      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 .

The Issue: Drastic change in water temperature, transitional 'eyes and unstable weather.

After a couple of dismal scouting trips, going into today's guide trip I wasn't sure what to expect other than some more head scratching. But, right away in the morning my spirits were quickly lifted when we started out dragging jigs and plastic in 8 - 10' of water and BAM! Not an 'eye but rather perch and sheephead. A few nice perch as a matter of fact but not enough to hold us in the area, so on we went. We made the move to shallow cover and we were immediately getting bit but could not connect. So, we slowed the boat to a crawl, tied on Northland Fireball jigs for the short shank, hooked the minnow into a headstand and BINGO. My client instantly connected with a healthy 15" 'eye for the box. Game on? Not so much. From there, it was small fish, so I opted for the trolling sticks. On our first pass, literally 45 seconds in, we got bit by a nice 'eye but it came unbuttoned about half way back to the boat. Good sign? Again, not so much, as far as trolling goes. We passed through the area for a good hour or so with nothing, so I told my client, "it's time to force it". We beared down and casted cranks the rest of our outing, which ended up being ~4 hours straight. And that's all it took to get the action going. #5 shallow Shad Raps in 4' of water were getting bit hard and often. Any cranks with a white belly was the ticket. The only problem is that we would have traded the quantity for quality as many of the fish were in that 13 - 14" range but still nice fillets for the pan if that's what a person was after. We just kept a few. smirk.gif I was actually quite surprised, with the conditions, that we were able to get some fish to go by going right after 'em.

The best is yet to come! I'm off to Brainerd this Thursday for 4 days on Gull but then I'll be back in the area until late October for a Mille Lacs run.

Saturday was "night and day" to Friday. Friday was about as tough as it gets. Amazing the difference in just 10 miles. smirk.gif I'll make the trip up to you before the snow flies.

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.
