      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.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
