      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 .

last open water trip

I am going up for the last time to blow out the lines and pull the boat. I plan to fish sat and then pull the boat when I am done. I had a very good season and am looking forward to a little hard water fishing over the winter. I have a couple of spots on Kab that I am determined to try this winter. Just because no one fishes there doesn't mean there are not any fish there...right? The old lake is gonna be turning over soon if it hasn't already. if it has then perhaps I will just pull the boat and head home early. Well just my thoughts on a slow day at work.

Isn't the fishing supposed to be better after turnover? I heard the fish go in shallow and strap on the feed-bag to get ready for winter. Have I been misinformed?

Wade I am now officially in fall work mode HEHE. Last weekend I got three keepers and threw back a few too big to keep. They told me that the fishing was really good wed and thurs but on sat I did just o.k. I split and stacked 3 long cord of oak on sunday and am looking at cleaning the chimney tonight. The house needs siding and there is about 400 yards of gravel I need to haul up at the lake. Wife wants me to do many smaller projects as well as making and putting up the trim around the windows in the living room. Won't be long and opener will be looking down my throat and I will be struggling with finishing up the list before summer. Oh I have to try to find some time to ice fish too??? tongue.gif

hehehe, a guy has to find time to fish, or he will loose his mind. At least I know I would.

I spent the weekend working on the siding. I want to go fishing, waaa waaa. I have to get the boat winterized and put away, maybe if it isn't sitting in the middle of the driveway hooked to the truck I wouldn't think about it so much. confused.gif

Seems like it was just a couple of weeks ago that I posted this thread. Now here I am, just as planned, struggling to finish up the winter projects before opener. I am already thinking about the boat and getting the lake place opened up. Already watching the pine air web cam once a day. never did get out on the kab ice to fish though...only snowmobiling.

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
