      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 .

Big Sandy Lake Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

berfish

We caught some nice smallies on a couple of rock points. We had never seen any caught in the lake until this past winter when a buddy got two through the ice. Then this spring I got one on walleye\Northern opener. Then we went out fishing for them and we got 5 in a two hour span. They were all pretty good sized at 14"-18". Anyone else fish for them out there?

I was up there two weekends ago at the federal campground, and was catching smallies out of the river (by the dam). Caught a nice 19.5". Also caught a few nice walleyes.

Was very windy on the lake, so we fished the dam for the most part. Finally got on the lake and caught walleyes, some crappies, and NO smallies.

I love those colors on that sunfish.

They are all males as the spawn is almost happening. Caught a few females and they are ready to burst.

Hit it again today.

That really sucks....A guy can't post anything anymore. I guess the figure, we can follow CK around and wipe out all the lakes he fishes. frownshocked

Ya know Tom I'd give up all of my spots if a guy would release these nice fish...but that ain't happening.

it also takes a bit of work to find them...then to have the spot fished out just like that....unreal.

Now I'm thinking to turn into a hider and if you want to hit some nice fish well a 300$ a day guide fee will be in order.

That's sad, because I know that there are some people that like your reports and pictures...I guess you can only show pics of the fish showing the bottom of your boat, and no background. Keep up the fishing though!!!

Looks like I'll have to vacuume the carpet now....LOL

Nothing in particular. Just seeing if anyones been doing any good. Hopefully ill be able come come up within the next week. But for sure for wild rice days. My granpa always has cars in the parade and car show. But i take it big sandy is the same old thing its always been; hit and miss and a really hard lake to fish unless your looking for small hammer handles. haha.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      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.
    • ANYFISH2
      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
    • Wanderer
      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.
