      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 .

Anyone going to Trout over Labor Day?

Recommended Posts

Anyone going to be in Trout Lake over Labor Day weekend? I'll be heading up for just 1 night on Sunday to Monday. I usually only fish Trout in the Spring, so Labor Day will be the latest I've ever been in there. When I booked the permit, it said there are 14 overnight permits allowed, and 14 still available......actually 13 now, cause I got one. smile.gif Just wondering if my Spring and summer spots will still be the spots of choice for Labor Day. Thanks!

Will do. Hopefully I'll see you up there. I too will be in a red Lund, with 25 HP Yamaha 4-stroke. But I don't have the bow mount frown.gif. I'll be in a resort boat that I'm taking from my parents resort with resort stickers on it.

Question: Are there any special regs on dogs in the BWCA? When I go into Canada fishing in the Spring I have to bring rabies papers, but I've never brought my dog into the BWCA before, so not sure. I plan on stopping by the Ranger station next week sometime, but if anyone knows, you could save me a stop after work. Thanks!

Hey sled. It looks like you have the 25 HP Yam 4 stroke. Have you ever back trolled with it? Just wondering if the 4 strokes do actually go slow enough to troll descently with. I have two options for motors to take to Trout. Most of our boats at my parents resort have the 25 HP Yamaha four strokes, but one of the boats has a 25 HP Suzuki 2 stroke. The Suzuki is much faster than the Yamaha, but there's no way I could troll with it. So I would need to bring the transom mount Minnekota with an extra battery for trolling. Or, I can take the Yamaha and leave the trolling motor and extra battery at home. I've taken the Yamaha's for rides around the lake, but have never gone fishing with them so I have no idea how they are for back trolling.

It trolls too fast. And I have a lund 16.5 rebel (lockers, 3 seats, livewell blah blah, blah) so its about 3 times as heavy as an empty boat and I still cant get it to troll slow enough for lindy rigs. The only time I troll with the 25horse is when Im running cranks. Bring the MinnKota.

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
