      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 .

Superior Entry - 7/16-7/17

Recommended Posts

Fished mornings out of the Superior Entry both Saturday and Sunday. Surface temps were in the low to mid 60s as far as 9 miles out. BD110 and I hit it with lines down at 0500 on Saturday down the state line in 120 fow working towards the south shore. Hooked up on a nice king right away and then followed up with a big coho and a nice laker. Thunder began rumbling overhead so we pulled lines and ran over to the south shore. I believe this disappointed BD110 as he thought it was funny to watch me stare at the north shore watching for the bolt of lightening that would sizzle us to a crisp.grin.gif Anyway, we picked up 5 walleyes between 18" and 24" and lost a bunch more on flat lines running 25 to 35 fow. Sunday was a little choppier but the lakers were happy with that. Set up in 75 fow down the line at 0700. Started hitting lakers right away. Picked up six in a couple of hours trolling over the same 100 yard stretch and it was time to head in. Saturday's Salmon and Laker hit a dipsy dialed at 3 out 100' with an 8" E-chip flasher/Glow Iris JR fly 27" off the bend. Sunday's Lakers were not as discriminating. Green Jewel, purple Jewel, watermelon Needlenose, and Opti with LBB picked them up. Walleyes were looking for variations on green sticks run 150' off the board.

We'll be on the water at 0400 tomorrow. Anybody else headed out?

I have to head up to Duluth tomorrow to pick up some stuff. If you can do a evening stint I would be willing to go. I work the night shift tonight and I get done at 4AM, so that is out of the question grin.gif. Give me a call here at home. Call Steve for the numbers.

Thanks for the report lota, there haven't been many reports yet this year. I myself have only been out once this year and it was my first skunk, I was out of the knife river a couple weeks ago. I am prob going to be up this weekend with a buddy, don't know what port we'll go out of yet though. Hopefully I will have some good news to report this time.

Have you been getting many salmon out of duluth still or have they moved up the shore for the most part?

      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!
