      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 .

Hey guys,

coming up the second week of june. going to keep the kids busy with some daytime pannies. love to get into perch, gills, but what's the story with cass on crappies? generally in mid-june, have they left for deeper water already, should we look to kitchi? our previous lake, we would catch crappie in a portage lake in 35+ fow. as always, i appreciate the feedback.

Windy, the cubbies will be stout this year too. should be an interesting year in chi-town.

Many times there will still be some late spawning crappie still hanging in the shallows or just off the edge. Kitchi is a great lake to look for them in. I don't fish it much for crappie but know a lot of folks that do quite well. On Cass the SW corner and Allen's Bay are your best bet. Andrusia is great for crappie too. Near Joes Lodge and the bay on the North end of the lake.

Good luck

Buck Lake is awesome for big Sunfish and rockbass.Also if your lucky fish the docks on the south side of Buck you'll find a few crappies but look out for the owners of the docks,they think they own the lake.the docks also hold the big 10" sunfish.Just my 2 bits.Good luck.

I think I said this on another post, if your catching and know where to go for 10" gills on a certain lake why would you post it on a fishing forum?

Just my two cents worth!

You can get into Buck lake via the channel that connects to Cass. You shouldn't have any problems getting through that time of year. Just trim up the outboard and take it slow.

The only access that I know of on Lost lake is the right-of-way access off of mission road. Might be a little tough getting a boat in there.

Brian,

Make a mental note to tell me about Lost as well. Deb is staying at Horseshoe this year and I plan on maybe renting a boat from Clark for a day to hit Lost. He has that $40 special for 8 hours including the gas and you know what big spenders us boys from the Windy are!!! Hope all is going well down on the farm! Hope the little one is doing well in school.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
