      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 .

Fall Bite

Hi everyone, just wanted to give you all an update on whats going on here at the Pond. Walleye's have been tough to get in the boat but the ones that have been caught are shallow 4-17 FOW, with minnows and leeches on slips. Try Hennepin Island, Spider Reef, Upper Twin, the Knobs, and points with rocks, also try pulling cranks a night they should turn on soon. The perch bite is great, limits of 10-12inch fish are not uncommon, Isle Bay and Wahkon are good places to hit in 3-8 FOW with minnows or crawlers. Our ramp here at Hunter Winfield's is deep and well maintained so come on out and have fun.

Thanks for the updated report wallygater. I will be up for one day this weekend and hopefully I can report back with some good success. I will definitely be changing up my methods a bit this weekend. Good luck to all.

ShawnnyB and I were there last weekend and hooked into a 13" crappie with a rap and a 14" crappie with a 6" jointed rap. We were fishing for bass and norts.

Not sure if this helps you, tho

Well, the fishing was terrible again for me this weekend. Strictly fished for walleyes on saturday from noon until about 12:30 a.m. and managed to only catch one 14 in. walleye, a small pike, and a perch. All fish were caught trolling shad raps. Mille Lacs sure did beat me up these past couple weekends. If anyone out there is catching walleyes, I'd be real curious to hear what you are doing out there because we tried everything this past weekend with no success to show for it! Water temp was still up around 58 degrees....way too warm still.

Was up on the weekend for the Perch bite in Isle bay ended up catching some Perch (crappie minnows) and lots of Crappies and Sunfish (mini-mites no meat). We also landed a 26" walleye and watched the next boat land a 30 inch Pike. Got broke off with a large Smallie and fed a toothy critter a small perch as we brought it to the boat.

A friend also reported finding a large school of Walleyes in 6 FOW slip bobber fishing leeches on the point of a rock reef they caught 27 Walleyes in the 2 hours before sunset and then when the sun went under it just shut down.
