      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 am going to be up there at the same time as you, we don't make it as far as Sand Bay, but we almost make it that far. We usually fish between the Brule and just east of Blueberry island. If you are interested, I could put you on the spots I know in that area (for that matter, if you would want, you could join our 6 boat fishing party as we venture out each day... time depends on what happened the night before blush.gif, but I am usually pretty faithful to 7 AM). We stay on the SW corner of Finlander Island. There are a few guys that know the lake really well that I will be fishing with that could perhaps help you out around Sand Bay(?), but I am not familiar with that area. IF you would like to fish with us for a day, for just Friday, the whole weekend...etc. My name is Ben. Just show up at the campsite and ask for me.

I saw a bunch of them but they were on the highway North of Pickle Lake, Ontario. It seems one of the truck drivers forgot to seal up the back of the semi-truck leaving Lower-Windigo Lake and a few crates fell out, ice and all.

Needless to say, we ate well that night! First time I ever had road kill walleye.

ALAT,

That is a sweet beach on Finlander's SE side. If you ever run low on leeches just stand out near your boat in the sand. after a few minutes the leeches will start swimming under the shadow of the boat.

Who can say NO to Free Bait!

Wow thats great road kill walleye. All we get around here is Moose and Deer. FWP lets you pick them up if they are fresh but you have to give some of the meat to the needy.

wow I thanks for the offer but our outpost(cabin) is north of the causeway about 20 minutes and this lake is so big that I have not been any farther east that mermaid rock. I guess that I like the solitude. Anyways I bought a bunch of new flies so if I get frustrated I am going to try my luck with pike and bass on the fly(trout are so lame)!!!!!

      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.

      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.
