      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 .

Hey guys,

Has anyone been targeting walleyes on Minnewaska lately? I am going up to my parent's place this weekend and am hoping to put my wife and I on a few fish. Just curious if anyone is having any success. Is the water still really low up there???

Thanks,

Nate

Waska hosted a tournament over the weekend, looks like they were hard to come by except for a few on the winning board. Good luck to you, the fish out to start biting again with this cooler weather!

Check out the forums and the winning boats pretty much tell you where they caught their fish.

Hey Nate. How is married life treating you? I fished the tourney and it was very sloooow. We got 3 3/4 inches of rain this week and it just about covered the tires on my dock!!!! As far as fish, I would follow your dad smile.gif.

Hey Waskawood!

I was hoping you would chime in. Sorry to hear it was slow for the tournament. Did you fish in it last year too? I heard that you guys got a little bit of rain. I think my dad and I are going to take the dock in this weekend. I hate to take my dad's fishing advice but it usually is pretty good...hopefully he can put the wife and I on some fish. I just bought a new GPS with a lakemast chip that I am itching to use.

Later,

Nate

PS...Married life is great so far! smile.gif Maybe I will see you on the water.

This was the first year that we fished the tournament. I am not a competitive type fisherman. My daughter wanted to try it so I went along. We had a good time despite the slow action. I will be around on Sunday. Stop by if you get a chance and say hello. Good luck fishing.

Had a long/great day on Waska but managed 9 fish between 15" and 17.5" jigs and fatheads/shiners, could have used them last weekend. Couple weeks before they should really start snapping. Caught lots of fish between 13" and 14.5" busy day.

Hey Waskawood,

Sorry I didn't get a chance to stop by on Sunday. We were busy taking the dock out and then I had to go down to Mankato and help my sister move. It was a busy day to say the least. We had some decent luck fishing. I caught a couple 15 inch walleyes and my wife caught the biggest one at about 18 inches. I also caught about a 5 pound northern that was a lot of fun to catch. I probably won't get up there again until November... Do you usually put your icehouse out in front of your place? I will definately have to stop by and say hi sometime.

Later,

Nate

Hey Jason,

Glad to hear you had some luck out there! It definately seems like they are starting to turn on.

Hi Nate,

I am happy to hear that the wife got a nice fish. I usually put the house out front or down in Bob's bay. I don't have a four wheeler so I usually have a guy from work set it out front so I can walk out. Once the ice is thick enough for my truck I move it around. Take care and have a nice fall.

Was up pulling docks and lifts Saturday in the heat. Those steel docks roll much easier in cooler weather, I swear.

Made it out on 'Waska for a few hours later in the afternoon. Got a few smallies and largemouth, and 1 lone walleye fishing the south shore across from Priest Pt. Went across to Priest Pt for the power hour with another dozen or so boats, and it was a bust. Few bites, but no fish in the boat for us.

      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

      That's correct.  For now.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!

      Any where from 12' to 30' humps. Bass and a few walleyes setting up on top and sides of these humps. Cliff
