      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 .

Zipple Bay 22-24

Hey guys, me and a group of guys are headed up to Zipple this weekend and are looking for some ideas. We're gonna get to the lake tomorrow at around 2 and are wondering if we should go shallow or out deep? if shallow, how shallow because I've never used this tactic that you guys refer to so much. Also, my family has a permanent house set up at about 24 feet. Do you think it's worth fishing out of there are would it be a better idea to take the portables out deep during the day? Not to bombard with questions but my buddies are really big on using tip-ups. Are there any ideas where to set these up at zipple or is it just not late enough to use them there? Thanks for any ideas or suggestions in advance and good fishing to all of you!

well the shallow bite right now is pretty slow.that would be the best place to put up a tip up.i have my house out in 30ft and so far did well.i havent heard much from any 1 doing good at 24 ft but its worth a try no doubt.i diid have my house in 27ft 2 weeks ago and did really good.but i had to move it cause they were not going tobe plowing that road anymore.i would try that 24 ft when you get there.if nothin.then i would take the portables out deeper.but try that 24ft 1st.or you can even try the shallows since your going ot get there just before the shallow bite.you got lots of options there.im also headed up there at 4 am tomorrow mornin.should be there around 7:30 am.

Thanks for the info mnhunter! Ya I think we're gonna be moving around quite a bit on Saturday and Sunday especially with the nice weather (as i cross my fingers)...I guess I'm just kind of at a loss on what to do tomorrow afternoon when we get there especially because we won't have all day to "find" the fish.

I'll probably be in there too...If you see a group of 3 guys in a maroon Dodge Dakota pull up, don't hesitate to come and say hi. It's always nice to hear how many more fish the next house caught during a day right??

A friend of mine is up there using my sleeper house right now. The fish house was moved from 24.5ft off Sauger which only produced a few small perch the other day to 28ft off Hotspot which has produced decent fish. 7:30 the other night a 18in eye was caught 10ft off the bottom.

He texted me last night and said the bite was slower than the day before but they kept 8 15-18in eye's. By noon the bight was slow so guessing most of the keeperrs came after that.

The fish house took four man hours to unfreeze and it was on top of 6 6in blocks. We had the house moved out with 12in of ice and when moved had just over 20in. All the snow that piled up around the fish house made it sink. The ice was a couple inches up on both runners meaning it froze 8in on top of the ice!

Yesterday the fishing was good until by buddy left the sleeper fish house at noon. They caught 10 between 15-18 inches in that time. With three guys in the new spot they caught a total of 70 fish in a day in a half of fishing.

      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
