      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 .

Has anyone been driving on Boulder yet? Without a sled or wheeler, the usual fishing holes are way to far to walk to. By the way, if anyone knows of a good used wheeler let me know. Thanks, FMers.

PikePatroller,

Your time would be spend better on any lake you choose. You're just one set of holes away from your new found honey hole. I don't make a habbit to fish Boulder just because of it's distance out. If you know the lake and are willing to go looking. You never know what you might find.

Better time spent on Fish lake? Possible but with that comes larger groups of people and all that has to offer.

Good luck on your choice of lakes. What ever you do stay warm!!!

Some friends and I found the elephants graveyard of crappies on boulder. They were big, dumb, and biting! Toss in a couple of suicidal walleyes in the 15-16 inch range and a handful of jumbo perch, and one crazy bonafide 10 inch gill, and we had the makings of a great trip. We were someplace in the west basin in 14-15 fow, and all of our fish came on small buckshot rattles (in gold/orange) tipped with nothing but a minnow head. This worked much better than a whole minnow. The cold snap was great for keeping all the other undesirable competition off of the ice! On all other details I have been pledged to silence under pain of death. Good Luck!!

i don't remember the name of the resort i paid to launch my boat through last summer. does anyone know if the road is plowed out to this one and only resort?? i would guess this would bring you closer to "the honey holes", instead of the public access.

can you access there??

Is anyone driving out onto Boulder? With the cold weather it would seem that slush should have frozen over and the ice should be thick enough. I don't want to be the first, so would appreciate knowing if trucks have been out yet. Thanks!

troyslund,

My guess is the Silver Fox for the resort you're talking about. I thought I was told one time that they don't offer access during the hard water season. I may be wrong about the access but I'm sure someone on the site will know the answer.

They only allow foot, atv, and snowmobile. As far as I know no driving out from sliver fox. Probally have to use public access.

troyslund-

i would also guess you're talking about silver fox resort. i launched out from it a few times earlier this winter, for a small fee, so i would guess it was still open.

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      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.

      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.

      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
