      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 .

Only four posts in the past two weeks, the last coming five days ago. Did you guys stop fishing up there or what? Or maybe you're just fishing so much, you can't get to your computers. Anyway, I'll break the ice. No particular topic, just how's the fishing up there? We vacation a week every year in June on Clitherall, but I'm always interested how things are going on any lake. Here's a question: I'm thinking about adding a family trip in the late summer to my usual itinerary of going just with "the boys" in June for our annual week of great fishing, beer drinking, and wonderful deep-fried and grilled food. Is the weather cooling off any there say around the middle of August, or is it still blazing hot? Don't want to roast in a hot cabin but have to come before school starts. Also, how's fishing around mid-August? Thanks guys.

It's dead during the day! 17 hours in my boat in 2 days with little to show for it all. I fished a tourney on OT Sat. and Sunday just fishing another area lake. Major algae bloom on some lakes because of the dead still, hot, cloudless weather. I've heard of major (pan)fish kills on a couple area lakes due to the weather.

We need cooler weather and wind!

Walleyes are hanging on their mid-lake structure and it's a feeding frenzy at night. The eyes are laying belly to the bottom during the day. Just another couple weeks and things will be picking up again.

Hey guys I've been up on lake of the woods playing for the past few days.. The no wind thing was welcomed over the weekend for me! lolol We caught some pretty decent fish on the rockpiles out from warroad. Sunday I was out with Curt Quesnell and we fished WAaayyyy out there, trolling crankbaits on downriggers, that was alot of fun, lots of fish in 30+ ft of water out in no mans land. Just from my observations they were taking cover under a very large cloud of algae bloom, looking for shade and an easy meal..Ottertail now seems so small. I'm looking forward to fall. Paul

Paul,

I talked to Shano on Monday and they were
running the riggers halfway down all day
Sunday.

I need to spend about 3 good long days out
pullin plugs with a detail man like you.
I think there are many secrets to be learned.

Thank goodness the wind laid down for us,
wind or no wind doesnt seem to affect the
deep fish as much.

A great weekend of fishing even if it meant
the demise of my two favorite spinner rods.

Curt

Hey Curty!
That would explain why he was letting so much line out behind his ball..Use the precision trolling handbook and consider your ball your rod tip and run your baits and balls accordingly. Those walker releases are a pretty slick deal. just the ticket for what we were doing. The cannon releases are just way too touchy for what I do. The off shore tackle releases might work but the walkers are the clear ticket in my book. Keep your nose to the grindstone and you should be able to blow shano out of the water. I think I might have a trick or two up my sleeve :-) heheh Good fishin!! Paul

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
