      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 .

I was up last weekend but I didn't get to do much fishing. My neighbor was up the whole week and reported having pretty good luck overall. They were catching sunnies in the pencil reeds in 2'-4' of water, fishing in the open pockets between the thicker clumps. They also caught a few walleyes every evening in 14'-17' of water around Johnson's Bar and Moon Bar, some drifting and some bobber fishing.

As for my outings, I could put you onto some pretty good rock bass fishing, but I think I'll hoard that spot for myself! hehe

Hope this helps.

Osakis is pretty straight forward fishing. The pike will be in the weeds, but for bigger ones, find the outside edge where it drops quick. Run spinners or plugs in about 12-15 feet. Day bite for pike will often produce good numbers of walleyes as well if a good wind is present.

Walleyes will be found on weededges and on the some of the bars. Like was said before, johnson, moon, miller, 1/2 mile, center all have there times and places. If it was me, find the windies shore or bar and fish that. Good luck.

Bait of choice....perch rapalas and nightcrawlers.

Well DRodgers, you probably won't read this till you return but it may be helpfull to someone else. We just got back from a week on Osakis. In spite of heavy rains (3 inches one night and 6 inches a couple nights later), fishing was pretty good. We found sunnies in the pencil reeds especially around the turkey barns. Most were a bit small but big enough to keep, but we got one 10 1/2 inches that weighed 1lb 3 oz. I did not fish hard for walleyes, but we managed to catch 5 keepers from 15 1/2 to 18 inches on the bars in about 18' of water pulling leaches on lindy rigs. We probably had another 5 that were under the 15 minimum. We had a bass fisherman in a cabin next to us who caught lots of 16 - 17 inch fish and he released 1 that was over 19. Oh yeah, one afternoon while walleye fishing with Lindy Rigs on 4 mile bar I caught 2 bull heads that were 14 1/2 inches a piece.

Most memorable part of the week? my 8 year old caught his 1st keeper walleye ever while lindy rigging, I broke my previous personal largest sunfish and bullhead record.

      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!
