      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 .

loadmaster, i have only been on the water up there one time. the only thing i can offer would be the same thing they are telling us on here. current reports are the best bet. sounds like the dawg did well. i think i'm going up there next weekend. i have 4 days off(fri-mon)work on tuesday. i hope to make it up at least one day, maybe drag the camper up, and close the w.w. what day/days do you have off? i like the drift fishing til you locate fish. i just hope the gail force winds hold out and the weather is bearable. maybe i'll bring my pontoon, it has railings to keep me from falling out of the boat smile.gif maybe we could work together and catch all the fish? can't do any worse than my smelt trips hehehe. three trips to duluth. twice i had to get wet for nothing, and the time i didn't even get in the water i limited out!(thanks surface)
email me and i'll keep in touch with you.later--------jigglestick---------

Jiggle...Are the railings on the pontoon high enough to keep the auger in when you hit that rogue wave? What's your 1st weeknd in June looking like? Looks like Paul and I will be heading up that way then. Give me a call I feel a game plan being developed over a cold one! Talk to you soon!

Good Luck! Rip some Lips!

The day started out cold and windy and a little rough. Oh and we closed WW thur. night so it was a little rough in more then one way. We were good so no stories that I can remember any way.
Winds died down to a nice breeeze and warmed up. I got a combination sunbrun wind chapped.
Most everyone is fishing 5' of water along the shore. Not a lot of action there so we headed to 8.5 ft off the first ditch NE of Hudec's We marked fish 6' down so we drifted with a white jig and minnow 7' below a bobber. I guess when you have boats move in on you it's a form of flattery so we didnt get to worked up about that. smile.gif We just moved to be alone and wasnt long till we were in fish again. Got off the lake at 6 pm heavy with crappies. Great trip and meet Albatros at WW,hi smile.gif.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!
