      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 .

The St.James contest is 10 to 1. Last year the prizes were a grill for first place and fish finder for 2nd, i don't remeber 3rd or if you had to pay to get in the contest. I heard you can't use your house but i'm not sure.

In my house, I have never seen so many crappies and sunfish come through at one time. Anywhere from 50 to a 100 and thats no lie. If the crappies can grow at a decent rate, this lake will be unbelievable in a couple of years.

Sounds like it has a very promising future if it gets managed properly. Were there any nice fish caught?

Ya seriously!!! They pick the worst spot on the lake. If it would of been anywhere else on the lake. There would have been tons of fish caught.

What part of the lake do they have the tourney on then? Is it fenced off? No shack fishing?

Unfortunately I am up at BSU so I couldn't fish the hometown tourney or Mt. Lake. I was shocked to hear no fish caught in the St. James tourney. I had excellent luck out their all Christmas break and pulled in some really nice pannies, and a few crappies. Where were the boundaries of it? Im just a bit shocked!

I also agree with the Mt. Lake statements.... Its a fun lake and if people practice some good catch and release techniques, those crappies should get really nice. The panfish aren't huge yet but when I fished it I saw a few nicer ones that were at least 8" Hopefully the crappies which were about 7" - 8" can keep growing also!

They had the tournament area just in front of where the 3rd dock goes. From 4ft deep to 11ft deep. We had our camera down it that area earlier in the year and it was a dead sea there.

I was in the big white house, with the satellite dish on it. Had a black reg cab chevy by it, and a 4 door red colorado. We were close to the middle of the lake. Evertime a vehicle, snowmobile or 4 wheeler came by, they were gone. I honestly have never seen anything like it before. Next year, I am getting farther away from everybody. Those fish don't like the noise. I am thinking we were in 7 ft of water although I never did check it out. They would suck it in there mouth and spit it out, so if you didn't have a camera or were not looking down the hole you would never know it.

      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.
