      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 .

Was up and fished the Red this past Thurs afternoon-Sun morning. We arrived later on Thursday and got a start just before 4 pm and caught 3 walleyes, no big ones, and a bunch of sauger - pulling cranks. Of course we heard you should have been here earlier in the day....

Friday we caught 10 walleye and a bunch of sauger again with the biggest greenie at 28.5" at 10 1/4 lbs.

Saturday we fished in some drizzle/light rain on and off in the afternoon and it was slower as we caught 5 walleye and a lot of sauger, biggest greenback was 27.5" weighing 9-13. We lost a big one close to the boat too on Sat. Never saw it but was a good head shaker thumper style if you know what I mean.

Sunday morning we saw clearing skies right away but that lasted only for half an hour and then clouded back up again. We ended up with four walleye and quite a few less sauger that morning. No big ones on Sunday. All walleye as well as the sauger were caught trolling for us. We didn't spend much time jigging.

We had four other boats that we knew up there and they all had fish in the 7-10+ lb range either trolling or jigging. Both seemed to work equally as well. Not big numbers of walleye this past weekend but a good time nonetheless. Two of the boats are staying up all this week. Just one pass or one jig away from a double digit fish always up there. One just never knows. Barney Gargles caps off a great day on the water.

Most of the walleye came in 10-11 ft. Sunday the water level had dropped a little (1 ft. maybe)which we were a little surprised at considering that Saturday we had NE winds. Woke up to Northerly winds on Sunday so we were thinking same or up some on the water levels. Did the opposite. Maybe Stu or a local can shed some light on that for us. Anyway, we had most of our success trolling using TD's of the usual colors. Sounds like the weather after today will be good for fishing up there.

Tight lines.

WG, sounds like the weather didn't help your cause any. Still, you managed to scrape up some nice fish and I know you well enough to be sure you had plenty of fun while up there. Next year maybe I'll be able to join you... crazy.gif

I am thinking a hard water trip is in order. We have IP man to get up there this year. He has yet to see a greenie this year too.

I'm with you 100%. However, I doubt it's in the cards for me until March. I'd love to do an early ice trip, but I'm sure I can't swing it. I think I'm stuck waiting until Spring for me. However, I think you should definitely take IP up there- he deserves a trip up with the fellas.

      I recently purchased a humminbird 688ci hd ice locator and it has GPS and the option for lake master chip. I'm going to drive to Cabela's to buy a chip  and was wondering the difference between the Lake Master Minnesota and the Minnesota Plus. Anyone have any experience with these and are they worth the money. Thanks.

      I haven’t checked backwaters since last weekend, but I checked the small lake this morning and it has just under 2 inches of ice.  McNally’s has been hit pretty hard for the last 2 weeks.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.
