      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 .

Anyone had any luck yet in the boats? The shore bite at night has been pretty good, just wondering if the boats have had much success yet? Water temps? Depth? Baits? Shiners have worked good at night for me and throwing small floater raps mostly black and silver. Released a 27 incher from shore on Sunday night

Eyehunter,

How has you're spring/summer been going so far? I haven't been out on the big lake yet, but I have talked with a few guys who have been doing fairly well with lindy's and leeches on the deep weed edges fishing fairly slow. I will post when I get the boat out, should be sometime within the next week. Where have you been shorefishing for walleyes if you don't mind me asking? I don't believe I have ever seen anyone shorefishing for walleyes on Minnewaska, or maybe I wasn't looking close enough.

I have been out a couple of times in the evening pulling #5 shap raps in 10-12 feet of water. The results have been mixed. Couple here couple there on Monday the surface temp was still holding at 58 degrees.

Do you ever go shallower with the hinged bill raps? 4-6 feet of water would seem prime at night. Haven't had much luck trolling raps yet but have had good results throwing small floating black/silver raps. The shiners are in thick all around shore.

No I have not gone in that shallow. I am probably to much a creature of habit. Sounds like a good idea for the next full moon though.....

See ya out there. I'll be the one with a headlamp bouncing around as I'm trying to swat the skeets and dodge the bats, was out on waska late last night before the storm early this morning, and managed a few just before the storm came in. Mostly bullheads, and carp, and sheephead in the shallows right now since this bug explosion hit its been tough. Hit a 21" sunday night trolling in 4 ft just missing the reeds with the electric trolling motor at about .8-1.2 mph with raps. grin.gif Man was it foggy out there almost got lost in it I tell ya.

Nobody got a report? I've been out working the starbuck side, and the bass have spawned now and dropped out to the deep weededge 18 feet or so, right where I walleye fish, I think I could have filmed a bass show last night, I couldn't keep the line in the water long enough to get a walleye. I have only boated 1 walleye all season on waska during daylight hours this year how depressing. confused.gif

There are no posts because there are few fishing and fewer catching. I have tried 4 different evenings. 1 walleye, 1 bucket mouth, 1 smally. I have mostly fished the 14-18 ft weed edges. Even as nice as it was last nite there were few on the lake. Reno doesn't sound much better and I have been on Mary a couple times with limited success. I guess I have to learn some new tactics.

Suspended fish?? I was out last night again on starbuck end, caught numerous perch, sunfish and a few nice post-spawn bass. Rough fish seem to be everywhere up shallow now, and am marking the most fish at 18 feet. My new tactic should be to not put the boat in during daylight hours, but theres got to be a way!! We just need 2 or 3 days with the same wind direction to develop some pattern, and a stable barometer, ya right I'm dreamin. That cloud that rolled over starbuck side around 8:00 last night had me going I chickened out around 9:00 looked nasty. Nice eyes down there on the aqua-view chowing on big perch. confused.gif

No eyes for me this weekend. Spent my time on the water with the kids friday and sunday evening. Hammered the sunfish the kids had a blast. Not a lot of size but with some sorting we could have kept a meal without a problem. The boat will be parked this week as I get ready for a trip to the Boundary Waters. When I return from the Boundary Waters I think I will try to find a night bite. There is so much boat traffic in the evening so we will see what happens after dark.

Ya full moon should be getting pretty hot by next weekend, Nitebite has been great on waska this spring. Got a 23 inch walleye this weekend, but mostly rain and sunburn, perch, bass, and sunnies. We were actually trolling spinners and crawlwer rigs at 2-3 mph and still couldn't outrun the sunfish and perch. Shiners didn't catch a fish for us at all, Jumbo leeches seemed best. Maybe I'll see ya out there I will be trolling the starbuck side up shallow them nights I think. I hear Miltona has had a decent bite and might check that out too. grin.gif

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.
