      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 .

Where was everyone this weekend? I had the smallish lake I fish to myself both days. After the quick limits on Saturday I couldn't believe it. Very nice, guess everyone stayed home.

BLB,
How was E. Battle..?

My dad and brother spent most of the time chasing crappies, with little to no success. they did mannage to catch two eye when chasing them.

I missed out due to a wedding I was in, but will be up there this weekend for sure.

If your out this weekend, I'll be in a smokercraft FAZER with a chocolate lab.

Was your place in the south basin, on the SE shore? I think you and I chatted several months ago.
Or are you the guy with a place where Woodland Park used to be?

We tried for crappies to start on E Battle.
We got one. Wow!
We ended up going after sunnies for a while, just to catch some fish, and we got some, but nothing worth writing home about. We kept 8 I think.

I am staying home this weekend. I gotta get some home stuff done, because bass opener will be taking up another 5 days of fishing.

C'mon Chuck you live up there now you should have it figured out. At least you should know better than to go to OT for opener. There is a better lake than that in your back yard. (or do you consider 210 your back yard)

A smallish lake you had to yourself in my back yard?? That could be hundreds of lakes! LOL I have an idea, but it's not that "small". You have relatives up here I can pump for info. LOL tongue.gif

Chuck, I don't tell my relatives anything, rarely my friends, so pump away. (I even lie to my own father about location) It is one of the lakes Josie loves to shoot her mouth off about at Ben's though.

That is correct, a guy can give information on types of lure, bait and depth. But if it is smaller than the Big O or West Battle the name of the lake is part of the code "Don't ask don't tell."


Myself I was out last night and the bite was ok, I boated 4 eyes all on a yellow jig with a fathead. The magic depth was 10', after the sun set the fish were in 6'.


My partner only boated a sunfish, he tried lindy, yellow jig and slip float. Bummer for him but is was absolutely great to be on the lake enjoying the fantastic whether and Men conversation. Why does my wife always ask what we (men) talked about. All men talk about is fishing this time of the year.


Good Luck and Be Safe

Yes, we did talk a few months ago, My dad lives on the SE shore... Comming south through the narrows go around the big point and head straight east and youd run into his house.

I guess the Crappies are slowly comming into the shallows, but nmost were cought in 8-12 feet. I'll let you know how it goes this weekend.

      I think I'll give it a try today.  Looks like it could be windy, which can help a bit with the down river drift.   I might try to get out Sunday as well after the game.  But, I think it's time to start putting the summer toys away for the year.  Just not the boat yet.  Will keep that out for a another 2-3 weeks.  Will tell you how I do if I get out today.   Another thing I'll add.  I've fished above the SCSU dam a bit this time of year.  Always just went a bit north of the Wilson Park landing and pulled some cranks along the east banks.  Normally did pretty well. Would normally work all the way up past the Hospital.

            I was wondering if anybody that lives on the lake has Satellite Internet Service?  If you do I have a couple of questions-  Who is it through?  What does it cost for the applicable data plan you have?  Do you have any complaints, compliments, concerns about it.         I would like to sign up & do it but I don't want to regret having a 2 year commitment or similar & find out it is bad-horrible connection. Do you burn through the Data extremely fast?  We are up to the cabin almost every weekend April - October  & then every other through the winter so not being there enough isn't the issue just wanting to justify having it.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Marcum keeps designing great new products...this is almost a must have for anyone with any Marcum unit. I ordered one for my LX-7, all the features plus a smaller/lighter battery that gives more hours in between charges.....swweeeet!
