      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 .

Powerbait help needed

Recommended Posts

Down to Earth

I'm heading up to Lac Seul on Sunday and need some help. If anyone has any 3" or 4" Powerbait Grubs in colors White or Pearl and you'd be interested in selling them let me know. Everywhere in town is out of stock for the past couple weeks. I'd order from Berkley directly, but don't want to chance they not come in on time as I don't know how they ship. I may need to make a trip over to Cabelas if need be.

Shoot me an email at wilhorn@charter.net if you can help.

Thanks.

The grubs have a minnow head with a twister tail.. right? or are you talking about the Powerbait power minnows? or something different.

FYI: From my experiences, plastics work best in colder water. As the water temp gets above 50+ degrees, I like to hang some live meat out there.

Sent you an email. If that falls through let me know I may have some other ideas for you too.

You should do quite well on plastics up there. I far outfished crawlers and frozen minnows on 2 July fly-ins to NW Ontario.

Uffda,

ever get info on the border for me?

I too am hitting LAc Seul on a fly-in, but not until next Spring. I'll have to pick your brain on plastics as well.

Tyler,

I don't think they necessarily have a minnow head. It's just their standard PowerGrub.

Uffdapete,

Read your email this morning. I'll check and see what the travel schedule is. I also checked with my dad and sounds like he had been able to pick some up as well.

I did stock up with some Lindy Muchie Grubs as I have seen people fish them with good success up on Lac Seul. I got a couple other things to try as well. Really looking forward to the trip as I've never fished Lac Seul before, but everyone I've told that I'm going up there for a week say I won't be disappointed. Less than a week away. Can't wait.

Andy

I have a ton of Gulp bait in the 3 inch minnow including an unopened pearl white pack of 20. Not sure if that is close enough or if you need the exact thing.

Its white 3 inch berkley gulp minnows that you want. The last two years I have been to Lac Suel the white gulp minnow outfished live bait and are much easier to deal with. Try stopping somewhere in the cities on the way up if you can't find any in Roch.

Jim - I emailed you the info/phone no. after you reminded me. Just emailed you some more info - reply to let me know you received it. I was having intermitent cable trouble for a couple months so the original could have ended up in cyberspace.

Exactly!!

They imitate the smelt that walleyes feed on up here in the Canadian shield lakes. Don't overlook the X-10 Raps in "glass ghost" also.

If you are driving up there the Gander in Lakeville usually has a ton of them. The Mills Fleet farm right across the road has all the exude products you'll want as well. Both are right off the hwy 50 exit and a little north up the frontage roads. Also the Gander Mtn store has (had?) a ton of stuff on clearance as well.

you gotta love FM. Andy posts that he needs help trying to find some powerbait before his big trip and he gets a dozen posts with everyone offering to give him their powerbait. You can't ask for a better group! you guys would give the shirt off your back if one of us asked for it. kudos to you all! smile.gif

Yep, FM is a great place to be. I've talked to my dad as well, and it sounds like he was able to find plenty, so we should be well stocked to combat the Lac Seul walleyes. Pretty much a trip of a lifetime for me, especially since I wouldn't consider myself a diehard walleye guy. Leaving on Sunday and won't be back for a week. I'll let you guys know how we did upon return.

P.S. Don't catch all the White Bass out of Zumbro while I'm gone. laugh.gif

Jim,

If I knew I'd tell you right now. I've glanced at the general area on a map the last time I was over to Wisconsin about a month and a half ago, but that has been about it. I'm not familiar with the area at all. We are heading up with a group of guys from my dad's church. I'll be able to give better details of everything upon my return.

      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early
    • ZachD
      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.
    • PRO-V
      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.
    • fish_hunt_guy
      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago. 
    • tfin
      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks
