      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 .

northern fishing end of june

Recommended Posts

will be on kab june 28-july 5. will be primarily northern fishing. does anybody speed troll big safety pin spinner baits with any success?i have tried it on sandpoint and namakan on the canadian side and done really well.usually rip them right along in the top foot or so of water right along the weed bed edge. was wondering if some one had some ideas as to bays that have good weed beds that are close to deep water. i will be at pineaire but am willing to run as far east as hammer bay. every body i talk to at resorts up there says that most people fish walleye on kab and very few fish northern.i have fished kab a few times over the past 15 years so i know it reasonably well, but have always fished walleye. thanks in advance for any info

lucky enough

Anywhere I have ever gone in Canada and Northern Minnesota, I have always done the same thing for Northern Pike. Contstantly moving using my trolling motor, I cast towards the shoreline and retrieve over and over using Mepps Scycolps. Any color works, but the more the sun is out, the more those lures reflect and the more fish we catch. We fish every island, shoreline, whatever the whole time we are there. We stay at Deer Horn resort and we go the very first week in June. There are 4 of us in the boat and we limit out on Northerns every day. Never a problem. That early in the year there is not much in the way of green weeds. Everything is pretty much still brown. When we do find green weeds, we catch more Northerns in those areas. We eventually limit out on Walleye, but the problem is more about the size than anything. We caught some great 24-26" Walleye last year, but they all had to go back. Should be some major league tropheys coming in a few more years.

I have noticed the Northerns are a smaller in Kab. Biggest one we ever caught was 37" and we generally catch 26-30". They are good eaters, but I would like to see bigger.

I don't know if you have a radio in your boat, but another thing is that we always listen to music. If we are in an area where there are other people fishing, we will turn it down as not everyone likes it. Bob Marley and Jimmy Buffett have never hurt our fishing. And we are in the boat from sunup to sundown, so we like to be entertained.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
