      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 fished Sunday from 9 am to about 4 pm with only one bite. The bait shop told us to start on the rocks with slip bobbers in about 12 feet of water so that's what we did but we weren't marking any fish. We started searching and tried several rock piles in anywhere from 10 to 20 feet, but nothing so we looked elsewhere and found a gravel bar that was holding a ton of fish. We stayed on that spot for the whole day throwing everything we had, and I finally had one slam a crawler harness, but I didn't hook up. We talked to a few guys at the landing and they had the same experience. I think the one guy said he was on Sloppy Joes and he picked up a few perch, but I didn't ask how big they were. I am guessing the rock pile bite is probably happening in the evening. That was our experience, hopefully yours will be different. Good luck.

Pretty much same results here. We were out yesterday from noon until 6pm. Managed one 11" perch in the south weedlines in about 4-5 foot of water.

We also were told about 8 to 12 foot water with slip bobbers. Had absolutely nothing at that depth. My guess is we were out at the wrong time of day. We are going out of Izatys, and we headed over to the south east area. We did mark a bunch of fish in the rocks at 13-18 foot of water. I am new to mille lacs, so do not know all the names of the areas. We fished the area we marked fish but had no luck. Probably an evening and morning bite I am thinking.

We are fishing in a 16ft Sweet 16 Tracker, so it is not really a big water boat. Makes me a little nervous when the waves come up! laugh.gif

We are here for the rest of the week, so if anybody has any tips for fishing the south end of the lake, it would be appreciated.

Thanks

Try shallower we had 3 with 1 keeper Sun btwn 10:00am & 1:00pm. Find the big rocks that come up to 2-4' below surface. 2 to big throw backs on rattling raps & 1-14 1/2" on bobber.

it is a VERY tough bite right now. we rented a pontoon on sun. from izaty's we ended up with 25 perch around 10 inches and about a dozen small walleyes only 3 were over 14 but were in the slot but we fished for 12 hours. found a very scatered bite on the rocks 4-12 ft, never got on any good schools of fish but had fun and Izaty's was great with the pontoon rental. We did hit a great pike bite on sat. on the N breakline got 5 over 35 inches and a 29.25 inch walleye at dusk-I really though it was 30 inch but still a nice fish. but overall a really tough bite. Just a great weekend to be out though.

The only thing the bait shops can tell you is what they heard (ie. rocks 8 to 12 feet). And since the bite sucks right now, I'm sure they're all saying the same thing. Have you ever heard a bait shop/resort say the bite sucks? No, it's usually something like, "Oh, it's kinda tough, but you should find some in the rocks in the evening."

SLOW SLOW SLOW!!!!! Marked fish almost everywhere but couldn't get them to bite. Marked em shallow and deep, and threw the whole tackle box at them but ended the day with a sun burn and two jumbos that took some work to hook. But the good news is I spent the day on Mille Lacs! cool.gif

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
