      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 .

Anyone planning on heading up this weekend? I'm planning on going Saturday night and looking forward to the extra hour of fishing due to daylight savings time. Also looking forward to having a few less boats on the water.

I bought alot of Huskey jerk last weekend and was not able to get out and use it!

The boat is ready and I mite go out! I might give up deer hunting for another chance at Mille Lacs!

It should be pretty slow at the launches? I have plenty of venny for the next year and I know I will get plenty from others this year! Might as well save the hunting Lic. Fee's and use twords gas to the big pond!

I'll know later on this week what my plans are so you could call me before Friday if you'd like to find out whether or not I'll be up there.

The seminar went really well. Great discussion.

I have not been out to ML since July. Is there still a problem with shallow landings?

What is the best landing to go out of on the west side?

The public landings are low to, in some cases, not usable. If I was to pick the best public landing on the W side, I would say Pike Point, right in Garrison.

I ended up booking some guide trips down here for the weekend so I won't be making the trek North; at least not until Wednesday when I leave for Bambi camp.

Good luck to all this weekend. No reason it won't be a good one.

I'll give you a call tomorrow afternoon. I started to mark a lot of bait in our late season hot spot last weekend. Looks like the weather is going to be pretty good. I'm hoping for a better bite than we had last weekend. We'll have three guys in the boat tomorrow night which will allow us to try a lot of baits.

I wouldn't launch at a public ramp. Pay $10 at a private ramp. It makes things so much easier especially if the wind picks up. We launch at Terry's. Good depth and easy to find at 2 in the morning.

D, sounds great! Do you still have that doctored HJ that pulled our biggest fish last year on that unreal night? I have a doctored FT I call "bloody nose". It was a hot bait last Wed for a couple hours.

We will start up there with you but we are going to go searching for those pods of 27-30 inch sumos later in the night. We haven't picked up a 29 or better yet this fall, we are overdue. From what I've read and heard the fish still seem to be keying on small yoy perch but that may change tonight. wink.gif

Thanks for the tips on the landings guys. The wind will dictate if I go to the big pond or not with my 16'er. As nice as it is out right now it looks like I missed a good opportunity this morning.

I hope to make out there tonight.

Good luck this weekend.

      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

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!
