      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'm guessing this weather is gonna turn the bite off this weekend.

Recommended Posts

Early this week (Sun thru Wed) the weatherman was predicting stable weather thru Sunday. I was happy. Then out of nowhere we get hit with storms Thursday and Friday, followed by Sunny weather Saturday. (i.e., low pressure to high pressure system.)

Correct me if I am wrong, but what I desribed above is what usually turns the bite off, correct?

Well this weekend I have a once per year open water fishng trip to a small "private" lake where, weather permitting, the fishing is fast and furious.

My best guess is that our most effective presentation for the northerns and bucketmouths we will be targeting will be bobber style fishing rather that casting lures. That's how it was last year while we fished this lake in the rain and sun the next day. I threw lures all weekend, and my buddies used shiners under a bobber. They averaged 9 fish for the weekend, while I caught 3.

What does all this mean? Nothing. I am just disappointed in Mr. Weatherman. I was all fired up Wed night, only to be saying to myself Thursday morning "what the HE double hockey sticks is going on with the weather"?

I would try a variety of different presentations. Start with fast offerings and what worked in the past, and if that doesn't work, switch up to slower presentations. Maybe a good time to try some suspending Husky Jerks/Shad Raps, eh? Another technique that is known to work on finicky fish is drop-shotting. I haven't really had much sucess on this personally because I only recently started experimenting with it, but it's worth a try. Let us know how you do.

This system is being pushed by a warm front, so I don't think the bite will be affected due to weather. Sat and Sun are going to be warm and sunny so the sun may make the W's head for cover. The pike and the SMB will be on the lookout for a meal.

Go slow with a jig. Any color will work as long as it's Pumpkinseed. grin.gif

Normally I start out fast and if nothing slow down with jig and plastics.

Last time out on Lake X in the metro:

1 on topwater frog - lil guy but chubby. Did I just say that? and the rest (all 3 more) on a lil jig. However, 1 was 19 1/4" and the other's were lil guys too. 4 hours and 4 fish - missed a nice one to. Not too shabby with that big fish.

On Saturday my buddy and I drove up to Vermillion for the day. Bright sunny day with windy (20 MPH) conditions. Vermillion had some rough conditons with the weather system that moved through. We got started about 8:00 am choosing a usually good spot off a main channel island in Frazier Bay. Tried deep water (30) and found nothing until we move up to 15 feet. They found fish all over the place. Continually caught W's till the bite quit about 2:30. We took two limits of 16 inchers. We were fishing jigs and minnows slow and verticle. This is the same spot and depth my buddy fished a week ago with the same results. I guess there was no effect caused by the weather.

Here's my report for a small private lake north of Brainerd.

I concur the weather did not affect the bit. We fished from 11 am to 7 pm saturday, with the bite really turing on an hour before dusk.

I'll have to remember that warm fronts do not have the same effect as cold fronts.

      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.
