      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 .

Whats everyones game plan for the final weekend? Shallow, Deep, Weeds, Rock, Sand, Mud? Not quite sure what my plan is yet, would like to pick up a few eyes, or some pike.... I may head to a spot with my perm where I did well on the panfish lastyear this time, also a good spot for the bigger fish if running some tip-ups.. Its a small hole 10-15 ft with weeds nearby.... That lake seems to have quieted down, not nearly as many people on it as there were when the crappies were biting real good. Hopefully theres a bite heating up for this weekend. grin.gif Either way its time on the ice!! Good Luck All!

I have family coming down for the final weekend to flag fish. I have heard reports of good piking on east Jeff - but have never fished it. Any tips on locations out there?

My gameplan is to catch as many walleyes as possible...although it is much easier said than done! lol

Icehouseaddict: I think I know the area and lake you are talking about and I was considering a move there as well, but I'm not sure. I say go for it though, if it is the same lake and area I'm thinking about the possibilities are endless as to what you may catch!

And Welcome to FM! I am fairly new here as well!

Jaspernuts: The weed bed on the south bay of the lake seems to be where all of the spearing guys go. Otherwise the front bay right by the landing has a small hump in it that seems to attract the darkhouse crew as well.... I haven't had much luck on the slimers this year so I can't be much more help than that...

Thanks icehouse. I had a lake going good for pike but had 0 flags last weekend. Looking at the net counts - this lake definitely has them in there. We have only pickled 1 batch this year, need to get some this weekend!

My gameplan: Work deep on the inside turns and tips of points at the base of the breaks for walleyes. If nothing, move shallower. Then if nothing, come home and have a cold one! grin.gif

With the ice how thick it is and having only a hand auger I might be better off sitting on the ice with a 6 pack and not even fishing. I think I might just stay home with a 6 pack and wait for the thaw so I can drill a hole.

I think I will take the kids to a movie, spend some time with the wife and rest. Going to URL next week for 5 days of beer, more beer and maybe some fishing mixed in there somewhere. Good luck to all this weekend.

      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.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff
