      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 .

Muskie fishing in the Frazer Bay area?

Recommended Posts

I am going to be up fishing muskies for the first time on Lake Vermilion and staying in Frazer Bay on the 3rd weekend of September and I was wondering if someone could tell me how the muskie fishing is in this area. Just wondering in general if the area will be a good spot to work, not looking for specifics necessarily.

Thanks.

Hey Krats,

Are you going to be healed up by then??? I don't know that there's a bad area of the lake for musky fishing. The Frazer Bay area can be excellent. You're a relatively short boat ride away from the Big Bay area on the east end. But between there and Frazer Bay could keep you busy for a long time too. It'll be a little more protected if you have a lot of wind as well.

Thanks Aaron, I hope to be in good shape by then, doctor says 3 more weeks and they will cut me loose to do whatever I want.

You and I will have to talk more before I go, I may need a few last minute items for the Lakewood from "MTO" for the trip. I am sure you have a few ideas for me.

I will be in touch. smile.gif

Rackenstuff,

That's what I thought, but wasn't really sure.

Thanks for the info, depressing though, I was hoping you would say that the bay was the home of many 50+ers.

Don't we all wish we could find a spot like that? Come to think of it, I am pretty sure I would not share that with alot of people.

Rack,

Sounds good, I will email you tonight. I will be up with my brother-in-law and we are kind of new to muskie fishing still. We will be up early Friday morning through Sunday morning.

The fishing was tough. The weather last week through Friday night was messed up, lots of rain over the last week or so. You could not see bottom in 6' in alot of areas, I understand that it should be gin clear. I guess that is what 16" of rain in a short time will do to a lake.

We managed 5 follows but no takers. Well one grabbed the tail of my Phantom and held onto it at boat side for a few moments but she did not eat it.

The scenery was nice and I will go back.

Hey Rackenstuff,

Looked around Gold Island for you on Saturday. We guessed that maybe it was too windy for you.

Did you get out?

Catch you next trip maybe.

We had a massive tree fall on our cabin and required a good deal of work on Saturday.

The only musky I saw was fishing walldoes with Cliff!

Massive ski followed the walleye to the boat!

i did throw a double cowgirl around old weedbeds with no luck.

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
