      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 .

Just wondering if anyone has been trolling Cranks for Eyes on Farm Lake in Ely.

I've been trolling cranks on Burntside for walleye or northern 4 times in the last 2 weeks.

Only one rotten bass, in 49 feet of water. mad.gif

I know they do well on Farm this time of the year. The reef out there is a good spot.

Yea about six weeks ago. Trolling reef runners on the west side of the lake. Various colors with no success. Discovered some interesting fishing spots working that part of the lake which were tried with live bait. The bay south of the boy scout camp had structure next to deep water. Fished that as we were marking fish on the graph. Nice sized perch but no walleye.

Maybe trolling Farm lake on a normal year.

Water is very high & water temps are higher than they should be due to the amount of water in the lakes.

Highest water levels I have ever seen in my life. shocked.gif

Kiss many docks goodbye next spring! frown.gif

Not much in the fall.

I only fish Burntside, and everything drops down to 40+feet when the water gets into the mid to upper 50's.

Bass, northern always caught in over 40, never caught a walleye later than September 20th, and that one was in 27 feet. Nice fish though, just shy of 10 lbs.

GO,

Sounds like alot of lakes are hot with the Fall bite right now...Vermillion, Kab/Nam, Rainy to name a few. Duluth area lakes seem to be slow, sounds like Ely lakes are also. How can the fishing be that different? these lakes are not that far apart.

Seems like anywhere there is current, people are doing okay. No whitefish in the currents yet, which chases out the walleye for some reason.

Not much action around here where there isn't any moving water.

You'll most likely never see another year like this in your lifetime (water temps this high this late, water this high in the fall, etc)

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
