      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 .

Man was it a cold day out there. Fishing was ok, managed 10 nice sized perch 3 bluegills and 1 crappie to bring home. If I would have tried I could have brought home more bluegills but wasnt really after them. I did see a number of good sized eyes on the cam but couldnt get them to bite. I was in 18fow. There are very few things in life that make me mad but seeing all of the trash that is on the ice that people dont pick up really makes me mad. I also passed a spot where someone caught 3 really nice crappies and just left them on the ice because they didnt feel like cleaning them. If we want this lake to keep producing people need to clean up after themselves and only keep what they will clean.

Yup, that really sucks people left fish out on the ice to rot. Its possible they forgot them somehow. Thanks for the fishing report. If everyone picks up something on their way off the ice it will be a lot cleaner. Unfortunately, there will always be those who won't pick up after themselves.

Hey fishingkid, what kind of camera do you use on east rush? I have an aqua view and it didnt work very well. How many fow does it work in, mabey I was too deep. Also does your camera work at night? mine doesnt work very well in low light conditions. Plus I was on west rush, mabey that was it. Is the water clarity that much better over there? This last wen. I caught my first ever walleye on west rush, it was a good eater at 16" and a blast to catch. I have really pounded on some great crappie & perch action on that lake before, but have never gotten any eyes. I go to mille lacs just because the camera works so well, but if it is usable on rush that is alot closer. Thanks for any info.

I bought my camera at Menards last year so its one of those off brands but it works great. If I had to guess how far I can see with the camera I would guess 10-15 feet away and I was in 18fow. At night its a whole different story 1-2 feet away depending on how clear the water. The DNR stocks both East and West with a lot of walleyes and there are some big ones in there. I would say every summer we catch 3 or 4 that are abotu 9lbs. when trolling with large sucker minnows for pike.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.
