      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 .

desperate muskie angler!!

Recommended Posts

Sweating profusly...often finding myself staring out into the distance, visions of big muskie follows and violent strikes. I have muskie fever bad....and the only boat I have is at my cabin on the crow wing river and there's no trailer. If anyone ever has an open seat...weekday evenings...weekends..and need a fishing partner..I'm definitly available!!!! I"ve been a muskie angler for the better part of 8 years and a muskies Inc member for the past two. Got my own gear, plenty O' tackle...just need the means to go. I've reduced myself to begging....but whatever it takes right? It would be greatly appreciated.

Iron man,

I would be more than happy to bring you out. I just started fishing for muskies last year, and the thought of getting a big one on all alone in the boat evokes a bit of shocked.gif. I live in the west metro area, so I hope you don't mind fishing Tonka. I can't get out this week or next (next week I'm headed to Vermillion-Everett bay) But by July, when the walleye bite dies down and the muskies are good and mad, I should be ready to go. Mu boat isn't very big or pretty, but hey, it floats.

Shoot me your number...

lemurpeloo@comcast.net

And if you can give me a clue as how to fish 'em early on the big V, let me know.

Casey

Casey,

I was up to the big V last Thursday thru Sunday and fished muskies all day on the opener. No hook ups but the 2 follows we had were over cabbage. The cabbage piles are few and far between as we fished probably 20 spots which will hold cabbage in the summer but only 2 had visible cabbage Sat. Those been Muskego Bay and the channel between east & west by the set of 3 green/red bouy's. The northerns were active so you should at least have some action if you don't get into the skie's. Good Luck!

Hey thanks for the invites!! Hopefully something works out. I doned the waders today and went around Round Lake in Eden Prarie...no luck. Water is really up. On the big V muskies...look to your North facing bays...with the dark bottom and dont be afraid to go shallow...but stealth is the key. On sunny days they sun themselves...big plastics???? Good luck up there.

I'll be staying at Everett bay lodge, maybe the ski's will be in shallow, as you say, "sunning themselves". I don't have any plastics...yet. Would like to get a bulldawg, though.

Thanks for the tip.

Hey Ironman, if you want to go out some evening next week, shoot me an e-mail. wharrier@yahoo.com

As for the Big V. I was up there last week, before muskie opener. Saw one sunning herself on top of Merry Go Round.

The bulldog is a good bait..or so I hear..I dont own one. I'm thinking more of bass style plastics..only super sized. They offer quite a variety. Try something like a giant slug go..or lizard. Something you can work slow...s l o w....s l o w. If thats what it takes anyway...hopefully they'll hit whatever you throw...but that rarely happens.

      What did you and Wanderer find for ice thicknesses at the lakes you were on?
    • Rick G
      Sorry for no more live updates. Got too busy fishing...lol Pretty decent morning bite, slow afternoon, followed up by a very good evening bite. Plenty of noce fish caught if you worked for them. 
    • eyeguy 54
      fun day for sure.   good to see those that popped up. get that eye pic up rick! Thx Moose for starting us out in a good area and for lining it up.

      Looks like you had a better bite than I did. I really didn’t expect all my gear to be that bad hand pulling out.  Big time failure on my part to not bring my wheeler.  I have too much of a spearing Jones to have left it all back at the truck. I brought a few gills, a seed, a crappie and a 25 inch walleye home.  Biggest gill went 8.  I went through a half dozen heavy pike suckers on the tip up but never dropped the spear.  Only saw one 20 incher that never really got in the hole.  The walleye inhaled the sucker and got the hooks in the throat. Glad you guys got some nice ones!

      I found a new unopened Minnesota V6.0 on Craigslist for 75$ and it was only 2 miles from my house saved me a trip to Cabela's.

      I’m sure we will still be waiting for a bit for even walkable ice but hopefully people in the area can keep there eyes and ears open and let the rest of us know how the ice is and when it get here.
