      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 .

We are headed back up to Cass the first week of August for our annual trip. We would like to know how the walleye fishing is and where can we find them? Thanks for any info.

Just got home from Cass yesterday and take my word for it...do exactly as i say and you will catch at least 5-8 walleye a night.....go get yourself a SSR 7 Rappala Shap Rap in Blue/Chrome. Go to O'Neil Point on the west side...troll from 6-8ft the entire way to the last boat dock by Windigo Portage. Start at about 7pm and troll till the moon goes down about 1:30am....you'll thank me for it..

Our week 21-28...my buddy and I caught 41 walleye of 15in or better with the best being 28 1/2in (8.9lbs). Also caught perch and pike before the sun went down and on wed night at about 120am...i caught a 49in musky on the same lure right in front of the last boat dock closest to windigo portage.

Good Luck

I fished the same spot you mentioned back on Sunday to no avail. Of course, I was trying to fish there in the middle of the afternoon. Were you fishing out over the deep weedline edge, or were you simply fishing the sparsely-weeded sand-flats? You catch pike in the same area? How big were the pike?

Thanks for the info, how far were you running the crank behind the boat and what was the speed of the troll? Thanks again we will definitely give it a try.

Cranks were about 25-30 yards behind the boat...boat speed, ya know I dont have an exact mph, but on my boat, it was fairly slow, just enough to get the boat moving from idle speed, maybe 1 mph....

I was fishing the sparsely weeded sand flats....biggest pike was just over 31"...caught about 11 pike that I can remember....most were around 24-28

Thanks again for the information, we will put it to good use. I have three boys under 12 and they need a little action to keep them interested, I could fish all day and only pick up a few, but they....they would be happy fishing for tiny perch as long as there was steady action. This way it sounds like we can both get what we want, some walleyes and steady action. Thanks, we are coming up next week so I hope the pattern holds.

I never heard of catching pike like that on the sandflats... in July no less! Maybe it was because you were out there in the evening. But then again, you said you caught the pike before sunrise. 11 pike in 2-3 hours... sounds pretty good. Was there any real structure out there that the pike were relating to? Most of the pike I ran into were less than 24" and less numerous and I was fishing "typical" pike structure. Anyone else have luck with pike on the sandflats before? Maybe I'm missing something here...

I've caught several on the sand flats both day and at night. A few skis as well. If there is food there they will be there eating.
