      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 .

Beautiful day on the water 10/13

What a great day to have been on the water and the fish bitting are a plus, first time in awhile I've boated over 15+ walleyes all but two were shorties, kept a 17, 16 caught quite a few stripes and a couple smallies. Seemed fish were bitting just about every place I tried, talked to a fellow by the prescott bridge area and he said the bite has been decent the last couple days, jig and fatties seem to do the trick, most of the fish he and his partner have been getting have came on 3/8 white jigs the ones I caught came on 3/8 gold ones, good luck out there!

Sounds like you had a good day.I took to the water this morning as well and spent the first 3hrs searching for crappie.Found some nice slabs here and there,usually not far from docks 14 to 16fow seem to be the depth they were hanging in.After that I started to troll the upstream side of east west running sand bars.After 8 passes with 8 hookups on nice eyes and saugers 16 to 20inches decided it to hang it up for the day.The fish were just stacked up on and just off the top of the bar,17 to 21fow were the depths,running bright colored shad raps.I had jigged this same spot earlier with no success,but a few hours later PAYDIRT laugh.gif.Im off to Canada friday night for 5 days of Hog hunting,good luck to you guys next weekend,the bite will just get better.........

Was out on Friday and Saturday evening.

Got out there by 7pm. Walleye bite got hot about 8:15pm to 8:45pm on Friday, then some other fishing party showed up with a bright propane light and everything got really quite, but I did mange to catch my one keeper an 18 inch walleye while they were there. Stayed till 11 pm.

Saturday got out there by 5 pm. evening walleye hot bite around 6:15 to 6:45 and did get on 15 inch walleye. Slow bite from there on..Stayed till 11 pm. Park ranger asked me about the other guys sturgeon fishing after they left. He also told be they guys fishing from the boat caught a 45 inch sturgeon. By the way thanks for giving me your bait. I tried for some crappies with the minnows, but not much action after they left. I should've left too, but oh well...I kept thinking maybe I'll get another big walleye...

I was on the St Croix for the first time this year on Saturday, and yes it was a great day to be on the water. Sunny, warm, light winds and the fish were biting! Picked up a scoop of fatheads at a new bait shop in Newport, headed to the Bluffs to launch, and by 0830 we were at Prescott dropping a jig with a lively fathead on it. We hung around there until about noon and put 6 in the box. Headed north, checked a couple spots and finished up at the Kinni narrows. We only added 1 more fish to the box; a nice fat, 17 inch walleye. Headed for the Bluffs about 3:30, it was truly a wonderful day to be outdoors enjoying a beautiful Fall day and fish to take home were a bonus!

I was out yesterday evening Bayport area and caught a couple Sturgeons unexpectantly! One was 14" the other was 28". I did manage to slip bob a few slabs then the light drizzle made it pretty cold. The only bait we used was fatheads.

      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.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"
