      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 .

Not sure about WB. But Bald Eagle has been kicking out some fish for my uncle and buds. Best luck has been on lures with black and orange.

Good luck

Was out there last week.... best advice would be to look to spots away from as much boat traffic as possible.

As for the lures: Saw a lot of small sunnies breaking the surface, just read one about a guy on WBL that had a muskie grab his sunny, so maybe look to a crank bait presentation to mimic the sunnies? They were scattered across the weed beds. There's a Rapala shad rap in a bluegill pattern that I wish I had when I was out there.

Good luck!

i have never fished white bear this time of year for the marchetty. i have seen a fair number of fish on large spinner baits come out of there in june and had some luck on small sandcats. later in september and october the fish have come from orange blade/black hair bucktails and large sucker minnows.

there are some great humps to cast in the middle of the first lake between the marked bar and the gap between the island and peninsula. i would try the south side of the island and peninsula first thing in the morning and move out to the humps later.

good luck getting your boat out if you fish past 10 on a sunny day. i was out at the beach a couple of weeks ago and it was a complete zoo; there had to be a 45 minute to an hour wait to get a boat in or out.

If you get out of bed early the lake is just about dead. Was out there on Sunday at 5:30 fished till about 10. And was one of the few boats at the access when I left. Had no issues at all. I was fishing on the south shore by bellaire on sunday. we were on the edge of the weeds pulling cranks and had a huge 50+ incher roll about 20 feet from the boat. They are deffinitly in there. Good Luck.

That has been key for me on White Bear. Out at 4-4:30 and off the water buy 10. The lake is nice and peaceful with just a few muskie guys and some fishing for those other species; sand carp, sun carp, striped carp, small mouth carp etc. It seems like there is a bell goes of at 10 AM and the recreation boats come out and the fish go hide in an instant.

      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!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
