      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 .

Cass Lake Info for Week of July 21st

Recommended Posts

Windy City Walleye Hunter

Hey Guys,

I hope most of you will check this thread before you head out. I know there are a few of us who will be up in Cass this week and next and I thought we could give a little info that might make it possible to run into each other while we are up there. I will start the info thread:

I will be at Wishbone Resort from July 21st thru Aug 3rd. I have a red Lund Alaskan with a 40 hp Merc 4 stroke. I am a big fisherman, going about 6 foot 2 with a beard, glasses and carrying about 350 Lbs of ballast in the boat. You can usually find me on Deadmans Bar most days at one time or another though I do hit O'Neils Point and other parts of the lake on a day to day basis. Give me a shout if you see me on the water.

I'll be at my cabin this weekend and next. It's by Break on the Lake's lodge.

Red and White Triton. I'll be out trolling Buck or Deadman's or Windigo this weekend and probably next. I do mostly shad rappin' and spend the days with the family.

Good Luck!

Don't worry about Deadmans's.... there's no fish there anyhow. grin.gif

It's about dead center of the main basin, north half of Cass. Maybe a little closer to the NE quarter of the lake? Easy to spot on a lake map. Probably renamed more recently, but it's on of the larger mid-lake bars that runs north to south. Got some really deep water on it's northern and western edge, with a few good turns/contours as well. Hard to miss once you're on it. Good luck!

I will be there on a short trip... July 22-25. I will likely have the smallest boat out of the bunch of you all- 14' blue & white AMF Crestliner w/ 9.9 Johnson with Minnesota tags. As you can guess, you will not likely find me out in the middle of the main lake most of the time (unless it's calm). I will likely be around Star Island, Buck, Windigo, Pughole and various other "niche" spots. If any of you see my boat floundering in some whitecaps, call the Coastguard for me...

I haven't been on the forums here for awhile, but since I'm heading up to Cass tomorrow morning, I figured I should check in. I'll be up all week at Break on the Lake with my parents, brothers, and grandfather. We have a little 15' Skeeter with a Johnson 60HP.

Feel free to say hello if you cross my path! And for anyone staying at Break, if you're going to the dinner at the lodge tomorrow night, I'll be wearing a White Sox hat...

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
    • Finnish Flash
      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
