      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 .

I ran into a guy who works at a sporting store which is a wharehouse in Sioux Falls and grew up on Traverse, he highly suggested I get there and fish it. I want to make it a priority this summer to get a better grip before I tackle it during hardwater season.

I have only fished Traverse a couple of times. Did well on the walleyes. The time we fished it was in May. Just watch out for the huge rocks just below the surface of the water. They come up fast.

I know they get some huge bluegills out of this lake also.

Really so do you think it would be a good idea to plan a trip early in the season or later cuz the season on that lake opens in April???

I always love ice out fishing!!! That is why I hit the river in Chamberlain, I have to wait til the first weekend in May otherwise to catch and keep a meal, but not much beats ice out fishing. To tell you the truth, I fish open water early and then again late, mid summer, I usually don't fish too much. That is when most of the family time comes in on the water, tubing and such.

Normally I have had the best luck fishing the first part of May thru June on the NE SD lakes.

I was at Traverse for a week in August '03, I only got one eye trolling but my buddy and I had no idea about the lake and what type of structure it had so we headed to a shallow weedy inlet and figured we'd cast for pike or whatever would bite. We landed a couple snakes and a 5 lb. largemouth and then my buddy hooked into something huge. He faught it for a good 15 min or so while i had the net in hand and the whole time I was thinking to myself that we needed a bigger net. Another 5 min of fighting the fish and then his drag starting messing up so hes trying to fix it while fighting this big fish. He managed to get it to within about 10 feet of the boat and I caught a glimpse of the tail and then bam my buddies daredevle came flying back at his face. We never found out what it was and we'll never know exactly how big it was but from what i can remember the tail was an orange color, and ever since i keep thinking it could have been a big gar but maybe some of you guys that have fished the lake more would have a better idea.

      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
