      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 talked to a buddy who was out and did not have very good luck on Big C. He said he caught a bunch of snot rockets and that was about it.

Now there's a surprise. Sounds like just about everytime I've been on that lake, except you didn't mention all the flippin' rock bass. By the way, I am wondering if the Cormorant Classic is this weekend? Lots and lots of boats out there on my way to work last two mornings. Hopefully they'll get better weather than last year's tourney! It will be interesting to see the reports from the tourney.

Hiya -

So, guys that walleye fish in Cormorant, do you catch a lot of pike? Been meaning to ask... I fish smallies out there a lot, and I think I've caught one pike this summer out there. I'm mostly on rocks so maybe just that they're not there, but I've been surprised at how few I catch. Same with rock bass really. Catch them mixed in with the smallies on some other lakes I fish on, but I get very few on Cormorant...

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Split my summer between Lizzie and Big Cormorant. I did get some nice northerns early, up to 8lbs on Big C. Mid summer I took some minnows out to one of the rock piles and got a bunch of northerns but they ran quite a bit smaller. rock bass haven't been a problem for me.

I haven't seen an issue with pike, but I have caught a lot of rocco's which is normal. I fish a little deeper in the summer and the pike tend to be closer to weeds. A lot of night trolling as well, and obviously no pike then. Haven't fished in 2+ weeks frown.gif.

I never thought it was an issue either until I switched over to shiners this fall and fished some wind blown weedlines earlier this week. It was insane...had many complete bite offs with fireline and still put probably a dozen of the them in the boat (but not for long). grin.gif

Been super busy with work, and late August-mid Sept. is probably my least favorite time to fish. The Fall transition period while I wait til the water hits the mid 50's. I'll be getting out more in the next 4-6 weeks and then it's ice fishing shocked.gif.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Been out chasing crappies again in the DL area..been a while...finding some nice ones in mouth of a river...pic of a couple

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
