      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 .

We are coming up on 1/2-1/5 staying at Schuster's for the 1st time. We always have gone with Sportsman's in the past but have not had much luck through the ice the last few trips with them.

Anyone have any luck with them in the past?

For sure! We went out of Shusters 2 years ago, and we would get a mixed bad , Saugets Eyes, Pout and Tulibees. We limited out each day we were there, adding a few monster perch to the mix. Mostly using horizontal red and green glow on the dead stick, and buckshot and AE on the Jig stick.

Have FUN!!

Walleye Wacker,

We are going to be going out of Sportsmen's this year for the first time. Have gone with another outfit the last couple years but couldn't get in with them this year because they were full. We will be staying in a sleeper in early January. Did you stay in a sleeper or day shack and cabin? Please let me know what you thought of the accomodations and fishing. How many people did you have in your group? I know you can't or shouldn't give any bad reports but just wondering what you thought and how you did fishing. From what I've heard in the past they are really good and when talking to them on the phone they sound really knowledgable and willing to help keep you on fish.

Any comments will be appreciated.

Plev,

We usually go w/ 4 guys and in the past had great luck with Sportsman's. The last couple of trips we didn't do so well and thought we would give another resort a try. Sportsman's guides and accomodations were alway great. Food was good too!

This is my first post but i have been an avid reader on this site. This year will be the 5 year my buddies and I have come up to LOTW. We have stayed at Schusters 4 out of the 5 years and have had very good experiences there. We tried out Wigwam one year and when it came down to it Schusters was a much better experience all around. We have always caught a decent amount of fish. This year there are 8 of us coming up on the 5th through the 9th. Good luck!

Walleye Wacker I am also staying with the same group as rafter and we he been going to Schusters on this same trip for 8 years. Even if the fishing isn't great the people at Schusters always make it enjoyable and try to find the fish for you. Also watch out for Rafter he likes to disappear when it's his turn to buy a round at the lodge.

Poupy,

I thought that might be you when I saw your name and checked your profile. You're just jealous because I can shake dice better than you! grin.gif I probably just jinxed myself and will be buying all nite. I'll give SP 139 the message that you & Doug will be leaving early - I think he was planning on meeting you in Mankato. How early are you leaving? Maybe I'll go with. Later.

Hey Rafter... or should I say CircleJ? You should come with us to Red on Monday. Poupy staying on my couch Sunday Night. We'll wait until 8 or so if you can make it.

Poupy is a little slow today. Too many B Lemons last night. Anyway... second Poupy's comments regarding Schuster's. Always first class...

CU Guys on Monday @ Schuster's w/Bucket O' Crappies!

Walleye Wacker,

It was nice to meet you. Our group (15) ended up with enough fish for two meals and we brought some home so we can't complain. Largest walleye was 18". Caught some perch, quite a few pout, and some tulibees.

      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.

      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
    • leech~~
      Plus+1  The size seems to drop off late in the year. Last year bait shops I went to were selling Large as Jumbos and small as large!
    • RuddyDuck
      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.
    • gimruis
      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.
    • BringAnExtension
      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!
    • proguide
      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.
    • CigarGuy
      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
