      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 hit several lakes this weekend.

We caught some decent slabs and a few gills plus some nice eyes.

Nice going, Gents. The bride and I fished Big Sandy on Saturday for about 4 hours. Caught about 30 walleyes (small) and several nice crappies, the biggest 1 lbs. 7 ounces. The fish really turned on during the afternoon breeze that kicked up for awhile. Fishing should just keep getting better.

No I do not.I'm running 13-18 FOW just off of the deep water until almost dark.Then I'll slide up to 9-11FOW.

I troll 1.3-1.45 in the deeper stuff and 1.7mph in the shallower water.

Oh and use a 1/4 oz head.

Thanks Keith. One more thing. Would you think this technique would work on any of the area lakes at this time of year or is it unique to the lake you are fishing?

It works on every lake I've tried it plus I've gotten reports that others have tried it & it is working for them too.

I've gotten eyes and anything else with teeth on

(Contact Us Please),Round,Waukenabo,French,Gun,Big Sandy,Wilkins,Section 10&12,Sissabagamah,Rabbit,Clear,Dam,Long,Rat,Flemming,Farm&Elm Island,Ripple,Hanging Kettle,Pine,Cedar.

I've used them up in the BWCAW too with great success.

It comes down to what color that lake likes and speed of your troll.I should also say I've drilled eyes in the rivers around here too.

It may take us to go fishing so I can help you build your confidense level.

Hey crappie, great info. Are you imparting a snap jigging action or any other kind of action when you troll those plastics.

Nope,well sometimes ,but mostly I'll sort of long line it & hold my tip up.When I feel the pip I'll drop my tip & then set.

I have not been to Rat since last winter.The fish there with all of the weeds shy my off.

Here's a few from tonight on those plastics.

I had my Dad & Boyd out tonight.

They had a ball with many eyes boated.

Boyd wanted to fish his way until he saw 15 or so then he switched and he started to drill them 1 after another.

They are sorta small for the most part ,but the action was as fast as catching sunnies.

Sorry for the late post. Have not been on the website for awhile. Got the crappies & walleyes on the north end on a rock pile. It's usually consistant all year here, at least for the eyes. 13-20 feet of water. Will be in the BWCA this weekend then back to Big Sandy for 4 days the following weekend. Can't wait. You guys certainly are the king fishing dinks. I wish I got out as much as you guys do. tongue.gif

I gave up my life in Mpls back in 87 to do this.

Being able to hunt/fish whenever did not come cheaply.

This is my life ,it's not for everyone ,but if I can share some things to help I will.

Boy she got chilly,almost making ice.

Those eyes are on the feed bag!

About 3 years ago I used it out in front of Sheshebe and I drilled them that whole winter while the slabs were there in that 16 FOW.

I've got an old red Lund Pretator with a white tiller 50hp Johnson on it and usually have my two black & white English Setters aboard, if you see me on Big Sandy, cruise in and say hi. I'm going to the BWCA tomorrow but will be back up to the ranch for 4 days the following weekend, and most weekends after that.

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
