      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 was out today.

I found a 29" Northern in 12fow.

I spent 2hours on the water to get it and a 26" Bowfin.

We went to another lake and hit the Large Mouth Bass.

That is just 2 of 18 that Tom M. and I boated. 7 were over 17" and one was close to 20" All but one Bass were cought in less than 1.5fow! Most of them were within 10' from shore! If you got the bait in the strike zone they would, well, strike. I don't think it mattered what it was they would strike.

Look for trees in the water and shadows in the water. This time of year that means, SOUTHSIDE.

As for White Bass, look for them chasing bait fish in currant areas near deeper water late in the day 5PM till sun set. If you see a ripple on the surface throw a 2 1/2"-3" jig right into it.

Looks like you gents had a beautiful day on the water and the fish gods treated you well.

I got to go shopping and not for fun things like outdoor gear. Some days one needs to do the family scene.

Oh well, look out next week baby.

Caught bass today, too. Didn't get any over 20" and that means nothing too nice. We started walleye fishing following the rumor mill which didn't produce for us. Switched lakes. The bass weren't jumping in the boat, but we managed about 15 in 3 hours. Biggest was close to 4#. They sucked in the jigs and didn't move much... till the hookset, then they really fought. Largies on steriods this time of year.

Is the Cannon Lake Bridge the bridge seperating the two lakes or are there other bridges around there because I fished there 3-4 times this past spring and summer and only caught small bass and a large bowfin.?

went to sheilds sat. AM (1 small perch), then to madison in th PM (wife had a northern close to the boat, id say about a 10 pounder and I had the ultimate in luck! my first carp!!! id say close to 15 pounds!). im thinking about changing my name on FM to something closer to the way things have been going as of late...ie carp boy, fisherman wannabe, well you know. its not that its been totally bad, but just cant seem to find any type of pattern to catch more than 1 at any time. oh well, its still better than work!

A 15lb fish is a 15lb fish. I don't see a bit of bad luck there. Good job at getting it to the boat. Carp have a fight in them that few fish can match. Not great speed but alot of power. I would rather catch a 15lb carp than 18" Walleye. I would throw both back also.

      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.
    • mrpike1973
      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. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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!
    • seifjr
      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"
