      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 .

Hit Waconia today. Fished from 10am to 3pm... NOT a BITE. I think the storm today shut it down. I tried the pencil reeds on the north east side until it got too windy. Then worked down the east side south past the landing till about Anderson's reef. Tried a variety of plastics (comedas, 7 inch powerbaits t-rigged, tubes), DT's 10 and 16, Spinnerbaits,Buzzbaits, and skitter pops fire tiger and black/silver. NOT one bite... unreal. I'm in one heck of a slump. Depressing. confused.gifconfused.gifmad.gif Any advice Alpid???

i fish waconia just about every weekend. bigget fish so far have been a 7.2lb,6.5lb and a 5.7lb last weekend. stay on the westside of the lake. turds(waconia) bay is very good but it gets very very weeded after june. topwater in the mornings and afternoons, i turn to plastics when the heat picks up. theres a few good spots on the northshore but the water is way to low to get into them.

the 5.7 i pulled out a couple weeks ago came out of 8"-12" water. and it was hot that day. didnt expect it at all.

Thinking about getting out there tonight for some bassin' and wondering if anyone has got out there lately? It's been a couple of weeks since my last adventure. Water clarity, etc...

Last time I got them on the outside edges on small plastics, hoping this still will work as long as things haven't changed too much.

Thanks

Was out there mond. Water clarity was as bad as I have ever seen it. Very green and murky. I personally tried a couple reefs (deep weed edge) as well as alot of turd bay docks up to the rock dock area. Not one bite. Very dissapointing outing. The weather was weird that day (28th) to say the least. Went from dead calm to windy and rainy, to dead calm with a sig. temp drop, to windy again and then some more rain.... It was 61 degrees that day. Anyway, I wish you luck. I tried rattle traps, DT's, T-rigged worms, Jig-n-pig, wacky rigged comedas, tubes, spinnerbaits, skitter pops, and buzzbaits. All to no Avail. I was on the lake for 4.5 hours. frown.gif

Thanks for the response. With the clarity sounding terrible I might end up somewher else on the west side. Monday's weather was pretty wierd though, it has stablized since then. Might be a game time decision.

Thanks

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties

      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day
