      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 .

I finally got out last night. Pretty slow, just a couple of hammer handles.

I arrived at the Ramsey ramp about 8:00 pm. A couple rigs going in and out. I was next in line taking off the back straps on the boat when the @@*%&* behind me with a big ski boat is in a hurry and pulls around me. I was ready 30 seconds later and both spot were full. He backs his boat in the water when a spot opens, but donesn't launch. NOOOooo..he gets out walks in front of his truck and starts hollering for his buddies to hurry up who are somewhere down the parking lot. While this is happening I'm sitting next in line waiting for him. He must have had his daddy's boat. Big ugly colored Nautilus with the ski bridge.

Anyway I get out start fishing Ordway and here come two girls on a jetski racing down the markers screaming like the little girls that they are. You could hear them all over the lake.

I believe I'll launch at dark next time. Anyone else out last night. I stayed out until about 11:00.

Was out Sat morn, fishing bass. Picked up about a dozen LMB and one nice fat 16-17" smallie. Some small pike mixed in, and one big muskie hit a fatrap, but missed.

Bass came on drop shot with brown worm, and a few on texas rig, and two on cranks. I guess two came on tubes as well. I missed a few due to being on phoen (what (Contact Us Please) talks on phone when fishing?.?.?...) Right on weed edge, better on deeper drops.

Hey twood, if you don't mind telling, what is the presentation you use on white bear this time of the year? My son is FINALLY into walleye fishing (not for the lack of my trying) and we've talked about hitting white bear in the near future. Also, I'm planning on doing some fall fishing this year. Is it pretty much a jig and a minnow on white bear during the late fish? Thank you much. WHOOPS! Just went back and reread, lindy and casting raps... I missed that the first time. Did either the lindy's or raps out-perform the other? Thanks again

Went out 8/16 from 8:30-11:30...really really slow, missed a couple of bites, but nothing happening at all. Tried jigging fatheads and trolling/casting some cranks, just no luck.

Don't enjoy WBL or read about much success in the summer but it is my favorite metro WINTER lake for walleyes! Usually the only one on the lake at 2 AM when the biggum's are feeding. Heck, usually the only one on the lake after 8 pm. Won't be long!

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      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.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      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
    • MinnowBuckets
      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.
