      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 .

:hello: Hi there! I am looking for tips/advice from other fisherpeople of MN. I am fishing my first tournament ever this weekend. It is the Fishing for Ducks on MilleLacs.. I am desperate for any info as I'm very green with Millelacs, I have only fished 2x this year due to new baby and work so I don't forsee myself catching anything.

 

The tourney is inside the Garrison Bay and I am gonna be there at 6:30/7 am to try to beat people there for the far holes. (Only advice I've gotten so far)

 

What type of bait do you recommend? Any secrets? If I win I'll get you a nice steak dinner ;) 

Thank you and God Bless :grin:

Catch a pout

As in any contest, I also try to get outside of the crowd and like to set up over deeper water. Mostly because I think the commotion on the ice spooks fish. Above all, go out with an attitude you already have, and if it's meant be, it's meant to be. Just go fishing, and have fun. Lately Mille lacs has been pumping out some nice daytime walleyes, so keep that in mind with your presentation. Call fish in with an aggressive bait such as the smallest size Rippin' Rap, Buckshot Rattle Spoon, or Swedish Pimple with a minnow head. Have a second rod baited up with a medium sized rainbow minnow or fathead minnow, hooked under the dorsal fin with a plain red hook. Another great option is to tail hook a minnow with a small jig like a Rat Finkie under a float ready to drop down to any negative, or neutral fish. This tactic has put many fish on the ice for me. My guess is there will be far more walleye, perch, and tullies weighed then pout during the contest this year.

 

Congrats on the new baby, Good Luck, and God Bless you too.

The winner will be someone who hangs a large minnow under a bobber and lets it sit. I can see a lot of people aggressively jigging, watching the clock, and getting blanked.

Down size. Everyone fishes with big presentations trying for first place. I have placed in the top 5 twice using a small 1/8 Oz spoon tired with spikes. Just constantly fish while everyone drinks lol. I try to stay towards the edge of the zone to stay on fresh fish. Good luck.

I don't think you can access the fishing area until 9:00 AM, although getting there at 6:30 AM will get you a prime parking spot.

      Who's fishing the tourney this weekend?  The wind is supposed to be perfect for pitching jigs in the reeds.  I wish I was going to be in it.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that
    • delcecchi
      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      Told my wife I wanted to watch hooker....  she said " you aren't watching any hookers while I'm around"   rim shot.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
