      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 .

Area day house rentals?

Recommended Posts

I took my daughter to Waconia last year, and she had an absolute blast catching stunted pannies out of a rental house. However, the drive from Coon Rapids to Waconia it just too long for me. Are there any other places up in the Chisago/Rush area where I can rent a house for a day? She's still too young (in my opinion) to go out in the portable yet (she's only 5), but has been begging me to take her out again.

Thanks in advance for your advice!

You could also talk to Rich at Mike's Bait on hwy 8. He was renting out his nice wheel house last winter...he puts it out and has it on fish...ready to go. Last year it was on Green lake near Chisago city.

Pharcta2 - I have a 6x10 permanent house out on Chisago. I don't mind letting you use it for a day sometime. Post your email address if you are interested. I also have small kids so I try and keep it in an area where there is action.

I would have no problem, but all permanent houses must be off by the end of the month. Mine is going off today or tomorrow. Sorry.

Pharcta, being 5, your lil girl is probably plenty old to head out in the porty, but I guess that depends on what you have for a portable and how quickly she loses her attention span. Even better, with the warmer weather we are having, bring her out on the open ice without having a shack before the ice starts to fade away. We had a ton of kids out for the first annual Baby FMers Get Together last Saturday and not one person flipped the lid on a portable the whole time out there. Every single kid caught fish too. If you want directions to a spot to put her on some panfish, let me know.

      Here is the latest....it is changing quite a bit and the water is cooling off.  Check it out while you make your plan for Labor Day

      I have a few spots that I check but if you just go slow and keep your eye on the depth finder the schools of fish are scattered everywhere.  If you see fish, you will catch em

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?

      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.

      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.

      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day.
