      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 .

The lake has been producing a lot of nice fish in spite of a giant fishfly hatch. The reefs and rock piles have had a lot of 8 pound plus fish hauled in and released. Buffalo bay (Can.) is doing well also.<P>------------------<BR><B>Old Guide Charters</B><BR>Lake of the Woods<BR><A HREF="http://fishingmn.com/oldguidecharters/" TARGET=_blank>http://fishingminnesota.com/oldguidecharters/</A><BR>Call Toll Free:1-800-952-(9484)

I'll be up late Friday night thru Monday and will plan on monitoring 82 along with Kaz. I answer to Ryan on the water but I'm debating on taking my Grandpa's old call sign for LOTW for sentimental reasons. <P>I'm planning on trying a little bit of everything. Rock piles if we can get out to them. Livebait off of Pine and out of the Gap. I'll probably use the downriggers during the middle of the day. To be honest I really haven't had any what I would call good fishing up their yet this year. It would be nice to get into some good fish one of these days. I'm hoping the weather will cooperate and stay stable. <P>I was out with my brother and a friend on Mille Lacs yesterday pulling crankbaits. We only caught one fish which we let our friend catch, but it was a nice one at 26 inches. His biggest fish so far. <P>Later, Ryan <BR>P.S. Three pictures and a kiss later she was released.

Does anyone know if the mayflys have finished hatching, are hatching now, or have yet to hatch around Kenora? I am headed up this weekend and was just curious. I have had some terrible luck in the past when they hatched.

I was checking the fishing report from Borderview and they stated that they felt that the mayfly hatch was done. I pasted in the statement at the end. Maybe one of the guys that lives up their has a better idea.<P>Excerpt from Borderview Lodge fishing report:<P>"By the way we no longer call them May Flies, they have been here in July the last two years. I think they are done for this year.<P>Get the net!"<P>Later, Ryan<P>

When I stopped at the Holiday station in Warroad 2 nights ago, there were so many fish fly's that they only had the pumps and the inside lights turned on.<P>------------------<BR>YOU CAN'T [PoorWordUsage] AN OLD [PoorWordUsage]'ER!

We fished the reefs out from Arnesen's Monday, there were still quite afew fly's floating on the water. We stopped at the Warroad Cenex station in the morning for gas and had to wipe off our shoes before reentering the pickup. The walleye were biting light, we had our best luck on crawlers and spinners.<p>[This message has been edited by Kingfisher (edited 07-21-2004).]

Thanks for the reply guys. Hopefully they have finished, but I'm just worried that they will be later on the far north end of Lake of the woods.<P>Oh well, we will be out on the water whether the fish are biting or not.

mark p, over the years I have caught a lot of walleye on LOW with lots & lots of flies on the water. You should do just fine.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!
