      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 .

Advice for west side this weekend?

Recommended Posts

I'll be heading up thursday afternoon. We're staying at McQuiod's starting on friday afternoon, but a couple of us are going up early to fish thursday night/friday morning.

We're staying at the casino that night. Any suggestions on the west side? I was looking at the map and Shermans flat looks close. Any suggestions on resorts we could buy a road pass to get out there?

Thanks in advance!

Tony

Tony Someone told me earlier on this post that Terrys boat harbor has a road out to curlys and shermans which are very close to each other. We usually head up late in the season to fish shermans. Last year with no snow you could drive everywhere but when there is a lot of snow like now you might need a 4x4 to get off the road. If you have a GPS with a lakemaster chip in it look for tight depth lines on both of these flats and keep away from others and you should pick up some eyes and maybe some jumbos . Give us a report from your trip. Maybe this side of the lake is having a better bite. Terrys is located on the casino road but real close to garrison. If they havent changed from last year it is a ten dollar pass but probably they have bumped it up a little bit this year. Have a great trip and catch some fish!

Thanks for the response. I will call Terry's. I've got an Envoy with 4wd. We're not too adventurous and probably won't wander off the road any further than I can drag my portable. I do have a lakemaster chip in my gps, so we'll give that a shot. And, of course, I'll post a report. Hopefully it will be positive!

Twin Pines and Terry's have a road all the way out to the 8 mile and Sequichie's Flat. We were up there Friday until Saturday a.m. and fished the outer 8 mile and never got a bite. We were on a prime spot that we have fished every winter and summer but nothing was biting.

If you plan on venturing off the roads at all I would recommend chains on your trucks. We had a Toyota 4 wheeler and a Jeep and we were stuck more times than we can count. A lot of slush out there also. Hard to believe the slush with all the cold weather we had over the last week.

Good Luck...

We were at Twin Pines Friday night through Sunday morning and had two fish. Both were Walleyes one small and one 26 inches long. We were in the first row of there rented houses ~ maybe a mile from shore. Good luck to you.

we were in the 2nd row of rentals out of Twin Pines this weekend and didnt get a thing.

Had a camera and only saw a few very small perch. No walleyes at all. Saw good sized Northern off in the distance but nothing else.

Looks like you might have better odds in the casino from the reports coming off the lake!!!

Never go to the casino! No serious fisherman would support such a place!

      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.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
