      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've gone to Lizzie several times this summer. Pulling shad raps in 20-22 feet of water. Not getting great numbers of walleyes but nice size fish (18-20"). You'd pick up enough northerns to keep from getting bored and some of them have hit the 6-6.5lb mark. You might pick some up with spinners and live bait. Just go fast enough to out-pace the panfish.

Shae --

Hot tip just in -- White Earth has been very good in the morning. Got that from a buddy that has been doing well on Sunday a.m.

I also hear you can catch a few on Big C in tha a.m. -- but only if there is a little chop.

Good luck let me know how you did.

i will be honest about Bad Medicine. I have been on it for many years. When it heats up there is no better walleye lake around. Just have to be patient and work at it. I t has some monsters in it also. Deep and clear. Not sure where they are working the 12 ft water, but everyone is usually fishing trout so the good eye spots are usually pretty vacant. Nooner

Decided to go with Dahitman's advice and try White Earth today. My buddy, Scot, came up from Glencoe and I told him about the report of a morning bite on White Earth. Well, by the time I got him out of bed this morning and he told me we needed to find trolling motor batteries and breakfast we got on the lake a little after 11:30. So much for that morning bite! We did get sixteen walleyes on crawlers in 20-28 feet of water. Only five of them were keepers. He had to get back to Glencoe tonight so, we left before the best evening bite got going. Not fast and furious by any means but steady bite through the afternoon and evening. Thanks for the report Dahitman.

Has anyone been having luck pulling cranks lately? I fished Big C yesterday and got 2 almost immediately. One was a "Hitman Walleye" tongue.gif and the other was a nice 17"er. After that the pleasure boaters were out and moved in on us crazy.gif

We were running the weedlines in 12-18fow. I did notice some marks deeper (22-28 fow) but we couldn't get our baits that deep.

I tried Big C. yesterday too. None on cranks. Nine on bottom bouncers and crawlers. Three eaters and six dinks. Only one of Dahitman's 10 inchers so I don't think I was on any of his secret spots. Hey, I've, did you have anyone else in the boat with you?

Yes, I had one other passenger. I was driving the boat. We were out from around 11 to 3pm. Saw quite a few fishing and pleasure boats out there too!

If you were gone by 3:00, we didn't cross paths. I got there about 3:00 but the boat I was thinking about was a little later in the day.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
