      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 .

I am supposed to be making my first trip down to Madison Lake tomorrow to meet my dad for a day of fishing. He is coming up from northern Iowa and I am coming down from Shakopee. He just called and was wondering if the 20 to 30 mph winds that are forecasted for tomorrow are going to impact us. He is not a big fan of battling the waves and what not. My thought is that Madison is small enough it won't get bad but I don't know for sure since I have never fished it. So will it be pretty rough if the wind does hit 30 mphs? Also, are most of the ramps pretty protected if the wind does get bad? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

There are Three landings on Madison. One will be out of the wind.

Regardless of direction, I would recommend either using the DNR landing South and East of The Narrows or Bray Park. As for fishing the wind out there, lots of places to "hide". Good luck!

Most people are not big fans of the wind but it can really turn on the walleyes on madison.

We decided to postpone the trip until tomorrow (Thursday). Hopefully we have goodluck. If we find some fish this could be a great lake for my dad and I to meet at. I am open for any pointers. We will most likely target crappies but wouldn't mind catching some walleye.

I was on Tetonka Tuesday morning. All I can say is that it was rough. The wind ran straight down the entire lake. There were 2 little boats hiding out of the wind behind McPete's point when I left at 10-10:30. I hope they waited until the afternoon when the wind dropped some. I loaded and the radio said the wind was gusting at 38 mph. No fish is worth not being safe.

There were 2-3 boats that dropped in and were fishing in front of the hatchery pier in Antl's bay. That was about the only spot out of the wind (and that wind was swirling) besides hiding by Cram's or McPete's.

When the wind is blowing as you said. Try fishing the edge of the chop at Willow point (just north of the landing). Big bass do use that drop off area when big waves are rolling over the shallow bar. The Norhterns will mainly use the slack water near the landing. So you will catch some Norhterns near Willow point but the Bass are there .

My dad and I met at about 8 ok and Reel Fish and Tackle and were on the water by 9. It was a great time, despite being hailed on. We are still learning when it comes to fishing but were able to still put ten nice sized crappies in the livewell while throwing a number back. We also caught a couple of perch along with a couple of blue gills. It was a ton of fun and I think we will be back.

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."
