      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 .

Ya they are hitting hard but only for about 15 minutes twice a day lol mostly 13 inchers. Starbuck end was okay but the action has slowed really bad I hopped around out there alot the last couple of days and nights my biggest so far is 16 inches but seriously slow.

The starbuck end has just been bombarded with traffic the last few days, and the fishings suffered, I have hit every little hot spot I know of and let me tell ya anyspot that was remotlely good in the boat has a fish house on top of it so dont expect to find a honey hole all to yourself the north shoreline out in 18-22 feet of water has worked for me lots of perch and a decent but short walleye bite just before dark, problem is they are dinky 12-14 inches I really hope people are throwing them back but Ive seen quite a few fish frozen lazing right out on the Ice, Wheres the DNR?? I havent been checked out there since the 90's I would really like to see a slot limit on this lake anyone else??

There are some houses out there, but you should be able to find a spot that isn't too busy. I fished yesterday in 16-18 ft of water, but only 2 walleyes caught.

I would have to disagree with a slot limit on this lake. There is a volentary slot limit, but I like to keep 12-14 inchers. If they do decide to enforce a slot limit, I wouldn't mind, but if it's volentary then I'll keep them if they're under 15 inches.

Exactly my point what good is a voluntary slot limit anyways? Nothing against the people that actually like to keep the little guys who actually eat what they catch, but why toss them out on the ice to freeze and leave them to die. My thoughts on the slot limit are mainly due to increasing the population of 20+ inchers in this lake and I guess I like the challenge of catching a trophy, Its part of the reason I chase the critters around out there the way I have for all of these years, I'm starting to wonder how many true trophys are left out there if we harvest them at 12 inches we arent really giving them a chance to develop eggs or ever reach their potential I would release anything under 15 myself and never keep anything over 19 topps. It really feels good to watch them swim back down the hole for next season anyways. I fished waska hard the last year and released 12 fish over 26 inches with the largest at 28.5, all were released uninjured to the best of my knowledge, I brought a friend out in july and he caught a 29.5 incher for the wall, and I let my wife keep a 27 incher for the wall she was so proud I didn't have the heart to make her release it she says its the biggest she'll ever catch, i dought it. I could send her into the woods with a fishing pole I think and she'd still manage to bring out a walleye, women have all of the luck. I used to here of 15 pound fish every now and then and even seen one caught once out there, but I think others would agree that with the pressure this lake recieves It would be hard to imagine a walleye outsmarting anglers on waska long enough to make it to 30 inches. I like to hit reno up for them 12-14 inchers cuz you can catch your limit just about evertime out and they are perfect size for the frying pan. With a slot limit this lake could be the BEST walleye lake in the state. Just a thought dont want to step on any toes here.

yeah were somewhere out there...i dont think im ready to give up my exact location for a while but this is the second year in a row ive been on this spot and its shallower than most of the houses out there...ill have a better depth reading and bottom composition when i take the vex and camera out on thursday afternoon. i know we were in about 15-18 feet of water and there was about a foot or so of green weeds on bottom. not sure if were close to the weedline or just on a bed. oh and dont waste money on shiners. three of the walleyes we caught were on crappie minnows sunday night.

Not much action but this morning was a good bite a 19"' and a 21" Shiners. This is the time of year when I wish waska was a bit deeper. This warmer weather and the southwest wind might make today the best day to be out.
