      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 guess after reading these posts, we did as good as anyone. WE fished out of Ken Mark Ke, with six guys. The first day we all got our limits and threw back a lot more. We caught 70-80 fish saturday, and on sunday it was around the same with 70-80 fish. Absolute blast!Good luck guys!

Wow, sounds like you did a lot better than I did. We fished out of Schusters' on 12/17-12/19 and didn't catch much. The resort tried their best by moving us around every day, but not much was biting. I did manage the largest walleye of my short career - a 26 incher. (Not a huge fish for most, but a good one for me). I think over the three days two of caught about 45 fish or so. Everyone else did about the same as we did in the resort.

Oh well, it was fun nonetheless and I will be back to LOW in January!!

Fished out of Randalls Resort 12/16 to 12/18. 3 full days 4 people, caught over 300 fish total. largest 26", 3 others over 20"s. Most of the fish we kept were 14 to 16"s. We fished from 20 to 25 feet -deeper seemed to be better, especially in the afternoon. Glow red (angel eye Jr.) was best. or Glow white hook below bobber. Fish were active but had to tease them some. Tom and Rob at the resort took good care of us. Needless to say the trip was a blast. Going back on the 13th of January grin.gif.

Three of us fished out of Schusters the 17th and 18th. We ended up with over 60 walleye and sauger. At least half were to small to keep. Had a good time though.

The best lures for us was anything gold, the gold jig-o-bits, and my dad was using a gold and pink buck shot rattler, i had most of my fish on the chubby darter as well, but it was the perch colored one. Also a pink jig worked pretty awesome too. And for us the morning was really slow right away, picked up around 8:45 and was decent the rest of the day. Biggest for us was a 18 1/2 incher, decent fish, cant complain. GOod luck guys!

In one of my typical trips, we learned the "should've been here yesterday"! We fished off of Morris point on Friday as the wind started to really pick up. 4 guys, 6 fish, only one keeper. Rented a house from Wigwam on Sat. to get out of the wind. 4 guys, 12 fish; no keepers. The only good part was the fact I did manage a 9.25lb. eelpout on 4lb. test on Fri. and a 4.5lb. walleye on Sat. Overall, pretty dissappointing trip, especially after reading the reports all week. Oh well, I guess you can't control the weather. We'll be back.

We measured 12" of ice in both places. On Sat., they took us out past Pine Island in one of their track vehicles. Also saw 2 full size trucks out there. I'm sure with the

-20 they had on Sun. and the cooldown again this week, there will be more than plenty of ice by the weekend.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      That's what I planned on doing while I bow hunted but wasn't sure since I got one in spring if I could get another. Thanks

      I was marking various things, but I didn't note a correlation between marking something and catching the walleye.  Also was catching smallies on the same reefs, although maybe at a little different depth.   In fact I was surprised when the walleye hit.  Likewise the other one the next evening.

      Eden prairie purgatory lake is full of carp. You can see them from the dock or the bridge.

          Orvis has some awesome tutorials on their web sites. They teach at whatever level you are in flyfishing. I've gone there many times. They've also got an awesome app with fishing reports including wwater conditions, fly selection and hw to fish it.       Check them out and good fishing.

      I didn't fish any walleye this weekend- only bass. I would fish Friday and Saturday mornings from 530-830 and caught half a dozen largies in the 3-4lb range on a spinner bait. I just got my Garmin fish finder with sideview which will hopefully help me better locate the walleyes. Del, were you marking fish as you'd go over them?

      Latest Landing gossip...... First hearing in trial was july 25th.   Judge took motions under advisement. In the mean time, since none of the locals would work there, they imported a bunch of people on H2b visas as seasonal workers and put them up in a little house in Cook.  Charging them $285 per month.  Like 20 people in the house.   Now many have quit and found other jobs, and some also found other places to live.   They have to hang on since they need to wait until their scheduled airplane tickets.. which they also had to pay for.   That's the news from the Laundromat.... Believe it or so what.
