      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 .

Garrison Report

The wife and I rented from Garrison Sports and stayed overnight on Thursday despite not so good fish reports. The wife landed a nice 26" walleye on a buckshot rattle at 9pm. This was her largest walleye by far and her excitement was fun to see. At 10pm I landed a 24" walleye on a rainbow minnow/rattle wheel. We missed several others on rattle wheels thru the nite but had a good time.

The reason I rent thru Kari at Garrison Sports is he doesn't give me any b.s. on how the fishing bite is.

The wife had a blast and I know I'll be going back to rent from him again in the future.

I was up this week. on weds night it was cold enough that a couple cracks opened up. one looked to be just west of Garrison Reef, and the other was further out. Call Kari at Garrison sports and he'll know if they healed up yet. he's still not pulling houses past the first break as of thursday...

Me, too...do a lot of the Brainerd Tourney people head to Mille Lacs before/after? Will it be insanely busy?

Will be calling G Sports to get an update later today...

Just returned from 4 days of fishing with no success to report minus the ice is starting to shape up real good! Wednesday found 11-14 inches off the roads, and the last hole I drilled on Sunday I measured 18. Not sure of how far Kari had road out on the nw side, but if your looking to get on mud, Barnacles along with Myr Mar both have some roads open to the mud. I have used both and would recommend Barnacles to anyone! They definetly had put some miles on there plow trucks this year, and have alot of snow moved! Wish I had a positive report of the fishing, but do not...Baby perch constantly floatin up in the holes, many eye's and some nice perch on camera but not takers!

whats up with Mille Lacs this year? We usually head up there every year (annual thing) but this year we are planning to go elsewhere do to poor reports. I know resorts depend on fishing along with other winter sports financially but it must hurt a little when the bite is poor. The last couple years we have been mislead that the bite was good until we were there. Then everyone we talked to was saying how slow it has been. Like fisherking32 said, he goes with the one that doesnt feed him a line of [PoorWordUsage]. Too bad there are some on here that are here strictly for financial reasons. To follow that up, there are definately a lot of posters who will straight shoot you too. Gotta love the pond when its hot though!!!

if you want the real truth on how the bite is call Jay at wilderness warmth,he will give it to straight because he is also a fisherman who also doesnt like B.S. about fishing reports.if its slow he will tell you it's slow.good luck and let's hope the bite picks up.

Of course everyone goes to Mille Lacs for the fishing, but one thing to remember is there are plenty of other things to keep both the boys and girls busy if the fish are not so cooperative! Depeneding on what side of the lake your on, there seems to always be some sort of live music at most any of the resorts or bars on any given weekend nite. There are 100's of miles of groomed snowmobile trails at your finger tips! Pick a direction and go! Heck if your into that thing, I would even recomnend taking a tour of the Native American Musuem they got there on the sw side! Looks intresting from the road, prolly even more so on the inside? I dont support tribe run casino's but once again that seems to be a place that gathers quite a few people! I've even found myself out on a back country road just out for a cruise trying to spot wildlife! Lets all face it, the entire lake area is a sportsman paradise! If you dont think so, then my question to you is what are you doing there? My experience of Mille Lacs is like life, it has its ups and its downs!

See ya on the ice!

      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. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
