      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 have been hopping and the fish have been cooperating (most days). Most of our fishing has been on Gull and there really hasn't been any reason to head elsewhere. We have been working all over the lake, the fish seem to be starting to slide down just a hair into deeper water. We caught a number of fish on jigs this a.m.. I went on a guided trip yesterday and had a blast. Jeff Anderson who has been doing quite a few fill-in trips with us took me out yesterday along with Larry and Steve from General Mills. Wow, was that fun to be a fisherman. I think I will have to do more of that.

Go Twins, it's not too late!

Good night,

Walleyedan

Will be in the area at my cabin (little lake, not the big ones) and will hopefully have my Dad on some smallies smile.gif

Also Dan, I finally did try a bit harder, and a box of 3" 12 ga. shells DO fit in the Arctic Armor jacket pockets, with just a tad bit of squeezing and using two hands, but they DO fit! smile.gif So I will most likely be getting a DuckBlind jacket from you at some time, but just spent a small fortune on roof and new windows in my old house, so funds are tight right now... drat...

Thanks,

Dan,

I heard you have an old pro working with you right now.

His name is Bruce.

A friend of mine was fishing with him last weekend and had a great time!

Box,

Glad you were able to squeeze them in. Don't you only need 6 shells though? What size do you wear in the jacket, we have two medium suits at the moment but are expecting more soon.

Skeets,

Yep. Bruce has been very helpful and is one heck of a fisherman. There are not many guides like him out there, but now we have another to add to our already great crew. Glad to hear your friends had a good trip, love to hear that!

Hey walleyedan, I am heading up to Upper Whitefish on Friday night for the weekend and just wondering how the Walleye action was over the past weekend. I know a big cold front is coming through Friday so I think I will be hitting the bass in the weeds but just wondering if you have done any trolling after dark with Raps or if you are still fishing with Lindy rigs and redtails/leeches. I always buy my bait at S and W bait because it is a great place. I know you also operate out of there as well. Anyway, just wondering and I hope you are having a great day!!

Merc40,

I have not given Whitefish the true test lately, I have only spent time fishng northerns up there as of late (last Friday and Saturday). Toby was up there guiding on Friday and Saturday and was fishing walleyes, he did well one day and only caught a few the next day (along with a number of northerns). We did catch some nice bass as we tried fishing some huge chubs for northerns. The bass were in deep water, 25 plus. We have been doing quite well on the Gull Lake walleyes and I just got done cleaning up after a good trip this a.m.. I had a nice couple out from Indiana and they were loving it! We are still rigging with red tails. Yes, you are right I have been operating out of S&W for the past few years. Sherree does have the best walleye bait, hands down. I will look for the Merc 40 up on the Chain this weekend.

Take care,

Walleyedan

Dan,

I will be up on the Chain this Saturday for the final day of our league. My bro-in-law and I are planning on putting in our time on Big Trout for some big hawgs.

I have not seen you for awhile so we will stop by if we see you. We will be in a green Smokercraft with a Merc.

Hi Brett,

It's going to be busy up there. Northerns Inc., yours, lots of fall fishers and those darn guides. What an awesome day today, maybe a bit too much wind though. Good luck and maybe see you up there (I'm sure you'll see me). Hope all is well.

Good to hear back from you Dan. A few of us were wondering if N.I. was going to be there again this year. It makes it more interesting trying find spots that have not been hammered.

I have not fished since June because of a broken collar bone, and having surgery. So I am anxious to get in the boat tomorrow.

Good luck tomorrow.

Brett

Hey Dan, Just wanted to let you know that I was fishing Upper Whitefish Saturday and Sunday and the Walleyes cooperated. My dad was up on Friday and hooked a beautiful, healthy 19 incher on a spinner rig with a redtail from S & W wink.gif and I hooked into a very fat 22 incher on Saturday morning before the rain/mist hit around noon. The bass were biting everywhere from under docks to in the weeds to near the shore to out on the weed line. I think we missed at least one more eye trolling rapalas but overall had a great weeekend. We have fished the chain and stayed at Heath's for over 30 years now and absolutely love the chain. I noticed they have one of your brochures in the resort office so hopefully you will get some calls from people there this fall!! Have a great week and good luck out on the water this week!!

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
