      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 .

Was out on Bald Eagle earlier this week looking for bass. Wondering if anybody is seeing any over 12-13 inches?

Yes. Haven't been there in a bit, but we caught some decent bass out there, mostly shallow during the day & out in 8-12' come sunset.

We had a few 15-17" last time out, but that was about a month and a half ago. A couple were deeper, but a majority were in shallower.

I've caught a few on the bull rushes over by the island. The largest so far I've pulled out has been just over 3 lbs. What's been working for me is crankbaits like the DT series as well as shad raps. Try the south end of the bullrushes and don't be afraid to use a deep diver as it shoots down to 20 ft quickly.

I was to at that tourney and all our fish were caught on north side casting cranks only 13lbs but i think the weights would have been better if the storms did not come in.

In late July I had a club tourney out there and got all my fish shallow on a jig.

OK maybe its not just me. We had a small club night out there last night and would like to think a few pretty good sticks. It only took a little over 10 lbs. to win and big fish was under 3 lbs. The wind made dock fishing pretty tough. The side I wanted to fish anyway. I did throw cranks on the south side of the reed island and caught a couple dinks. One was a little ambitous he was about 10 inches and had a DT10 dissapeard in his mouth but with a little TLC was no worse for wear. At the end of the night (of coarse) I found some bigger fish in the sparce coontail flippin' a big tube. Too little too late. Bigger is relative. Thanks for the info. This was the first time I've posted anything and had alot of ideas so that was great. (Or maybe that makes it easier for me to outthink myself.) Anyways thanks again. Next week up to the Isanti area.

I will admit they are ambitious. I had a bass no longer than probably 8 or 9 inches hit (and get hooked) on a super shad. Boy was I surprised. The bait was as big as the fish!!

the access is actually pretty good. Ramsey county maintains it as well as the park around it. Plus, with all the rain, it's come back to a decent launch,

      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!

      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.

      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.

      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
