, I am ready for a cold front. A couple pics from today

Yesterday for me was slow. Did manage a nice 27.5", 25" and a half dozen low slots, along with 3 eaters and a few dinks. Lots of boats on Arnesens, and it looked like alot were being caught up on top.

Two of us had fair day today, we used copper spinners, crawlers and bottom bouncers. Fished out from the rocks in 30-32.5 fow. Threw back a 24+" and a 20". Were filled out by noon with some perfect sized eaters. We launched at Arnesen's.

      Finally, I try lead core every time I am up there and no luck so far..Seems the bite doesn't start til late August..Will try next week...thanks for the report...

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!
    • mtheis
      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish. 
    • mtheis
      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.
    • Daniel Anderson
      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
