      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 .

Fishinwith Jake, We have rented a house from McQuoids for Sunday and Monday too. We are going from 1:00-1:00. We have the ten holer.I am glad they have a tv in the shack to watch the vikes. Any idea where they have their houses? Gravel? One thing we are making sure to bring is small fatheads. Sometimes that is all that works... Thanks, Joe

Muskyjoe,

Does McQuoids have more than one ten holer? I thought they just had one. We too have a ten holer rented from 1:00 - 1:00 Sunday and Monday. Actually, I just got my confirmation from them a bit ago.

Hopefully you guys aren't double booked! Would be great if both of you could post back how you do. We have "The Lodge" through McQuoid's next weekend (1/21 - 1/23). Hopefully the location is decent. We went through Izaty's last year and they put us right over 30' of mud in mid-january...one lonesome walleye from the shack all weekend. keep us posted!

Well, I'm not sure how many people are in your house but we will have 5 guys. So, how about a gentleman's bet? Who ever reports the most fish CAUGHT over the length of stay wins! We will post our numbers Tuesday morning. Do we have a deal? smirk.gif

McQuoids is the only place I will stay on Mille lacs. They have by far the best sleeper houses I have ever seen! Their staff is excellent and their houses are top notch. I cant say enough about them.

They have nice houses, but I am always surprised how close to shore they are. I was hoping we would have been out farther than Hawkbill point.

Just south of Hawkbill here myself, can see the rentals out my window, i've gotten skunked most of the season so far. This last weekend I was able to produce a few perch including at least two Jumbos, even pulled up a smalleye on Saturday, Most of the pearch were on Sunday right after the game. good luck to all..

Well, we didn't have any luck this weekend. McQuoids had us out past Hennipen Island, in about 25 feet over some great rock piles. We figured it would be a decent spot. Nope. 1 eel pout all weekend. On Saturday we ventured down the road a few more miles into about the same conditions and saw nothing. Moved over right off of the rock island in about 13 feet of water, one tiny northern. That's about our typical luck for the lake though.

      Sorry, don't remember TJ Hooker.  Besides I make it a practice to avoid hookers....  (rim shot)

        This post is turning into an 80's  TJ HOOKER episode! To fun to turn off an so bad it needs to be made fun of. : )

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day. 
    • Surface Tension
        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
