      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 .

Bay Point

Recommended Posts

bronzeback01

Dead...dead...dead. Got my shack out there this weekend, been fishing twice. One bite between the two outings, no fish. The bay was hot this time last year, don't know what's going on?

Think the cold front has shut 'em down completely. Think I might move a little bit and see what happens, bust out my secret weapon...see what happens.

If anyone else has had any luck let me know cuz I'm almost outa tricks.

fish or die

I was talking to a friend about bay point today and he was down there yesterday and not one bite he had a camera and he said all he seen was shad and sheephead. I think it's disappointing i was really hoping for some northern action like a few years ago but oh well. good luck and merry christmas to everyone

It is a little disapointing. I was getting into quite a few walleye and nice crappie late this fall at bay point, but it is dead right now. I'll be out there tomorrow. I hope this warm front might get 'em goin.

I'll have a report tomorrow night.

BronzeBack how did you end up doing on the 31st. I haven't been to baypoint since i last talked to you. I saw a van on the ice near the docks, i thought for sure it was going to be a bobbermobile.

Made it out for a little bit on Sunday. Not much goin on. Caught one nice gill and that was about it. Not seeing much around the docks or C-wall on the flasher, just a few small ones, could've even been big shad. The fish I have caught have all been unusually aggressive, just hammering the bait. I think they're hungry they're just not there.

However, I went out as close as I could get to the mouth of the bay and open water and found a ton of bait fish that were soon folowed by some decent sized fish that looked like they could've been crappie, also found some that could've been eyes.but these bigger fish were movin too fast to get much of a shot at. Most of the fish were layin right in the mud, I don't think I would've been able to see them without the colorline on my lowrance because the flasher wasn't showing me anything.

Hope to get out again soon. Will have a report.

I know where it's at now. I've been there in the boat I just never knew it had a name.

Sauger huh, any idea what's working? I might have to give it a try.

BB, FYI when you go out from the boat landing do NOT cut over to the right immediately. Go out a little way and then hook left. I would not suggest driving right out to the point either. If you have any questions shoot me an email. hype797@hotmail.com

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
