      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 .

Saturday

Fished saturday afternoon for about 4 hours. Very very hot, and not the fishing. Started out with 2 crappies in our first 2 minutes in the water then a small sauger and then all we could manange was sheepies. Water temp was reading 88 degrees. I have to believe the fish must move deeper, and or to cooler water, just not sure where to look for these areas near lake city. Any ideas would be great.

We fished the Maiden Rock area Saturday late morning / early afternoon as well with about the same results (VERY hot and very few fish). I did talk to some guys that said the bite was decent in the morning in that area with some real pigs caught. We went out Sunday morning in the same general area and with the wind picking up a bit picked up 14 walleye from 15-23" in about 4-5 hours with several smaller fish mixed in. With the breeze the surface temp was down to about 83 degrees (had 90 degrees Friday afternoon). Ours came on Shad Raps running about 14' of water (on the bottom) while I heard others were fishing 15-16' but only running baits about 10' deep..

Thanks for the reports Smitty and mlb. Sound like it can be a hit or miss thing latley.

I gotta get back down to Pepin again soon! Anybody got an extra seat in the boat? I would like to go trolling crank baits sometime.

Dan you could come along with us sometime if you'd like? But it will be a bit before we can get to pepin, We're going to MIlle Lacs for a few days Wed. Then probably have to combine small grain. We have two sets of planer boards, so could run six lines.

I went down Sunday and did VERY well. We had a 2 man limit of nice walleyes in the livewell by 9am.

Then we went pike hunting and boated a bunch of quality pike. Called it a day by 2pm........

Big G congrats on a great day. Without giving me the spot on the spot, can you give me a general area and presentation for wallaees that worked for you last Sunday. Heck, even the pike too. I need a fun day. Looking to head out tomorrow.

Won't say where for the pike, other than we launched out of Evert's and we were using spinnerbaits.

As for walleyes........Well..........Can't really say much there either, without spilling the can of beans. Again, launched out of Evert's. We were using cranks......

Talk to Dean down there, out of Evert's. They are catching quality fish and if you launch out of there, he will tell you where to go and what to do.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!
