      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 .

Gull Lake Report

Recommended Posts

Birch Haven

We got my access open this last weekend and, WOW, are we glad we did!

All five groups that setup out here nailed several really nice Walleyes and Northerns. Most everyone is using shiners on small jigs with "up-sized" trebles. The colors vary but the results seem the same. Depths are running around 14' - 18' and we set everyone up just on the downhill sides off the bullruch structures.

I had a couple of reports of extremely large Northerns being hit and missed and did see a few large ones brought in.

The crack problems I've had here on my beach area has seemed to have cured, although, we are all running into spots of slush on our way out and around.

I did fry my plow motor on Saturday but am going to get a replacement today in Bemidji, I hope, so the access should stay in good shape from here on out.

I do know that folks can get out from various other points on the lake and it looks like everyone is having a great year up here.

Stay Tuned!

After plowing out the drifts and opening the holes, I got in a couple of hours on the lake yesterday. I fished from around 2pm until 5:30pm and pulled in a couple of nice Northerns and one keeper walleye. Lots of action but everything was biting lightly. At least they were biting considering the conditions.

Todd Idiemke was working his house about the same time and brought in a couple of monster pouts.

Stay tuned.

Hey Birch Haven, can anybody use your access? How much is it? And can a car travel on it??

Thank you very much.

Our access is open to anyone with $5.00 in their hand per vehicle. I think I sent you an email this morning stating that cars have been going out our way but we all know that can change with conditions.

The fishing is great, by the way.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
