      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 .

Great Walleye Bite- Gull Lake Report!

Recommended Posts

Sportland_Bait

Well after taking the day off yesterday, I just had the bug to get out on Gull again and chase some walleyes. Over the last two weeks our guides have been coming and going here at the bait shop. I just had to see if the reports I was hearing were true. Lets just say that today was awesome to say the least. Half the time I couldn't even get the bait to the bottom before I'd get a strike. The bass and walleyes were hanging out together on all of the spots I fished. 25-28 feet was the zone and Lindy rigs or jigs tipped with redtails was most productive. I wish that I would have had another passenger in the boat for some photos. All together I boated about 20 walleyes and a half dozen bass in a few hours. It really is an awesome time out there right now. I suggest everyone get out there and enjoy it. Our guides have a couple of openings yet this weekend if anyone wants to fish. Have a great time over the holiday!

Have the fish been relating to the early/late periods of the day or are they starting to bite anytime? I would love to get up there but sounds like an afternoon trip might be all I can swing... laugh.gif

I was only out in the morning until about 10:00 am, but I was talking to one of our guides that was out there yesterday afternoon. He said it was just as good in the afternoon. I think a little wave action on the water might be the most important variable that effects the activity level. The size range varied. I didn't have anything huge but there were some nice keepers, 14-17 inchers. Then of course there were some small throwbacks.

Great report Jason. Sounds like the walleyes are going strong on Gull. My Dad and I were going to make it up there to fish and wondering if you were fishing any structure such as humps or points or do you have to find a weedline and fish it? What end of the lake seem to be the best?

Thanks in advance!!

I found most of my fish on submerged points. Sometimes nothing more than just a small knob on a large piece of structure. I caught fish on four different spots, so I think there are a lot of spots that are producing fish. The fish are going pretty good on both ends of the lake. As a rule I think that you will always find the fish on the south end to be a little bit better average size.

Great report Jason. I'll be up there in ~3 weeks for 4 days of riggin' with redtails on Gull. Hope the pace continues.

It is a great pace! Funny story today. One of our guides had an afternoon trip starting at 3:30. He left and about an hour later he pulled back into the bait shop and picked up a few more minnows. They had gone out to Gull and had their limit of 15-16 inchers then the group wanted to go bass fishing. I don't think it can get much better than that. Sure sounds like they had a good time. Hopefully it continues. We'll keep you posted.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action.

      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
