      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 .

I am heading up Monday morning and am wondering if the Perch are still biting in the bays or if it has slowed down?

As of 3 o'clock today they were still biting. A slow start in the morning, but the bite seemed to pick up as the day went on. We left in the middle of the bite. Good luck to ya.

i put in at eddy's and started fishing around 5:30pm saturday. as i was putting in, two guys were just coming off with their limits of perch. i started trolling a firetiger deep diving rap in about 10fow and headed down to rocky reef. there was one boat bobber fishing there and a couple came by for muskies. i caught a 10-1/2" perch on a clown deepdiving shad and lost another perch right after that. i started north again and caught a 12" walleye on firetiger husky jerk in 6fow. a little later i caught a 17-1/2" on the same bait. that was it. i only fished until 10:40 before i headed back to eddy's. the forcast was for almost no wind. toward the end of the time i was out, there was plenty of rock-n-rollin' and it was DARK! i couldnt get a temperature reading unless you want to believe the -0.7 degrees farenheit the graph said. :-(

regards,

I hit Isle Bay and the reports I got on the way out were the the fishing was slow. We used the tiller electric to slow troll past all the bobber fisherman until we got to the opening of the bay to the main lake. We saw alot of small perch being caught and all using bobbers. We ended up using the tilled elecric to cast 1/16th jig/minnow from 6 into 2" with faster retrieve. We pulled 16 ranging from 10 to 13" in about two hours. The big perch wanted it faster. We planned to leave after the two hours to hit the walleyes so we thought to tell another boat what we were doing and where to go. Well they went to our spot, anchored but continued to bobber fish. We watched them bobber fish for about 15 minute and they continued catching the small perch in that same spot we pull all our bigger perch casting jigs. May have been just what they wanted that day but this was my only trip up there this year so this is all I can speak to. God luck. It's nice catching a perch so big you laugh at the size as you net the thing.

Fished west side rock piles Sat and did very well. Slip bobber with jig and real minnow, Gulp Alive minnows and power minnows. But the fave of the day was casting Mimic minnows - the jumbos just slammed them. Four to five feet of water. Action was constant to sundown.

Just wondering if anyone out there is educated on the parasite on the perch in mille lacs? I'm assuming it's not a big deal for consumption, but I'm just curious about it. I did some research and it looks like it's called heterosporis. Anyone have and 2 cents on this?

Are you asking about the little yellow grub or the black spots?

As far as I know both will be killed with cooking. I usually dig the yellow grubs out of the flesh. If there are alot of black spots I will throw out the fillet. The parasite that will cause problems is in Northern Pike and it can survive in pickled pike if it is not prepared properly. The pike must be frozen solid or cooked. Pickling does not kill the tape worm cyst found in Pike.

I'm pretty sure it is considered a new parasite in MN and WI. I read of the other two parasites that you are talking about. I believe this one is different. I am guessing it's okay since I'm sure everyone else is taking home perch right now, but I was hoping someone could give me a little bit more of an insight on this.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!
