      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 .

Seasaw ... Got back last week from a 4-day trip with Rainy Lake Houseboats. We traveled thru the Brule narrows, and out towards Blueberry Island on the East side of the lake. Mid-lake reefs were the ticket out there, fishing 30-50 feet deep. Find the top of a reef, throw out a marker, and drive around the reef in a in-out pattern until you mark some fish on the electronics. If you find a decent amount of "hooks", throw out another marker, and work that spot. I found that the other marker @ the top of the reef acted like a dummy marker (pulled other boats there), while we caught fish deeper. Lindy rig with a 3 foot snell and a small yellow or orange bead in front of the hook ... crawlers or leeches (bring both). That was my first time on the east end of the lake ... awesome fishery! Not sure if that pattern remains in August, but there's my $.02. We moored in Brown's Bay, and had short boat rides to quite a few reefs. It was kinda a roll of the dice ... the site was marked tent-site only (just inside of Brown's Bay on the left), but we figured we would move if asked. Very nice spot, with sand beach and fire-ring, and blueberries by the bucket-full! Also extremely well-protected from all winds. Have fun and good luck!

Hey Sea!

Lake Erie huh! My grandparents are from Ohio, and I used to get out every once in a while to Lake Erie. I can remember pulling those Erie Deeries SP? FYI try them here. Just like at home with a gob of crawler. Good TImes! I'll probably be down there in the December time visiting family and friends close to the Port Clinton area. This isn't any secret information, but be prepared with spinner rigs in hammered gold and Chartruesse. Get yourself some shiners, leeches and Crawlers. Literally these fish change there moods day in and day out up here. pull or cast these presentations along deep humps and hold on buddy! Hope you have a great trip! Your coming from a great fishery, but this is arguably the most beautiful body of water in the world!

Just up there last week for the 3rd time in 5 years. We did fairly well. Limited out only 1 time on 1st day in 45 min!!! The hot weather didn't help. We drove thru the Brule twice and caught a few eyes each time. I never did well deep(over 20') We also did a lot better the last hour before dark and into the night....full moon. The fish come shallow at night 4-6' and for us it was easier to fish and find fish. Good Luck. I marked a ton of fish between 30-40 but never pulled any nice 'eyes out.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
