      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 .

Do yellow labs keep the color of their noses?

Sorry i am used to huskys, their nose always turns a pinkish or a pink streak.. I did look a lot up about yellow labs for 2 years before i got Hunter and i read somewhere about pink noses are lacking pigmentation, so i been hoping his stays black lol

His looks like his nose is going to stay black. If people are looking for a yellow to be a show dog, the black nose is one of the things they will look for.

Lakers, Tom? Were you fishing lakers last year? I could've sworn that was a smelt you caught. Biggest darn smelt ever reported in Burntside, too, Must've been all of 9 inches. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Well, Kalli, it's a rare smelt on Burntside that gets to 9 inches these days. Most are from 3 to 5 because they're stunted. That makes Tom's 9-incher a bona fide Burntside trophy far less common than a 15-lb laker. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

It's alright. This is just how we start working up enthusiasm for the fabled Bash. Kinda like trash talk before Vikings/Packers games. Uh, Tom, are you a Vikings fan, by chance? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

C'mon Steve, set a date so we can book a whole motel this year! It also gives the wabbit time to prepare.

I need to top last years as well.

IMG_0765.jpg

I was talking to the misses just this week whether she wants to go up and catch more lakers. I think the one she caught last year on the first day got her intrigued.

IMG_0764.jpg

The second day got her cold.

As for B-side smelt, here's a nice 5"er

Steve ole boy, I use to be a Queen fan but the last few years its hard to even listen to them. As far as the lakers go, I'm sure my smallest laker would have maybe had a small treat at best eating yours and thats if you even get that lucky and snag one. Northlander showed me where to catch the big Girls but I didnt want to show you up my first year.

Sorry but this year I'm going for the jugler.

Gang, the bash already has been set for Jan. 26. Cheffrey, nice smelt! grin.gif

Harvey, I hope you have some great luck this year. The smelt are really thick. If you're relying on Northlander for laker advice and locations you're in trouble. grin.gifgrin.gif

Please feel free to e-mail me your GPS cords for the better spots anytime. Thats probably worth at least a couple beers at the Wabbit.

Thank you SIR.

I think I'm going to have to try to make it this infamous Burntside Bash! I'm not super knowledgeable on lakers tho-so start sharing the secrets Ok? I do have a couple airplane jigs??!! Kalli, I want to snuggle that little Hunter of yours! I guess I'll have to wait to January right?

Lisa, you sure can get by with standard medium walleye tackle and walleye-sized lures on Burntside for lakers.

Meanwhile, look here. And using the search feature for the many other threads on winter inland laker fishing over the last few years will gain you more knowledge yet, since we've been discussing this at some length for the past four or five winters or so. Lots of great info scattered around.

And, of course, there'll be more to come as the Bash approaches. grin.gif

Well, it sounds like this is quite a get together. Guess I'll have to put it on the calendar. You let Finlanders into the bash, right?

Ken, what would a winter laker Bash be without Finlanders? That's like trying to do a road trip without gassing up. grin.gif

Lisa.. Hunter would love that..

Ken, i am Scottish and German and they let me in LOL

Nice to have a few with you all. Just watch out for that pole in the parking lot at the Wabbit when backing up LOL

I just moved back to Ely, so i am lacking winter fishing things.. I spent the last 4 years in phz az at mayo clinic there, so i don't even have a winter coat yet...lol

But next year..i will be fishing and catching all the big lakers.. I have 10 years on that lake, and now i need to re learn that lake.. Think i might have time over the summer.

But i will be there cheering you all on, and teasing you on the small catches lol...

Kalli,Tami,Hunter's Mommy,Whatever name you go by these days wink.gif(you really need to post why you chose your name under EXPLAIN YOUR NAME),

I am getting really pumped to meet all you FM'ers. I met a couple last spring at the Swap in Saginaw but I was only there for a few minutes. Now I just have to get a couple of things at Gander. I have already started buying some ice jigs. I bought something I haven't seen before called a Tiger Eye-The Original Glowing Glass Jig-they should work great but probably not on Burntside.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff
    • MinnowBuckets
      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.
