      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 .

A funny thing happened on the way to a waypoint

On sunday I was making my rounds out on big beautiful and rainy ottertail lake. Not very far off of one of my regular sandbars sat an old beat up moss covered lindy marker. I made a pass around it and nobody had been there all day so I pulled it up. Here it was a marker that I had lost in july 1998, I had tied way too much weight on it (old car hood spring) and it failed to unwind sending it to the bottom. The best part of the whole deal is that it was on a bar that I had all but forgotten about. what are the odds of that happening more than once every twenty years? Life is good! Paul

Reminds me of an old saying involving the sun and a dog's butt getting shined on somehow, but I can't remember exactly how it goes...
The story would be complete if you could follow it up with a tale of how you absolutely knocked 'em on the "long lost bar".

Hey bud! hows it goin? still gettin them on the tail eh? Im thinking I just might try to get out on turtle, or labelle. This weather should work just about right im hopeing, Last time it was way to warm when I fished on Labelle, Hey What do you suggest i use on labelle and turtle? jig&minnow, lindy rig, spinners, etc? what do you think would be the dpeth to try on both of them. im guessing any where from 12-17ft on turtle and dont have the slightest about labelle. Man im shure i could probally catch some waldos now, i just need lights on my boat! lolol trailer lights dont work to well either lol. Well let me know whats happening and if you want to get together head out fishin somewhere sometime. Talk to yah later, and good luck guiding. Oh yah, Hows your kid doin?

Hey Slick!
Tail was a little slow last night,at least where I was. It's still a jig bite tho, I think that little cold front that blew through was partly to blame. Blue /glow scenic tackle jigs tipped with a shiner in 14 to 30 feet has been producing. Another deep bite is also occuring in 40 to 50 feet of water but I seldom fish that deep because the fish dont release very well. Hate to kill a bunch on little guys. I think you should keep after turtle lake, theres big ones to be caught is just a matter of timing. Jigemup! Paul

aquaman, welcome to fishingminnesota!
I'm not real local down there,I live an hour west. I spend 99% of my fishing time on ottertail, big pine, little pine, little macdonald, north lida and bad medicine lakes. My first walleye that I remember catching out of the tail was about 4 pounds back in 1971, just a youngin! lolol I have family roots in the area since the mid 50's so I suppose thats how I ended up with the fever, I think its genetic. Paul

An hour west would put you in the Dakotas? Yeah, it is a great area. My wife's family lived there for about 4 years while her Dad worked on the farms for M&O. Now her brother lives there and works for the same outfit. Small world in the end. He and I bought a cabin on the north end of Ottertail near the mouth of the river. I will be there this weekend, in fact. Looking for the eyes in the weeds I think.

Hey Paul, Saturday night was the ticket on Little Pine. Picked up probably 14-16 all around that 16-19" range. Fair again on Sunday and Monday (2nd and 3rd), but off a little from Saturday. Pretty much everything on perch Shad Raps. Also picked up a few on Big Pine during the day. That waypoint you gave me was exactly on the edge that I was talking about, I think we (I) just got crossed as to where was where.lolol Most fish up on top there in 9-11' and fire-tiger was the ticket.
It was good to see ya again. We'll have to hook up again next year.

Good fishin'..... Dave

      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.
    • CigarGuy
      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.
    • delcecchi
      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
