      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 .

BLUEBILL,

FLK AND I PLAN ON GOING SATURDAY A.M IN SEARCH OF A FEW DIVERS. ARE THERE RESPECTABLE NUMBERS AROUND YET? I THOUGHTI SEEN A FEW FLOCKS OF RINGS LAST WEEKEND AND FOR SURE 3 REDHEADS THAT FLARED AT THE LAST SECOND. I BET I HAVEN'T HUNTED WATERFOWL IN ABOUT 10 YEARS BUT LOVE TO SHOOT DIVERS OVER OPENWATER. I KNOW HE HAS NEVER DONE IT . AND THAT IS PULLING ME BACK INTO THE SPORT. IT SICKENS ME TO THINK OF WHAT I SOLD ALL MY GEAR FOR AND HOW LONG IT TOOK ME TO BUILD IT UP. NOW I WAN'T TO GET BACK IN AND IT'LL COST ME A FORTUNE TO GET BACK TO WHERE I WAS. I NO LONGER OWN A GUN LARGER THAN 20 GA. SO IT WILL BE CHALLENGING TO SHOOT A 20 OVER DECOYS. PROBALLY GONNA GO GLASS A FEW LAKES AFTER WORK TOMORROW.

bluebill,

thanks for the info, went scouting friday saw a few and set up in the area saturday a.m, seen lots birds, but few would decoy, they would pass 2 or three times before landing in the middle of the lake. First duck was taken at about 8:30, a good hour and a half of constant action just out past the deaks before anything committed.

my party of three ended up with 4 BILLS 2 REDHEADSon saturday (pic in waterfowl photo thread) 1 CAN & a GADWALL on Sunday . I will likley try again this weekend.

may have to take you up on that , the boat I used this weekend was borrowed from a good friend. as foolish as it was, I sold my waterfowl rig about 10 years ago for a high performance bass rig. at a price that almost makes we queezy. Now I think how long it will take me to build it up again. and it's a little discouraging confused.gif

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

We travel with portable ice huts to keep us mobile and on top of fish.  Water will be available through the lake but there will be no running water for showers. The fishing has been outstanding all summer long so why not extend it year round. Main species in the lake are walleye, northern, white fish, and some perch. There has been numerous 26"-30" walleye's caught on a weekly basis through out the summer. This camp and lake have been private up until this past summer. 90% of groups who came for the first time this year have already booked for next year. References are available.

For us the only thing that was working leadcore with cranks 18-24fow looks of eaters but not one over 18" couldn't get the digging raps rigs or jog and minnow to go but I'm sure it's not far off caught about half of mine on cranks when I was turning and didn't seem to matter weather the pole was on the inside or outside 2.2 2.4 was our speed flicker shads and deep runner raps #5 and 7. Cliff what style and size of hook do u use for your minnow rigs? Any beads used?

      This weekend near grand marais on thursday and Friday the no see ems were out. A few skeets but once it cooled down the no see ems were gone. Fished a lake that known for horrible bugs and it was not bad.

      That's correct.  For now.

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
