      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've heard the Perch are biting out on Julia. Anyone having any luck with the Northerns, Walleyes, or anything else? I'm heading up at the end of the month -- just curious what we might expect.

Thanks!

The perch on Julia are VERY wormy, and they're not biting like they were... They can still be had, along with some walleyes, and some slimers, but the bite has definitely slowed down.

Julia doesn't get a ton of pressure because most people don't keep fish out of the lake. I know I don't anymore, and probably won't ever again...

Hey matt why is it that you don't keep fish out of it anymore, just wondering because I have in the past?

I'm curious too??? My brother-in-law lives on the lake, so that's where we do our fishing in the Bemidji area...

They/we have had pretty good luck with Northerns last spring & early summer, and then Walleyes late summer and early fall. I do remember the Perch being wormy last summer now that you say that.

Any info on why you don't keep the fish from Julia would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I've kept perch quite a few times out there, hoping for good luck, and they're always wormy as heck. I quit keeping them. I got into some nice 'gills out there one day, kept 8-10, wormy. I had never seen 'gills wormy like that, green sunfish and pumpkinseeds yes, but not 'gills. I don't keep them out there anymore. Caught crappies that were mushy as heck. I've caught walleyes full of neascus, the tiny black dots, so full of it they felt like sandpaper. I think I have bad luck out there, so I won't keep anything from there again!

Walleyes and pike are about the best to eat from the lake in my opinion, but they don't taste as good as fish from other lakes. They taste muddy at times, and just not great overall. I have kept my fair share out there, and have had some good fish fry's with Julia walleyes, but I just quit due to bad luck and sick of picking out worms and looking at parasites.

I know others who feel the same, but I also know people who eat fish from Julia a lot and never complain.

It's a great place to get picture fish at times though! Nice perch, nice 'eyes, and even some good pannies at times. It's a fun little lake.

      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

      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.
