      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

lotalota

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.

She landed a 27" and 28 3/4 inch walleyes. Shes still bragging about it. I keep telling her its a team effort out there smile.gif

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?

      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early

      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.
    • PRO-V
      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.

      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago. 
    • tfin
      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks
