      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 .

Have a cabin on Irene and was heading up there to do a little fishing this weekend. Was planning on mostly fishing on Irene for eyes but was wondering if it was worth it to pop over to miltona and wanted to see if anyone had any reports. Was planning on rigging during the day and going out at night trolling cranks. Havent had much luck once it gets dark on irene so was wondering if anyone having any luck with cranks after dark on miltona. Wife and kids not coming this weekend so will be fishing pretty much from thrusday night through sunday

thanks

Caught several huge crappies on Miltona this last weekend. Many over a pound.

I don't like to "fish and tell", but them big crappies are sure fun to catch!

It sure would be nice to run into those. I havn't been out on Miltona for a few weeks now, but I do know that things have been pretty quiet around there. Obviously, quiet can mean one of two things (Really Good or Really Bad).

Hey Knute,

Are you saying the walleyes are at 50’ of water or the water depth is 50’?

Either way, at what depth were the fish hanging at.

I have found fish in 35’ – 40’ of water with the fish around the 20’ – 25’ foot range??

Mainly on the west end…

Went out to Miltona twice this weekend in the deep water 50 to 80 feet in the deep holes. Caught alot of fishing went through alot of minnows. we caught probably around 70 fish a day but its a little said that most of them are 10 inchers or smaller. you would catch 15 fish and then get out that is 15 inches or so pulled out one big fishing 26 inches. just wondering where the big fish are or if their jsut not biting yet?

Drake, think outside the box right now, we are catching big fish extremely shallow. Leave the deep and easy fish alone. If you need some more info, remember this summer when No meant No. Stop in and see Shane and I we are working Friday nite at the main.

One thing that I Notice that should be a huge concern for fisherman though is pulling the fish out of 38 feet of water or deeper a new STUDY says that anything deeper than 38 feet of water 70% of those fish die I was just informed by A well known fisherman. So fisherman look out of where your pulling those fish out from the big fish aren't always deep. and watch that depthfinder when you get below 38 feet start looking to go back up that bank. I know that I wont be fishing in anything deeper than 25 feet. Unless you dont want to be fishing for those marble eyes in 5 to 10 Years.

      I agree with del, used boats are more than adequate. I bought a 1990 Crestliner Sport for $5,100 in 2013. Did some floor and live well work, added co-pilot to the trolling motor, Vexilar SonarPhone connected to my iPad, and a tablet with the Navionics Boating App for GPS. Welded verses rivet hull was my desire. Tops out at 43 mph with 115hp merc 2 stroke. Handles the 4' Ottertail waves quite well. Picture of boat on Ottertail which I fish several times yearly along with other Ottertail County lakes and lakes closer to home I frequent often. At 73 its easy to launch / take-out. Look for a family owner, one that uses the boat once or twice a month the boat/motor will have limited hours of use on it. In my opinion the used boat is the only way to go.

      Here's a quote from the MinnKota digital onboard charge manual. "INLINE FUSE The output cord has an inline fuse on the RED end. The fuse serves as protection from surges and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with a 30 amp ATC 32V automotive fuse. Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the internal circuitry of the charger."

      That was my son cooking up my birthday dinner!  I'm older and have more grey hair (a lot more) than dark.  Be sure to say "hello-I'm Del"  if you see me!  Will be back up for a few extra days over Labor Day.

      There was a musky tourney last weekend, at spring bay.  Some club deal.   I think that might have contributed to the issue.   Normally I am one of few boats out on wakemup fishing walleye.   Like count on fingers of one hand.

      I've been fishing all my life, but I've only recently started seriously catfishing. I've discovered a spot near my home on the Minnesota river where the current comes to a still near a small, no longer active dam where there are rocks and tons of baitfish, which I assume should be a good spot for big flatheads. I've fished this spot a few days now and have only successfully pulled out a small flathead of maybe 5 or 6 pounds on a medium sized live sucker about a foot below a bobber. For your experienced catters, what's the best approach for big cats this time of year? Do you prefer live bait or cut bait? When using cut bait are heads or filets better? Since MN only allows one rod out should I be focusing my bait near the bottom of the river or a couple feet under a bobber? I tend to fish between 7pm-10pm although I'd like to try more late night fishing. Thanks for any suggestions!
