      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 .

Recommended Posts

I was up on OT last weekend, fished Sat, Sun, and Mon. Caught perch until your hands fell off, took my girlfreind she didnt have to wait once for longer than 30 seconds to get a bite. Most of them were pretty small did manage about 15 over 10" but none that were 11". Not huge but no too bad for OT. Caught about 10 walleyes too, kept three of them the rest were fairly small. Dont know where to get the big ones. Anyway I am heading up again this weekend to fish all day Sat, and Sun. Anybody else gonna be around maybe we can locate some of those bigger eyes if we work together.

Sadly I haven't made it out on OT yet this year but I'll be up this weekend. I'll be fishing other area lakes most of the weekend but I'll most likely be on OT Sunday late morning/afternoon and possibly Saturday afternoon. I'll be in a black Grand Cherokee with a purple Otter. I'll probably be heading out of the Riviera access but who knows where I'll be fishing. Feel free to stop by and say hi...hopefully we can find some nice eyes!

Well I will be in either a Red Avalanche or a Red Ranger, with a X2. I do fish out of the Rivera access sometimes and if I dont get anything elsewhere maybe I will head that way. Im Adam by the way.

It was a pretty good weekend to end the walleye season on. I ended up getting my limit of Walleyes and my limit of Perch, not all from the same holes though. I drilled over 50 holes on Saturday, so I put in the effort to get the reward. I only had 3 or 4 perch late in the afternoon but I kept on trying til I hit the spot with bigger perch, then I found the Mother Load of 8-10 inchers.

How'd everyone else do?

We fished Sunday in the fog with about the same perch results and a few smallish eyes mixed in...Absolutely hammered nice tullibees for the smoker which was a blast on the light gear...We got three trucks stuck multiple times in the deep crusted snow...Wasted a good part of the midday period...We all got nice sunburns as well...Couldn't ask for a nicer day to end the season.

Didn't fish OT, but had a great time fishing eyes. The fish were aggressive and biting late into the morning with all the fog yesterday. Incredible weather! Afternoon wasted due to getting stuck and trying to get off the lake..

Did I miss much last evening jerky? sleep.gif

I fished Sunday afternoon for a few hours and got one a shade over 20 inches. I later dropped the camera down and saw 3 more swim by but I think they were scared of the camera. I also got stuck in the crusted snow once...it didn't help that I was pulling a trailer. It turned into another perfect day though. We couldn't have asked for much better of a weekend weather wise!

Tough bite this morning. Tried to [jerk-bait] some perch. Found perch, but they were ultra tiny. Fished anywhere from 30 fow up to 6. We'll try to get out again this weekend and try some different spots. Moving around wasn't impossible, but was a task with all of the hard packed snow. Drove over some drifts, but slugged through most of them with a full-sized truck.

Here's hoping warm weather is soon near to burn off some of the snow.

      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. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
