      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 .

How's Bablers road? Has the fishing been good by Gull or others, like 12mi or 16mi? Heading up on Friday, and just curious on road conditions and if we can pull off the road-way to set a permenant house up? Otherwise, we're thinking Long Point by the Islands.....and if the fishing there is any good? I would hate to bug RICHARD AS HE IS PROBABLY VERY BUSY GETTING HIS ROAD INTO SHAPE AGAIN! A big thank-you to all the resorts for making our trips up to the big pond easy on our 4x4 pick-ups! Also a big thanks to the fisherman ppl for pulling those out that get stuck!!! Gator

I was up to gull rock this past wkd...friday nite - monday noon..4 guys and 35 eye/saugers..all around 14-16 inches..prob 20 small guys or pouts...caught 8 really nice perch as well..all 12-14 inch monsters..30 ft water north of the rock along the old trail..i would say to stay to the east and get as deep as possible..glow in the dark worked real well and lots of fish on the dead stick..smaller ones seemed to like the jig this time..

Good Luck

Got back Sunday, only fished Sat. and had real good luck on glow in the dark jigs with shiners! Lots of dinks, but very nice huge perch, eyes and sauger mixed in, the biggest was 19" eye...and rest were all 15"-17"ers! Guys that set up next to us didn't get anything,N. of the rock..we were there 2 weeks ago and did fairly well, but this time was even better! Thanks gottajig!!

King, you are gonna have fun getting your house off of shore, its banked up pretty good, Bablers road is getting tall on the sides and not much room to pass or meet anyone, and thats before Sundays and Tuesdays' wind storms!! Lots of people shoveling to get off the lake!! Someone else might have a better update before this weekend??? Didn't hear of anyone stealing or messin around with houses up there. It looked like the wind over last week might have wrecked one guys house (door open and windows), blew some tin off the roof?? Good Luck!! Gator

Gator- Did Richard still have the road out to 16 mile? We're headed up there on thursday night, already have the ranger loaded but if I don't have to bring it I'd rather not. I'm going to call up there first but I'm just curious. Thanks!

      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!
    • Daniel Anderson
      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.
