      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 .

Windy City Walleye Hunter

Heeeees Baaack!

It is the world famous Windy City Walleye Hunter reporting from the beautiful south side of Chicago. Sorry this is a week late but I had a snafu with my computer switching from dial up (ugh) to high speed broadband (sweet) and lost use of the ole puter for a few days. Our two week trip was a rousing success with everybody bringing home their limits of walleye and I have to say that I was really impressed with the quality of the fish we caught. I had only two or three throwbacks (12-13") in two weeks. It seemed like every Walter we caught went between 16 and 19 inches. My best was a 20 incher though my 19" weighed more, by far. A real fatty. Brain took out my self, my father in law, my step dad, my son and his girlfriend, my other son and his wife and my daughter and her boyfriend and everybody brought back some nice additions to the family freezer. Fishing was tough and you really had to put your time in on the water as the temps teetered near 100 the first week of our trip. Ciscos were floating belly up everywhere on the lake and the fish really had to be coaxed to bite.

Second week was better with temps dropping to normal. We loved our new cabin at Wishbone Resort, they have almost replaced their entire resort with fine new cabins. Some have A/C and all have ceiling fans everywhere, sun decks, screened porches and kitchen cooking islands. High class living to be sure.

Brian was, once again, the ultimate guide. Teaching the "newbies" while putting the veterans on the fish. Only one problem with my step dad who was fishing for the first time and with three lines out trolling crankbaits his lure managed to catch both the other lines. I think Brian had to cut off about 150 feet of Fireline (ouch). Sorry Brian, hope the tip will cover a new spool. My wife won about $150 at the casino in Cass Lake and I won about $300 playing Texas Hold Em at the Northern Lights in Walker. I would have to say this trip was a huge success and like my 5 year old grandaughter says, "This was the greatest day of my life". This was the 7th year for my 6 year old granddaugher who came up for the first time when she was only 5 months old. Cass Lake and Wishbone Resort is quickly becoming second nature to all 4 of my grand kids and next year will be our familys 20th Year Anniversary, we are already planning tee shirts. Like Tigger says, Ta Ta For Now!

      No see-ums were munchin us pretty bad this weekend on a canoe trip too.  Skeeters and flies were not too bad.

      I went out for duck opener near Milaca and it was sweltering HOT.  It was even cloudy/drizzly for a portion of the morning and it was still unbearable.  The DNR needs to move all these major hunting season openers back a week.  Its pretty obvious that fall is getting hotter and hotter.  We got 6 ducks and 2 geese but so it was at least a somewhat decent hunt but that didn't make up for the fact that it was like hunting in Louisiana.

      +1 on the Smooth Moves.  I installed them on my 1860 Ranger last spring and couldn't be happier with the performance in big water.  Lot's of adjustment and they do a great job of soaking up the rough stuff.  They are a little bulky compared to the other options, but I like the fact that they rely on a mechanical adjustment rather than air.  It would be interesting to sample them side by side in the same boat to really see if one is smoother than the other.  A friend of mine has the Wave Pro and he is happy with that also.  I was close to getting the air wave, but I'm happy I went with the Smooth Moves and would buy them again over the other two.  Good luck with your decision.  No matter which way you go, your back will be happy!

      I am still fishing mostly lindys with minnows but getting a few on jig/minnows also. We boated 13 walleyes and 7 jumbo perch this morning. Largest walleye was 21" . Most came out of 24' to 38' depths, close to rocks. Cliff

      Fished Saturday morning and trolled my way a half dozen eyes including a fat 26” plus two giant smallmouth.  Went back out Saturday evening put the trolling rods down and went Jig rappin.  Caught another 6-7 fish including another nice 26+ that popped off as I fumbled to grab the net as it wallowed around next to the boat. Tricky bite for me.  Still managed my limit of nice 16” fish.  Fishing mainly rock transitions and rock structure in 16-22’ fow.   I will be back in two weeks for my final hurrah before heading west to the mountains.

      One goose and one woodie so far today.  And will probably be our total count.  Saw plenty of birds but in a new spot we didn't have dialed in until the end of the morning flights.
