      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 .

This is my first trip to Lake of the Woods and I had a blast. The Riverbend crew are awesome. The cabin I stayed in was very comfortable and most important they put me on fish. Weather ranged from -27 to +7 when I fished. I did real well on all three days mainly between 11:30 and 2:pm then after that it totally died. Best was a 25 inch real fat walleye and many Saugers with the average size of around 15 inches. Even nailed the largest perch I have ever seen. First day gold angle eyes was the go to lure with a back up red hook and bobber on the other line. Monday and Tuesday gold was not working and a pink and glo jig on a bobber worked non stop. The walleye was on a small red hook with4 lb test. The only reason I got it through the hole was its air sack was inflated and it broke my line in the hole and could not back down. It did swim away on its own after I took her picture. Thanks to everyone at Riverbend for taking care of me and I cant wait till next year.

eurolarva: Great report, sounds like you just might be hooked on a return trip 'eh? Nice fish, good pics. Were you fishing alone?

did you happen to have Richard as a guide when you were there? He does a great job as all of them do. We just have a thing going as we baja across the tundra to the different spots. Really glad you had a good time. Maybe we'll cross paths up there sometime. Bill

No guide and I was solo. They put me in house 19 and said it was hot the previous day. Had an awesome first day and decided to stay with the same house for the other two days. The guys that checked up on me said the other houses weren't doing so good. I saw lots of flashes in 12 ft on the LX5 however I could not in tise them with my lures. A couple of them were pretty big blips. I met wolfman up there. He was in a sleeper with Riverbend. I only spoke with him for a couple of minutes but seems like a really nice guy. I am a believer and plan on doing it again next year. Need someone to help with the camera. Hard to pose the shots with a timer. Again Riverbend really rocks!!

You're hooked for sure just like I was 8 years ago. It is an awesome place to spend some time alone or with friends. I would imagine you probably had a portable radio or something to maintain some sense of sanity? Bill

Nice to meet you too, eurolarva. My friend and I had good luck on Sunday, we caught three 14"-16" walleyes, and the sauger averaged about 15". We cooked a great meal in the sleeper and caught just enough on Monday to bring home a limit. grin.gif We each caught a perch with the biggest a 12"er. My friend also caught about a 5lb. pout. He had the guys at riverbend fillet it to take home to try it for the first time, I'm waiting too hear how he liked it. On a sad note, my truck engine blew about a mile from the sleeper so we had to call the resort to get a tow back to the resort, thanks Charlie. We ended up spending all day Tuesday at Riverbend waiting for a flatbed to come up from Bemidji. I found out Wed. the the engine is shot! mad.gif The good news, it's still under warranty so I'll get a new motor and just have to pay $100 deductable the Dodge dealer there said. Now I wait to return up North to retrieve my truck. They did give me a loaner through, so we at least got home again. Always an adventure when you break down on the border!

Good luck wolfman with the truck. As long as you are going back up you might as well fish. Then again that is probably about 90 miles one way out of the way.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
