      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 .

Sit at the end of my dock and fire away!

They are around, but not as much in recent years.

Its usually pretty busy on my end of the lake for opener, in the reeds, and next to the muskrat/beaver home.

FLK, READ YOUR REGULATIONS BUD.

TAkING IN OPEN WATER

A person may not take migratory waterfowl, coots, or rails in open water unless

that person is:

a) within a natural growth of vegetation sufficient to partially conceal

the person or boat, or

B) pursuing or shooting wounded birds (while in compliance with the

watercraft restrictions listed below), or

c) on a river or stream that is not more than 100 yards in width.

I AM GUESSING THE END AF ONES DOCK DOES NOT QAULIFY AS NATURAL VEGATATION... crazy.gif

I'll throw a brush pile at the end of the dock. tongue.gif

But in all seriousness, there is public land, in the tall reeds 100 feet from me where guys sit, I'd assume if your out early enough, you would get a spot.

A few Mallards. And TONS of Geese. Lots of Turkeys too. I'd like to talk to the farmer that has the land on the corner of the street to go to french access and kelly access because of all the pheasants. I almost run them over daily.

I knew you were lying! I just played along...not really. I was just about 2 call you! Lucky, you think filling a goose shell with a can of "Great Stuff" would make it float? Thats what I'm tinkering with right now, any ideas?

Somehow, & after 7 cans, they float perfectly fine! Upright & all! My only concern now is that where I trimmed excess foam, that it'll suck up water...hope not frown.gif

Bunt, 1 more ?, I have a boat 2 use now & was wondering, if your on the access dock lookin strait ahead, then to the left all the way down if that is public, so in other words, if I'm not wrong, it would be the SW corner of kelly. Past the last house.

Stop on in after your hunt. Im the 2nd to last dock. With the yapping white husky's in my back yard. Im sure I'll be awake as soon as the sun rises with all the gun shots. I'll have coffee on.

I may dip my boat in Friday night, but I dont want it to get peppered with BB's...actually, might be a good idea to keep my dogs in Friday night also. smile.gif

Sounds good! I remember that dog from ice-fishing, it also had a little begal following him/her around. As soon as we would start grilling they would both be out there, eating hotdogs, ect. with us. grin.gif The huskie was named Shadow, & the begal was Sparky. Good times tongue.gif

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff

      Sorry, don't remember TJ Hooker.  Besides I make it a practice to avoid hookers....  (rim shot)

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
