      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

    • MrSchrute
      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!
    • walleyewalby
      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
      so went to go scope it out, 15 trucks on the northside, wheelers and houses out. Baxter is packed. last nights fresh snow is showing alot of active cracks too... i may wait a coujple days for blue and check out baxter instead.
    • Wicheesehead37
      Anyone know of the ice conditions in the oak narrows area?
    • blue gill hunter
      Has anyone heard of any ice reports on Big Marine?
    • dindunuffins
      I heard  6" or so around terrys..  id figure public access must be close to the same?
    • gimruis
      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
