      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 .

Zipple Bay Sleeper Houses

Recommended Posts

i'majigger

Need some info on Zipple Bay Sleeper houses, just want to know if anyone has rented from them and what I could expect if I go up there. Our group has been using another resort but we have not been happy with the service or the houses. I'm not going to say which place it was because I don't want to start a war and also I don't think the place is even in business anymore. I had wanted to try Gibbons Ice Service but it looks like they may have gone out of business as their website has been discontinued. If anyone could give me some info I would greatly appreciate it.

I went last year with my two boys and my dad. It was the weekend when we had the bitter cold 40 something below actual temps. frown.gif Our sleeper house was a bit older, but we did fairly well with the fishing and the staff was great. One night (late around 3am or so) our heater went out and we called on the cell phone and had somebody out there to fix it within 30 MN. Because of our trouble with the heater they knocked some of the money off of our bill without me even having to ask! They were very friendly and I would definatley recommend them. If I would do it again I think I would stay at the resort and fish during the day. The walleye's just dont' seem to bite at night up there. Now if you'r into eel pout that's a different story. smirk.gif Then I would definately stay over night on the lake!

They run a nice resort up there. I have heard lots of good comments and we have always had a good stay up there.

Nick and Deanna run a first class resort. They store the 11X17ft sleeper and I've been using there access for about 8 seasons now. For the first few seasons many nights were spent in there sleeper houses out in the fields.

My wife and I went up there this past summer with our two labs and it was a great time for all of us. In my close to 100 days spent on the resort I can't think of one bad thing to say! Wish I could say the same about other resorts!!!

Give them a try you won't be disappointed.

Yes, night fishing for walleyes on LOW is a waste of time. Last winter however we did catch two walleyes in the dark, which was odd in 28ft of water. The locals say they do bite some nights in very shallow water. If you want some action at night you can put on some glow hooks or jigs and put some dead emerald shiners on the bottom. Don't fall asleep with your lines down more than likely you'll wake up with a mess on your hands. Usually at night fall if we're not sick of fishing we'll toss a bunch of dead shiners on a hook and drop them down, usually they produce a pout or two.

If you want a comfortable stay your better off in the cabin at night and fish house by day.

      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?
