      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 .

Namakan Info needed

Recommended Posts

Guest

Going to Namakan Sept.8 for a week. Had trouble last year getting live bait at that time so our group did a lot of trolling with stick baits,shad raps,and rattle traps. We had fair success. Would like any info on locations, baits,and depths for even more success with Walleyes,pike,smallies,and crappies. Anybody know a bait shop that will produce that late in the season?

DW,I agree with Jim I know Gateway Store is open at that time, usually 7 to 7 or somthing like that. Another bait shop South of there is Cold Springs, but there hours vary. Trolling as you mention will get you the most pike and smallies but few Walleyes. The time frame you're talking is usually jig and minnow time for eyes. Normally I'd fish between 30-40+ with a jig and a good ole fat head chub, get the right kind of jig head and you can double hook your minnow. The Gateway does have about the largest jig head selection in the area, many good three color combos and nice gold plated long hook jig heads. Crappies might be scarce depending on water temperatures but the mouth of Ash River might be good. Anyone else?

I have caught crappie in sullivan bay in late summer but the water temp is too high normally the mouth of the river has too much traffic going to the main lake ,that'll drive you crazy, crappies will be tough , but on the other hand mr pike will be tying on his feed bag and I have trolled right at the mouth of nebraska bay with bluefox chartruse no.6 and got big pike 10 plus and all the sharp drop offs from the weed beds just where they drop into deepper water 15-20 ft at the edges I use spiderwire and a swivel sinker 3/4 oz with a 6 ft leader tied to whatever bait I am using I have caught the biggest pike on the blue fox series mostly chartruse fire tiger spoons work great too , a suick in the early mornings in deep bays right in the weeds did produced two 8 pounders last summer aug 25 and many 5 pounders all over the lake I even went back to old reliable dare devil spoon red and white not many people use this thing anymore it works Great when retrived slow use the bigger one 3/4 oz, the pike primarily hit chartruse and red, white with silver works well in the am I have found, Mr wallie has to wait when I'm fishing for pike,
